"If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 60 years ago, a liberal 30 years ago and a racist today."

Thomas Sowell. As ever years ahead of everyone else.

Thomas Sowell was and is one of my heroes for that reason.

He is undoubtedly the best first black president that America unfortunately never had.
I think he had too much integrity to go into politics.

This shouldn't be surprising. The few remaining that still support the Oscars are going to be well on-board with this racist stuff.

The requirements are minimal, they can literally tick one of the two boxes with only six film crew. One of the other four criteria is literally for the distributor to have two minority employees, even interns, or even just "offer training or work opportunities to people from those underrepresented groups", it's that broad. Pretty much the only way any major Hollywood production is going to fail to meet these criteria is if they're deliberately trying not to.
So what is the point? Cheap virtue signaling?
