Zendaya Snags Producer Credit on K.C. Undercover


Actress Zendaya leverages her popularity during contract negotiations with Disney...

From the July issue of Cosmopolitan  
On her return to Disney as the star and co-producer of K.C. Undercover:
"The only way I was going to come back to the Disney Channel was if I was in a position of more power. One thing that is really important to me is diversity on the channel. It's hard as a young person of a different ethnicity or background to look at the TV and not see anyone who looks like you. Representation is very important."

@12:00pm - It's refreshing to know there are Black Americans with genetic competence. Yes, Zendaya is mixed race--biracial. She's supposed to embrace her TOTAL identity because she has more than Black genes in her DNA. The traits are VISIBLE!!!

There are Blacks who deny or ignore their human ape Caucasian DNA admixture and pretend that we don't see the permanent genetic recessive traits that causes variations of DEPIGMENTATION over generations. These folks have mixed ancestry that differentiate them from FULL BLACKS. Mixed race is not Black. It is understandable why mixed race do not relate to AUTOCHTHONS and are predominantly 'white-acculturated' in their values and pathology. The behavioral modification protocols of White hegemony has done extensive damage to AUTOCHTHONS worldwide. It is why REAL BLACKS are invisible and devalued to mixed race.

Blacks need an IDENTITY that UNIFIES us.

We have to be HONEST about race and skin color and understand the importance of blood lineages.

Mixed will NEVER be the standard for the Black Eternal Female and Black Eternal Male no matter how WHITE PATHOLOGY promotes them to be the standard replacement.

LOL @ oppressed ex-con!!!

FWIW though, whites still make up a majority of the American population (about 65%), therefore, it shouldn't be surprising that the majority of people you still see on TV will be WHITE.

But you go girl! You getcho Raven on and get that producer credit so you can pass on residual checks to your future kids!!!
