Actress Rachel True, who co-starred in teenage cult favorite supernatural film The Craft, says she is being snubbed by Craft reunion conventions because of her race.
Rachel, 54, is best known (in the Black community) as Mona Thorne on the UPN sitcom Half & Half with Chico Benymon, Valarie Pettiford, Thelma Hopkins and Essence Atkins.
The actress took to Twitter.com last week to vent her frustration at not being invited to the unnamed conventions. Her Craft co-stars - Neve Campbell, Fairuza Balk, and Robin Tunney - were all invited to conventions.
"I think it's interesting these conventions are booking Neve, Fairuza & Robin all together, but excluding me. Sounds about white," she tweeted on January 25. "Maybe it's just an oversight but...I mean.. it's a film about 4 f*cking girls not 3."
In another tweet she wrote, "I'm not calling out any one convention in particular because it's more than one & they don't realize the casual racism to the choice. So if you attend those sorts of things let them know.. especially if you're with, I guess."
While some of her followers defended her, others point out that Rachel is not Black. She is mixed race. Her father is Jewish and her mother is mixed with Black and American Indian.
Rachel replied to one Twitter user who accused her of being self-absorbed.
"This is not about self-absorption. It's about racism, parity & [money] speaking up is costing me $ but may help younger folk coming up down the line achieve those things."
