Actress Regina King Says Emmy Awards Unfair To African Americans

ARTICLE FROM huffingtonpost.com (Full story click here)

As I sat and watched the red carpet activities for the Emmy Awards that aired recently, I said to myself, where are people of color? Are they in attendance? Are they there? If so, they are not being interviewed.

Something was wrong. Of course the same ole same ole’s were interviewed. Seal and his wife, and a few more but that was it. It was like African Americans and people of color do not act on television.

Readers I do not like to discuss color a lot here on my website, but today I was on the internet and saw beautiful actress Regina King’s article in the Huffington Post regarding the lack of African Americans and people of color nominated for Emmys this year.

In the last few years, only 53 non-whites have been nominated out of 1,000 nominations for a Emmy in the comedy and drama categories. Something is very very wrong.

Regina is also bothered by actress Alaina Reed not being included in this years memoriam for folks who have passed. Reed was a cast member on the legendary Sesame Street for 12 years!! How could she be left out readers? It is beyond me.

I watched the Emmys and was very very disappointed that African Americans and people of color were not nominated for awards and were not interviewed on the red carpet on E and on TV Guide coverage.

Stern Blasts Gabourey Sidibe About Her Weight

ARTICLE FROM huffingtonpost.com (Full story click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

I CANNOT believe what so called “shock jock” Howard Stern said about Oscar nominee actress Gabourey Sidibe over the air about her size!

Please listen to his STUPID and yes RACIST comments about Ms. Sidibe by clicking the link above. I am real bothered by his comments. And I am bothered by his sidekick Robin saying what she said too! The question is WHY DID HOWARD MAKE THESE COMMENTS AND WHY IS THIS NOT BIGGER THAN WHAT IT IS?

First of all Gab will find work again!!! She is looking over new roles right now Howard!!! And not only that I am sure OPRAH AND SPIKE AND DENZEL AND TYLER PERRY and others will make sure she will have a job acting in a movie!!! What a STUPID thing to say that Gabourey will not find another acting job!!!

It hurts me as African American that Howard would say that about her and hurts me even more that Gab’s African American sista would also make negative comments about Sidibe!!!!

Gabourey seems like such a down to earth young lady with a great personality. Yes she is a large lady. This is true. And hopefully she will shed some pounds for her health. But when she is ready she will. She does not need CLOWNS like Howard and Robin blasting her on national radio!!

And here is a question. What kind of talent does Howard have or Robin have? I think the pitbulls that Shorty trains on “Pit Boss” on TV have more talent than Howard and Robin!!!!!!!!!!! All Robin does is laugh and makes a stupid comment after Howard’s stupid comments!!!! It is beyond me why he makes millions. He is a no talent!!

These comments made by Howard and Robin should make Sidibe work harder and show the fool and crazy Howard that she is going to work and she will continue to be a wonderful actress and a great lady.

What Robin should have said on the radio as a African American female is how proud she was of Gabourey to be nominated for a Oscar and how proud she was of Monique to win a Oscar!!!! Instead of the very negative things said. Those comments make me angry and also very very sad.

What Howard said about Gabourey Sidibe is FLAT OUT WRONG AND TERRIBLE! I hope you readers are as bothered as I am by his comments.
