There’ll be some gnashing of teeth and wailing in tinsletown now
Posted by: McQ on Monday, February 20, 2006

Per the Starpulse News blog, Spike Lee has blown the cover off of Hollywood during an interview in Complex magazine:
Spike Lee has attacked the Hollywood studios for not including African-Americans as executives. The director is appalled the major studios only recruit white men and women for executive positions.

He tells style magazine Complex, "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."

He added, "They'll make a movie with Denzel (Washington) and Jamie (Foxx) and Eddie (Murphy) but only because they can make money off them. They (studios) might think there's diversity because four white women run studios."
Apparently Spike believes that all that diversity and equal opportunity talk of which the glitteratti are so fond doesn't extend to their own industry. No Sarrandon, Fonda or Streisand picketing a major studio. No Michael Moore wandering into studio boardrooms and exposing the hypocricy. And where, by the way, is Jesse Jackson when you need him?

Someone wants a film "green-lighted" or someone’s creative Muse has dried up and now they are angling for a cushy mangement position within the film industry.....Of course I am noted as a cynic.

Why does it come as a shock to him that powerful liberals don’t let minorities in the executive positions? They run the Democrat party the exact same way...

Hollywood liberals = racists?

I’m shocked...shocked I tell you!

Ok, not really. I always suspected their support for affirmative action programs stemmed from their beliefs that blacks were inferior and incapable of succeeding without a shot of government help. They looked at successful blacks as sell-outs, not intelligent, nor hard-working, nor any of the things which usually lead to success in life.

I have no use for the country club liberals currently populating Hollywood.
