    Oscar Boycott by Black Actors

    What is your opinion of the boycott of the Oscars by black actors?


    For me, I don't get it. Why does a black HAVE to be included? Maybe there just was not any that were worthy of a nomination this year.

    It just makes me nuts that just because someone is black that they should be nominated. A strong and Oscar worthy performance should get you nominated. NOT THE COLOR OF YOUR SKIN

    And the "I didn't do shit, I'm just black Oscar goes to" ........ To satisfy the PC pussies the Academy should give everyone a "Participation Oscar."


    As an aside, currently the statuettes are all one color. A definite lack of diversity.

    If they would choose non-stereotyped roles perhaps they'd do better.

    I believe when they asked Whoopie for her comment on it she replied, "I have one"...
