"The movie industry is like the Rocky Mountains, the higher you get, the whiter it gets," Al Sharpton said in a statement released lthis afternoon.

"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 movie about Martin Luther King activities in Selma, Alabma , Selma, was was nominated for 'Best Picture,'

  1. Clever illustration here:

    I was about to declare that the Heisman Trophies ought to be black but interestingly enough they shouldn't. I pay attention to college football but rarely watch a movie. Why are all the Oscars white?

    1. "Why are all the Oscars white?"

      They aren't. You might remember the affirmative action Oscar given to Cuba Gooding Jr for his mediocre performance in the mediocre film "Boyz in the Hood"

      Probably, Sharpton would stifle himself if someone gave him a few bucks to shut up about the Oscars.
