What About The Green Oscar?

Do people never consider the implicit meaning of campaigns like Oscar So White? There is never a positive alternative associated with complaints that an ethnicity or race or sex is underrepresented. So who are the actors, actresses, screenwriters, and key grips of color who should have been nominated?

Even Black Entertainment Television can do no better than to note that hey, Selma was a movie with black people in it.

Do people not understand the obvious conclusion?

I love basketball. I am white. Whites are underrepresented in basketball. But you will never hear me whine about that. Why bring to everyone’s attention that my race is bad at jumping, running, throwing, and catching?
