Hollywood is a weird place. It celebrates “diversity” yet its people live as far away from Black and Hispanic people as possible. No place on earth is Whiter than Malibu. And as much as Hollywood hates ordinary White people, they have proven complete failures at reaching Mexican audiences. Funny, semi-ironic hipster stuff like Juno, Little Miss Sunshine, the Office, 30 Rock, and Sideways don’t appeal to working class or poorer Mexicans. Who prefer broad, very Mexican stuff like Sabado Gigante.
Any quick views of Telemundo or Univision (which Conan O’Brien likes to mock) reveals a huge and unbridgeable culture gap. Hollywood is good at making SWPL movies and Television and books (Lovely Bones, Tuesdays with Morry) that SWPL hipsters love. Semi illiterate dishwashers, car-washers, day laborers, and waiters from Southern Mexico? Not so much.
Nor is Hollywood prepared for the economic difference, when very poor Mexicans make up the largest consumer of entertainment. If Hollywood is hurting with Redbox, Netflix, Amazon, Apple, and now Facebook offering movies for dirt-cheap, how will it handle an impoverished Mexican population that can only spend say, $1 or so for the biggest hit movie? Hollywood and its entire infrastructure, from movies to ad-supported TV to cable-supported TV, depends on a White middle class audience that will buy/view/support the culture of Hollywood, and reward them very well financially.
Sooner or later, Hollywood movers and shakers are going to go bankrupt (like former NFL Star Tiki Barber, trying to return to the NFL at age 35 after his fling with a hot blonde 19 year old intern left him unable to pay for his divorce, and fired from the NBC Today Show). Because they will be unable to reach the new Mexican majority audience, at cheap enough levels. Mansions in Malibu are great, but someone has to pay for them. That means, on a certain level, most projects have to make money, or some make enormous amounts of money, to support that level of wealth.
This means, ultimately, Hollywood has to either become very, very Mexican, with Mexican producers, writers, actors, and such replacing the nearly all White SWPL cadre in place now, with those replaced happy and delighted to be replaced, or somehow Hollywood White SWPL folks all become “Mexican inside” speaking fluent Spanish, completely immersed in Mexican culture, and able to churn out movie after movie with masked Mexican Luchidors driving around doing Luchidor like things.
The likelihood of either happening is so close to zero as to be statistically insignificant. Therefore, Hollywood is bound to fail on demographics alone, leaving aside the transformative nature of technology. As it does, and Hollywood hipsters are shocked to find their mansions foreclosed upon, expect a massive turnabout. A Mexican majority nation won’t support a SWPL Hollywood. Simple as that.
