    Far less women comics also. People should be told what to find funny.

    Doesn't the box office dictate what people will be paid and who will be in films.

    73% movie roles are white, so what. Whites make like 75% of the population in the US.

    WTH? The majority of top grossing films are action flicks. Although I seem to remember that Julie Newmar - to wong chu with love and the birdcage did well when they released; typically we aren't going to spend money to watch a movie about drag queens daily lives - we get that for free on reality tv.

    Interpreted another way, the data seems to indicate that people enjoy watching white people in movies considering they are choosing to pay money to go out and watch these films. If white people starring in movies were a really a problem then people would not choose to watch them.

    It could also be the fact that people want to see a movie because it's entertaining and they really don't give a shit about the skin color of the people starring in the movie.

    Yup, this seems like a bunch of hullaballoo.

    Focusing on sales speaks to consumer trends, not the suppliers, but these people are trying to imply that because people pay to watch mostly white movies, that there's some diversity issue among the suppliers. Makes little sense.

    This is the same thing that comes up in the black community about films and the answer is always the same: If you want Hollywood to make more black movies then prioritize those movies when you're spending your money. If you're skipping the latest Tyler Perry melodrama but watching the latest Tom Cruise action flick then the numbers are going to reflect that and decisions will be made accordingly.

    I hate when legitimate diversity issues get sidetracked by this type of bs.

    The issue shouldn't so much the percentage at which minorities are represented, but the way they're represented.

    I feel like a minority amongst minorities. I hate that Tyler Perry has basically been chosen as the representative for "black movies".

    The NY Times should include porn films.

    That'll narrow the gap between male and female roles right there.

    It would also shine a light on an oppressive wage gap.
