VIDEO: Octavia Spencer Talks Diversity In Hollywood. Challenges Us To Support What We Want To See

By Team BLAM

Octavia Spencer talks about diversity in Hollywood in this clip and says we can’t put all of the blame on Hollywood when it comes to the films and media we see represented most of the time. She says Hollywood puts out what they feel dollars will support meaning what we (you and me) will spend our money on. So, the question for me personally is do they put out what they feel dollars will go to or what they know money will go to?

I agree with Octavia in that we must support what we want to see but I’m not sure that’s enough. We have to be the funders and creators of what we want to see as well. Thoughts fam?
