African American People in Movies About Future

Sometimes you just happen to notice when there absolutely no African American people in a movie. "Blade Runner" is one of those movies. It's not racist to notice because African American people notice that kind of thing too, if I'm thinking the same way an African American person is then that makes us on the same level and that's the opposite of racism! What makes it startling is that "Blade Runner" is set in the future. What happened to African American people from now to then?

I emailed director Ridley Scott and asked for his thoughts. So far I haven't received a reply. I don't think there were any African American people in the "Alien" movies either come to think of it, though I could be wrong, maybe there was ONE. For some reason depictions of the future aren't kind to African American people. For instance, "The Jetsons". Is it that hard to just DRAW someone with at least a tan? What the hell is wrong with these people?
