Alejandro G. Iñárritu and Spike Lee Talk About The Academy's Changes For More Diversity










  • "Well, they had to do something."

  • Congratulates The Academy, but he still ain't going.

  • "I've said this many times, so please, be forgiven if I'm redundant, but not Spike Lee the rebel arouser rabble rouser, not Spike Lee the trouble maker, not Spike Lee, according to Charlotte Rampling, the racist... The United Estates Census Bureau said by 2043 white americans will be a minority in this country. [...] If you don't address the diversity in this country, you're going out of business. People of color make 43% of the tickets bought here already... in movie theaters. That's facts, I'm not making this stuff up. So gotta move forward."











  • “The demographic complexity of this country should be reflected not only at the end of the chain, but since the beginning, in order that more of these people can be excited and integrated. These changes the Academy has made are a great step, but the Academy is at the end of the chain. Hopefully these positive changes can start from the beginning of the chain.”


SOURCE 1/SOURCE 2

Do you think the changes The Academy has made means shit, ONTD? Also, just a warning to not read the tweet replies to the sources because #PressedWhitePeople (AKA racists). TYFYA!
