Is Hollywood overwhelmingly left leaning? Of course it is. And people have been complaining for weeks about #OscarsSoWhite. Some decided to boycott. Of course, most who were boycotting weren’t up for an award in the first place. People wondered if Chris Rock would take on the “racism” as the host. Yes, he did
(Breitbart) Comedian Chris Rock opened the 88th Academy Awards on Sunday by commenting on the #OscarsSoWhite controversy.
“Man, I counted at least 15 black people in that montage!” he said in reference to this year’s lack of diversity among acting nominees. “You realize if they nominated hosts, I wouldn’t even get this job!” (snip)
Rock also joked the Academy should create “black categories,” noting: “You already do it with men and women, think about it. There’s no real reason to have a men and a women category in acting. It’s not track and field, you don’t have to separate them.”
Well, maybe we should consider that Blacks already have numerous awards (that’s a short list) that are open ONLY to Black people. Of course, somehow, these Black actors and actresses are “heroes“.
Rock later introduced the evening’s first presenters, saying, “You want diversity? We got diversity. Please welcome Emily Blunt and somebody whiter, Charlize Theron.”
Now, consider, if Rock was white and the presenters where Black, and he said “somebody blacker”, would that have been racist? You know that the line would have created a firestorm. So would many of his other lines if they went the other way. But, hey, these lefties at the Oscars were laughing about being called racists. Are they racists? Good question. But, it is amusing that they are basically accusing themselves of being racists. But, Rock is being slammed by Black activists for one line
The joke: “Why are we protesting this Oscars? It’s the 88th Academy Awards, which means this ‘no black nominees’ thing happened at least 71 other times. You got to figure that it happened in the 50s, in the 60s. One of those years, Sidney [Poitier] didn’t put out a movie. I’m sure there were no black nominees some of those years, say ‘62’ or ‘63. Black people did not protest. Why? Because we had real things to protest at the time. We were too busy being raped and lynched to care about who won best cinematographer. When your grandmother’s swinging from a tree, it’s really hard to care about best documentary foregin short.”
It’s the line about “real things to protest” that has gotten people Offended.
Then we had Sheriff Joe Biden, who created massive traffic problems when he showed up at the Oscars
(Breitbart) Vice President Joe Biden gave a brief speech in support of victims of sexual violence while introducing Lady Gaga at the Academy Awards on Sunday night.
“Too many women and men… are still victims of sexual abuse,” Joe Biden said, after receiving a raucous standing ovation.
Biden urged the Oscars audience and viewers watching at home to “take the pledge, a pledge that says, ‘I will intervene in situations where consent cannot or has not been given.’”
Let’s see: racism in Hollywood. Sexual assault in Hollywood and college campuses. Why are liberals so racist and sexual assaulty?
