Sharpton says Oscars are too white. Is NBA too black?

Liberals may be terrible at handling the economy or protecting our nation, but they sure are entertaining. The latest side-splitter comes from the White House official court jester, Al Sharpton.

As the Washington Times reports, Reverand Al “announced he was holding an “emergency meeting” to discuss Hollywood’s all-white list of Oscar nominees and talk about possible action against the Academy Awards’ powers-who-be.”

“The movie industry is like the Rocky Mountains,” he said in a statement reported by Business Insider. “The higher you get, the whiter it gets. … I have called an emergency meeting early next week in Hollywood with the task force to discuss possible action around the Academy Awards.”

Now bear in mind this is only the second time in the last 20 years that only white folks were nominated for best actor, actress or director Oscars, so it’s not like there’s a continuing pattern of racism.

But I’ll tell you where there IS a clear pattern of racism. It’s in the NFL!
I did a quick review of the starting line-ups for the four playoff teams (Seahawks, Packers, Colts and Patriots) and 65 percent of those players are black. I’d say that’s a little lop-sided, wouldn’t you — considering blacks make up only around 14 percent of the U.S. population.

And don’t get me started on the racism in the NBA!

If you want to talk about no diversity in honoring excellence, look at the recipients of the Most Valuable Player awards over the last 58 years.

It’s shocking! Seventy-eight percent of all MVPs in history have been black! Boy, I’d say the NBA is way too black. We ought to hold an emergency meeting to discuss possible action against the NBA, right Al? I mean it’s simply not FAIR.

In the NBA, it’s like outer space Al — the higher you get, the darker it gets.

    • And BET – Black Entertainment TV, what about that? If White folks tried to have a White Entertainment TV, the libs would go insane. Or how about a White magazine to counter Jett, or the Congressional White Caucus or Miss White America?

  4. I am actually finding this extremely amusing.

    Leftists fighting against other leftists. Though I don’t see Race Pimps getting far fighting against the the overwhelming power and money in Hollywood.

  5. We must understand that this is sharptons livelihood we are talking about, he makes his money by extorting industrys and corporations. He started out by being a conmmunity organizer just like his son (obama) , then he discovered that he could make more money by preying on liberals white guilt and has made quite a living doing that . His most sucessful extortion job was MSNBC who wound up giving him a show of his own, can you believe that , a man that can barely speak the english language getting a show of his own. Now he is his son’s most trusted adviser. I must admit America is the place to be if you want to succeed in life , no wonder people from all over the world want to come here.

Oh marshmallows & some bread is “white”. Turkey & chicken have “white” breast meat & washing machines & detergents have a “white” settings. No more white paint or crayons.

        • Everyone thinks they have to answer every insult or it will be accepted as truth. Muslims, loyal to their faith, foolishly refuse to join into actively condemning the crazies. Chose instead to make excuses. Blacks refuse to actively condemn gangs/murders/”proud” absent fathers and instead, make excuses out of misguided loyalty. All the lies in the world will not hide the truth. Conservative blacks understand that NOTHING will improve until these problems are embraced, and fought by blacks. Goal: match white crime rates. Then we can go forward together.

  25. Your opening line is more ridiculous than anything Al Sharpton has ever done. “Liberals may be terrible at handling the economy or protecting our nation, but they sure are entertaining.” Hmmm.. Bush and a stacked congress and senate during is destruction of our economy, debt like we’ve never seen, bankruptcies, investment banks falling apart, Part D debt production, “homeland security,” 9/11 during Bushes watch? Come one man. You lose all credibility with your statement because the facts show just the opposite..but keep misleading others if you like. We know what the bible says about liars.

    Reply
    • rcbarron. We know what the Koran has said about liars. Any lie is a good lie when it benefits Islam. No wonder so many Liberals are turning Muslim. Of course it could be because Muslims can have sex with 9 yos, beat their wives to death with the full approval of HER family and buy sex slaves and still get change back from the $20…..When Kennedy entered the White House, 3 out of every 4 Black babies were born in wedlock. After years of “Liberal help” only 1 in 4 are born in wedlock today. Thanks to Liberal conditioning, a lower percentage of black kids are aiming for professional jobs than in 1960 even though almost 50 years of AA laws have opened the doors to the unqualified. The AA laws that were allegedly made to help Blacks “Level the playing field” have mostly gone to White women instead.

      Reply
      • Mark, I don’t know if I should laugh hysterically and roll on the floor or cry a river over your malarkey. Before Kennedy, black people couldn’t even vote! In the south, against the Supreme Court rulings, they couldn’t even eat in the same restaurants, go to school, walk down the street or live freely in any form until the late 60’s and early 70’s! Now, “After Kennedy” and LBJ they are integrated, skilled earners, professionals, top earners in entertainment, very rich, freely travel, freely vote (when their voting is not being blocked by republicans) and have a MUCH better life all the way around. Tens of millions are middle class or better and in many cities a large majority of our black citizens are doing quit well, still against odds from bigots in this country. Have they still been marginalized? Yes, absolutely and your spillage is more of the same that seeks to prey on the “least of these” and mock them and the leaders that have worked against great odds to better their condition. If the playing field has not been leveled some then how do you explain the clear betterment of the entire community? How do you explain a Black President? Yes, there are still troubles and it’s mostly due to a lack of access and background to give them an equal footing. There is still a lot to be done and hearts and minds of some people to be changed. But they are MUCH better off, and you should salute the bravery of those that fought for the equal rights they always deserved in this great country. So you go on and think what you think, but no amount of blabber will change the results they both earned and deserved as a result of attempts to ease their burdens and provide them the equality this country calls us to provide all.

  27. Blacks always bring up the KKK to justify their race killings. Yet the last official KKK lynching was in 1981. The Democrat founded KKK. The official lynching records from the Tuskegee Institute show that Babe Ruth was still playing baseball when the last year that had double figured lynchings occurred. Tens of thousands of Whites killed by Blacks in premeditated racial killings since then but they don’t matter. only “Black lives matter”.
