Fans poured a questioning critique on the celebratory news that Ciara and husband Russell Wilson have signed with the Creative Artists Agency, citing the low number of people of color not only on their direct management team, but on CAA’s roster worldwide.
According to the website Diverse Representation, among CAA’s offices around the world, only 17 of their hundreds of agents are black.
After posting a video clip with Ciara and Wilson waving and cheering in front of CSA agents, fans weighed in on the dearth of colored faces. The Atlanta Black Star shares the Twitter commentary:
“Only two black on y’all team…Wow.”
“And of course everyone is white back there… we need more black presence.”
