The Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe feels that it is "pretty undeniable" that Hollywood is still racist.
The 27-year-old actor believes that Hollywood as a film industry is quite "lagging behind" in terms of appreciating and acknowledging what people from across the globe and all races actually can offer and contribute for its overall development.
When he was asked if Hollywood is still racist, the Harry Potter actor said, "Yes. I mean it's pretty undeniable, that's the thing, we like to think of ourselves as being a very progressive industry but we have been lagging behind in all kinds of areas and it's been very well documented."
"I think there's lots of things about the Oscars, there's lots of amazing performances every year that don't get recognised. I feel like there's a lot that's unseen about the process." Daniel added.
However, he also said that, of late, things have slightly changed and it has only got better than it was a few years ago. He feels that the condition has improved in Hollywood, in terms of versatility and appreciating a performance irrespective of its caste or colour.
"I do think that now these things have come up, things are going to start changing. I'm starting to see it in scripts that I read," added the actor.
