I judge movies not by the color of the skin, but by the character of their content.

1958 - First black nominee leading role for an Oscar
1963- First black Oscar winner for a leading role- Sidney Poitier
1939 - First black Osacr winner supporting role...Hattie McDaniel

Over 50 years ago for the first lead actor award...before the I have a dream speech. Before the Civil Rights movement.

Maybe Spike Lee should be teaching his children about Rebecca Lee Crumpler.

Hattie won the award but she couldn't attend and accept her award because blacks were not allowed
