I don't believe there's a better example of today's spoiled Black ethnic class, that ultimate sense of "victimhood", than Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett Smith's declaration this week that they'll boycott the Oscars because Blacks aren't represented in the major award categories.
Stop and think about that. Blacks make up 12% of the population but really believe they are deserving of the majority of awards....simply because of the color of their skin! Can you imagine that? In the very week that we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, who advocated for NOT judging people by the color of their skin, folks like Spike Lee and Pinkett Smith believer they deserve MORE awards because of the color of their skin!
One wants to look back at the last decade to see the preponderance of Blacks who have captured major acting and grammy awards...the numbers are astounding! But that's not enough! They want all the awards because, well, because they are Black! And who could possibly argue that we have Black Divas and Black rap artists who have reaped untold billions in "filthy lucre" (who, by the way, aren't donating any of their billions to the impoverished Black!...witness Beyonce's spending a million bucks for a "birthing suite"..money that have gone to Black poverty programs.
Spike Lee and Pinkett Smith and others of their ilk are the ultimate "brat"...the kid in the supermarket pouting cause mom won't buy that sugary cereal, or the multipack of chocolate candy...and decide to sit down in the middle of the aisle and pout and scream till their lungs burst.
I'm sorry...fuckem! I get weary of America's culturally spoiled..of all races...but I believe we've reached a damned sorry state when we demand awards simply based on the color of one's skin.
