Why does Hollywood box black people in with stereotypes?

erikaThe Cosby Show’s Erika Alexander a.k.a Pam Tucker (Claire’s distant cousin), breaks down the appearance of racism in Hollywood.  The main topic of discussion was whether or not there is a fear of creating non-stereotypical roles for black people in film.  Alexander claims there is, in an interview with Madame Noire.

“I think you fear what you don’t know, what you don’t understand” she answers. “I think African Americans have always been the ‘dark other.’ I think it scares people.”

Alexander explains that this fear comes from racism, and that it is so ingrained within the subconscious that executives and producers in Hollywood don’t even realize that they’re being racist.

“They’ll say, ‘oh we’d love to hire him! He was fantastic! He was a great read and he did a great job on the audition (The young man could be black).’
