I agree that black actors should not be excluded from receiving Oscar awards because of their skin color, but it’s hard to feel sorry for some of the wealthiest people in America, living in the most up-scale, gated communities in the world, who may also have BET awards on their fancy mantels at home, who lack an award that they feel they should have, based on their skin color. And just maybe their lack of an Oscar is not based on skin color at all, but rather on acting ability and box office draw. I’m just saying.
I have no doubt that Hollywood and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences may occasionally make decisions based on race when voting for acting awards (after all, Hollywood is full of two-faced, liberal people), but are we really expected to feel sorry for these wealthy swells, even the ones with dark skins, just because they don’t get an award in addition to their enormous salaries and their world-wide celebrity status? At a time when Hollywood’s chosen president, Barack Insane Obama, is destroying jobs, ruining healthcare, issuing regulations that are anti-business, “fundamentally transforming America”, exposing America to terrorist attacks and causing enormous jobless statistics that negatively impact the average American wage earner (and joblessness most negatively impacts young black people looking for jobs that no longer exist, thanks to Obama), it’s hard to feel sorry for multi-millionaires when they feel slighted.
The Hollywood wealthy who don’t like the way they are being treated should get into their Rolls and Bentley limos and move to a place that will treat them better. Good luck on finding such a place, because aside from Hollywood you’ll never be able to find a job that pays as well as you currently are.
