Who rates for Hollywood

Solidifying USC's reputation as a school no one interested in serious intellectual work would attend, Stacy L. Smith, Marc Choueiti and Katherine Pieper claim;
...top grossing films do not fully represent the audiences they target. Stories and storytellers should reflect viewers who hail from different cultural backgrounds.
Which seems a tad arrogant. But the statistics presented don't even support the assertion. As they say, in American movies;

Nudity or showing exposed skin between the mid chest and high upper thigh region varied by race/ethnicity. Hispanic females (37.5%) were more likely than females from all other races/ethnicities to be shown partially or fully naked on screen.
While the study also claims that Hispanics, while comprising only 16.3% of the population of the U.S., buy 25% of the movie tickets.
