RE: #AffirmativeActionOscars
Just looking at things objectively I don't see any standout films with black actors or directors this year anyways. Creed was ok for the nostalgia factor but it was just another Rocky movie. Stallone and Jordan were good in it but it wasn't anything special. There are quite a few genuinely good black leading men out there but I would not count Will Smith amongst them anyways. Denzel is a legit good actor but he's chosen to do more schlocky action stuff the past few years which is fine. Idris Elba is good too but he's not very prominent or memorable for most audiences.

I didn't see Chi-Raq and probably never will since it's another Spike Lee "joint" ie SJW trash. Spike Lee was also the guy who got all up in Clint Eastwood's shit about not having enough black people in Flags of our Fathers. If you recall Clint did two films during that time Flags of our Fathers which was about the U.S. side of the war and Letters from Iwo Jima entirely from the perspective of the Japanese military on Iwo Jima.

Both were portraying real life events from people who actually lived and fought during that time so inserting token actors into units where there was no integration to begin with would have been fucked up to say the least. Can you imagine random black faces popping up in the tunnels in Iwo Jima? I'm pretty sure the Japanese imperial army did not have someone who looked like Will Smith there.


Spike Lee has always been full of shit and a hypocrite and takes himself way too seriously. I can name a few of his films which actually portrayed various non white and non black races in a pretty bad way. He seems to have no problem with that when it's turned on other people.

Fuck him.
