If you have been living under a rock for the past few days, you may not have known that last night was the Academy Awards. The night where all the snotty and entitled elite gathers together to give each other awards. I can honestly say I have not watched the Oscars since 2003 and I’m happy for that. Because now this once prestigious ceremony has just transformed into just another tentacle for the bleeding hearts heart liberals to spew their ridiculous rhetoric.
The talking heads in the media are fawning over themselves that the Oscars just “made history.” What history did the make last night? They awarded a record number of awards to black stars and other diverse groups.
Wow, I thought that the Academy Awards was to honor those who had superior performances in the film industry, but I guess I was wrong on that notion. Apparently, the Oscars has become another victim of Affirmative Action.
While I am all for people to be recognized for a job well done, this is becoming too much. For instance, the movie that won Best Picture last night was titled “Moonlight,” which is a coming-of-age drama about a young, gay black man in a rough Miami neighborhood.
For some out there this sounds like a movie you could watch on the Lifetime channel, but for liberals, this is a testament to how far we have come. The left has turned an award show into another politically correct statement that awards people based on color rather than merit.
Trust me when I say that I am not at all upset for any of the white actors that were looked over. These people allowed this to happen by not advocating for their craft, but rather for what is popular. If they truly wanted to be taken seriously for their work, they would be pushing back against this racist agenda instead of embracing it.
