It’s funny when liberal Hollywood gets a taste of its own medicine — even when it’s being attacked for celebrating American hero Chris Kyle and the actor who played him, Bradley Cooper.
Liberals are deriding Thursday’s Oscar nominations as the “whitest” since 1998.
The irony in this is that Hollywood is a big proponent of the “you have to include a black person even if they don’t deserve it” mantra.
Never mind that nominating someone simply because you believe you have to reach some non-white quota is racist in and of itself.
That logic is lost on the Twitterverse that flipped out over the pale complexion of this year’s Academy Awards.
#OscarNoms what a great day to be a white man! No, hang on – that's everyday, isn't it?

How fitting that an unartful movie about a white guy w/ a gun swept the #OscarNoms, yet a Civil Rights film about rights & race was ignored.

Yeah it’s not like Chris Kyle is an American hero and Bradley Cooper did an outstanding job playing him.
Not a single non-white actor was nominated for an Academy Award this year.

Let’s give “Selma” the Oscar now. It doesn’t matter what the actual best picture is.

Yes NOTHING has changed…if you forget about “12 Years A Slave,” Chiwetel Ejiofor and Lupita Nyong’o last year.

See, it’s Martin Luther King Day? You have to nominate non-whites on MLK Day. Come on, people.
There were also some non-lunatics who voiced there opinions.
Moments after release the usual curmudgeons saying #OscarNoms are "too white, too male". Grr.

everyone is so upset that all of the #OscarNoms for acting went to white people. is it just possible that they actually were the best…?
