The NAACP has teamed with Tommy Oliver and Adam Platzner of Confluential Content (OWNs Black Love, Sonys The Perfect Guy, Sundance Award Winner Kinyarwanda) for #ITakeResponsibilty, a new campaign launched today that encourages White people to call out racism and commit to supporting Black lives.
#ITakeResponsibilty kicked off today with a forward PSA featuring Julianne Moore, Kristen Bell, Sarah Paulson, Aaron Paul, Aly Raisman, Bethany Joy Lenz, Bryce Dallas Howard, Debra Messing, Ilana Glazer, Justin Theroux, Kesha, Mark Duplass, Piper Perabo and Stanley Tucci as they took responsibility for the ways theyve perpetuated racism through silence or inaction, and their commitment to support organizations that fight for the rights of oppressed communities
Its critical that we understand and accept that racism is a white people problem a problem that, collectively, we need to look to ourselves to fix, Platzner, Partner and Vice Chairman, Confluential Content tells Deadline. I had never seen it quite that way before. Recent events in this country have shown us that we need to take a different approach if were to be impactful. Thats what led me to create this effort.
He adds, We are in an industry with the power and capability to drive change, internally and externally. This PSA is how we can begin a conversation among ourselves to achieve results, while at the same time standing up for our black friends and family. Each of us need to start taking responsibility for this role in our daily lives. With everything going on it didnt feel right sitting on the sidelines.
As the hashtag suggests, the campaign is inviting others to take responsibility and stand in solidarity with the Black community and make their own videos. In addition, the PSA urges people to donate to the NAACP, Black Lives Matter and the Bail Project.
Watch the PSA above.
Ok, Ill be the first. I readily admit the NAACP is racist.
With a collective IQ of 50?
All of these celebs talking about “helping the black community” sound to me like “we need to help; blacks are incapable doing anything”.
My response is a middle finger and fugetaboutit.
Exactly. White liberals are the true racists.
Very disappointed in this apparently endless Guilty White Liberal pearl-clutching. Especially Stanley Tucci, for some reason.Weakness.
I’ll come out of my disenfranchised membership to say “I’ll bow to no-one!” Screw these people. Come on down mfers! Let’s get this over with once and for all! Chicken chits!
OK, “Defund the Police” is racist. more blacks will die when there are no cops to keep them from killing each other...
Its easy to confess group guilt (phony or otherwise). It means no one has to confess personal guilt. Why dont these Hollywood stars Just come out and confess the sin of hating black people? No single person is guilty if the group confesses. This is the new righteousness of our day. The only EVIL people are those who do not bow to the group!
Yeah at this point, I’ve stopped watching all celebrity interviews and award shows.
It's called "Affirmative Action".
much more polite than my response.
#ITakeResponsibility? Really? If black people would only take responsibility for their lives, this would all be over.
This is complete insanity. I wonder if this is how the Jews in Germany felt.
I feel like the poor old man while everyone else around him is singing "Tomorrow Belongs to Me" in "Cabaret".
Americans are racist...
...every four years.
