In this week’s “people have lost their damn mind news”, the casting for the upcoming N.W.A Straight Outta Compton is proving to not only be racist, but also sexist. Although Ice Cube’s son, O’Shea Jackson Jr., has been cast in his role, the casting for the extras has proved once again, Hollywood and the people working on films are out of their minds.

Gawker reported that Sande Alessi Casting, the company responsible for posting the extra’s casting included the following:

SAG OR NON UNION CASTING NOTICE FOR FEMALES-ALL ETHNICITIES- from the late 80’s. Shoots on “Straight Outta Compton”. Shoot date TBD. We are pulling photos for the director of featured extras. VERY IMPORTANT – You MUST live in the Los Angeles area (Orange County is fine too) to work on this show. DO NOT SUBMIT if you live out of the area. Nobody is going to be flying into LA to do extra work on this show – and don’t tell me you are willing to fly in.

SAG OR NON UNION FEMALES – PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR SPECIFIC BREAKDOWN. DO NOT EMAIL IN FOR MORE THAN ONE CATEGORY:

A GIRLS: These are the hottest of the hottest. Models. MUST have real hair – no extensions, very classy looking, great bodies. You can be black, white, asian, hispanic, mid eastern, or mixed race too. Age 18-30. Please email a current color photo, your name, Union status, height/weight, age, city in which you live and phone number to: [email protected] subject line should read: A GIRLS

B GIRLS: These are fine girls, long natural hair, really nice bodies. Small waists, nice hips. You should be light-skinned. Beyonce is a prototype here. Age 18-30. Please email a current color photo, your name, Union status, height/weight, age, city in which you live and phone number to: [email protected] subject line should read: B GIRLS

C GIRLS: These are African American girls, medium to light skinned with a weave. Age 18-30. Please email a current color photo, your name, Union status, height/weight, age, city in which you live and phone number to: [email protected] subject line should read: C GIRLS

So basically, the black women have been categorized according to looks, hair and skin color.  A, B, C, D—-for the record “A” casting is always considered the most desirable casting, and “D”, well you can figure that out.

Thanks Hollywood for letting us know how you really feel.

  • Okay, I’m insulted. Why do we continue to categorize black women and then if you’re poor, not in good shape medium to dark skinned you’re a D? WTH?
