Don Cheadle: Having a White Co-Star in 'Miles Ahead' Was a "Financial Imperative"


.....Cheadle called the decade-long effort to get the film produced, a "Herculean" task, thanks to the lack of interest from studios and other industry financiers. So he had to take to crowdfunding, launching an Indiegogo campaign, which successfully raised about $360,000 total. He also used some of his own money to help fund the film.


In essence, he wasn't able to make the film he really wanted to make, because he could not raise the necessary funds to make *that* film, and apparently almost wasn't even able to make a film at all ("explosive" or not), unless he added a white co-star.

Calling it "one of the realities of the business that we are in" - essentially, the self-fulfilling prophecy that films with all-black casts won't sell as well as those with white actors in them - Cheadle added, "There is a lot of apocryphal, not proven evidence that black films don't sell overseas... Having a white actor in this film turned out to actually be a financial imperative."

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
