Latinos already protesting the Oscars

The day before the Oscars, under darkening skies, more than a hundred Latinos demonstrated in Hollywood today to protest the “exclusion” of Hispanics from mainstream motion pictures.

It was their second protest in the weeks leading up to the Academy Awards, and organizers say that because the studios aren’t listening to their complaint, one of them may be singled out for a nationwide boycott.

“Because they have not been willing to talk to us, our next step will be to see which of the six major studios we will boycott nationwide,” Alex Nogales, president and CEO of the National Hispanic Media Coalition, told Deadline.

Behind him, the protesters called out each of the six studios by name, chanting “Oscars so white, enough is enough.”

Honestly, frick Hollywood! Screw all the males and whites who populate it! 100% exclude any of them for winning any awards, securing any lead roles, or getting finances for any films. Go ahead and skip to the end of the bull shite their pushing. I'd love to see the shitstorm that that would cause.

Guillermo del Toro, Alfonso Cuaron, and Alejandro Innaritu are three of the best directors working today and all have been nominated in the recent years.

I just want to know what psychiatric diagnosis goes along with a group of people that have to hold awards ceremonies for themselves every few weeks.

I can't wait until giving an Oscar to a white person is automatically racist

Depends on the number of awards presented on TV x 2 for the award presenters.

Talking to my mother today, I wondered when we would start hearing all of the complaining from the Hispanics since they are actually the largest minority.
