Cartoon: Whitewash

There was immediate criticism when this year’s Oscar nominations came out and were revealed to be as white as the Northeast after last weekend’s blizzard. Defenders of the Academy used these and many more techniques in their attempts to refute the criticism, most famously with Charlotte Rampling’s and Julie Delpy’s uniformed remarks.
I don’t receive screeners, so I’ll have to wait until most of the nominated films get dumped onto Netflix before I can definitively say this year’s nomination process was biased. But if the Academy’s 88 years of nominations are any indication, that’s a safe bet.

and still there is denial of White privilege, bigotry, or racial discrimination they want you to believe them instead of your lying eyes and ears they want you to react like their base turn your head and say "okay".
