Stacey Dash’s #Oscar cameo didn’t flop, it revealed hollywood’s real cringeworthy diversity problem



Highlights from Source

- The silence after Stacey Dash's joke wasn't that it fell flat, it was that it showcased what Hollywood really thinks of ideological diversity.

- POC actors and actresses deserve more roles. But if you have a Hollywood cast that looks different and THINKS EXACTLY THE SAME, you don't have real diversity.

- In their absolute thirst for different varieties of skin tone, they miss out on the one type of diversity that would make it truly interesting: Ideological diversity.

- Past Sunday night, you witnessed a rare instances when they did encounter a conservative, and that’s when their ‘open-mindedness’ really kicks in. A moment that revealed just how unwilling Hollywood is to embrace anyone who thinks differently.

Paraphrased from Chris Rock's monologue: Everything is not about sexism or racism. Sometimes, it’s just about ideological and political elitism.
