Well, Yaphet was not only plagued vy back door racism, hence why he never shot to A level celebrity stardom, even though he was an amazing actor; he
also was a staunch believer that racism wasn't an issue for black people and other ethnicities in Hollywood.
He was, at the same time, a victim of racism that he didn't even believe in, AND a victim of the Hollywood social scene that made racism a bougie
cause du jour and straight up tried to silence his opinion.
I don't know the full story, and I never will, but after he participated in a racism centered episode of "TV Nation" (Michael Moore) he was done in
Hollywood. He finished Homicide, and the homicide movie, and then hightailed it to Canada.
I'm hoping Michael Moore might speak out about what happened now that Kotto has passed.
