Rev. Al Sharpton talks about his plans to boycott this year’s Oscars in light of the lack of diversity.
“Out of 20 slots you’re going to tell me that no one is worthy of an nomination? We need to tune out. We need to watch something else that night. If the ratings go down, the advertisers will say I’m not paying for this,” Sharpton said.
Is Cheryl Boone Issacs to blame?
“She has very little power. It’s not about the talent. Its about the structure. Hollywood is so liberal and progressive until you get to where they live. No blacks can greenlight a film in 2015 and that’s a disgrace.”
