Jackie Collins on the Racial Divide in Publishing
This is noteworthy....BSA Jackie Collins comments on her website about Penguin Group's race discrimination against Millenia Black:
A quick note---I've been so tied up lately, but I hope to get back to spending some time in blog land (and back on my soapbox) shortly after the new year. Until then, Happy New Year!"I’ve never heard of such a thing! Oh yes, actually I have, because when I first wanted to make the movie of Chances I was told I was going to have to make the black family white for one of the networks. I refused, and eventually I made the series with a half white cast and a half black cast. There should be equality in the world, and there should never be discrimination of any kind."
