'Every Single Word' Tumblr Highlights Lack of Diversity in Film

A new Tumblr has gone viral after showcasing diversity issues in Hollywood.

Run by Hispanic actor/director Dylan Marron, the blog features clips from mainstream films that compile every word spoken by a person of color in that movie.

Films like Wedding Crashers only have 39 seconds worth of footage, while Black Swan has even fewer with 24.

The edited clips also show how limiting the roles are – with people of color playing an assistant, a bus driver, a minister, and other very brief parts.

Watch the example below for The Fault in Our Stars.

    Tumblr has turned into a place where you cannot express yourself unless you are “underprivileged”. If you are white and straight, you are considered to be incredibly lucky in life and therefore, you are not entitled to raise an opinion which stands in opposition to those shared by the majority of Tumblr users. And these kiddos can be mean, really.

    It is a very interesting project, though, and I will be more than eager to see the rest of these movies. I’d only like to say that in case of TFiOS, the movie is based on the book and I think that changing the race of the main character would be considered as a little bit too advanced change.

    Way to go, Dylan. Very appreciative of this project.
