Celebrities including Julianne Moore, Bryce Dallas Howard, Sarah Paulson, Kristen Bell, Aaron Paul, Justin Theroux and Stanley Tucci have a new video out to fight racism, saying “unless white America acknowledges its privilege, systematic racism will persist.” And, of course, there’s a hashtag — #ITakeResponsibility — so you know they’re serious:

You know, these celebrities should just refuse to work on films unless there’s say a Black director and Black lead actors. But will they?
Today, #ITakeResponsibility for my role in eradicating racism in America. Unless white America acknowledges its privilege, systemic racism will persist. Act Now. What will you commit to? https://t.co/OjSR23y7lp. @NAACP @itakeresponsibility #itakeresponsibility #blacklivesmatter pic.twitter.com/NYH2WQyiKP

We know the answer to that:
Will you all commit to giving up your future roles to actors of color?

And why are they just doing this now? From Twitchy favorite Nick Searcy:
How many people of color have you personally assisted, by the way? Oh, and Merry Christmas from my family to yours! pic.twitter.com/nqDwih9gr3

Stopped watching after @KristenBell.
You’re doing Black voice in 2020, so if you’re truly #ITakeResponsibility shouldn’t you step back from the role and let a Black woman take your place?!?!
