Subject: The Whitest Oscars since 1998

The 2015 Academy Awards will be "the whitest Oscars since 1998."
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has a message for you: artists of color are not welcome on the voter ballot or as an Oscar voter. Don't you think it's time to change that?
FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler
Demand the Academy announce and actively take steps toward diversifying their membership.
Take Action
Dear Fred, 
In particular, the Ava DuVernay-directed "Selma" was robbed, receiving a nod for Best Picture, but nothing for its incredible director or leading man, David Oyelowo. No people of color received nominations in any of the acting categories, and not a single woman was nominated for Best Director.
At a time when our news media and justice system continue to make clear how little the lives of black Americans matter, and our rights continue to be rolled back on a number of fronts -- from voting rights to our right to organize -- it matters that Hollywood continues to invalidate our images and stories.2 Unfortunately, this isn't a new issue. Since the inception of Hollywood we've had to combat harmful images and stereotypes, and fight for our own space to create and produce art that centers on the stories of people of color.
The Academy Awards have had eighty-seven years to figure it out -- to nominate, award, and affirm the value of artists of color -- and still they can't seem to get it right. This harmful, persistent Hollywood narrative of exclusion and discrimination will be affirmed once again by this year's ceremony. Of course, that is hardly surprising when we take into account the fact that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), the organization that determines Oscar nominees and winners, is 94% white and 76% male.3 Among them are individuals like Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch; in other words, people who do not have a vested interest in seeing anything change.
Clearly, the Oscars has a problem, both on screen and behind the scenes. It is time for the AMPAS -- and all other entities that fund a culture that devalues Black art -- to be intentional about diversifying their ranks and ensuring Black artists and entertainers are given the support, respect, and recognition they deserve.
Academy members are already making excuses for the Oscars' eighty-seven-year track record of exclusion. In an op-ed for The Hollywood Reporter, conservative member Lionel Chetwynd dismissed calls for the Academy to diversify as "tokenism," claimed it would lead to "mediocrity" at the Oscars, and essentially demanded we all just shut up and be patient: "Change will come slowly in such a system, but it will come."4 No thanks, Mr. Chetwynd. Throughout our history, racial justice movements have heard similar refrains from those who claim to be our allies; "Be patient," "go slow." But as Dr. King himself explained in his landmark Letter from a Birmingham Jail, there comes a time when "the cup of endurance runs over," when the seemingly endless wait for justice is no longer tolerable. Eighty-seven years is a very long time, Mr. Chetwynd; we are no longer willing to wait.
These awards matter; the Oscars telecast lifts up those considered to be among today's most important artists and entertainers, resulting in increased financial backing for future projects and the opening of doors and opportunities for those featured. Black artists being denied their rightful place in these shows only helps to solidify the fallacy that Hollywood is the playground of white people, and that the cultural products of Black people don't matter and are undeserving of praise, funding, or the attention of the public.
Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs has stated her desire to see a more diverse AMPAS, saying recently that "it's very important for us to continue to make strides to increase our membership and the recognition of talent."5 However, clearly more needs to be done. There are many common sense measures the AMPAS could take right now, including the disclosure of the AMPAS' diversity numbers and the diversity of films considered by the Academy, a survey of current members to see if they're actually watching Black films prior to voting, and a long-term commitment to diversifying the organization's Board of Governors, on which Isaacs is currently the only Black person.
The AMPAS is sending a dangeorus message to young people about the worthiness of their stories and images. We must hold the AMPAS accountable here, and demand Black stories, Black art, and Black people be valued and affirmed by the entertainment industry.
Thanks and Peace,
--Rashad, Arisha, Matt, Brandi, Dallas and the rest of the ColorOfChange team.

Finally!!! Some good news for Sherri Shepherd! As Shepherd prepares to leave the daytime talker The View on August 7th, she got news from a judge who decided to let her keep custody of her nine-year old son. Shepherd's ex-husband, Jeffrey Tarpley, took her to court trying to gain full custody of their nine-year old claiming Shepherd was a terrible mother who worked too much. The judge didn't agree, and now Shepherd retains full custody of her son. Let's hope she gets good news regarding her soon to be ex-husband Lamar Sally. Sally is dragging Shepherd into court demanding that she be a mother to their unborn surrogate child. Shepherd announced a couple of weeks ago, that she was backing out of the deal citing Sally only wants money. Shepherd says she was coerced into the surrogate agreement, and that Sally should take responsibility since it IS his sperm and NOT her eggs. Sally has accused Shepherd of not being a good Christian because she backed out of the deal. Shepherd realizes she has made a major mistake.....again! She just wants to put this marriage drama behind her and get on with her life.

T.I. and Tiny Pour It Out in Song

T.I. and Tiny release dual singles pouring out their relationship problems in song…
*Lauryn Hill took the sage nearly an hour after her call time in Chicago last week, then had the nerve to snap at a fan who complained, reports TMZ.
Hill was in the Windy City for a gig at the House of Blues, and sources tell the website she was supposed to begin the set at 10:30 p.m. — but took her sweet time, and didn't actually make it to the stage until 11:20.
Once she did, most accounts say Lauryn's opening song performance was terrible, and when a fan called her out and flipped her off … she berated him and had him tossed by security.
The person who shot this video tells TMZ they decided to leave after two more songs (which they called "rushed and sloppy") … and say they saw a huge line of people at the box office asking for a refund.
Watch her exchange with the fan  click here.

Woman sued by Tyler Perry says he's a fake Christian: "I felt bullied"

The Aaliyah bio-pic for Lifetime is moving ahead, and now The Queen Of All Media, Wendy Williams, is behind the project as executive producer. Actress Alexandria Shipp will now be starring in the movie. Disney Star Zendaya Coleman backed out of the project due to the controversy surrounding Aaliyah's family not approving, the criticism on casting and the content of the movie itself. Williams says the movie will tell the real story about the late singer, including her career and controversial marriage to R Kelly when she was 15 and he was 27.


In other Lifetime movie news, Cissy Houston is not happy with the fact that the cable network is doing a movie about her daughter Whitney Houston. Cissy says let her daughter rest in peace.

Nutritionists Are in Bed With McDonald's

Mother Jones
Subject line: Nutritionists Are in Bed With McDonald's
May 12, 2014
With 75,000 members, the National Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is the world's largest professional association for nutritionists and dietitians. It holds giant annual conferences, where members get continuing ed credits. It accredits undergraduate and graduate programs in nutrition science. In Washington, its lobbying arm is active on issues including childhood obesity, Medicare, and food safety.
It's also sponsored by some of the biggest names in the food industry.
Recently, I attended the annual conference the California chapter of the Academy. Guess who was catering lunch? And guess what industry spokespeople told the assembled group of nutritionists about chocolate milk in schools? For the answers, click here.
