Casting Company Calls Racist Ad ‘An Innocent Mistake’

TEXT

A casting company is under fire for creating a racist ad seeking ill-shaped dark skinned girls with hair weave for a Universal Pictures movie on the rise of rap supergroup N.W.A.

Gossip tabloid TMZ.com spoke with a rep for the Sande Alessi Casting agency that created the controversial casting ad.

From gossip tabloid TMZ.com:

The casting agency used an A, B, C, D scale to group the women. Here’s the breakdown:

A) “Hottest of the hottest. Models” (open to women of any race)
B) “Fine … Beyonce is a protoype here” (light-skinned women)
C) African American girls … Medium to light skinned with a weave
D) “These are African American girls. POOR, not in good shape. Medium to dark skin tone.”

People were upset … since the “D” group was the only group associated with an economic class — “poor” — and it was made up of
only dark-skinned, out of shape black women.

But we spoke with a rep for SANDE ALESSI CASTING who tells us … the ad was an “innocent mistake” — and when it comes to casting the “poor” people, they’re also looking for women of various skin tones and body types.

As for people who claim the A,B,C,D grouping system was racist — Sande Alessi Casting says it’s the usual method they use to look for different types of people for any project and it wasn’t meant to offend anyone.

      Innocent Mistake-SCHINNOCENT-MISFAKE!

      I am pretty pi$$eed off with this mess…
      The casting agent with an(Italian) surname as Alessi, knows nothing about grading types. My question is, are they getting instruction from the Director on the types of women they need-then they are separated and graded?

      I was actually trying to reach out to F-Gary to see if I can get my son to audition because I think he could pull off MC Ren, and I see they’d already passed that phase of casting NWA characters, but this is terrible.

      I sent this to him so he can see as a break out actor trying to get his feet wet in the industry what is out there and what all people think about dark men and women. Very ignorant and sad.

      With Period pieces and films, it doesnt sound any better with the males.

      My son doesnt have any of this and he darn sure doesnt look or act like a gangmemeber with fanny packs and high top fade with lines cut out on the temples, but I know with acting, it comes with the territory to get into character.

      I am definitely no stranger to ti because when I was doing stage plays and found myself being typecasts into “mammy” AngeMima- types…I was like hey wait…why am I WEARING the apron and do rag….I quit!

Not too long ago, photos like this would NEVER have been released to the public. But now they have them available. The goal is to desensitize the public to these things so when they happen more frequently, there is no longer shock value. And trust and believe things are only going to get WORSER

    • MisUnderstood

      Hold up :stop: She’s at a Christian college & transition into a man?!?! So she wasn’t happy with the way God made her? And now wants to force the college to accept shim?! This ish is beyond ridiculous. :smh:

      Morning Roses :bye:

      This is just too much. If you were born with certain parts and have them, then that is where you stay. Period. Unless you want them to make a dorm just for ‘people in transition’. It just causes too many problems. I have plenty of gay friends but this transgender issue is getting out of hand.

      Lil Mo can sang her azz off but the reason she has not made it big is because nobody knows how to market her ghetto gutter azz. She would need a complete over haul from her appearance to her mouth and attitude. And record companies aint spending as much money as they used to for complete transformations. U gotta come to them with SOME sort of potential. I like Mo but she will NEVER be as big as she deserves in Music until she polishes her look and image. :tea:

      Seriously, all of this is true. After watching all the R&B Divas shows you can see why these chicks haven’t gone further. Most of them come off as difficult to work with or hard to manage, and many times, no matter how good your voice is, that can be a major deal breaker…

      @LoveZoe: I watched the 1st season of House of Cards but I’ll be mad having to wait on the 3rd season. So I figured I’d watch 2 & 3 when we have our next snow storm LOL

      @Luvn Life: Tyrant sounds good. I’ll look that up

      @Jenie: I work in a lab and I’m a science geek so that’s part of why I like Dexter but I’m at the part where he finally got the Trinity killer and if I worked with them I’d be like ” too many of us are dying and ya’ll supposed to be cops but keep sleeping with serial killers.

      Keya :thinking: RECAP. It’s hard to remember but let’s see
      Lil Mo: Garbage puss with a blonde wig with no scalp visiable. Over the top. EXTRA. Musty looking. Said she woke up a realized she no longer loved her husband. They show old clips of him with a soggy white tee on looking like Grimace
      Claudette: Beautiful girl. Seems nice. Great voice. Seems troubled. I think they are trying to bump up her role this season and try to make her fetch
      Chante Moore: She seems sneaky. Gotta wait to find out why. But the voice and body :bow:
      Michel’le: Seems like she ready to die #biggie But she hasn’t managed to and is giivng PSAs on trying not to :shrugs:
      Chrisette: Sweet and humble it appears. Has a momager….. jury still out
      Is that all of them?
