Is Hollywood too distracted by lecturing the rest of the country about diversity to insist upon it in their own ranks?

Singled out specifically were certain writing staffs:

Ironically, these same groups of writers are occasionally tasked with coming up with funny ways to mock the Right for a perceived lack of diversity.

    Hell I got attacked for pointing out the obvious.

      Glad you didn’t point out that there are only two black employees in the WhiteHouse.
      Obama, and Jarett.
      Actually, someone will correct me if I am wrong, isn’t Jarett the only female staff member?

    • IMPEACH_BOBO

      I don’t hear this RAClAL OUTRAGE BS of diversity from the minorities over the hispanic awards coming up soon or how about BET tv award shows & an all bIack ONLY actors awards show, thats RAClST NO because of no diversity, only minorities !!!!!!! Until there is one awards show for all actors & not split up into different racial groups, this will be the way it will stay !!! I think minorities forget that whites still make up 65% of the U.S. population, of course these award shows are going to be one sided, whites are the majority, GET OVER IT !!!!!!!!

      You minorities can’t scream RAClSM on one hand while on the other hand you are producing shows like BET tv award shows & the Hispanic awards shows, you bunch of RAClST HYPOCRITES !!!! When you are the minority you should just be glad you win once in a blue moon, since bIacks only make up 13% of the U.S. population & hispanics only make up 16% of the population, you can think of it as quotas on the awards !!! I don’t see one white person on those award show catering to minorities, so DON’T B**CH about ours !!!! You minorities are just lucky we let you on our award shows at all, especially when you consider what you minorities are doing on BET tv & the Hispanic award shows, which in my book is RAClSM, PLAIN & SIMPLE !!!!!

      • dreamon1978

        People of Color would not need those awards if there were not systematically shut out of mainstream awards programs!

    Blacks and Hispanics are so yesterday. It’s Gay and Lesbian Diversity du Jour.

        Mmmm, cats.

        I think transgenders are next.

          NO! My cat deserves equal rights, too! I promise she’ll always vote democrat *crosses fingers*

        • Ryan Johnson

          Well, considering men who have not even had the operation can win homecoming queen now…

          How about Transgender Cats that cant get IDs to vote!

  • Brad Donald

    This is what the left is. Nothing but racism and sexism on the mind at all times.

    They only way they have a point is if lots of minorities and women applied for those jobs and did not get them. And they had the same qualifications and talent.

    Unless that went on they are just showcasing their racism and sexist thought patterns.

    • DaMello

      I say lets force them to live by their rules. Must meet all racial and sexual quotas for all award shows! Affirmative Action in action.

      • TexSizzle

        Affirmative Action for sports teams too. If Whites are 65% of the population, they should be 65% of baseball, basketball, and football players also. And more blacks in golf and hockey. /sarc

  • jmotivator

    I get the feeling that if you ever got into a liberal’s head it would be like looking through the eyes of Robocop, except little cross-hairs would be popping up on all potential sources of victimhood.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      True, but you would implode from the vacuum in there.

      • DaMello

        Ah damn…! There’s always a catch!

  • syvyn11

    Okay, I’ve got questions. First should a tv show hire a writer that sucks, but checks a box for ‘racial diversity’? Follow up, if that writer did suck, and ratings drop out, will producers realize their mistake and fire that person or will they be scared firing him/her would raise the ire of the morally superior left?

  • Keith

    Maybe they pick writers with a similar sense of humor with no quota system in place? I must have missed Damon Wayans tweet about more whites in the NBA.

    • dreamon1978

      Sports is based on observable skill. It is much easier to discriminate in the arts.

  • Clayton B

    . . . you never hear about Whitey screaming ‘racist’ when BET holds its award show . . .

    • dreamon1978

      Minorities would not have to have their own awards shows if there were inclusion. These shows were born out of necessity.

      • http://yourdaddy.net/ NotaLemming

        This country managed to elect a Black President. Are you telling me he got elected by Affirmative Action?

