Washington, D.C.'s infamous former mayor Marion Barry is not happy with the writers HBO hired to script an upcoming biopic on him. His main beef is that Tom Sherwood, a local reporter, and crime novelist George Pelecanosto are white. “Some white people really do think they should tell the history of black experiences. Sad paternalists. We can speak for ourselves,” Barry wrote in one of a series of tweets to express his dissatisfaction.
