#Racist #Hollywood to #AntonioVillaraigosa: #WhitesOnly

As mayor of Los Angeles, Antonio Villaraigosa built relationships in Hollywood: He sought the counsel of studio heads, fought for state tax credits to keep film and television production in the city and mingled with celebrities on the red carpet at glitzy film premieres and HBO parties.

In return, members of the entertainment industry backed his political ambitions — a rare show of support at the time from Hollywood for a local politician.

But as Villaraigosa runs for governor — potentially the final chapter of his political career — Hollywood is on board with Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom.

Villaraigosa’s chief rival, has raised nearly twice as much from donors tied to entertainment and the arts.

Why? Well basically because Newsom is white…and that’s the way the racists who run Hollywood like it.
