50 Cent hopes Obama would help end black-white Hollywood divideNovember 15th, 2008 - 3:20 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, November 15 (ANI): 50 Cent is looking forward to the working of President-elect Barack Obamas administration, because he hopes the victory will help wipe out racism from Hollywood.
The American rapper claimed that though African-American actors such as Will Smith, Samuel L. Jackson and Denzel Washington had made their mark in Hollywood, yet their success did not represent the plight of all black artists.
Fiddy, who shot to fame with the multi-platinum success of his albums Get Rich or Die Tryin in 2003 and The Massacre in 2005, said that the industry still held the white and black barriers and Obama could bring the divide one step closer to its end.
There’’s two Hollywood. There’’s white Hollywood and there’’s black Hollywood, Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
Those lines are still there, but this is a step to getting rid of those lines, he added. (ANI)
