It's sad to see Lucas playing the same race card excuse that has been so overused by politicians and other public figures. The fact is that film studios weren't interested in making "Red Tails" because of the subject matter, not because of the race of the characters in the story.
If you look at the box office history for military aviation films, you'll see that the majority of them have tanked. "Top Gun" was of course a huge unique exception.
