"A War Department study in 1925 expressly stated that Negroes didn't have the intelligence, or the character, or the leadership to be in combat units, and particularly, they didn't have the ability to be Air Force pilots."
George Lucas has said that it took him nearly 20 years to get his latest film made because it is an all black movie.
Director George Lucas, speaking on The Daily Show, said that he had to self-fund the film, Red Tails, which follows the true story of a group of African American pilots who fought in World War 11.
According to Mr Lucas, he invested $68 million of his own money into the movie because film studios would not back it because there were no major white roles in it. Lucas's comments echo those of Spike Lee, who criticized the lack of black faces in Hollywood war movies in 2008.
In Red Tails, the phrase and picture of Black Jesus below becomes a symbol of strength and determination for one pilot in particular.
Black Jesus As Seen In Red Tail
Just as the Tuskegee pilots proved that the war department statement above, stating the inferiority of Black men is a lie, the creators of this movie also felt it was important to include a true image of Jesus Christ as a man of color.

Thanks you George Lucas for his courage to not let racism continue to get in the way of the truth about the Tuskegee Airman and Jesus Christ.
“Tuskegee Airmen” refers to all who were involved in the so called “Tuskegee Experiment”, the Army Corps program to train African Americans to fly and maintain combat aircrafts.
