Maybe there should be a “Black” Academy Award category

Leftists have been whining about how racist the Academy Awards are, since Oprah’s and Brad Pitt’s movie “Selma” was “snubbed” by the nominating committee. (Apparently being nominated for “Best Picture” is considered a snub – if you’re a racist black person. And apparently last year’s “12 Years a Slave” ‘s win for Best Picture doesn’t count either.)

Perhaps the Academy Award should create special categories for “Best Black Picture,” “Best Black Actor,” and “Best Black Director.” That way, even a mediocre film like “Selma,” which distorts history and that portrays Democrat President Lyndon B. Johnson as an enemy of civil rights (when he was not), can still have a chance at winning something. Because it’s a black film. And a black film, actor or director has to win something every year. Or else you’re racist.

Better yet, having separate Oscar categories for black people, just like having quotas for black people in jobs, government contracts, and universities, will ensure that black people don’t have to meet the standards that other groups do. They can still be assured of reaping the benefits of things that they didn’t earn. They don’t have to earn them, because they’re black.

That’s the message that racists like Al Sharpton, Oprah, the NAACP, the Congressional Black Caucus, and of course President Obama and his black administration members are putting out. Blacks don’t have to compete. They should win just because they’re black.

Sounds racist, doesn’t it? Yes, I thought so too.
