    I think it is just that people aren't viewing this just one instance. It's the continuation of a backwards Hollywood tradition, and people are blown away at the lack of diversity in mainstream studio pics. Seeing those pics posted in this thread probably also reminded us of how ugly it has been in the past.

    Tbh, none of Cameron Crowe's films strike me as very culturally diverse, now that i think of a few off the top of my head. It sounds like the casting for Aloha might not be that horrible looks-wise, but a lot can be said for consideration of racial and cultural diversity in films.

    Just been very busy with life. Work, working out quite a bit and studying for some fitness trainer certifications, plus i'm back in school, my kid just finished pre-kinder. Ahhh, its been wild!

    I have missed my GR! I had to come back to hear you all lambaste Joshie Duggar and his sick parents. I am going to try to check in more often!
