Rihanna 1st Black Person to NOT Die in First 3 Minutes of a Predominantly White Movie (BattleShip)
Rihanna also known as Chris Brown’s favorite sparring partner was cast in a cinematic version of one of the least interesting board games I attempted to play as a child “BattleShip”; being one of the only lead characters of color everyone expected her to die in the 1st few minutes as most black people do in movies …but she didn’t.
She actually made it through to the end and even managed to get a few white people to sacrifice their life for the sake of her living.
Battleship director had the following to say:
“I really made a conscious decision for Rihanna to live throughout the movie, because in history on and off the screen we all know black people die prematurely when compared to their white counterpart.
This has gone as an unknown fact since no black people actually went to see Battleship. Kind of like that whole hide something in books because black folks don’t read. It’s an intelligent well written movie where I basically gave a shout out to black people.”
Rihanna wasn’t able to be reached; She was somewhere busy being an industry whore. —CreamBmp
Any black folks go see Battleship? Prove him wrong.
