‘Quotas are necessary’ to change the racist, sexist culture in Hollywood, say women directors

Then shouldn’t the panel be half male?

“If that’s what it takes, then that’s what it takes,” added Rachel Goldberg, one of seven directors on the panel.

    So the sexist racists have spoken. Bully for them, but it still remains total BS. They are promoting blatant discrimination based on race and sex. No, we have had enough of this crap.

  • Tooth&Claw

    You could do that. However you can’t make people watch your experiments.

      If you wanted to crush Hollywood you couldn’t ask for better allies…

    The implementation of the new Jim Crow laws against the employment of White males continues.
    This was never about equality, it’s about exclusion.

    • Malcolm Y

      As Nicholas Stix, journalist and contributor to Vdare.com calls them: Jim Snow laws.

        Wow!
        Somebody else (of note) with the exact same thought as me.
        Cool!

      Canada just brought in a new policy that if your company does direct or indirect contract work for the feds you have 3 years to replace enough staff that 20% are minorities from specific classes. You also have to meet the 20% in each of 14 categories of employees… ie you can’t have 100% of you secretarial pool and get credit for the all white engineering department.

      If you fail to meet the quotas set by year 3 you can’t do government work and you get your business listed on the shame list.

        Well Ottawa wouldn’t want to work with anyone even slightly less mediocre than they are.

        Dumb down your workforce and you’re in business!

          Exactly, don’t hire people because of skill or qualifications, hire them based on color, sexual preference or mental problems.

          I guess you can’t be smarter than justin to get a job.

      • Drunk by Noon ✓

        That’s very progressive, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t have something similar down here.
        A shame on both of us.

        • Alain

          I believe you do. At least you did, but I don’t know for sure if it has changed under Trump.

    • canminuteman

      I always tell my children that they should plan n being self employed, because it is the only way they will get work.

  • deplorabledave

    I don’t see no negroes up there. Physician heal thyself.

      They hate men more than they love negros.

  • SDMatt

    It would be better if they addressed the crappy quality of movies that Hollyweird has been putting out for several decades.

  • Sorry girls. Today it is possible for anyone with an inexpensive camera to make a movie.

    You do not need (a pile of money or) a studio.

    Get off your dead asses and do the job. Be creative.

    If your work is good, no-one will ask what your gender or race is.

    Quit your fricking whining.

    To improve Hollywood, try literate scripts. The 1930s and 1940s were the Golden Age for a reason.

  • ontario john

    Yes, because what the world needs, is more crappy movies that no one wants to see. I know, lets have another Al Gore movie.

  • DaninVan

    Ahem, Ladies: may I have your attention please?
    At least 1/2 the paying audience are male. Probably more than 1/2 are paying for both their own ticket and their female companion’s (just guessing).
    How excited are those guys going to be about being forced to watch pc dreck?
    Hey, their are some great women directors; that’s not my point.
    Hollywood is dying already; layering this on top isn’t going to help.

  • Martin B

    Yes, let’s cast and direct our movies by quotas. People will line up around the block to go see them.

  • ontario john

    Well, as long as they stick to their official policy of having gay characters in every movie and TV show.

    • Alain

      They will be including trannies now. That is the latest objective: the normalisation of trannyhood.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Trannies will soon be so over-subscribed that most will become anorexic from the stress of it all. Rent-A-Tranny operations will pop up hither, thither and yon. The demand for trannies will be so great that beta males will voluntarily get their dicks cut off just for the employment opportunity such a move will afford them. It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad world. Sad.

        • DaninVan

          ‘My tranny needs a rebuild’ has taken on a whole new meaning.

  • Uncommunist

    I wonder how much taxpayer money they are feeding off of, surely not selling a good product ! Professional bsers that can’t produce a product worth anything… Enter their ‘saviour’, one of the gods of marxism – tada , Gubmint.

    Women destroy everything, every time, without exception.

  • Hard Little Machine

    I don’t care since the whole industry is a flaming tampon

    • Justin St.Denis

      In a nutshell. Well stated, btw.

  • simus1

    But directors like these are just talented multi taskers “in charge of assembly and production”, mere engineers.
    Producers are a lot closer to the top of the food chain, they are the ones who build a smart idea into a viable concept and sell it to hard cases who can unlock the big money spigot.

  • Blacksmith

    Yeah do that, it will flush the remainder of your viewership down the toilet.
