Only under Capitalism,

We hear a lot about "racism" and how it holds certain people back. Racism can't hold anyone back in a Capitalist economy. In the 1960's many black actors faced racism on the entertainment market. Black actor Duane Jones famous for his lead role in "The Night of the Living Dead" beat the odds however. Suprisingly his role in the movie was originally going to be given to a white male truck driver. But when Duane Jones auditioned for the role, his work ethic proved to be better than any of the actors George Romero could find for the part. Effort pays off under Capitalism....even when the odds are against you!!
