PART II: Thoughts on Hollywood and People of Color
 
LL Cool J - (Part II) A Perspective on the NAACP's Call to Boycott
Well my answer to that is don't picket, don't boycott, take some of the money that is donated to the NAACP and hire writers and create some pilots, create some shows for African Americans. Take them to the networks and do something with the money and do something with the talent and be productive. That's important to me, the productivity part of it. I think that we have to be productive in what we are doing.

Nia Long (Part II) - A woman, A Black Woman and Blacků
There needs to be a variety of ethnicities behind the scene. Our society is not white and Black - there are so many things in between. Until we are represented on both sides of the screen we are not really getting very far.
