Systemic Racism in Hollywood

Updated: Aug 4, 2023

Systemic racism in Hollywood is the persistent and structural discrimination and exclusion of people of color from the entertainment industry. It affects their representation, opportunities, recognition and earnings. Some sources claim that it costs the industry $10 billion a year. Source

Published by Statista Research Department, Jun 13, 2023

After reaching an all-time high in 2020, the share of lead actors in movies in the United States that the source identified as people of color experienced a decrease in 2022, standing just above 21 percent. A decade earlier, approximately 10.5 percent of the lead actors in U.S. films were not white. Source

Minorities behind and before the big screen:

The percentage of non-white movie writers in the U.S. has also been on the rise, going from less than eight percent in 2011 to over 32 percent a decade later, before dropping at 12.4 in 2022. Meanwhile, cinema audiences in the U.S. remained predominantly Caucasian, with white viewers accounting for 57 percent of the movie tickets sold in 2021, the highest share in a historical series started in 2015. Hispanic or Latino-identifying people traditionally hold the second-largest percentage, roughly accounting for one-quarter of moviegoers in the U.S.. Source

According to Statista, approximately 83 percent of film directors in the United States were white, while the remaining 17 percent were part of ethnic minorities in 2022.
