REPORT: #Hollywood film industry still run by a bunch of #racist #sexist jerks

Screenshot 2017-12-10 at 08.04.01Hollywood still has an inclusion problem according to the latest study from USC’s Annenberg Inclusion Initiative.

The group’s ever-expanding annual report, “Inequality in 1,100 Popular Films,” covers the top 100 movies each year from 2007 through 2017 – shows no significant statistical improvement in the representation of women, people of color, LBGT characters or characters with disability over the past decade.

We’re not surprised and apparently we’re not alone.

It was a dissonance the researchers were prepared for. “A lot of us were familiar with the most notable examples of whitewashing,” says study co-author Marc Choueit.
