Fast Facts:

Diversity on Television– While minorities make up approximately 40% of the population in the United States, they make up only 6% of lead roles on television.

A University of Georgia study showed that employers prefer light-skinned Black men to dark-skinned men, regardless of the qualifications of the candidate. The study found that a light-skinned Black male with a Bachelor’s degree and typical work experience was preferred over a dark-skinned Black male with an MBA and past managerial positions (Starr, 2011).
