Black Community Outraged over Oscar Nominations

Black Outrage Selma

The headline of a leading “black news” publication, The Root, screamed “Selma’s Oscar Snub a Complete Injustice.”

While the film about the civil rights movement was nominated for best film, and best song, that wasn’t good enough for activists (RACISTS)  in the black community.

Writer Stephen Crockett lamented, “Two?! Ava DuVernay, who seemingly had a real chance to become the first black woman director to get an Oscar nomination, failed to get a nod, as did actor David Oyelowo, whose performance as the civil rights icon has earned praise from all corners.”

The Hollywood Reporter took the lack of recognition along racial lines a step further with the headline, “Oscars: Acting Nominees All White.”

All nominees were also white as recently in 2011 and 1998.
