  1. Hmmmmm….it looks like Gugu Mbatha-Raw is going to be the go-to interracial girl for the moment. I guess she’s going to replace Zoe Saldana.lol Personally I’m growing a bit tired of the slave dramas. And it seems as though the studios love to do those tragic mulatto films as well. The black experience is so much more that playing slaves,butlers and maids. *sigh*
