BET’s Cane: Congress More Diverse Than Oscar Voters ‘Disturbing’


Black Entertainment Network personality Clay Cane spoke on MSNBC Saturday about diversity in Hollywood.

Cane noted that black actors used to not be “sellable” in movies. He said he wished that Hollywood would notice that black movies like Tyler Perry movies or “Straight Outta Compton” do well at the box office. He added that movies without diversity are not as marketable as they once were.

“It’s unfortunate, if you look at the Oscar voters, Congress is more diverse than the Oscar voters,” said Cane. “That’s kind of disturbing to me.”
