Robinson Says Entertainment Industry May Be Violating Title VII

Robinson_1 Russell Robinson, UCLA, has conducted an entertainment industry casting study -- in conjunction with the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center -- which finds that Latino, black, Asian American and Native American actors have few acting opportunities available to them. Professor Robinson notes that these actors may have grounds for legal recourse under Title VII.  The problem is not casting for roles designed for a specific sex or race, he concludes, but limiting casting calls by sex or race when a particular sex or race is not important to the story line.
