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
There is FAR too much black privilege in this country.
Al and Barry Soetore will say we need affirmative action in Hollywood. We will call it "The Appeasement Award for Victims". TAAV award.
I love to comment, and hopeful put into "history" what I think about this Fraud and the leadership of the black community. first 'black community', (HINT)....Try listening to Thomas Sowell. Second The Fraud...."You poor Thing". how sad a big mouth with no brains.
Al Sharpton is nothing more than a 'race baiter'. He will always look for something to whine about! What a POS!
I am upset that whites are not fully represented and are not put up for awards at the BET awards ceremonies! such discrimination against whites that I've ever seen!
Fag-Bullwood (The Leftest) created this jerk and now they're the target. It will never stop. The roosters coming home to Hollywood to roost. So ironic that now the monster they created is now attacking the radicals in Fag-Bull-Sickwood, as it were. Go get em Al racist, do what you do best. I say, ' Put a freaken round in it! '
sharpton, one of the most ignorant blacks to walk the Earth! And, he's an adviser for the POS in the rainbow house! Call me a radical but, both should to be executed! along with a few others!
