A thirteen-year survivor of the NYC Film/TV Production world, I have personal insight into the #OscarsSoWhite controversy. It is much deeper than the talent pool. The changes need to occur in the development offices, film and TV production offices, networks, agencies and the film sets. Hollywood needs to either change or be forced to change. Because otherwise, we will be hashtagging #OscarsSoWhite for many decades to come.
