Diminutive actor and comedian Danny DeVito weighed in on the trumped-up controversy over this year’s Oscar nominations, brought on because none of those nominated have particular skin tones.
DeVito, a progressive leftist like many in Hollywood, sees a country where “generally speaking” everyone is racist, except for him of course.
In an Associated Press (AP) interview at the Sundance Film Festival on Saturday, DeVito said (see video below):
“It’s unfortunate that the entire country is a racist country. So it’s an example of the fact that even though some great people have given some great performances in movies, they weren’t even thought about. We are living in a country that discriminates and has certain racist tendencies. So sometimes it manifests itself in things like this [the Oscar nominations] and it’s illuminated. But just generally speaking, we’re a bunch of racists.”
It’s in vogue to divide people among racial lines — to have quotas — to only judge people according to skin color, precisely the opposite of MLK’s admonition to judge people according to their character and not by their skin color.
DeVito probably thinks his towing the liberal line of racial quotas, a true form of discrimination, will place him in the graces of other elitist Hollywood liberals who worship the false progressive god of political correctness.
Notice that virtually no one has a problem with the NBA being roughly three-quarters black, or 0.2% Asian. Why is that?
