    Maybe your Ancestors should have stayed in Africa , Oh thats right , if not for slavery none of your ancestors would have survived the slaighter and genocide other African Tribes were doung to your Ancestors Tribes , So when those tribes decided to sell your ancestors instead of continuing to slaughter them , that was A Gift of Life from God , for your ancestors to live and reproduce , without slavery none of you would exist ..... To get equal pay you need to work equally as hard , but you just want give me , give me , I am black ....

    Viola you’re GREAT but you’re not Meryl Streep yet. Yes, you’re getting paid less but so did she. It’s not fair, women should be paid as much as men and they don’t. But let’s be clear you’re not where Meryl is 👍👍👍

    Get more movie deals. Maybe a TV series job. Look for the work and bend yourself to get them better paying parts. Do the worrrrrrkkkk. Maybe change your attitude while you're at it.

    YOU ARE A PRODUCT! It's up to the PUBLIC! THE PUBLIC (DEMAND) DETERMINES YOUR SALARY! How come WILL SMITH and THE ROCK both were the best paid actors? Don't bring the RACE CARD AGAIN! It's up to the PUBLIC! NOT TO YOU!

    It's not too much to ask for work the same as me get paid the same amount as me and the fact that it isn't like that is WRONG

    Viola Davis is an black actress. And for those of that know. There are alot of actors and actresses out there. Some are white, Mexican, African, Asian so on and so forth. Do anyone understand that for the dawn of time. Woman especially woman of color have always been paid less than white people. So when a woman of color. Doesn't matter what color. When she says she had to hustle hard to get were she is.( Fyi others had to hustle less than others,some had a spoon in their mouth) My point is don't talk down to her. Anyone can be in her shoes from the beginning. Viola Davis's words matter. And she's not the only woman of color that had said this. Mexicans make less than blacks. Don't see you talking down about Mexicans. And color has alot to do with it

    Hispanic people are bilingual. The more you know the more your worth. You too can learn to speak another language even if your not in that culture. That’s what’s so great about America. You have the opportunity to better yourself. Things don’t come to those who don’t work for it.
