    That was funny ” never been invited to the Oscar’s, cause they are racsits”

  • Ariana

    They aren’t racist because they didn’t nominate whiny, undeserving blacks. If the Oscars are ‘racist; then so are the BET and the NAACP awards. The NAACP awards recently only nominated blacks and gave it to black only.Is that not more racist? Giving someone an award because of the color o their skin?

  • Nicola

    I bet you’re one of those who also wonders why there’s no white history month, too.

  • Ariana

    You can’t have it both ways idiot. If you wanna call the Oscars racist, then the BET and the NAACP are more racist. Nomination blacks only and giving awards based on skin color is actually racist.

  • Nicola

    I think you’re sorely mistaken as to which one of us is an idiot. You do realize both were created in response to Hollywood’s refusal to acknowledge the talents and achievements of people of color, correct?

  • Ariana

    Having award shows like BET or NAACP are more racist since they are giving out awards based on skin color. You idiot. You should not be getting an award based on skin color but on talent.

  • EarthCitizenNumberOne

    Ariana, you do realise that you make yourself look stupid by name calling others. When the Oscars are really diverse, then there will be no need for BET and NAACP awards.

    What you are saying is rather like saying that the Paralympics discriminate against able bodied athletes.

  • Ariana

    You can’t compare the Special Olympics with the Regular one and use it as an argument to support why the Oscars are racist but black only award shows aren’t. Not the same thing idiot. The Oscars are diverse if you look closely. When will an Indian or a Asian win a BET or a NAACP award? Those awards are all about giving it to blacks only! Those awards are far more racist then the Oscars! Maybe Black people need to do better work rather then acting in stupid movies like Madea, Ride Along, Nutty Professor and other idiotic movies.
