Al Sharpton Blasts ‘Fraudulent’ Progressive Hollywood over All-White Oscar Nominees

The Rev. Al Sharpton ripped Hollywood after the Academy Award nominations were announced Thursday morning, with black actors completely shut out of each of the four top acting categories for a second straight year.

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.”

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.

Al Sharpton is an idiot. he needs to pay his taxes and be prosecuted for the shakedown he has done to corporations or years. His sugar daddy is about to leave office and he is desperate to get some attention. To call him acreverand is an isult to God!

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!

ALERT ALERT

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
