Calls for a boycott of the Academy Awards are growing over the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences' second straight year of mostly white nominees, as Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett Smith each said Monday that they will not attend this year's ceremony.
In a lengthy Instagram post, Lee said he "cannot support" the "lily white" Oscars.
Jada tweeted 'people of color' are rarely recognized for our artistic accomplishments. Should people of color refrain from participating all together?
I thought this was suppose to be about acting, not skin color and the perception of entitlement.

Well, you know....
...kids now get trophies for showing up at organized sports games...not for winning...
And affirmative action...we all know how well that works...
Why the hell not. Let's just unilaterally pick winners based off of skin color...
In everything. Not just the Oscars.
