As Hollywood shrinks, the industry’s workforce is becoming an increasingly “exclusive club” with a surge in “knowledge-intensive,” so-called “white collar” positions. But it’s also becoming more racially diverse, a recent study shows. 

Film and TV jobs now make up a smaller share of Los Angeles entertainment industry employment than they have in 30 years. Nevertheless, the percentage of college-educated workers has shot up to 68% in 2022, from 46% in 2000. And in 2022, for the first time the majority of entertainment workers were nonwhite, according to the most recent Otis College Report on the Creative Economy.

According to the study, the share of creative workers who are white dropped from 71% in 2013 to 60% in 2022, while the share of black creative workers grew from 5% to 9%.

    that’s a white wash report of a racist industry. The same companies that kept the status quo of white america from the 40s to the 2000s are the same ones of today so you can’t erase their history or replace it with 5 years of one political party paid minstrels who don’t even represent one percent of the people. The Dems and biden labeled minorities super predators in the 90s and they think this pr move will erase the millions incacerated by racist white super predators from washington which were the democrats , biden and incarcerator in general Kamala harris who oversaw the racial incarceration of minorities for her white masters in washington. the dems in washington are the super predators and are racist against jews, latinos , blacks and all minorities and hollywood is their white propaganda vehicle trying to say things have changed while every black ghetto is the same in the democratic run cities so nothing has changed.
