Sony Hack Reveals Hollywood's Acceptance Of White Privilege : Code Switch : Npr

The Rev. Al Sharpton (left) and Marc Morial, president of the National Urban League, speak to reporters after they met with Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal on Dec. 18. This seems the surface lesson of the emails unearthed by hackers into Sony's computer records. I haven't seen the kim kardashian photoshoot stolen emails or any of the other data hacked from Sony's computers. My thoughts are based on what I've read and heard about emails whose content Sony has not disputed. And many of those reports detail racially insensitive OK, Shonda Rhimes, you're right : let's just call them racist jokes between studio executive Amy Pascal and movie producer Scott Rudin. Their reported emails read like they were cribbed from an old Larry http://zyxkoenaidaotconant.centerblog.net Sanders Show episode, with the pair sounding like caricatures of clueless, racially oblivious fat cats. Small wonder Pascal reached out to the media's highest-profile advocates on issues involving racism, the Rev. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, "to discuss a healing process," as she told The Hollywood Reporter.
