Re: Why Is Diversity Focused Only On Race & Species?
As I understand it Christopher, you legally can discriminate when hiring actors, and when hiring models. In terms of age, gender, appearance, disabilities, changing weight, etc.
But why would you want to?
Only one reason: ratings.
In particular, producers and studios are concerned about appeal most in the markets where the show will yield the most revenue.
Yeah, I know, obvious answer is obvious.
