Eric Rohmer's Hidden Racist Past - which most likely lead to him not using diverse casts for his movies

Apparently Eric Rohmer - a celebrated filmmaker in the art house film world - and his racist beliefs have been an open secret for decades.  I only heard about it last night.  See images and links below.

Rohmer thought that only Europeans should make movies.  And he did not like multi-ethnic casting in movies.  Avoided casting non-white actors in his movies for decades - thus making his movies racist.

There are plenty of other, non-racist, French and other filmmakers we can watch. Avoid Eric Rohmer movies - racism is a dangerous belief system - has lead to the death of millions of people in the past.
