I thought Oscars were for merit not for race.

Obviously then, there was a majority of people that felt that BLACKS HAVE NO MERIT...for whatever reason. Does this make sense? There's no way around this statement...especially after barely getting by last year. There's a certain type of people that don't want blacks NOWHERE in the equation at all...except SPORTS.

Last year awards for blacks were merited and given.

What an improvement! Best actor/Black male 1 in 2009, and 1 3years later in 2012. Best actress/Female 1 in 2009, 1 in 2011, and 1 in 2012. I guess Blacks didn't have enough merit to win in some of those previous years. YEAH, THAT IT!
