Tyler Perry is wrong about Race and Wealth in Hollywood in The Hollywood Reporter

0

Attorney and Emmy Nominated Producer Antonio Moore reviews the recent Hollywood Reporter interview of Media Mogul Tyler Perry. In the piece Perry states “I don't think it's black and white, I think it's green. It's just about,Where's the money?” In this video lays out the case that by making it about money, it inherently is about the consequence of America’s racial history. In his Huffpost piece “America’s Financial Divide” Moore states, According to the Slate.com article “The Wealth Gap Between Blacks and Whites is Even More Enormous Than You Think”, the median white family has a net worth of $116,000 dollars. This indicates 41 million white households across the nation have over $116,000 dollars in net worth. In comparison, nearly 40 percent or 5.6 million African American homes in the U.S. have zero or negative net worth. In addition, when you deduct the family car as an asset, the median black family in America only has a net worth of $1,700 dollars.This tells a story of access and opportunity and the lasting effect of a history ripe with dissemination of advantage based on color. If nearly all of the American wealth is in white households, how do we ever expect to achieve access for all?
