Whoopi Goldberg Says the Oscars 'Can't Be That Racist'

Whoopi Goldberg is speaking out about the Oscar diversity controversy and has some surprising things to say.

During Monday’s (January 25) episode of The View, the 60-year-old actress explained that she didn’t think the Academy was to blame for the lack of nominations for diverse actors.

“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.”

    “You in DANGER GIRL!”

    She should have been awarded more Imo but alas I do feel Whoopi though the academy isn’t the issue it’s the business not allowing more different voices.

    Spike Lee also talked about this recently and many years ago. It doesn’t start with the Academy. It’s a matter of who can greenlight a film. Can’t vote for what doesn’t get made.
