Sexist and Racist?

February 03, 2001

Lorenza Munoz's article concerning interracial dating featured in the movie "Save the Last Dance" lacks courage ("The Delicate Dance of an Interracial Love Story," Jan. 12).

Munoz says that "because of the potential for controversy, race and class are dicey issues for studios." This is true only when the man is black and the woman is white. If the guy is white and the women are either black, Hispanic or Asian, movie studios don't have any problem showing interracial relationships.

The attitude of studio executives is that white men are entitled to date women of all colors, but black, Hispanic and Asian men are not entitled to date white women. Munoz should have mentioned this controversial issue in her article.
