Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons sat down with VladTV where shared his thoughts on the lack of diversity in Hollywood, including the lack of black higher ups in the infrastructure of the industry.

He also touched on the recent #OscarsSoWhite controversy that ignited over the lack of diversity at this year’s awards show, and says that he is more outraged by the overall segregation in the industry. Speaking more about the situation, Russell explained that in Hollywood, black comedians are lumped into specific nights of the week like “Chocolate Sunday” to do their routines instead of being integrated with all types of comedians.
