“The issue is not the Academy…Even if you fill the Academy with black and Latino and Asian members, if there’s no one on the screen to vote for, you’re not going to get the outcome that you want,” Whoopi explained.

She added, “I won once, so it can’t be that racist. I’ve been black the whole time.”
