In a statement, Sharpton blasted the film industry for what he called its “fraudulent image of progressive and liberal politics and policies,” and said the nominations were a reflection of “the fact that there are few if any blacks with real power in Hollywood.”
“Hollywood is like the Rocky Mountains, the higher up you get the whiter it gets and this year’s Academy Awards will be yet another Rocky Mountain Oscars,” Sharpton said in a statement obtained by the Hollywood Reporter. “Yet again, deserving Black actors and directors were ignored by the Academy — which reinforces the fact that there are few if any Blacks with real power in Hollywood.”
All white Oscar nominations are another example of the lack of diversity in Hollywood. Like the Rocky Mts. The higher u climb the whiter.— Reverend Al Sharpton (@TheRevAl) January 14, 2016
I feel a shake down in the air!
Ain't nobody can pull off that scam like Al "Shakedown" Sharpton!
Deadbeat racist sharplesston. Craw back into your shit-hole, the lower you go, the darker it gets.
Cut off all public assistance in muslim & black neighborhoods, put up a wall around those cites, and then let Plan Parenthood go in there for a couple decades. Let them work for free abortions. That will thin them out. Or shoot them to remove their vote. Although i am pro life, I prefer that than shooting them. Is that too radical? If so, then we will lose. Bottom line, i feel this is our country, they can leave if they don't like our constitution.
The blacks want to be like whites but don't want to work for it. The blacks that do work actually do move up the ladder of success but no one (al cry baby sharphead) wants to talk about THEM!!! Don't get face time on TV talking about the ones who work...RIGHT AL???
You can tell who the racists are when they use a color in their statements. It's like telling who are true Christians when they fail to use profanity.
I wonder where he has been all this time? Hiding from TAX FRAUD and under a rock. Only when something doesn't suit this criminal he has to yell and scream. I can just hear MLK telling him to shut UP!
OMG more whining from this fake tax evader. Enough already.
If Sharpton makes enough trouble for Hollywood, and the Beverly Hills Bolsheviks, how quickly will these folks become Conservatives!
