Remember the time you could watch a movie and not worry about race? It seems like just yesterday, okay more like seven years if you want to be picky. A movie was either good or bad, not black or white. But now after 88 years the Oscars are suddenly too white for some. Most of this faux outrage is coming from black liberals, such as Jada Pinkett Smith and Spike Lee. Of course, these same liberals don't mention how many traditional white characters, such as Annie, Cinderella, and Nick Fury, have been recast as black roles. You know, it's a sad state of affairs when the first thing they automatically think about is race. That's not making progress in my book, that's taking several steps backwards.

Let's face it, most of the movies up for nomination this year haven't' been that great. And movies like Ride Along 2 are not exactly Oscar material. So let's think about this. Are we supposed to nominate movies based upon it's racial makeup now? What happened to little things like, oh merit? What happens when there are not enough Latins or Asians in a movie? Where does it end? What's next? Are gays going to complain the "Oscars so straight" or are midgets going to complain the "Oscars so tall" (sorry little people). Yes I'm being silly, but this whole thing is silly.

When the United States is upwards 70% white, give or take, we naturally should expect movies to represent those demographics. If I were in India, I would naturally expect the movies made there to feature predominantly Asian actors and actresses, because that's the demographics of that country. I like to go to watch movies to get away from it all. What I don't want is for movies to feel that have to have a certain ethnic makeup just to appease the social justice warriors.

Good post! I'm sorry I'm late reading it!

Personally, I think the Oscars are too thin. Where are the fatties?

Anyway, you are right. It was a mere decade ago that most people never gave any thought to race. Enter Barack Obama, who has managed to set racial tensions back nearly 100 years.

It's funny JG, I said the "Oscars so straight" as tongue and cheek but sure enough Ian McKellen comes out saying there's not enough gay people represented in the film industry. You can't make this up. Gay people are even a smaller minority than black people. I'd say they are perfectly represented. There will always be something to nitpick about, and some people make it there life's ambition to do just that. I do put the blame squarely on Obama for helping to foster racial tensions, this stuff was pretty much extinct before he came to office. The fish rots from the head down.
