So white folks should boycott the Olympic games track and field events because black folks dominate those and this is unfair.
This is their precious black logic.

It does look strange.
Creed got nominations for the white writers and supporting actor, the only white guy in the movie.
No noms in the last 2 years for any person of colour?
Not saying its deliberate but its odd.

Don't you know that skin color is the most important factor for everything?... Heck, even the President was picked mostly because of skin color instead of people looking for any true qualifying attribute...
I don't give a crap what color or nationality anyone is, because it really doesn't matter, or it shouldn't matter. There are some good black actors who have won oscars and have been nominated for being good, but this is turning more into an "entitlement society", where skin color is more important than any real attributes a person has... Fascinating times we live in huh?...

Oscar Voters: 94% White, 76% Men, and an Average of 63 Years Old
This article came out almost 2 years ago, but nothing has changed. The "Academy" is a relic of the past. About all they are good for is letting someone in their inner circles leak DVD screeners to PirateBay.

How is it alright for there to be racially exclusive awards (BET), but if a NON racially exclusive awards just happens to not choose Black actors, despite having done so in the past, people get all up in arms?
I thought this was suppose to be about acting, not skin color and the perception of entitlement.
To be fair, Marshall Mathers AKA Eminem has been nominated a bunch of times for BET and has and won a award with them on the hip hop version... source
So I guess it's not racially exclusive. culturally maybe...both The Oscars or any group either in my opinion, would be guilty of this and is just simply the culture of socialites being exclusive/ pat on the back/ hee haw/ post game /shower towel slap/tickle fight clubs that they appear to be and nothing more.
And I thought the Oscars was just a big circle jerk of the rich and ignorant.nothing to get all up in arms about indeed. especially by us lowly cogs of the machine.
