I’m sorry if you feel there isn’t enough PoC representation in my videos.
I’m answering this question because I feel it’s a valid discussion to be having and I’m glad it’s a topic of concern within our audience and community, but I most likely won’t be responding to any follow ups or questions on the same topic in the future because it’s an issue that I personally don’t want to spend my time discussing at length. As a creator, I prefer talking about process and interpretation.
I’m going on a couple nights of no sleep right now, so apologies in advance if anything isn’t phrased as well as it maybe should be.
this is a good read for a lot of reasons though.
When I got Robin Williams’ rider, I was very surprised by what I found. He actually had a requirement that for every single event or film he did, the company hiring him also had to hire a certain number of homeless people and put them to work. I never watched a Robin Williams movie the same way after that. I’m sure that on his own time and with his own money, he was working with these people in need, but he’d also decided to use his clout as an entertainer to make sure that production companies and event planners also learned the value of giving people a chance to work their way back. I wonder how many production companies continued the practice into their next non-Robin Williams project, as well as how many people got a chance at a job and the pride of earning an income, even temporarily, from his actions. He was a great multiplier of his impact. Let’s hope that impact lives on without him. Thanks, Robin Williams - not just for laughs, but also for a cool example."
