Novelist James Patterson says older whites experience "a different form of racism"
"It's even harder with older writers," Patterson complains. "You don't meet many 52-year-old white men."
James Patterson, a best-selling author with an estimated net worth of $ 800 million, shows how difficult it is for white men to find work in publishing and Hollywood.
An interesting novel says that white writers experienced a "different form of racism" in an interview with The Times published on Sunday, in which they lamented the misery of older white people.
"What is it?" Patterson thought. "Can you get a job? Yes. is it harder? Yes. It's even harder for older writers. You haven't met many 52-year-old white men. "
These remarks come after the magazine noted that the white author's early success was based in part on the character of a black detective, the fictional Alex Cross, in his crime series about a police and a forensic psychologist.
Morgan Freeman played the detective in two film adaptations, Kiss the Girls in 1997 and Along Came and Spider in 2001.
"I just wanted to make the number black," Patterson said. "I'm not going to try to write a serious saga about the Black family. It's different from detective because the plot is so important."
