    Though this is about entertainment, it's very political, too, so here goes.

    A lot of us know what a lot of Hollywood folks would think of us, so how ironic that Hollywood is being accused of racism. Likable guy Danny DeVito, says, according to FOX NEWS, that the country is racist and that's reflected in Tinsel-Town. On the other side, the guy who produced "Shindler's List", Gerald Molen, said the people accusing Holywood of racism are "spoiled brats". I'd have thought Gerald would be on racism like a fox on a mouse! How ironic.

    Here's the Fox article:

    Regardless of whether or not you think racism is a problema in Hollywood, ya got to admit it's funny to watch it be accused of a lack of diversity. Heck, there are more people of color at a gun show than at the Academy Awards, and that's ironic.

    We are told that gun people are racist too. Then they call the Black gun supporters "Uncle Toms" for having the same values as White gun owners.

    Same with politics.

    It sounds more like they don't want it to be like BET and have preferences over performance.

    When is the little troll getting out of show biz to let fresh talent, black talent take his place. The little Weebil boy needs to hold a talent contest to find his black replacement.

    He was just a little fella with a big mouth..............not funny, not talented.............made money off being small, which is fine, but doesn't make him an authority on anything.
    I spend very little time concerned with what hollyweird is concerned with.
