Eternals and Obi-Wan Kenobi actor Kumail Nanjiani recently accused Hollywood executives of racism claiming they are refusing to allow non-white actors to play villains.

In a lengthy interview with Esquire about his upcoming TV mini series Welcome to Chippendales, Nanjiani admitted to the fact that Hollywood executives and casting agents are not casting non-white actors in villain roles.

Nanjiani first posited, “I think that Hollywood now – even though they’re trying to be more diverse – is still weird.”

Esquire’s Henry Wong then went on to summarize Nanjiani’s argument, “The problem, Nanjiani wagers, is that good intentions can sometimes lead to misguided solutions: if the bad guy is a brown guy, what message is that sending?”

As it’s framed by Wong in the Esquire article Nanjiani concurred telling him, “And that’s just as limiting as anything else. I want to play more bad guys.”

Nanjiani then compared himself to fellow Marvel Studios actor Sebastian Stan, who not only plays Winter Soldier in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but is also able to jump out of the role and become a character named Steve, who is an organ-harvesting cannibal serial killer in the Hulu original film, Fresh. After briefly comparing himself to Stan, Nanjiani unwittingly revealed the anti-white agenda throughout Hollywood.

The Obi-Wan Kenobi actor stated, “[Sebastian Stan] does these big Marvel movies, and then he’ll play a psychopath. I was told that’s going to be hard because people don’t want to cast non-white people as bad guys.”

In fact, Wong claims that “if Welcome to Chippendales were not based on a true story, Nanjiani believes that the central role would have gone to a white actor.”

As Nanjiani notes, this anti-white agenda is an open secret in Hollywood. It’s part of the whole representation agenda that these massive companies have adopted and began propagandizing onto audiences.

Amazon Studios’ Inclusion Policy and Inclusion Playbook was touted by Head of Amazon Studios Jennifer Salke back in June 2021 when she stated, “With the establishment of our Inclusion Policy and Inclusion Playbook, Amazon Studios has committed itself to being a thought and action leader in the transformation of our industry.”

She added, “We know how much work there is to be done to improve representation both on camera and behind the scenes, and it starts at home, with us. With clear directives and a commitment to accountability, these guides provide a path toward a more equitable future, both on- and off-camera.”

This isn’t isolated to Amazon Studios. The Walt Disney Company has an entire initiative called Reimagine Tomorrow in which documents obtained by journalist Christopher F. Rufo and published in May 2021 included training on “systemic racism,” “white privilege,” “white fragility,” “white saviors,” “microaggressions,” and “antiracism.”

The Reimagine Tomorrow campaign would then be further exposed after The Walt Disney Company decided to antagonize the state of Florida by advocating against a bill that would prevent public schools from teaching kids about sexual orientation and gender identity between kindergarten and third grade.

It was revealed the initiative was pushing a not-so-secret agenda to push gay and queer content onto children. Current director for Disney’s The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder Latoya Raveneau stated during a Reimagine Tomorrow video conference, “In my little pocket of Proud Family Disney TVA, the showrunners were super welcoming. Meredith Roberts and our leadership over there has been so welcoming to my not-at-all-secret gay agenda.”

She added, “Maybe it was that way in the past, but I guess something must have happened in the last, they are turning it around, they’re going hard, and then like all that momentum that I felt, that sense of ‘I don’t have to be afraid to let’s have these two characters kiss in the background.’ I was just, wherever I could, just basically adding queerness. If you see anything queer in the show — no one would stop me, and no one was trying to stop me.”

While the focus of Reimagine Tomorrow during the the battle with the state of Florida was focused on sexual orientation and gender identity, former Disney CEO Bob Chapek noted the company’s goal was to reshape audiences minds and hearts via their content that includes this representation agenda.

In a company-wide email Chapek wrote, ” For nearly a century, our company’s stories have opened minds, inspired dreams, shown the world both as it is and how we wish it could be, and now more than ever before, represent the incredible diversity of our society. We are telling important stories, raising voices, and I believe, changing hearts and minds.”

Chapek then listed a number of content programming that the company has used in an attempt to reprogram people, “Encanto, Black Panther, Pose, Reservation Dogs, Coco, Soul, Modern Family, Shang-Chi, Summer of Soul, Love, Victor. These and all of our diverse stories are our corporate statements and they are more powerful than any tweet or lobbying effort.”

He then stated, “I firmly believe that our ability to tell such stories-and have them received with open eyes, ears, and hearts -would be diminished if our company were to become a political football in any debate.”

Powerful content that changes hearts and minds only springs from inclusive cultures, which not only attract and retain the best and most diverse talent, but also give those employees the freedom to bring forth ideas that reflect their lives and experiences. We must work together to ensure Disney always remains such a place,” Chapek declared.

Actor Seth Rogen isn’t even trying to push the propaganda through representation. He admitted back in 2020 he is “actively trying to make less things starring white people.”

When asked by Entertainment Weekly’s Leah Greenblatt about what his role on the topic of diversity in Hollywood should be, Rogen replied, “I mean personally, I think I am just actively trying to make less things starring white people.”

He went on to state, “And if I’m succeeding or I’m not, I’m very much looking to have a far more diverse group of writers and directors and actors that we generally work with, because that group is not incredibly diverse, you know?”

He then concluded, ““So that’s how I’ve been trying to deal with it, is just to actively take as they would say, anti-racist measures to assure that some work is doing done to acknowledge that Black people are very marginalized in American society.””
