    African-Americans Are Boycotting The Oscars

    I just heard that so many African-Americans are boycotting the Oscars because of racism.

    There is always some bs classified as racism. African American, here. Everything seems to be racism within my community. It's ridiculous.

    I dunno...

    Maybe yes, maybe no. I don't see enough movies that aren't outright trash to know.

    Maybe we need quotas?

    Can't Morgan Freeman get an award, just for sounding like God having a good day, and having a cool earring?

    Morgan should get something for being so very cool at least.

    It's kind of sad and disappointing that the Oscars lack diversity again this year. I'm undecided if I want to watch it again this year.

    Re: African-Americans Are Boycotting The Oscars

    You know I keep hearing its racist yet i've yet to hear why the movies that where chosen don't warrant them and why certain "Black" movies should be included. I want an Oscar to go to the actors in the movie PIXELS it's a piss poor movie but I enjoyed it so they warrant it even if no one else liked it. Isn't that about the same meter used for saying some of the black movies should be placed there?

    Besides the Oscar's is a really dump place to boycott, if the public wants their displeasure shown do it at the theater's. That hits in the pocketbook and might just influence the quality of movies being produced, the subjects being selected and the caliber of actors being used. Or we could claim Will Smith's son deserves an Oscar for his role in that piece of crap movie he stared in with his dad. You know the one no one can recall the name of for the most part because hardly no one saw it.

    I don't know. It seems everything is about racism lately.

    Racism always makes the news because you can interpret anything that goes wrong (and something always goes wrong) as racism, and conflict sells papers...
