There is racism everywhere even in money !
Data released by Variety shows, for example, that Shondaland actresses Viola Davis (HTGAWM) and Kerry Washington (Scandal) make $250,000 per episode, far less than Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo, who brings in $400,000 per episode. “That Davis, in particular, isn’t commanding more is frankly perplexing — she won the Best Actress Emmy in 2015 and was nominated again in September, and she splits her time between television and a successful movie career (including the recent summer hitSuicide Squad),” Variety writes.
“Further down the list still are Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard, Empire Stars previous Oscar nominees, and the stars of the highest-rated drama on television, Fox’s Empire. They are said to earn $175,000 an episode — less than the stars of some dramas that could only aspire to achieve half ofEmpire’s ratings. (Their on-screen sons, Trai Byers, Jussie Smollett and Bryshere Y. Gray, are paid just $20,000 per episode.)”
