Hollywood isn’t the most diverse corner of entertainment and this has been proven time and time again. Projects like “every single work spoken of color” which make up seconds of a movie, or a recent study which proved that out of 2014’s top 100 films, an astonishing 73.1% of the characters were white while 4.9% were Hispanic, 12.5% were black, 5.3% were Asian, and 4.2% were labeled other.
Buzzfeed did something out of the ordinary, recreating classics like The Breakfast Club, Mean Girls and Titanic amongst a few more with people of color. In the video viewers can learn of an scary statistic that while people of color make up 40 percent of the United States population, people of color only make up 16.7 percent of Hollywood roles.
A movie like “Straight Outta Compton” is an indicator of how people long for diversity. Check out the video below and let us know what you think.
