The problem is not about who "owns" the media, but on what ideology people who run the media are infused with.
Despite exceptions in film and series, the postmodern construction of reality holds power.
That ideology (which most Arts and humanities' students are exposed to in higher learning) still views non-white races as "othered" and in opposition
to what they assume is white, male power.
But, as David Icke and many others point out, the black and minority elites are long since a part of the system and Illuminati
So what we get is deflection, that really serves nobody, except the upper class elite who produce these "turkeys".
In cop-series like CSI or Law and Order they do have mixed acting (it is not 98% white) and I'm still looking out for black serial killers on
The problem with serial killers is that they are evil, but also highly intelligent.
So avoiding them is really racist both ways.
The absence is really saying black criminals don't have the intelligence to be serial killers.
Black crime is more like a sudden loss of impulse control - it's not clever or classy crime.
It's just like black, regular gay men are avoided, going back to ideas of black hypermasculinity in the slave trade (the idea that blacks are closest
to nature, and therefore essentially heterosexual).
We have several gay characters on Desperate Housewives - none of them black men.
So we have movies made for particular markets (mostly comedies and romantic movies) where most of the cast is indeed one race.
Then we have more "complex" material which supposedly reflects the complications of a melting pot in US cities.
Here the cast is mixed, but the main, responsible culprit is usually white. This is supposed to be the "intelligent" stuff.
Then we have mainstream movies, which are hard-pressed to be politically correct, usually with ridiculous results.
I saw "Clash of the Titans "(2010 version) last night.
Usually a European story, suddenly a bunch of scorpion-riding Bedouin-like "Arabs" appear, whose sole contribution to the script is a constipated
Now that is just forced.
