Will Smith and Jada boycott racist Oscars
« on: January 21, 2016, 11:28:57 AM »
Won't attend Oscars over the "issue" with too many white nominees... Or so I've heard

Is he joking or is he, despite all his success, just as self-victimizing as some poor minority sob?

I don't think he was even nominated or invited.  I guess I'm going to not go to the Playboy mansion this weekend.

Somehow, I think they would find something else wrong. The statuette looks too caucasian et cetera.

Let's briefly review the amazing performances of black actors in Hollywood in 2015.

First and most importantly, Denzel Washington took the year off. So that explains that.

Morgan Freeman did the voiceover in Ted 2, and starred in the straight to video action films Last Knights and Momentum. Fail.

Will Smith as an African doctor falsely credited (in the movie) with discovering CTS in football players. Will butchered the accent and had the most obvious Oscar-bait soliloquy in film history. Fail.

Michael Jordan played the role of a boxer who doesn't really have to overcome any handicaps or speech impediments in his quest for the title. While blacks are griping that Stallone got a nomination and Jordan didn't, Stallone is receiving a sympathy nomination for his 40 years of playing the same retard that he created for himself. Besides, most Academy members saw the name Michael Jordan and wondered when they made a Space Jam sequel.

Forrest Whitaker kept an eye out for Oscar roles but couldn't find anything this year.

Jamie Foxx was too busy staging rescues to take on a starring role after deciding he didn't want to spend two hours being called a Ni66er in another Tarantino movie.

Samuel Jackson sat in a cabin and got called a Ni66er for two hours while spending the final thirty minutes calling Jennifer Jason Leigh a Bitch. He also overacted as Nick Fury in Avengers. Fail.

Don Cheadle appeared in Avengers, failing to free any Rwandans or otherwise cause an impact. Fail.

Anthony Mackie appeared in Avengers as Falcon and also got beat up by the wimpiest superhero ever Ant-Man for which Paul Rudd was also overlooked as an Oscar nominee.

Finally, all seventeen of the Wayans Bros missed out on their usual Oscar nods by failing to make a horribly unfunny satire the entire Year.

So HeBrews won't attend the racist Oscars, leaving all those racist white folk with a big party for themselves with no HeBrews in attendance?  Racist white folk must be thrilled.  Why HeBrews give white racist folk what they want?

Wouldn't it be a clear case of reverse racism to nominate people just for their skin type?

Or would Jada like to see a category for blacks, whites, asians, mixed etc..?

To be clear, Reverse Racism means Not racist.  Racism is defined as:

"the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races."

Reverse would mean you're not.

Well, I figure there will be some backlash and no white folks go to the BET awards.

Well, I don't think that is their position. I don't think they are asserting they should be nominated because of their skin color. They are asserting that despite good performances, they are being overlooked on purpose because of their skin color, i.e., not given fair treatment. I assume if they felt like they were getting a fair, honest look, then they wouldnt mind not being nominated.

In the last 20 years blacks have won 12.5% of awarded oscars

They make up ~13% of the population

maybe they should pay more attention to raising their kids instead of invisible racism
