Chris Rock writes an essay about Hollywood and race issues

Newscast Media LOS ANGELES—Comedian Chris Rock writes an essay about racist
attitudes in Hollywood and the entertainment industry, including the challenges he

Meanwhile in Europe, they have been trying to fight racism in sports, and in the video
