Netflix will spend $100 million to improve diversity on film

On Friday, Netflix released a diversity study to analyze the makeup of Netflix’s on-screen talent, as well as the behind-the-camera creators. The report shows that the company has made progress, but has more work to do to close diversity gaps. The company also committed $100M over the next five years in organizations that help underrepresented communities train and find jobs in TV and film.

So we will have more black Robin hoods while crying every time a white character plays an Asian Why doesn't Netflix go to nollywood and make pure black movies for black people? It can be in Nigerian and be made 100% in Africa. They are currently doing it for Asian movies. They make many Asian movies with only Asian language and Asian actors. There is no forced diversity by putting a single white person in a Chinese historical series set in the xhing dynasty... but we have to suffer a random black prince in the middle of 1400's brittany for some reason (and complaining makes you racist) Else only use the character that is best for the role. Forced diversity creates racism, doesn't reduce it. Just like affirmative action it is actually proven to be widely disposed and counter productive

Can't wait to see the diversity-filled period pieces. Mulan definitely needed more Hispanic people. Schindler's list could have used more blacks. Civil war movies need more Asians and Lord of the Flies severely underrepresented women. Can't wait for the remakes.

Instead, spend $100m to have original content that people want to see. Instead of removing whites from old timey white-written stories ... *leans toward mic*, make new content that honors other cultures and tells their stories if you care that much. I vote we award zero woke points for this move to take the moral high ground nobody wants.

Netflix is a joke, they made a historical tv series based on the regency period full of black people 🤦 they also make white characters black in all their fiction, while also hiring bad woke writers. *Cough* the witcher

I thought I wasted too much money. How exactly do you even spend 100 million to improve diversity? Will "diverse" employees make more money? Someone please explain why you have to spend a bunch of extra money to hire minorities. Oh, I forgot it's all just some kind of corporate virtue signalling.

when these shows fail, and they will, the media and the left will cry racism even though they used nothing but black actors. and they will try again waisting seasons on unpopular pc, woke shows instead of giving all people what all people want, historically accurate time pieces.

Yeah. This is great. I feel way over represented when the key grip and actors are all hereditarily human. Good stuff. I have an odea..... why dont we fill all positions with qualified people based on merit, benefit to a company and skill? Instead of looks? Or is that reasonable? Whatever. First coke. Then netflix. I'm going to run out of options here before too long.

Netflix can't make people watch these diversity shows. I doubt they care because their money comes from the subscription to the service whether you watch the shows or no one watches. The millions they paid the Obama s and Meghan and Harry is part of the plan. I cancelled my subscription after many years because of Cuties. Only when people cancel or never subscribe, will they listen to the people. They didn't budge over the outrages and cancelations that resulted over Cuties, so the voices have to be louder and stronger. Pandering doesn't fix inequality, but "equity" is not the answer either.
