Are Black Actors Too Sexy for ‘Magic Mike?’

Magic Mike

Warner Bros. Pictures

Women (and some men) everywhere are going crazy over Magic Mike— the erotic new film loosely based on the former stripper past of actor Channing Tatum. However, it’s pretty obvious that black male actors were deliberately kept out of the film for whatever reasons. Even though it’s perfectly fine to produce an all-white film on occasions, we can’t help but wonder why no black men were cast. Black folks are known for our dance moves and unrivaled rhythm of motion. So whats the real reason behind the snub? Some think black men would’ve made the film too raunchy. Are black actors considered to be too sexy for certain roles?

Let us know what you think and tell us who you would cast in the rumored Magic Mike sequel.
