    In a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter, “The Steve Harvey Show” host said he’s learned through the nearly 20 years of his career that “Hollywood is very racist.”

    “Hollywood is more racist than America is. They put things on TV that they think the masses will like,” he said. “Well, the masses have changed. The election of President Obama should prove that. And television should look entirely different. Kerry Washington should not be the first African American female to head up a drama series in 40 years. In 40 years! That’s crazy.”

    With his experience in the industry, Harvey said he’s learned to navigate Hollywood by creating multidimensional projects that don’t focus on race, or particularly African Americans.

    Judging by his longevity, looks like his plan has been successful.

    What do you think of Steve Harvey’s statement? Do you think Hollywood is racist?
