    I get that everyone has some amount of unconscious biases I would be harder pressed to make the statement that everyone is bigoted but I suppose it could be argued indeed we are?
    The problem liberals are having with the Oscars is that you can't expect white judges to be able to appreciate the subtle nuances that delivery mass appeal of the products they are asked to appraise.

    You wouldn't ask the producers of the Grand Old Opry to host the BET music awards would you?

    I get that we are one nation and should appreciate our entire American heritage diaspora but they don't understand that it's different from person to person based on their cultural experiences. I have a lot of shared cultural experiences with anyone else that was raised in America but don't ask me to appraise the quality of Hip Hop music or a movie about Rich Asians like I'm some sort of expert on the matter able to appreciate all aspects of the story. But if there's ever an accurate movie about growing up anachronistically backwards or pot smoking red necks in the deep south I'm sure I'll give it shockingly high marks.

    So yeah, the Oscars are crippled and won't ever be able to appreciate all the art that gets made from year to year. Maybe they should start a new award show that showcases diversity instead and then snub the **** out of the Academy for a change?

    They already have something like that in the music business. They call it the Soul Train Music Awards and they typically kill each other afterwards.

    Well, that's one way to boost ratings.

    They want the winners to correlate with their agenda.

    Some of King’s books make it hard to tell the time period- it’ll kinda seem like maybe the 1960s, then a character will Google something on their phone. Of course the politics of such a man will be off.

    Yeah, thatís America.

    Study film history, it has always been this way. The difference is, it is minorities trying to do the same backwards ****.
