all of these left wing, liberal crap awards, i.e., The Blindside, The Help and now another piece of paean tripe.

sure slavery is not the most sought after principal occupation, but neither is being the victim of genocide for 500 years.

the south may have been prospered on the backs of blacks but the west was settled on the bones of the red man.

OP whines that all of the awards are going to brown people instead of the natives.....

12 yrs a slave should have been called "12 Years a Slave, 300 Years of Bitching About It".

This stupid ass movie had to win, if it didn't that would have been "racist".

And we all know that everyone has to buy into the distorted facts of slavery or else.

I felt the same way after, Django Unchained....way too one-sided and toooo long.....Hollywood refuses to present black history or reality...Part of social engineering....As much as they decry intolerance, it is often they, that don't tolerate the truth.....

I got to thinking about this, Washington DC is like 95% blacks or some high high number.

So those must be all the descendants of all the slave owners. Guess what, they are still slaves in that city, otherwise there would be a much larger mix of races.

Have not heard anything about that, we had the black butler movie. But government officials seem to want all blacks to do all the chores.
