The NY Post ran an excellent editorial a couple days ago about the brouhaha over the exclusively white Oscar nominees for best actor, best actress, best supporting actor, best supporting actress, and best director.
Mostly, they pointed out Hollywood's hypocrisy in criticizing everyone else for their "racism," but then allowing this instance of "racism" to slip through.
My first thought when I heard about this was that Hollywood will make up for its slip by nominating at least two or three black actors next year, whether or not they are deserving.
Almost just as surely, there will still be zero Hispanic or Asian nominees for any of the acting awards. (And by "Hispanic," I mean, of Amerindian or Mestizo descent, like the vast majority of Hispanics, not someone with a Spanish surname who looks like Antonio Banderas.)
Hollywood is extremely uncomfortable not including blacks. Just as they are extremely comfortable ignoring Hispanics and Asians.
