Race-Hustler & Charlatan Al Sharpton Calls for Emergency Meeting to Address ‘All-White’ Oscar Award Nominations and ‘Selma’ Snub
AND IN THE CATEGORY FOR BEST RACE HUSTLER AND SHAKE DOWN ARTIST … AND THE OSCAR GOES TO AL SHARPTON!!!
Now that Ferguson, MO has faded from the media and so has Al Sharpton, chief race hustler and Charlton is on to his next shake down and attention seeking effort. Al Sharpton is criticizing the Oscars for their lack of diversity in selecting nominees and stated the following, “I have called an emergency meeting early next week in Hollywood with the task force to discuss possible action around the Academy Awards.” (VIDEO) HUH? Sharpton stated, “The movie industry is like the Rocky Mountains, the higher you get, the whiter it gets.” Um, could this guy be any more racist in his own comments? I was actually waiting for the obligatory Jew comment, but I guess Sharpton refrained. Just curious, why is it that everything has to be about race with this guy, other than the obvious? Sharpton was peeved because the Academy Awards only nominated the movie ‘Selma’ once. Honestly, who cares. But of course Sharpton has little to support his ridiculous “racist” claims as Selma was nominated for best picture, the top Oscar award.
Wasn’t ‘Hustle and Flow’ already a movie?
The Rev. Al Sharpton was left fuming mad after the Oscars revealed its all-white list of nominees for this year’s Oscar awards on Thursday.
“The movie industry is like the Rocky Mountains, the higher you get, the whiter it gets,” Sharpton quipped in a statement released later in the afternoon.
Sharpton, a critic of the lack of diversity in Hollywood, also announced he was holding an “emergency meeting” next week to address the issue.
“I have called an emergency meeting early next week in Hollywood with the task force to discuss possible action around the Academy Awards,” he said.
The prestigious awards ceremony was widely criticized after its nominees for best actor, best actress, and best director were all white. In the past two decades this has happened only one other time, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
No one says it better than author, attorney, former Ronald Reagan administration official, president of Landmark Legal Foundation and syndicated conservative talk show host Mark Levin when it comes to calling out Al Sharton. As Levin said in responding to Sharpton’s current Oscar shakedown, “Al Sharpton has a very sick demented mind. Everything is about race. Everything is about race. Everyone who disagrees with him is a racist. How did this happen that this man, this putrid insignificant, barely articulate, buffoon of a human being could be on the stage like this all the time? Just muscle his way in. He owes taxes, he’s had court rulings against him, he has been involved in sleazy activities and yet there he is. I’ll tell you how it is. Because he is Barack Obama’s friend. Because Barack Obama brings him into the Oval Office, because Barack Obama promotes him, because he is a Barack Obama surrogate in places like Ferguson and with the NYPD, that’s how. I SAY SCREW ALL OF THEM!!!”
Mark Levin: Al Sharpton criticizes Oscars for “lack of diversity”
When liberals attack liberals … Al Sharpton calls ‘emergency meeting’ over Hollywood’s all-white Oscar list.
Mr. Sharpton gave kudos to the judges for nominating “Selma” for best picture, but then he decried the lack of diversity in the other categories.
“The lack of diversity in today’s Oscar nominations is appalling and while it is good that Selma was nominated for ‘Best Picture,’ it’s ironic that they nominated a story about the racial shutout around voting while there is a racial shutout around the Oscar nominations. With all of the talent in Selma and other black movies this year, it is hard to believe that we have less diversity in the nominations today than in recent history,” he said, Business Insider reported.
