Chestnut: 'Hollywood Isn't Racist'

Black actor MORRIS CHESTNUT has defended Hollywood against claims the studios are racist - insisting the movie industry is motivated by money, not skin colour.
A number of stars have accused the studio system of discriminating against artists, based on their race; most notably Halle Berry and Salma Hayek.
But Last Boy Scout star Chestnut rejects the notion, telling Hip Hop Weekly, "Hollywood's not black and it's not white - it's green.
"Once you start making that green they don't care what colour you are and that's just the way it is."
