Hollywood Hypocrisy: Study Finds Black-Led Projects ‘Underfunded and Undervalued’

When it comes to diversity, inclusion and representation, Hollywood is far from where it needs to be.




Hollywood liberal elites want you to know that they are so supportive of Black Lives and equality they are willing to spend their own money bailing Black Lives Matter protestors out of jail. They aren’t, however, so concerned with equality when it comes to jobs in their own backyard.

Deadline reports, when it comes to diversity, inclusion and representation, Hollywood is far from where it needs to be, but we are seeing progress.” However, Deadline adds “there are many blind spots that have been overlooked” and if Hollywood doesn’t fix them, “the industry will have more problems than it can repair – one of the being the undervaluing of Black-led projects.”

In the C-suite leadership roles, Black professionals have extremely low representation. A recent study conducted by McKinsey & Company found that “87% of TV executives and 92% of film executives are white.” The film industry “remains disproportionately white, ranking last among industries and behind sectors such as energy and finance.”

The self-proclaimed liberally progressive TV and film industry are not so inclusive after all. If you think “certainly the executives hire minorities to practice what they preach,” think again. “Agents and executive staff at the industry’s top three talent agencies were about 90% white – and the partners at these agencies were 97% white.”

The research conducted found “Black-led projects have been consistently underfunded and undervalued” despite “evidence that is clear as day that they outperform other properties when it comes to a return on their investment.”

Data was based on more than 2,000 films and interviews with “dozens of industry professionals, including writers, directors, producers, agents, actors, and executives.” Revenues in the industry are nearly $150 billion per year. But, “Hollywood has the potential to gain an additional $10 billion in annual revenues…by addressing the racial inequities.”

“Black talent is underrepresented across the industry particularly in off-screen roles such as producer, director and writer” explains Deadline. “Looking at positions of creative control, the research shows that less than 6% of Hollywood films’ writers, directors, and producers are Black.”

    Color only becomes an issue if you make it one, and the Left has chosen to politicize this, also. Disparity begins at home. When you have single parent homes, kids being left on their own, or rely on relatives to raise your kids, that’s where our society goes wrong. Don’t rely on schools to raise your kids. You brought them into this world and you are responsible for that life being here. Your responsibility doesn’t stop once that child is ejected from your body- it’s just beginning for the rest of the kid’s life. It’s a matter of choice and we need to all make good choices and follow God’s Word.

    Pretty obvious its about money. Hollywood is nothing but a bastion of superficial blowhards. Everyone recognizes that they are the self-appointed “keepers” of socialism. I wonder what will happen to them if socialism becomes the norm and they are not exempt from socialist rule. Probably hear a lot of crying and screaming.

    I’m not surprised at all that leftist Hollywood in truth undervalues Blacks. The left uses Blacks to vote for them. That is their only value as far as leftists are concerned. The Democrat leftists keep the Blacks voting for them by providing many free incentives. They also keep the Blacks from thinking for themselves and being successful on their own terms.The Blacks are kept suppressed by the left keeping them held down by poor education and few opportunities for lasting improvements in their neighborhoods snd in society in general. It is all done on purpose to keep a large part of their voting base. The left want the US overrun with illegal aliens for the same reason. The illegals will vote for them once the leftists provide them with free shelter, healthcare, Social Security etc. it’s a small price for leftists to pay to have their voter base. They will keep them on the government dole forever for this reason. They want their voters to be dependent on them. All is fine as long as the Blacks and Illegals stay in their place.This is what leftists do. They use people. They care about no one and nothing except their own power.

Chris Cuomo Forced Out Of SiriusXM After CNN Firing – Report



Chris Cuomo

On Monday, ex-CNN host Chris Cuomo announced that he had resigned from his SiriusXM radio show just days after being fired from CNN over his deep involvement with the handling of sexual assault allegations against his brother ex-Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo.

“The way my time ended at CNN is hard,” he said in a statement. “While I have a thick skin, I also have a family, for whom the past week has been extraordinarily difficult. So, right now, I have to take a step back and focus on what comes next. That means I will no longer be doing my SiriusXM radio show. I am extremely grateful for the support I have received from SiriusXM throughout my time there. I also want to express my sincere appreciation for my loyal listeners. I will miss our conversations a great deal – but I look forward to being back in touch with you all in the future.”


“Following Chris Cuomo’s statement that he is leaving his SiriusXM show, Let’s Get After It will no longer air. We thank Chris for his work at SiriusXM,” a SiriusXM spokesperson said in a statement.

According to the New York Post, a source said that Cuomo was “forced out” of Sirius after “a former female colleague at ABC News accused him of sexual misconduct.”

“Cuomo ‘really wanted’ to stay on Sirius but was told he needed to leave,” the New York Post reported, adding, “A source familiar with the matter said of Cuomo, ‘He was asked to resign, which he did.’”

CNN also reportedly learned of a new accusation of sexual misconduct against Chris Cuomo, unrelated to his brother, that led CNN to take “immediate action.”
The New York Times
reported, “On Wednesday, Debra S. Katz, a prominent employment lawyer, informed CNN of a client with an allegation of sexual misconduct against Chris Cuomo. Ms. Katz said in a statement on Saturday that the allegation against the anchor, which was made by a former junior colleague at another network, was ‘unrelated to the Gov. Andrew Cuomo matter.’”

When asked about the new allegation, a CNN spokeswoman said in a statement on Saturday night, “Based on the report we received regarding Chris’s conduct with his brother’s defense, we had cause to terminate. When new allegations came to us this week, we took them seriously, and saw no reason to delay taking immediate action.”

Twitter Releases Redesigned Orange and Red ‘Misinformation’ Labels

Twitter is doubling down on letting you know when they think your internet behavior is uncouth




Twitter is doubling down on letting you know when they think your internet behavior is uncouth. Reportedly the company has been testing new labels since July, and “are an update from those Twitter used for election misinformation before and after the 2020 presidential contest” reports the Associated Press.

The new designs include added orange and red labels to “stand out” more than the old blue version, which blended with Twitter’s blue color scheme. However, the company was also cautious, as “its tests showed that if a label is too eye-catching, it leads to more people to retweet and reply to the original tweet.”

The AP writes those labels used in the presidential election “drew criticism for not doing enough to keep people from spreading obvious falsehoods.” Therefore the redesign will launch on Tuesday in hopes of being “easier to notice.”

The AP states experts say such labels are helpful to users and allow the big tech social media giants to “sidestep the more difficult work of content moderation – that is, deciding whether or not to remove posts, photos and videos that spread conspiracies and falsehoods.”

In its testing phase, Twitter said the redesigned labels showed a 17% increase in “click-through-rate” meaning more people would click on the labels to read the information debunking false or misleading tweets. “Misleading tweets that got the redesigned label – with an orange icon and the words ‘stay informed’ were also less likely to be retweeted or liked than those with the original labels.”

Twitter labels three types of misinformation: “manipulated media,” such as videos and audio believed to have been deceptively altered in ways that could cause real-world harm; election and voting-related misinformation and false or misleading tweets related to COVID-19.

The AP adds “tweets with more serious misinformation – for instance, a tweet claiming that vaccines cause autism – will get a stronger label, with the world ‘misleading’ and a red exclamation point. It won’t be possible to reply to, like or retweet these messages.”
