 The Hollywood Reporter writer Marisa Guthrie wrote a lengthy profile of Steve Harvey in March 2013, in which the TV personality addressed the issue of race in Hollywood:  She captured Harvey’s criticism of the industry in the following quote:

“Hollywood is still very racist. … Hollywood is more racist than America is. They put things on TV that they think the masses will like. Well, the masses have changed. The election of President Obama should prove that. And television should look entirely different. [Scandal star] Kerry Washington should not be the first African-American female to head up a drama series in 40 years. In 40 years! That’s crazy.”
