Because many minority actors have been requested to play stereotypical roles, from immigrants to prostitutes, thugs, criminals, and maids. This ought to change, and it will be extra helpful for the movie business to take action before later as a result of hundreds of thousands of {dollars} left on the desk every year due to the persistent inequality drawback in Hollywood.
