Default Chris Rock Calls Out Hollywood: Why Is ‘Liberal’ Town Full Of Racists?

Comment: It's something I have had an issue with Hollywood. When Mexicans are portrayed in Hollywood mostly doing criminal activity or the help.

But rather than simply focus on discrimination against African Americans, Chris Rock also touched on the racism experienced by Mexican Americans and other Latinos.

“[F]orget whether Hollywood is black enough. A better question is: Is Hollywood Mexican enough?”

“You’re in L.A, you’ve got to try not to hire Mexicans. It’s the most liberal town in the world, and there’s a part of it that’s kind of racist… [It’s just accepted] that there’s a slave state in L.A.”

“There’s this [expectation] that Mexicans are going to take care of white people in L.A. that doesn’t exist anywhere else.”

According to Chris Rock, Latino visibility in Hollywood, particularly in roles and positions behind the cameras, is almost non-existent.

“You’re telling me no Mexicans are qualified to do anything at a studio?” said Rock. “Really? Nothing but mop up? What are the odds that that’s true?”

Liberals are worst than Conservatives when it comes to racism. At least the latter are more blunt about it but liberals......what a bunch of idiots
