Actress Supports A Hispanic Affirmative Action Move In Hollywood


Actress and immigration reform activist Eva Longoria appears to support a sort of Hispanic affirmative action movement with the Hollywood community.

The Mexican-American actress has stated that “We (Hispanics) are about 16 percent of the population, but we’re only 7 percent in films and television,” adding that Hispanics should not just aspire to be actors, but to become “producers, directors, writers.”

“We should create the content we want to see on television,” said Longoria.
