Black rights groups have hit out against superstar Angelina Jolie for darkening her skin, in order to play a mixed race woman for her latest movie. The Star (UK) reports today on how an anti racism website wrote " There are plenty of mixed race or back actresses who could have done a damn good job in this role instead".
I guess some of the suits felt that Angie could make them $$$$ if she played the role. However, it is disgusting that they felt the need to do this, and there is really no excuse.

WASHINGTON – As the country honors National Coming Out Day today, a day set aside every year to celebrate gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and straight supportive Americans living openly and honestly about their lives, the Human Rights Campaign is proud to announce the involvement of celebrities ranging from international recording artists to sports legends stepping out to promote equality.
Pink, Lance Bass and Reichen Lehmkuhl, Billie Jean King, Laura Linney, George Takei, Perez Hilton (with Jessica Simpson), Ron Reagan Jr. have all been featured as an ally in the Human Rights Campaign’s “Project Snapshot”, an online public art project encouraging all Americans who support equality to live life openly and be engaged in this lifelong process. Americans, both gay and straight, from all walks of life will participate in “Project Snapshot” by posing with a sign of the Human Rights Campaign’s 2006 National Coming Out Day theme “Talk About It”.

“The most important thing each of us can do for equality is to be open with the people in our lives and talk about it,” said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese. “Choosing to live openly – whether you are coming out for the first time ever, or for the first time today – is a courageous step that should be applauded by all Americans.”
