I find it almost laughable that there is a big flap over the fact that the Oscars -- for the second year in a row -- didn't nominate a single Black person to win their coveted award. It's not laughable that a Black didn't get nominated, but that Hollywood -- the most liberal bastion of Democratic ideals and the strongest supporters of Democratic candidates -- once again displays its rampant liberal hypocrisy.
When Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama take money from Hollywood, they seem to turn a blind eye to the fact that it consistently pays male actors more than female actors, or that there are few female directors, or as mentioned above, that the predominately white Academy doesn't recognize any Blacks worthy of being nominated. It must be difficult to rise to those lily-white standards.
