Words For Warfare

"If I can open the door for more Black actors and actresses to make this film industry a little bit more color-blind, that's really my goal in this business. I want people to learn from one another, have more compassion for one another, and tell human stories with actors of all ethnicities - not the homogeneous way it is right now." Paula Patton

Thank you, Paula! As an actress of color I can agree. We need all the help we can get!!

Hello there,

I haven't heard of Paula Patton. I had a feeling that when Halle Barry turned 40 that the industry moguls would start searching for another Halle-look-alike....

Is Paula in any major films that I have missed? I'd like to see how well she performs in a character role.

She must understand that Hollywood will never be color-blind and has no desire to even PRETEND to be.

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!

More people might know of her, though, as the wife of the singer Robin Thicke, whose hit "Lost Without You" was in honor of her.
