* Latonja Sinckler is a licensed attorney and a member of the Florida bar. She would
like to thank her family and friends for getting her through law school. In addition, she
would like give a special thanks to Professor Susan Carle for helping her parse out the
idea for this paper and bringing it to publishable quality. Latonja sincerely hopes this
article will help illuminate Hollywood's casting industry as well encourage others to
change the status quo.
