Direct from the town of tinsel that started it all. Obsequious to the point of being disgusting! The 88th annual Oscars awards . . .WITH NO BLACKS! Oh wait a minute, what are all those black faces doing in front the of the camera? What is is this? Another national ad for home insurance or floor cleaner? There’s blacks everywhere onstage, off stage, selling cookies to the audience dressed in outfits that even Hattie McDaniels would have been embarrassed to dress her children in, seventy years ago! But, unfortunately, no black actors up for receiving this year’s Oscars. How shocking! How disgusting! The infamy! The proper quota of blacks to whites to, “Gosh do Asians really count?“, WAS NOT MET! It’s, “Yes we have no black actors, we have no black actors today! We’ve Limeys, and Aussies and Chileans” . . . “and shhhh, a lot of Jews.” After all IT IS Hollywood! But no black actors. We sure got told about it at every opportunity on camera both before and after! I don’t think it will be possible for me to see anyone with African genes as a person first once again for weeks or maybe months after this. But then, who cares? Nobody cares about about the racial majority in the country anymore. Mainly because they don’t care enough about themselves to realize they have been slowly but steadily backed into a label. That specious label is WHITE! And if you are not a blonde bombshell with a leggy figure cut to Hollywood specifications, “Who needs ya!” “Get in that boxcar!”, like all six million of the supposed relatives of the Hollywood ‘hoi polloi‘. Or so that oft published, never miss an opportunity, story seems to go. Hollywood has a penchant these days for directing all of us to the right conclusion about life and the living of it. Even if it turns all the facts and reality upside down on its ear. That is after all what its job has become from the time of your grandfathers and that so called ‘greatest generation’. You know! When the Tuskegee airmen saved America and her allies over Europe single-handedly destroying the Luftwaffe. Redefining common people’s reality into one reality. Just like television news! We all know that in the war movies in the evil WHITE past, it was the black guy who always got killed first! But then, those Hollywood studio executives responsible for making those movies weren’t allowed into the WHITE country clubs either. Go figure! So while all those self-enfranchised middle class black intellectual leaders of the future are feeling ideologically insecure sitting sequestered in a circle within a publicly funded university ‘safe space’ tonight with their mutual complexions turning as irate and red as genetically possible at the infamy that the God given law of Affirmative Action having been scandalously ignored by these bigots, one wonders? The planning of the next disruptive assault upon those downtown centers of outrageous WHITE PRIVILEGE being targeted, all with the tacit cooperation of corrupt city officials, under police protection of course! The deplorable insensitive slight of the assignment of institutional recognition of movie talent no longer being assured by its automatic dispensation of little gold men by this sacred mandate guaranteeing the ongoing recognition of that eternal slight of slavery. The rest of us WHITE oppressors (or some race or another of the supposed 800 million other viewers, who cares!) are punished to an even higher scale of excruciating pain in having to sit through the tedious grim reality of ‘side boob‘, ‘front boob‘, overly fat ass cracks threatening exposure in backless gowns! So now tell me now if that isn’t somehow more institutionally unfair?
Live! The 88th Annual ‘Blackless’ Oscars
