    Mark Ruffalo May Boycott Oscars, Calls America ‘Rife With White Privilege Racism’

    Ruffalo says he’s considering boycotting the Oscars after the Academy nominated only white men and women for the second year in a row in the 20 acting categories. The thesp, up for his supporting role in “Spotlight,” would be joining the likes of Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith and Spike Lee, who have all announced that they won’t be attending the Feb. 28 ceremony.

    BBC Breakfast’s Charlie Stayt also asked the “Avengers” star what he thinks about the lack of black representation at the Oscars.

    “I totally agree. It isn’t just the Academy Awards,” Ruffalo said. “The entire American system is rife with white privilege racism. It goes into our justice system.”

    “There’s a regressive slide towards separatism, towards racial and religious disharmony, and that’s not the Hollywood that I want to leave behind. That’s not the industry, that’s not the America that I want to leave behind.”

    You're absolutely right Mark. Please, leave Hollywood and the career which you evidently don't feel you earned, and go work at McDonalds. You'll be all cured of your psychosis in about 8-12 hours.

    That is why Mark will not make another movie without AT LEAST 13% of the cast and crew being black, and he will donate all but 1% of his income to black causes.

    I don't even understand the Oscar issue. Who besides Will Smith is even mentioned as someone that "deserved" to be nominated? Do these fucks want us to believe that the mostly LIBERAL Oscar voters sat there and said "Oh I'm not going to vote for this person. They're black."

    There are 6,000 voting members in the Academy -- all of whom must have made significant contributions to their field to even be considered. Their votes are sent to a trusted independent accounting firm, who crunch the numbers by hand to determine who the top vote-getters are in each category.

    These angry, outspoken individuals make it seem like non-whites are being willfully shut out by The Hollywood System. But it is entirely conceivable that a non-white person received 99 votes in a category that required 100 votes in order to be a top finalist.

    Is Mark Ruffalo willing to give up his nomination to the non-white who got the most votes in his category, or would he think that was unfair to him?

    No one cares about Bruce Banner. In the comics I think he stays the Hulk, in the movies we have to see boring Bruce Banners face.
