Because racism is insidious and Hollywood is a well documented, intrinsically racist industry that has a real problem with treating People of Color as a box to be checked. If there wasn’t a history of actors of color struggling so hard to get any recognition while many white actors are such obvious, and frequently undeserving, award bait it would be a different conversation. I have no doubt that racism is involved because it is always involved. Just like nepotism and elitism are always involved.

Every year it gets harder and harder to take the Oscars seriously. 7 2 Link to comment
