Watch: Clint Eastwood Destroys ‘All-White’ Oscars Protesters With 1 Perfect Sentence

Leave it to famed Hollywood tough guy Clint Eastwood to give some common sense to those in Hollywood who accuse the Oscars of being “too white.”

The cameras from the Hollywood gossip site TMZ discovered the famed actor and director exiting an establishment in Tinsel Town and threw out the question about the Oscar controversy.

The five-time Oscar winner and eleven-time nominee had a bit of advice for the folks all upset over the nominations this year. He was certainly soft spoken and even tempered about it all, but his answer did have a bit of a bite to it.

“All I know is,” the Dirty Harry star said, “there are thousands of people in the Academy and a lot of them–the majority of them–haven’t won Oscars.”

He admitted he wasn’t paying too much attention to those upset over the annual movie awards adding, “a lot of people are crying, I guess.”

Clint Eastwood isn’t the only denizen of the film industry making waves over the Oscars.

A boycott of the Oscars was called for by African American stars like actor Will Smith, his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, Director Spike Lee, and others.

Others, like actress Stacey Dash, now a Fox News commentator, caused a furor on the left when she criticized the boycott saying too many have become overly sensitive. Dash also criticized the separatism of Black History Month, Black Entertainment TV and Black beauty contests.

Al Sharpton has also been involved in the controversy, accusing the Oscars of “racism” and seeming to imply there should be some sort of quotas enforced in the nomination procedure.

To that former African American Congressman Alan West had suggestion:


WATCH Women Of ‘The View’ Turn On Guest Host After She Asks 1 Question They Hate

Fox News contributor Stacey Dash made some controversial comments on The Fox and Friends this week. “We have to make up our minds. Either we want to have segregation or integration, and if we don’t want segregation, then we have to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the Image Awards, where you’re only awarded if you’re black,” Dash said. “If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It’s a double standard.”

Dash’s comments implied that if network channels were openly promoting the Caucasian race, then cries of racism and discrimination would result, all the while BET (Black Entertainment Television) is geared for a black audience and to promote black issues.

Now, co-host of The View, Sonny Hostin, pointed out what she considered Dash’s “hypocrisy” “I think it’s the height of hypocrisy that Stacey Dash would say that there should be no BET when she had a recurring role on the BET show, The Game,” Hostin said. Hostin then recounted how Dash presented at the NAACP Theatre Awards and was on the cover of Jet, Pride, Heart & Soul, Smooth and King magazines, all targeted to Black readers.

“I just think it’s incredible that she would give up whatever values she had in the first place to pander to an audience that is sort of angry and scared of people that don’t look like them,” Hostin said intimating Fox New’s audience is all Caucasian and fearful of other races.

When Paula Faris tried to suggest that there may be some truth to Dash’s comments, she was immediately shut down. Faris asked, “Is it subconsciously, whether we realize it or not, creating a divide amongst us and pitting one group against the next?” Hustin aggresively interjected, “No, no it’s not Paula, no it’s not. The reason there’s a black history month is because…when I was in school I wasn’t taught about my history. So we have that so that there’s an awareness and so that people can learn information and their history.”

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg asked Faris, “What do you know about Black History?” Not getting the answer she expected, Goldberg sarcastically said, “I’ll answer my own question.”

Famous Black Commentator Just Admitted The HARSH Truth About Obama And Race The WH Wants Quiet

Liberal radio talk show host Tavis Smiley told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly Monday night that President Obama has failed black America.

Kelly introduced the segment by citing Gallup polling which found in June/July of 2008, 68 percent of Americans believed race relations were Good/Somewhat Good, while 30 percent thought they were Bad/Somewhat Bad. The polling firm reported last summer less than half, 47 percent, believe relations are good, while 53 percent report them as bad.

Kelly turned to Smiley and asked, “On the subject of race, are we better off today that seven years ago?”

“I’m not sure we are and I think ultimately the president missed a moment,” Smiley responded. “On every leading economic issue, on the major economic issues, black Americans have lost ground in every one of those leading categories. So in the last 10 years it hasn’t been good for black folk. This is the president’s most loyal constituency that didn’t gain any ground really in that period.”

Smiley went on to state, “Historians are going to have a field day I think juxtapose how in the era of the first black president, the bottom fell out for black America. Black people were still in many ways politically marginalized, socially manipulated and economically exploited. That is a lot to try to square in the era of the first black president.”

Kelly questioned the radio talk show host concerning whether he thought President Obama could have done anything differently. Both agreed making healthcare his first policy objective was “divisive,” which started his presidency off on the wrong foot with many. Smiley said he should have led with jobs.

The well-established maxim is the best anti-poverty program is a job, which is the reason the poverty rate for African Americans and the country overall dropped in the 1980s and ’90s, while the economy boomed under pro-growth policies.

Conservative commentator Larry Elder pointed out in Townhall last summer:

What about poverty? In 2009, when Obama took office, the black poverty rate was 25.8 percent. As of 2014, according to Pew Research Center, the black poverty rate was 27.2 percent.

