The Diversity Gap in the highest grossing science fiction and fantasy films. Sad, right? You can see the full study here.
from the infographic:
Among the top 100 domestic grossing films:
- only 8% of films star a protagonist of color
- of the 8 protagonists of color, all are men; 6 are played by Will Smith and 1 is a cartoon character (Aladdin)
- 0% of protagonists are women of color
- 0% of protagonists are LGBTQ
- 1% of protagonists are people with a disability
I hope this doesn’t sound whiney: Listen, I love everyone, all their flaws and all their hopes n’ dreams. I just wanted to mention something I see ALOT on twitter. If you start a tweet with an “@” it means only the person you are tweeting at and also accounts that happen to follow both of you will see it. This means the top tweet was sent out to the few hundred people and made for super awesome word of mouth (a band’s best and truest friend!) and the bottom one is a very nice sentiment but no one will ever see it but us. I don’t want to sound ungrateful because both are pure acts of positivity but the bottom tweet is a missed opportunity. I see blogs, popular music-related sites and personalities make this mistake all the time. It’s still an amazing, wonderful gesture and a purely nice thing, but with the addition of a “.” or a “hey” could have been an even bigger and nicer thing. Also while I have your ear, I wanted to say that you’re beautiful wether or not you know you’re beautiful and THAT’S what makes you beautiful.
