Hollywood's diversity issue is no laughing matter. Whether it's the whitewashing of other culture's stories by refusing to cast minorities as leads in films or men getting away with sexually assaulting women, Tinseltown is a place where privilege runs amok, and trying to do anything about it means an uphill battle.

Yet there's something undeniably funny about a guy like writer Aaron Sorkin, whose verbose TV shows and films (The West Wing, The Social Network, The Newsroom) project the air of smug know-it-all-ism, saying he never realized that Hollywood had these kinds of problems. Speaking with radio host and film critic Elvis Mitchell at the Writers Guild Festival on Saturday, he seemed altogether perplexed and openly shocked at how such things could happen.
