As card-carrying members of the liberal-socialist party, the aggrieved African-American victim society never tire of whining about seeing racism behind every tree.

In extensive interviews with the Hollywood Reporter, older members of the Academy blasted the organization’s leadership for the rule changes, which mandate that members must be “active” in filmmaking within ten years in order to cast a vote for Academy Awards nominations, unless they have previously been nominated for, or have won, an Oscar.

Ice Cube on Oscars: Once Your Horse Loses the Race…Tear Up Your Ticket
