    I’ve never understood this issue. I haven’t watched the Oscars in several years or, for that matter, the golden globes some years. Nor do I go to movies where I’m not depicted favorably or not at all (and I really wanted to see Moses), and I don’t watch television shows where there are no minorities in major parts or where they are portrayed in a negative way. why would anyone spend their money on or support these kind of programs, and why would we have to be told not to support them. I use my money to support my issues. honestly, I would never go to see Straight Out Of Compton, but I did buy a ticket.

    Although I don’t usually watch the Oscars, this year I will not only watch it live, I’ll probably DVR it and watch it twice. All you need to do is get The Reverend Al Sharpton involved in something and I’m going to do the opposite.

    This whole “boycott-the-Oscars” thing is so trivial. This is what happens when you stop wanting equal opportunity, and start wanting equal results. Freedom to pursue happiness means perhaps you don’t get what you want. Should they now have “set asides” for blacks? For gays? And of course we’ll need something for women who act and/or direct. Why not just have the Oscars, followed by the Black Oscars? Obviously I’m being facetious, but you get my point. Hollywood is one of the most liberal joints in the nation, and if they don’t nominate you then perhaps you should look for another reason besides race.
