Celebrities are speaking out on social media after the Confederate flag was taken down in South Carolina on Friday morning (July 10).

The historic moment came weeks after the Charleston church shooting and lots of pressure on lawmakers to remove the symbol of racism.

The flag was raised above the South Carolina State House back in 1962 to protest the civil rights movement and the state House of Representatives finally voted to take it down on Thursday. Governor Haley signed the measure into law later that day.

'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.
