Boycott Oscars: Black Millionaires Matter

Spike Lee, Jada Pinkett Smith and other black entertainers in the motion picture industry are considering a boycott of the Academy Awards ceremony. The brothers and sisters feel dissed that none of the black color were nominated for the recently announced awards.So its come to this. Akin to the pleas of the Wizard Of Oz characters who wanted something that wasn't given them at birth they want to change history.They want the impossible. It's another example of black activists complaining about the discipline of the white mans wheel.Could this be the end of the affirmative action movement? The black activists are squaring off against Jewish Agents that actually run Hollywood and some might say run American culture.If blacks are given awards over the stable of white actors that are controlled by Jewish agents then this is very much a bottom line issue as in less money.The calculus of who represents more blacks throws out of whack the cozy relationships with studios that heretofore existed. My bet is on the Jewish Agent. Hopefully "To Kill A Mockingbird " will stop being required reading if nothing else.The 18th century Scottish philosopher David Hume remarked to a friend who recently visited Jamaica and was impressed by the African descendant natives and their command of the English language. Hume replied " Myna birds speak better english but share the intelligence of the African." Part of the reason that black actors aren't nominated for acting is because of their blackness. Not in a racist way but in a physical way.Black doesn't reflect light like white does. Consequently facial emotions are harder to discern.
