Stolen Emails and Racism in Hollywood

Hosted by

"Hollywood is full of racism, but it has been able to hide behind its liberal reputation." That’s a tweet from Dr. Todd Boyd as personal emails from Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal were spreading across the Internet and into the mainstream media. Dr. Boyd holds the Katherine and Frank Price Endowed Chair for the Study of Race and Popular Culture at USC's School of Cinematic Arts. We get perspective from him and from Sharon Waxman, Editor in Chief of The Wrap.
