A Reader Says Hollywood Made A Movie Where The Heroes Are White Males. Guess Why?
From: Ryan Kennedy [Email him]
I highly recommend this movie: Only The Brave.
As I watched the movie I thought, “why are the Hollywood movie diversicrats letting all the heroes be white males?”
At the end I got my answer. It was a true story.

James Fulford writes: Only The Brave is based on the story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, a firefighting team that suffered terrific loss of life in Arizona in the Yarnell Hill Fire in 2013. Like the movies Black Hawk Down, in which there is only one black among 40 Army Special Ops troops in Somalia, or Act Of Valor, in which none of the Navy SEALs is black, the filmmakers are constrained by (a) the reality that the majority of highly qualified professionals willing to give their lives for their fellow men are white, and (b) any attempt to lie about the honored dead will lead to a terrific outcry from their families.
