Study Shows Hollywood Is Pretty Darned Bigoted On Latino Immigrants

So, we already know that rape, sexual assault, and sexism are rampent throughout the very Democrat Party leaning Hollywood. Now we learn something else about the Left leaning entertainment industry

Half of Latino Immigrant Characters on TV Are Portrayed as Criminals, Study Finds (Exclusive)

Define American, the immigration nonprofit founded by Pulitzer-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas, has released its first-ever media reference guide for writers, directors and producers. (WT – that’s the same guy who’s an illegal alien)

Immigrants and Immigration: A Guide for Entertainment Professionals is a 19-page brief that defines key terms (“blanket waiver,” “mixed-status family”) and breaks down current key issues in immigration law, including the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and the U visa for victims of violent crimes.

“Immigration is the most controversial yet least understood issue in America today. That’s why it’s crucial for Define American to publish a resource for members of the entertainment industry to better understand immigration and more accurately portray immigrants,” says Elizabeth Grizzle Voorhees, who joined Define American as its inaugural entertainment media director last summer. “These tools are written specifically for creative professionals, and we hope they will lead to increased representation and more humanized storytelling in television and film.”

Remember, networks are increasingly adding illegal aliens in as main characters to shows.

In addition to the guide, Define American has released a scorecard on the state of immigration representation on television, taken from The Opportunity Agenda’s study of 40 popular broadcast, cable and streaming shows that aired between April 2014 and June 2016. That report found that immigrants were underrepresented with just 6 percent of roles in the sampling (while comprising 17 percent of the U.S. population). However, they are overrepresented as criminals, with half of Latino and a quarter of Middle Eastern immigrant characters shown engaging in criminal activity. In real life, U.S. census and American Community Survey data has found that immigrant males between the ages of 18 and 39 are approximately half as likely to be incarcerated as their native-born counterparts.

Huh. That’s rather bigoted of the left leaning entertainment industry, is it not?

Of course, when it comes to illegal aliens, 100% of them are criminals.
