Last night in Chris Rock’s Oscar introduction speech, he of course attacked the idea of blacks not getting their Affirmative Action share of Oscar awards, while ignoring the fact that no white actors have received any BET awards, yet he called the Oscar awards the “White People’s Choice Awards” even though his personal pay for his appearance last night could pay off the debts of thousands of the police officers across the nation who he defamed with his remarks about the blacks who COPS shot while they were going to the movies. Chis Rock is reported to be worth over 70 million dollars, yet takes advantage of the admitted racism of Hollywood to abuse the police officers who defend him and his property. And did anyone see Leonardo DiCaprio reject his selection of Best Actor? If Mr. DiCaprio was really interested in an equal distribution of black faces among the winners, he would have turned down even his Oscar nomination, let alone the award, and insisted it be given to a black actor (or actress, right? Is Hollywood also being sexist by giving one of its most coveted awards to a man?).
But of course, any Affirmative Action must begin with someone else’s award, not DiCaprio’s. It’s not diversity that is the problem in Hollywood, there are black and Hispanic faces in excess of their representation in the general public. The supposed subject here is specific awards, supposedly given based on merit, that the liberals in Hollywood are so defensive about. Will this require a new Affirmative Action model to be established by the government to oversee an equitable distribution of the awards until a “fair” distribution has been made? I believe not. If the Obama administration was on board for such enforced equality the idiot Joe Biden would have not appeared at last night’s ceremony; he would have strutted to a microphone and righteously and pompously condemned the entire evening’s events. But Joe was there and as a result let the world know that (alleged) racial and sex discrimination are OK with the Oval Office as long as their pals and supporters in Hollywood are the culprits.
Is the supposed racism of our Hollywood stars expanding to the broader United States? I ask this because it’s been reported that the viewing audience last night established an eight-year low. Is America rejecting the selfishness and excesses of Hollywood in general, or did they simply not want to hear what Mr. Rock had to say on the subject? Chris rock has vast wealth and lives in luxury unimaginable to most white and black Americans, yet Hollywood pretends that people with his skin color are being horribly mistreated because they don’t receive Oscars regularly.
I’ll give Mr. Rock one compliment though: he stated in his monologue that in the 50s and 60s blacks had serious things to worry about and try to overcome, so at that time they didn’t have time to protest the Oscar nominations. This realization of the real world where most people live is appreciated and too often forgotten as the exclusive, rich liberals of the east and west coasts try to excuse their excessive wealth by pretending to find some flaw in America that they must tell the world about.
