Context:
British gangster 'Brick Top' (Alan Ford) isn't happy after 'Turkish' (Jason Statham) let's him know of his failure to get Mickey O'Neil (Brad Pitt) to fight in a fixed boxing match.

It is clear that representing this character in a culturally accurate way holds significance for people, and that to neglect this responsibility would continue a worrying tendency to obscure ethnic minority stories and voices in the Arts. I feel it is important to honour and respect that.

Context:
Skrein responded to backlash against his casting in the Hellboy franchise reboot by relinquishing the role he had been cast in. The 34-year-old British actor has earlier tweeted that he would be playing Major Ben Daimio, a character that was Asian American in Mike Mignola’s “Hellboy” comics. The news was met with complaints that Hollywood was once again “whitewashing” an Asian character.

You show me anybody that gives a damn about anybody else and I'll show you a damn fool, who goes through life beggin' instead of grabbin.' Do you think anybody in this town is any different?

It all resolves around the big "G" baby... the big Green. Everybody, everywhere is scratchin' for what they can get. I'm just scratchin' a little harder.
