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 <a href=http://whitneywfgn.kazeo.com they met with Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal on Dec. 18.' /> 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 this site producer Scott Rudin. Their reported emails read like they were cribbed from an old Larry Sanders Show episode, with the pair sounding like caricatures of clueless, racially oblivious fat cats.

Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, "to discuss a healing process," as she told The Hollywood Reporter. The Rev.
