Back then they were labeled black blah blah blah
Do they STILL identify as black?
This is hilarious!!!
It's like having a Black Panther movie and playing the role of Afeni Shakur, they have Kate Hudson...imagine the posters and stills for that

Left him for the co star , hoes got no shame or loyalty
GMB no losses
I don't think she is suppose to be black.
Thecoli over exaggerating shyt again.
The top minority groups in England are black folk and Indians.
I don't know much about civil rights in England especially in the 70s, but I am sure they had their own struggles.
Ol'girl is fine as hell I am going to watch.
ETA: Coli Militants lost. Getting worked up over foreign shyt they know nothing about.
she is playing an indian character..Jas.
good shyt she left that dude..look at him?
Let me say something on behalf of all Indians: if we identify as Indian instead of black, you say we're the white man's monkey and we hate black people etc.
If we identify as black, you clown us and don't accept us as your brothers.
So what the hell are we supposed to do? I'm all for minority unity but it seems with the Coli militant folk, no matter what we do it's not good enough, whether that's seeking unity with black people or going our own way.
Love and loyalty is dead
Imagine if Samuel L Jackson left his wife after Pulp Fiction to marry some rich cac chic...
(Btw SAJ got 36 years with LaTanya Richardson)
she fell in love with patel (dev) then went on to do better things than with Apu..
live and learn and move on and gain new experiences.
A few seconds into the trailer you can see it's not set in the US. I'm guessing most of the people reacting have zero knowledge on the racial and sociopolitical climate of London in the 70's. For all we know her character is based on a real Indian women. Maybe them being in an interracial relationship is part of the story
Took me 1 minute to check imdb and see that her character has an Indian name. There's multiple Indian people in the cast so I'm assuming that this is something unique to London at the time.
Except they casted an Indian woman to play an Indian character
Indian people are not black.
The fukk is wrong with you?
My heartstrings are pulled...
My post was in response to the numerous posts referring to Indians being lumped in as black in GB and participating in the "struggle" which is true and was already known by me since I studied this stuff in college.
However, lets call a spade a spade here. The identification was by force, not choice and since then the South Asian community has adjusted accordingly.
