I think that the lack of minorities in Hollywood should be changed. I think that we as African Americans should have more actors, actresses and directors with the same amount of pay as any other race.

African Americans should be more of a focal point in Hollywood. They are very underestimated in their talents and would reach greater heights if given the proper roles.

I believe Hollywood definitely needs more African Americans. Our movies, actors and actresses have been overlooked for too long. Not only that but Hollywood needs to focus on bringing younger talent into the mix because Denzel Washington and Will Smith are getting older and can only portray certain roles.

Many minorities think that they don’t really have a chance in Hollywood and just give up on their dream of becoming a star. I don’t believe that Hollywood is all to blame either. I just think that there is a lack of qualified minority talent to choose from.
