Re: Honorary Oscars

Probably the problem with this board it’s that is not diverse enough. Awardsworthy might be filled with kids but at least the level of representation of several cultural backgrounds and from different parts of the world is high enough that there is no issues about inclusivity and sharing different ...

Re: Honorary Oscars

Let me tell you something about Tyler Perry. That guy used to be such a joke. He made what I have heard are awful movies. I've never seen one of them. But they were perceived as a joke within the collective unconscious of -- let's be honest -- white audiences. That guy has a machine in Atlanta, Geo...

Re: Honorary Oscars

Look, I realize that being called out for racism can be a jarring thing. It’s not a matter of some people being racist and others not. All of us—certainly including me—have internalized racism. It’s impossible for us not to in a world long marked by white dominance and colonialism. It impacts our p...

Re: Honorary Oscars

Like, seriously, it's all the time. This isn't a once in a while thing. I guess I make these comments because each year it is repeated by these different organizations. I wish it would be a once in a while thing too so I can finally start believing that their choices are made with actual diversity ...

Re: Honorary Oscars

He thinks that the push for diversity in the Academy and generally the conversation being had in the United States is ridiculous. No it is NOT ridiculous at all. Diversity is good and most welcome. But with a lot of recent choices made by the Academy it is obvious that they are trying too hard just...

Re: Honorary Oscars

The fact of the matter is that The Original BJ absolutely did leave the Board because of Reza. I’m glad someone is finally stating that out loud. And it wasn’t just his racism, which tends to come out even more frequently these days, but also his quite overt, hostile homophobia. This is the first I...

Re: Honorary Oscars

mlrg, what Reza said, is typical of the white-wing punditry who seem to think that all instances of self-regulation or other commitments to equity are "cancel culture," which is a fancy buzz word that means they don't like being held accountable for their words or actions. The Academy has...

Re: Honorary Oscars

I’ve read Reza’s posts long enough to know that he certainly expresses racist views. Your recent relentless attacks on Chadwick Bozeman make me suspicious of you as well, Mirg, and your quick defense of Reza rather confirms it. I’ve made a commitment to be actively anti-racist and will call it when...
