Piece of Peace is a new TMZ franchise that introduces surprisingly talented people of color who have struggled to make their place in the entertainment industry.

Antonio Kennedy YouTube is a screenwriter for a web series who wants to write for major streaming networks … but he says being black makes it difficult to get a job in Hollywood.
Antonio’s writing for the show “The Chronicles The F PB and Jay”, but as he tells TMZ Lauren Lorosa … He has white writers call his appearance – tattoos, dark skin and muscles – can scare hire people.
It’s very worrying … Antonio says he was told to stop working early in his Hollywood career, and he has to make sure to break the ice whenever he is interviewed to write positions on a TV show and the rest of the people in it. Have to put. Comfortable room.

Antonio warns black people not to focus on knocking on doors in Los Angeles … Instead, he says it is more important to be true to yourself, and success will follow. You just have to be more discriminating with the help you render toward other people.