What about income? CNNMoney says, “Minority households’ median income fell 9 percent between 2010 and 2013, compared to a drop of only 1 percent for whites.” The Financial Times wrote last October: “Since 2009, median non-white household income has dropped by almost a 10th to $33,000 a year, according to the U.S. Federal Reserve’s survey of consumer finances. As a whole, median incomes fell by 5 percent…The black/white “wealth-gap” has reached a 25-year high…

What about unemployment? In 2009, black unemployment was 12.7 percent, and by 2014, it had fallen to 10.1 percent. This sounds like good news until one examines the black labor force participation rate — the percentage of blacks working or seeking work. It’s the lowest since these numbers have been recorded.

Watch: This New Coca-Cola Ad Was So ‘Offensive’ That The Company Pulled It Immediately

Coca-Cola unintentionally brewed up some controversy when it released an ad showing young people in Mexico seeking to spread Christmas cheer to a native community.

The ad has very much the look and feel of the types of ads the soft drink giant releases in the U.S. during the holidays. In it, model-like, in some instances fair-skinned, young people are seen joyfully working in a wood shop before they load up their materials in a Camino pickup truck and head for the mountains.

“This Christmas a group of young people decided to give something very special to the indigenous community of Totontepec (Villa) de Morelos in Oaxaca. You, too, open your heart,” Coca-Cola says in the #AbreTuCorazon (“Open Your Heart”) ad.

The ad notes that 81.6 percent of Mexico’s indigenous people feel rejected for speaking a language other than Spanish.

The youths show up in the community of Totontepec and build a red tree with Coca-Cola lights with the words “We Will Stay United” in the indigenous Mixe language. The villagers seem to appreciate the gesture and share a Coke and a smile a Coke feel good moment.

Que es la problema? (What is the problem?) “This type of publicity is an act of discrimination and racism,” Elvira Pablo, an indigenous lawyer, said at a press conference in Mexico City on Wednesday. “It is a comment on our type of life and an attempt to put a culture of consumerism in its place.”

Many took to social media to slam the ad, as well.

Coke, under the onslaught of negative feedback, decided to pull the ad last week, explaining in a statement to Eater:

As part of Coca-Cola México’s Christmas campaign for this year the video “Mixe Community Totontepec” was launched on digital channels, seeking to convey a message of unity and joy. Our intention was never to be insensitive to or underestimate any indigenous group.

We have now removed the video and apologize to anyone who may have been offended. In nearly 90 years in the country, Coca-Cola Mexico has worked to share messages of unity and friendship to contribute to build a society free of prejudices.

Listen: MLK’s Niece Blasts Mizzou Protesters With History Lesson They Won’t Want To Hear

The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said her uncle would likely offer one piece of overriding advice to the University of Missouri protesters: “We all must learn to live together as brothers (and I add as sisters) or perish as fools.”

In an interview with USA Radio News’ Russ Jones, Dr. Alveda King referenced the Bible verse Acts 17:26 as a crucial fact all should keep in mind when considering people of different races. “The communities across America, including at Mizzou, [the Bible] says we are one blood, one human race, so we have the ability and the capacity to love each other as brothers and sisters and to conduct ourselves accordingly,” the minister and Georgia state representative told Jones. 

“My uncle Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, ‘We all must learn to live together as brothers (and I add as sisters) or perish as fools,’” she added. “It’s wrong to charge us with racism when we simply want to educate young people.” Listen to her remarks below: 

As reported by Western Journalism, Jones is an alumni of the University of Missouri and was dismayed to see the school undergoing such turmoil earlier this month. “This is not the beloved Mizzou many know,” he said. “How are administrators, and the nation for that matter, supposed to take seriously issues of discrimination when the facts seem to say something very different?”

Jones founded the group TruthsMattersMU to examine and challenge some of the claims being made by Concerned Student 1950, the campus group which spearheaded the Mizzou protests. Truth Matters wants to provide a space for “a rational and reasoned response to racial tensions on the campus.”

According to the TruthMattersMU Facebook page, some of the facts it believes are true include:

-President Tim Wolfe was falsely accused and should not have resigned.

-Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin should not have stepped down.

-1st Amendment rights are being threatened.

-Protests are creating further division rather than embrace diversity. 

-Questions there is system-wide racism at the University of Missouri 

The TruthMattersMU’s page was briefly shut down by Facebook for “hate speech” according to Jones. Truth Matters stated it received a notice from the social media company stating, the page did not “follow the Facebook Terms and Community Standards.”

The notification read: “While people can use Facebook to challenge ideas, institutions, and practices, Facebook removes hate speech. Hate speech includes content that directly attacks people based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, sex, gender, or gender identity, or serious disabilities or diseases.”

Truth Matters appealed and Facebook reversed its decision calling it an “accident.” Jones told the News Tribune that the company probably meant “mistake.”

“He suspects groups or individuals supporting the MU protesters complained about the page, and it might have been automatically taken down without anyone from Facebook looking to see whether it indeed violated any policy,” the Tribune reported. 

“We used the Facebook speech tools to restrict incendiary terms that could be considered hate speech,” said Jones. “What seems absolutely clear is that there is a cultural movement to restrict intellectual honesty.”
