WHITE-OUT at the Oscars in 2015, first time in 20 years.
Golden Oscar for…
From 3 Chics Commenter eliihass:
“Let’s face it, Hollywood like Donald Trump, likes its “blacks” beholden, cloying, entertaining, clownish, suck-uppy, ass-kissy, not too smart or ever intellectually, physically or in any way threatening – or superior. And if you’re a woman, you’ve got to play demure, that’s a must – but the ante is upped if you can transform yourself into something of a sex object based on their exacting standards – thin, pouty, helpless damsel-ish, propped up boobs big or small, just prop it up and put it out there, affected manner of speech and behavior, cloying and more cloying and sexy enough for them to want to sleep with to meet their dirty sexual interracial fantasies, (but only when no ones looking), but never really good enough to seriously date or marry of course – or to be taken too seriously as an “every niche” actress with superior acting chops, try as you may. Sure, they’ll patronize you, and even trot you out to fill their “black person I know and like” quota, but you’ll never really ever make the cut in their minds.
They’ll sometimes make a token gesture: An “exotic” looking, non-American, Yale-trained, well-pedigreed, non-threatening innocent like Lupita, or a fun, non-threatening, will never be threatening black like Mo’nique or Cuba Gooding – who pretty much fall off the radar once they get the kiss of death that is the random surprise Oscar. And then there’s the pretty one. Acceptable to every race for their mixed good looks. The Halle Berrys who’re also Hollywood-blessed to have a lustful godfather in Warren Beatty who’ll invest his time and energy campaigning to see to it that his good ole boys at the Academy see what he sees in ya. And then there’s Denzel. Good looking and talented, and fortunate to have the lustful support and stamp of approval of white A list actresses like Julia Roberts whose voice for some impossible to understand reason, carries more weight than his in Hollywood.”
THANK YOU, ELIIHASS!
