Zoe Saldana slams Hollywood racism

Avatar actress Zoe Saldana has revealed how she has experienced racism her entire life, even as an actress in Hollywood. Zoe admitted that she has often auditioned for a movie role and performed well, but then been turned down because of her race.

Saldana explained, "I've witnessed racism all my life. And of course there's racism and discrimination in Hollywood. You go for a part and they say, 'Oh, we really liked her, she's amazing, but we wanted to go with something more traditional'. As if I'm not a traditional American!”
 
She then added, "I feel sorry for people like that. They need to educate themselves. Mostly you move on and say, 'Well, I wasn't meant to work with you or be around someone like you'. Other times you might say, 'You're ignorant, you're a racist. That's it. I'm out of here!'"
 
Zoe concluded by claiming that America as a nation is experiencing racism at the moment, she said, "It's trendy to hate Americans right now. Deep down, some people are enjoying the fact that the most powerful nation on Earth is struggling a little - and then they deny that's racist! And that frightens me."
 
Zoe Saldana can next be seen on the big screen when she appears in the movie Colombiana, which is already out in the US and is set to be released in the UK on September 9. Zoe is also expected to reprise her role as Nyota Uhura in Star Trek 2, when the script is finally complete.
