Big shoutout to the “why does everything have to be about race?” crowd last night. You guys are the real heroes.
Chris Rock? A+. Couldn’t have picked a better guy to give that monologue last night. Hilarious, provocative, poignant, whatever journalistic word you want to use to describe it. He was awesome. Anyway…
BIG shoutout to all the “why does everything have to be about race?” crowd.
To all the “black people are more represented in the Oscars than the general population” truthers. And the “what about Hispanic and Asian people, what about them?” crusaders who apparently now want “everyone, not just black people” to have a fair shot. And of course the “isn’t this supposed to be a celebration of the movies?” crowd.
You guys are the real heroes. Thank you for all your hard work last night and this morning. Thank you for your service.
While others might just shut the fuck up and let Chris Rock say his piece on some shit that is wildly prevalent in the world, you took it upon yourself to throw your two cents in.
Why? I don’t really know. To be honest, I don’t have a fucking clue.
I don’t get how you can complain that an awards show that always sucks and is always boring and always underwhelming decided to go with a few jokes that weren’t the same old self-applauding hollywood shit.
I don’t get how someone who absolutely doesn’t really care about celebrity life is now offended that a few jokes about race have overshadowed the usually celebrity self-aggrandizing of awards shows.
I don’t get how you can sit there with a straight face and champion Hispanic and Asian actors and the lack of roles for them as some kind of counterpoint to #OscarsSoWhite
I don’t get how you can be mad that black people are saying “we’d like a few more opportunities for acting roles”
And I really don’t get how you can see Chris Rock call the “champions of diversity” in hollywood out for not actually doing anything about diversity and see them squirm and still think “why does everything have to be about race?”
But hey, I guess that’s why I’m not a hero. I guess I’m not brave enough to take a stand like the diversity truthers out there. Thank you for all that you do guys. You’re all the biggest losers in the world, but you’re still heroes.
P.S. If you think Chris Rock went “too far” with the lynching jokes you need to kill yourself right now.
