“A wave of critical and word-of-mouth praise has helped Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” become the first stealth hit of 2017. But Samuel L. Jackson has turned up the heat on a long-simmering debate by pointing out what he thinks is a key oversight: that a film about the American black experience stars an actor that doesn’t have any first-hand knowledge of the American black experience. The star of “Get Out” is British.

During an interview with New York radio station Hot 97.1 earlier this week, Jackson criticized the casting of actor Daniel Kaluuya, who plays an African American photographer in the horror movie, mixed with biting social commentary.”*
