The way I see it, a good actor is a good actor. So does the problem, in part, lie with the people who are nominating and voting for the awards?

And there's a startling lack of white players in the NBA and NFL. Your point? Why does diversity have to extend to every walk of life? As it is now, minorities are always given prominent roles, especially in commercials, as the smart, successful people, the boss, while whitey plays the buffoon, the lackey. And besides, at the current reproduction and immigration rates the time as whites being the majority is coming to an end soon.

I'm an Asian American but I won't watch a show only because it stars an Asian or anything ridiculous like that. I watch a show cause its interesting. I'm also a liberal but I'm embarrassed that other liberals are constantly finding ways for people to feel guilty. Stop that.

The entertainment industry discriminating with ethnicity of starring roles...say it ain't so!! And they've made such excellent progress in the representation of diverse sexual preferences of their main characters...race hypocrites in Hollywood, hard to believe.
