Spike Lee says that Hollywood is a white man’s business, because African-Americans aren’t included as executives:

“You go to any studio, the (only) black guy you are going to see is the guy at the gate. In Hollywood, there is not one African-American who is an executive that has gatekeeper position that could greenlight a picture.”

You mean, the outwardly inclusive, liberal Hollywood do-gooder activists who champion every minority cause up until it may conflict with their business interests aren’t practicing what they preach?

I’d have to disagree with Spike. I’ve seen photos of many Hollywood studio executives. There are both middle aged and really old white people.

There are far more blacks with high positions in, for example– the Bush administration– than in the major Hollywood studios. But which one gets the benefit of the doubt when it comes to being a “friend of minorities”, “caring about civil rights” etc.? Which one does Kanye West say doesn’t like black people?

Go figure.
