Default Is Hollywood the next Ferguson ?

Just wondering if Mr Sharpton intends to ask Soros to finance another set of riots....

"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."

I dont like to just throw things out there without any accreditation thus this will validate my Soros comment....

"Theres a solitary man at the financial center of the Ferguson protest movement. No, its not victim Michael Brown or Officer Darren Wilson. Its not even the Rev. Al Sharpton, despite his ubiquitous campaign on TV and the streets.

Rather, its liberal billionaire George Soros, who has built a business empire that dominates across the ocean in Europe while forging a political machine powered by nonprofit foundations that impacts American politics and policy, not unlike what he did with MoveOn.org.

Mr. Soros spurred the Ferguson protest movement through years of funding and mobilizing groups across the U.S., according to interviews with key players and financial records reviewed by The Washington Times.

When Al opens his mouth, all that comes out is "blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, whitey has wronged us again".

How about quit being a cheat and paying your back taxes, Al?

How quickly we forget Sacheen Littlefeather at the 1973 Oscars:



Hello. My name is Sacheen Littlefeather. I'm Apache and I am president of the National Native American Affirmative Image Committee. I'm representing Marlon Brando this evening and he has asked me to tell you in a very long speech, which I cannot share with you presently because of time but I will be glad to share with the press afterwards, that he very regretfully cannot accept this very generous award. And the reasons for this being are the treatment of American Indians today by the film industry excuse me and on television in movie reruns, and also with recent happenings at Wounded Knee. I beg at this time that I have not intruded upon this evening and that we will in the future, our hearts and our understandings will meet with love and generosity. Thank you on behalf of Marlon Brando.

Well, Al, some folks might say that white men are underrepresented in the NBA and something must be done about it!


BTW, where is the IRS when we need it? Doesn't our pal, Al, owe over $4.5 million in unpaid taxes?

Give the IRS time. They'll get their nickel plus some from the not so Rev. Sharpton. It really is a shame that some truly buy into his drivel. For others, it is an excuse to behave badly. I think for the majority, he is over the top but has just enough truth in his rhetoric to get people to act, usually I appropriately. To me, he is just an obscenity I choose to ignore.

I can't understand why Television commercials have 95% African Americans in them when they are only 13% of the population. Any one have a answer?

I don't know anyone who actually takes Sharpton serious. He is a total blowhard !
So sick of all the Black Racism.... Refuse to refer to Sharpton as Reverend. I wouldn't mind the zelliots in Hollywood taking some crap though.

Now where did I put my BP pills.

classic racist with no qualifications, breaking the laws of the land, who is in the publics eye ONLY because the media and select other activists glorify his position by allowing him as a spokesman for race relations.

He is a biggoted race and hate monger.....nothing more!

Au Contraire Bill de Blasio has given Sharpton a seat at his right hand
and followed his instruction regarding NYC policing . We all know how that worked out

If there are 10 people in a commercial and one is black then 100% of commercials have a black person. I challenge your assertion that 95% of commercials have a black person and ask you to produce some evidence for your observation, or perhaps you are watching with an eye to be offended by all the black faces? Perhaps you could keep some data and post it here later today. Separate the appearance into major vs minor actor and tell us how many black, how many white, how many other or couldn't tell. And what station you are watching.
