    Jackson makes plea to Hollywood

    Civil rights leader wants more minorities in showbiz




    Just in time for the Academy Awards, Jesse Jackson's renewing a push for greater inclusion of minorities in showbiz.

    The civil rights leader asserts that the timing's right to raise the issue, at a time when there's been widespread recognition received by such actors as Forest Whitaker, Eddie Murphy and Jennifer Hudson - all front-runners for Oscars.
    "While I feel joy for those outstanding performances, my concern is that people will take these as a substitute for progress," Jackson said in an interview Wednesday with Daily Variety. "We want to keep the light on unfinished business."
    Jackson - who protested the 1996 Academy Awards due to the lack of African-American nominees - said that membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences needs to be expanded to include more African-Americans than the current 110 of 5,830. (OK, so 20% representation for a population demographic of 12% is not sufficient?)
    "It's really an issue of infrastructure," Jackson added. "The voting doesn't at all reflect the current reality of the population." (again; 12%)
    Jackson's in Los Angeles this week to lay the groundwork for an April conference, organized by Rainbow Push Entertainment Project and focusing on the issues of parity and equity.
    No date's been set yet but the confab would be designed to bring together top execs and experts to seek solutions in several areas of concern:
    • Hosts on many cable networks are nearly all Caucasian, or as Jackson puts it "All day, all night, all white."
    • Minorities have limited access to jobs at major talent agencies.
    • Casting of minority actors remains a problem. Jackson noted, pointing to a UCLA study by Russell Robinson, released in December and showing that found 69 percent of Hollywood roles were reserved for white actors. (Wow, so now 31%; almost triple representation, is not enough either)

    The world will end soon, I think I agree with gjk5.

    *edit*

    I just talked to my wife about this and she agrees too. BTW, she's black.

    the key word to the entire article is when JJ says "progress". His definition of progress is: moving in a direction that ends with white people being treated like black people were in the 50s/60s... and black people in control of everything, even if they didn't earn it.

    :D the end is indeed near.:D


    And for the record, I couldn't care less if black actors had 50% of the roles, as long as they didn't get them because of a demand this asshat made. He and Sharpton should have been arrested for hate crimes and inciting riots long ago.

    I agree, Sharpton and Jackson do more to racially divide than they do to blur the color lines. Stupidity and ignorance know no colors.
    What ever happened to being chosen based on your abilities instead of the color of your skin? That's right boys and girls, the Democratic party in the latter 20th century.

    where are the sharp shooters when you need them?jackson and sharpton need to go away. and all the losers that support them.the city of Detroit is a prime example of playing the race card. Mayor Young was if office for years and did nothing for the city or its people. but he was voted in everytime cuz he was black.then Mayor Archer came in and started getting things going for Detroit.but he was voted out cuz he was TOO WHITE for a black guy.now Mayor Kilpatrick is in again and seems to be doing ok.but he is considered a thug.he is young enough to get things going for the right reason.to make money.i ****in HATE people that make everything about race.thats why it never dies, keep filling peoples heads with bad images.i have spent over twenty years working in the ghetto and have made good friends there.i'm with you i HATE that POS!!!!

    The guy's a douche, but I have to hammer on you for your math, Dave:


    Actually, 110 of 5830 is closer to 2%.


    Not like I give a rat's ass, anyways. But I couldn't resist the opportunity to correct someone else's math- it doesn't happen too often when you're a ditchdigger..... :rotfl:

    The world will be safe. I will no longer agree with gjk5 ever again, at least till I double check his numbers.
