KERRY WASHINGTON OPENS UP ABOUT DIVERSIT IN HOLLYWOOD: In an interview with the Hollywood the Sequel podcast, Kerry Washington opened up about diversity in Hollywood. She said, “We look at ourselves to get better and do better. When we say we’re committed to diversity — it’s diverse from what? We’re still centering whiteness as the most important thing and inviting diversity around that.” She continued, “Or when we talk about inclusivity, there’s still an in and an out. So, we’re still centering certain kinds of people and maybe in tiny fractions allowing other people to the table. There’s just so much of it that needs to reexamined. The simple answer is … I hope a lot of good [comes out of it] and that we can see each other, and have courage to make room for each other.”
