rather than being biased against blacks, they just decided that in the past 2 years, the performances of those who were nominated were superior to those who were not.
66 nominations. That's a 0.76 nominations per year average. Pathetic... wait it gets better.
During that same 87 year time frame, there have been 14 African American winners... that an average of less than one every 6 years.
Looks like the past 2 years aren't an anomaly. Either all of the on screen performances of African Americans suck or the selection process isn't equitable. The impartial observer has no other choice than to select the latter.
