Sony Hack Reveals Hollywood's Acceptance Of White Privilege : Code Switch : Npr









The Rev. Al Sharpton (left) and Marc Morial, president of the National Urban League, speak to reporters after they met with Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal on Dec. 18.

But because they couldn't stretch their rules to consider the one film featuring black people that has serious awards-season buzz, they missed out on including Golden Globe nominee David Oyelowo, star of Selma, in their actor panel. Patricia Arquette (clockwise from left), Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Amy Adams, Felicity Jones, Julianne Moore and Hilary Swank on the Nov. 28 cover of The Hollywood Reporter. The Hollywood Reporter hide caption itoggle caption The Hollywood Reporter This seems a prime example of how even institutions that take http://earlerujj.iloveblog.com/2014/12/04/kardashian-feud-instagram-pictures-suggest-kardashian-thanksgiving-was-faked/ a close look at Hollywood's issues with race can also reinforce those problems by sticking with old habits and established practices. Pascal has pushed back against those who suggest the leaked emails should cost her the chairman's job at Sony, saying http://www.dailystrength.org/people/3007126/journal/12068669 the messages "are not an accurate reflection of who I am." I believe her. But I also believe these messages are an accurate reflection of Hollywood's attitudes about diversity, where assumptions are made without proof and even the president can find himself at the butt end of a racist joke between the most powerful people in town. The best way big shots like Pascal and Rudin can prove they aren't the people depicted in these emails is to challenge the status quo and http://sunnisugib.blogspace.fr insist on results. Break down any rule or practice that hinders bringing more diversity to executive suites, producing and directing ranks, and casting offices.

All of them were white, despite powerful performances in films mentioned above, like Selma and Beyond the Lights, Belle, Black or White, Dear White People and even Annie. When I asked Hollywood Reporter editor Janice Min about this, she said the films this year with nonwhite stars either weren't considered serious Oscar contenders or, like Selma, weren't available for screening when the magazine made its round-table choices. Last year, the magazine had a similar round table including three nonwhite actresses. But because they couldn't stretch their rules to consider see page the one film featuring black people that has serious awards-season buzz, they missed out on including Golden Globe nominee David Oyelowo, star of Selma, in their actor panel.
