Diversity in Hollywood Still Lacking

2014 Hollywood Diversity Report Isn't Particularly Promising

2014 Hollywood Diversity report unsurprisingly shows that Hollywood lacks diversity.

UCLA's Ralph Bunche Center for African American Studies has released its 2014 Hollywood Diversity Report — predictably, for women and minorities, the results are dismal. And when you break down the minority portion by race, the figures are even more depressing.

The report analyzes 172 films that came out in 2011, as well as 1061 television shows that aired between 2011 and 2012 for the race and gender breakdowns of Lead Talent, Overall Cast, Show Creators, Writers, and Directors. Minorities and women were significantly underrepresented in each category. For example, in terms of Lead Talent, minorities in film are underrepresented by a factor of 3 to 1 while women are underrepresented by a factor of 2 to 1. For Broadcast comedies and dramas, that number jumps to 7 to 1 for minorities.
