You can't even argue that anyways, because like I said, The Honeymooners is a WHITE 50s/60s classic show (JUST like Mission Impossible) that was turned into a movie with a BLACK cast. There's no reason to say race is the reason why one wouldn't get made, because a very similar one did.
If you don't want to pump million of dollars into a movie that happens to have a black cast, then their race MUST be the reason, (instead of the hundreds of other important things about a movie), good to know.
I gotta ask my elders what the simllarity between Mission Impossibe the movie and the Honeymooners the movie is.
If black folks running around blowing up stuff all over Prague would be hard to accept, then have em run around blowing up stuff in Lagos.
The point still is, the studios said they wouldn't know how to market this film, it's a film with a majority black cast, tons of movies about the subject matter with majority white casts get made. Hard to exclude race (racism or not) as a part of that equation.
Oh, and I gotta go, me and two other black dudes are sticking out like sore thumbs at a ski resort. Might be confusing a bunch of people.
