You can cure ignorance with education. Unfortunately there is no cure for willful ignorance. These "celebrities" see only what they wish to see. Nothing can change them because they live in bubbles isolated from reality.

Spot on, annonymous.

Talented people of the entertainment industry should stick to just that: Entertainment.
But, no. Somehow, someway they begin to believe they possess deep, enlightening, political thoughts and ideas. And they must share said thoughts and ideas with the world. And what happens after they do?

The make fools of themselves.

They are the useful idiots, and, Historically, those that would not dance and sing to the propaganda, as in Germany, China and North Korea are put away quickly.
They find it exciting to be iconoclasts, pushing the envelope, but I agree that they should stick to their performing arts. They, unlike the N. Korean dancers, are paid by Capitalists who just want to be diverted, amused and entertained. Better to leave politics and economic theory to people like Dr. Sowell or Star Parker.

They get intoxicated with what they find that their song and dance can do. Spew any old ignorance to their raving audiences and said audiences just go wow. Not all entertainers are that empty minded, but in general a skill at entertaining does not carry any correlation with a propensity to deep, genuine thought about social matters.
“The Negro is indolent and spends his money on frivolities and drink, the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent…The Negro has maintained his racial purity by his well known habit of avoiding baths.”

Che Guevara wrote these lines in his famous “Motorcycle Diaries.” But you will search Robert Redford’s famous movie based on the book in utter vain for their mention. Redford, this muscular champion of “artistic freedom,” by the way, meekly acquiesced in screening The Motorcycle Diaries for Che's widow (who heads Cuba's Che Guevara Studies Center) and Fidel Castro for their approval before release.

"N**ger!" taunted...
