Infographic: Diversity in Hollywood

Or lack thereof, really.

Thanks to Brianna Higgins of BAH Studios Doodles for this nice infographic of casting practices in Hollywood, based on race. Culled from research by Sociological Images, we see only 11.1 percent of leading actor roles go to African Americans, only 1.2 percent to Latinos and only 1.8 percent to Asian Americans. So much for the beigeing and browning of America.

I do like that pale mauve shade that Brianna gives to “white,” though.
