#OscarSoWhite…Redux

Movie Poster I pased For White

Before the great “diversity ” in Hollywood. This 1960 “B” film tells of the desperate plight of a “light complexioned Negro girl” played by Sonya Wilde who marries the wealthy blonde scion of a snobbish society family without revealing her background. Do I hear trouble?

Yet again.

Here’s one sure way to get an Oscar nomination.

Taking a cue from the title of this 1960 movie, perhaps the best way to get an Oscar nod in diversity-free 2016 would be to pass for white.

Oscars so White…so what’s new?
