NBC cancels Golden Globes for 2022

But not because of ratings or because people are sick of actors' speeches/lectures about activism, it is because NBC wants to see "reform" from the Golden Globes. Meaning, more "inclusive" and so on.

It's like the entertainment industry as a whole in recent times is being "punished" for the fact that people of certain ethnicities very often tend to pursue other careers.

I mean, sure, times have changed since I was in high school. But I doubt they've changed THAT much. My school was very diverse, but the entire Drama department (both actors and "crew" people) was white kids. I had a lot of friends in Drama so I remember how it was quite vividly. Tryouts were open to everyone and they always had opening for backstage crew as well, but the fact is it was almost 100% only white kids who joined Drama. Nobody was being "discriminated" against, it's just that Black and Hispanic and Asian and Indian kids all did other sh*t and didn't care about acting or being a stagehand or whatever. I think there was like one Asian kid and one Black kid, but that's it. You had to try out to get into the Drama club and most non-white kids simply didn't give a sh*t.

I mean, this might sound "mean" or whatever but a lot of stereotypes exist for a reason. Of all the black kids I was friends with, or even knew casually, not one of them had any aspirations to be an actor, or a director, or a producer; their preferred career opportunities were almost always either "Sports Star" or "Rapper" (none of them made it to either, but that's not my point). The Indian kids all went into Computer Science. The Asian kids were all into chemistry, and some of them were also into Computer Science. And so on and so forth. None of the non-white kids had any aspirations whatsoever to be involved in movies or TV, either in front of or behind the camera. If they wanted to be, the opportunities were there. They simply had other interests; that should be "allowed".

And yeah, that's all anecdotal, but in my experience that does sort of seem to be the case on a macro level as well; acting and production is just a thing more white people aspire to get into, therefore you're going to have more white people than non-white people both in front of and behind the cameras. How can you rightly "penalize" someone for that? It's like saying we should penalize and boycott ballet because not enough men are represented; they're not represented because men generally don't give a sh*t about doing it in the first place. And that's perfectly fine.

Not everything is as simple as checking boxes and making numbers even. Nobody gave a sh*t about any of this kinda stuff until about 5 years ago, and now it's The Most Important Thing In The World.

Except the truth is, most people still don't give a sh*t.

I mean nobody's ever given a sh*t about the goddamn Golden Globes in the first place, but this nonsense isn't exclusive to this one thing, is my point.

So how they gonna make it more diverse?
Include more trash among the nominees to increase diversity?
Include more "competent diverse people" in the committee, which assigns nominations?
Make some Africans dance on the stage in native tribal costumes?
Just what do they want?

At this point I am starting to associate "diversity" with "diversion".

Same thing as anything with this stuff - let them come up with any spin, any excuse, any protest, bla bla bla. Maybe there is even a hint of validity to this one. But it doesn't matter.

If the straggler raging lefties here think that you are changing things by tearing up the streets then you should point your efforts into the direction of the Hollywood elite and bankrupt those scumbags. They take your money, they live in excess, and then call you peasants as they point you in the direction of anyone but them in pretend support of your cause.

And meanwhile just continuing bankrupting their ego-affairs like nonsense award shows and accolades for doing absolutely nothing of merit by not watching these shows.

It's as simple as that. Every single one of these award shows and narcissistic events have had dwindling viewership and financial support for years.

It's literally a support of racism. Is there even a shred of evidence that non-white movies or anybody is being suppressed or shot down because they're making a non-whitish movie? If so I would stand behind said people. But if the general idea is just to forcibly replace people with other people simply due to race and checkmarks not being checked according to SJWs... this is not only racism but tyranny.

It should not be surprising really - a lot of those people hail Socialism / Communism from their ivory towers. And if you know how Socialism / Communism works in real life...yeah, tyranny is one of the main components of it. Of course, for the betterment of humanity.

And if previous generations of commies were crying that rich people were stealing surplus from proletariat, this generation found common enemy in White people.

After all it would be awkward, if modern commies went after Apple or Microsoft which moneyhats those freaks.

It does happens that way sometimes. The college I went to had a good mix of students, but I only had one class where I was the only one who wasn't white. It was this black and white photography class that I took one semester during the summer. Minorities will talk about times how they were the only one who wasn't white somewhere. I believe that was my first time having such an experience, but it wasn't even bad. Nobody treated me differently or treated me badly, and I got along with everyone. There was also a color photography class, and if I remember correctly, it only consisted of four girls, and only one of them wasn't white. I even talked to some of those girls, and they even let me, like it was nothing.

It was almost the same thing when I attended this Harry Potter seminar that ties in with the Harry Potter exhibit at this museum. They were having a lot of Harry Potter activities at that museum at the time. I was debating for a while if I wanted to go to that event. You had to pay to go to them, and they all had limited spots. On the day they were having it, I finally decided I'd go, and paid for my admission online. When I got there I think there were about 20 people. There was only one person besides myself who wasn't white. Not only that, but we were also the only guys there. In fact, he came with one of the women who was also there. There were limited spots, and there were spots still open by the time of the event. Other non-white people could have attended if they wanted to, but for some reason didn't. It's not like the people organizing the events tried to make it a secret from non-white people. People I tried to talk to there were also nice to me and didn't act like they were afraid of me.

Pfft. More like a cover story to avoid the humiliation of no one watching their show. I mean the 2021 Oscars fell to dismal record lows of less than 10 million.

Academy Awards ratings plummet to all-time low as viewership drops below 10 million
Sarah Whitten, CNBC, April 26 2021

https://archive.ph/znj0o

Quote:
  • Only 9.85 million viewers tuned into Sunday’s Oscars ceremony, a nearly 59% percent drop from the 23.6 million viewers that turned on their TVs for the program last year, according early fast national numbers released by Nielsen.
  • The Academy’s third hostless show in a row scored a 1.9 rating among adults 18-49, a key demographic for advertisers, a 64% drop from 2020.
  • The production announced the best picture winner ahead of the two best acting awards, which led to a flat ending. The producers were betting the late Chadwick Boseman would be named best actor but Anthony Hopkins won.

The 2021 Oscars ceremony was watched by the smallest audience the award show has ever received.

On par with the performances of the Emmys and Golden Globes during the pandemic, the Academy Awards struggled to pull in mainstream viewers. Only 9.85 million viewers tuned into Sunday’s ceremony where Searchlight’s “Nomadland” took the top prize and Netflix walked away with the most wins. That’s a nearly 59% drop from the 23.6 million viewers that turned on their TVs for the program last year, according early fast national numbers released by Nielsen.
If these white Hollywood liberals were so concerned about "diversity" and "inclusion", then they should resign their powerful positions in Hollywood and give them to these oppressed minorities they constantly virtue signal about. No, they won't? ...But it's okay to fire/lay off others, and give that position based on identity politics, because it's not their own jobs, right?

Aren't modern Western countries (especially the USA) diverse enough?

Facts and logic are not SJWs forte.

They act like there are Gestapo chasing all non-Whites 24/7 and that POCs are oppressed everywhere else. And that mere existence of White people and their culture, math and literature is oppressive.

They are lunatics. Not rational humans.