  • des111168

    And the Hierarchy of Liberal Rank once again comes to the fore.

  • I Hate Hollywood

    So is it racist that the majority of Writers in Hollywood are Jewish?

  • Liberty

    Why should it matter?

  • Adam Steiger

    Well, now that the shoe’s on the other foot…

    I wonder what their reaction will be? Will they be evenhanded towards themselves by applying the same standards they use against the right?

    Or will they hand out one of these, instead?

  • Scott Carroll

    Love watching parasites eat their own. However, I don’t understand the yearning to have the writing staff look like the casting call for New Jack City. It’s not like hiring black or female writers would bring a fresh new perspective to the show. All of the current writers are left wing and any new hires, irrespective of color or gender, would be left wing as well.

    So, presumably, they’re just ringing the diversity dinner bell for diversity’s sake. Which actually encompasses left wing thought quite succinctly, style over substance.

  • Ntr

    Celebratory circle-jerk of the Hollywood white liberals. The (racist) white Hollywood liberals only support minority actors and actresses from a distance.

  • Ntr

    Hollywood, as an entity, just needs to be diminished and go away.

  • bringbackericthered

    Fred Armisen is of mixed race. Does that not count now?

  • John Alvarado

    Black, White, Women, Latino or Asian Gay or Straight. Hollywood will only hire liberals who will kiss up and support their stupid causes.

  • CasualMeyhem

    They are eating each other again? Less work for me I suppose.

  • http://twitter.com/archaicsteam Archaic

    Funny how the shows being named as lacking diversity are *liberal*.

  • therealguyfaux

    One of the few funny bits from the generally horrible SNL of the 1980’s was a sketch of the Bizarro World, in which they urged: “Network execs, go out, find perfect people to write for young urban black characters– suburban middle-aged Jewish writers! Pay them too much money!”

  • sanchez

    Take it to court to FORCE people of color on others.

  • Steve Rizzle

    and on the BET awards you see how many whites? Double standards….

  • URGR82

    I don’t think there is an illegal immigrant either

  • URGR82

    I don’t think there is a guy with a pickup truck and a southern twang to his voice either….though I do see that they play a lot of bad guys on tv

    • Zach Smith

      Where have all the black criminal roles gone? Al Sharpton needs to be on this.

    Whhhhat happened to the white Hispanic getting an award

    Whatever. Take it up with your Democratic Party and it’s leftist minions.

  • The Jackal

    How many whites get awards on the BET awards show. Now there’s Diversity for you. Fucking Hypocrites!

  • Magnifico

    Oh yeah!! Well, there aren’t enough white sprinters. Take that!!

  • TYPE O NEGATIVE

    So now we want every staff to be the Village People?

  • stuckinIL4now

    There’s another lack of diversity: TV has so so few intelligent, entertaining or truly funny programs and too much dumb.

  • notenoughtime

    The entertainment business operates just like the Revs. Al and Jesse, they show up to stir the pot, but then they retreat back to their compounds and do not really care about the masses. My advice to anyone with some intelligence and pride, there is plenty of jobs that make a difference. Hollywood ain’t it!

  • Chevypowered

    I find it hilarious that the biggest group who complains about the male and whiteness of the Conservatives/Tea Party and the GOP can only muster up a handful of Blacks and women producing shows that complain about the lack of diversity of Conservatives/Tea party and the GOP. Must screen capture for posterity sake!

  • marion vega

    when will i win a MOBO award then. (Music Of Black Origin- so you don’t even need to BE black.

  • tops116

    This is more entertaining than the Emmys or the crappy shows that won Emmys.

  • Zach Smith

    Half of them identify as women, so that’s covered. They are self-loathing whites, and that’s nearly as good as being actual minorities.

  • jabberwocky

    The Emmy’s shouldn’t even exist, Period. Who cares about these idiots.
