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.”
