    Then have them give three or four Oscars to Kevin Hart.

    He's such a bad actor/comedian that even mainstream blacks would stop bitching about this non-issue.

    I'm liberal and this kerfuffle seems stupid to me.

    If there's a place for change it's at the studios, not a nonexistent "academy".

    Most of the "Academy" is white dudes over 60.

    Their voting and noms have never reflected what cinema is noteworthy for the audience.

    How about letting the best actors win? If a black actor did good reward him. If a white actor did good, reward him. Race shouldn't be the criteria for this crap.

    Not enough black guys win NASCAR events. The white people should stop driving so damn fast so the world can change for the better.

    10929078_10153008056828996_1055261949846195297_n.jpg FFS... Why isn't he asking his community to make quality films? Most of the movies pander to lowest common denominator/most gross per screen. There used to be Spike Lee who at least tried even though he was an angry racist, now I can only think of Tyler Perry.

    Kevin hart should have won best actor and best film for soul plane all those years ago. It makes godfather look like billy Madison.

    Blacks want to be given, not to earn. It's just that simple. You don't see blacks in the corners with Mexicans in 20 degree weather trying to get a day long roofing job. And yet their unemployment rate is monstrous. They are lazy except for right end of the bell curve blacks, but that's only a small portion of them.

    Obama is committed to destroying anything White & Christian, or Black conservatives, who don't follow his ideology.

    No there isn't. They don't make movies to satisfy diversity requirements. They make movies to make money. Diversity is just an advertising campaign.

    Maybe they're looking into a new category: Best Performance by a Token.

    That'll shut the moolies up for about 10 minutes until the find something else to complain about.

    A black guy has won Pimp of the Year at the Players Ball 13 yrs in a row now, I demand the organizers of this event to layout their plans for diversity.

    I like that quote, but if he would have said, "...make your own damn pie," I would have loved it.
