https://dei.amazonstudios.com/inclusion-policy/Amazon Studios | Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion



To reduce invisibility in entertainment, and where the story allows, we aim to include one character from each of the following categories for speaking roles of any size, and at minimum 50% of the total of these should be women: (1) lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or gender non-conforming / non-binary; (2) person with a disability; and (3) three regionally underrepresented racial/ethnic/cultural groups (e.g. in the US, three of the following: Black, Latinx, Indigenous, Middle Eastern/North African, or Asian / Pacific Islander or Multi-Racial). A single character can fulfill one or more of these identities.

Most productions have a multitude of speaking roles, from leads to smaller roles. Where it doesn’t compromise the authenticity of the story, the minimum aspirational goals for casting across speaking roles are 30% white men, 30% white women and non-binary people, 20% men from underrepresented races and ethnicities, 20% women and non-binary people from underrepresented races and ethnicities. Where we can have more people from underrepresented racial/ethnic groups, we will seek to do that. These goals apply to open casting roles as well as talent attached to the project at the time an agreement is signed with Amazon Studios. We also aspire to cast at least 10% of our roles with people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or gender non-conforming / non-binary; and 10% with people who self-identify as a person with a disability. Amazon Studios is dedicated to making a good faith effort to inclusive casting and we encourage our partners to do the same.


As mentioned above, when storylines or the top billing characters involve underrepresented communities (women, underrepresented racial/ethnic groups, sexual orientation, gender identity, people with disabilities), we aim to have a minimum 30% of above-the-line staff hires (Directors, Writers, Producers, and/or Creators) who identify with the identity groups being depicted on screen. This aspirational goal will increase to 50% by 2024. A single team member can fulfill one or more of these identities.

That is just another reason I am happy I retired. That crap was just taking hold when I retired. Only had to be "politically correct" in a couple of scripts I wrote. One had to do with "violence" and the other with writing a bad guy character as a black man.

Long ago and far away, as they say. wink

If you buy into the "Woke Culture", they would have you believe that 70% of America is gay, 40% are trans and 87% are in bi-racial relationships. In contrast, about 3% are straight married couples of the same race but opposite sex. Such complete horseshit...

40% would be a big stretch, but there would be a lot more trans if they'd stop committing suicide. But then, nature does tend to self regulate well.

They’re hoping that Tolkien fans will look past all the dumbfuquery and the fringe elements will watch it for the dumbfuquery.

If you take note of the headers on the Fire home page, most are targeted at the alternative demos.
