    Why are black actors forced to play in slave movies in order to be in Hollywood??
    Also why do black people care so much about the Emmys ??
    At this point they aka {Hollywood} are giving out sympathy awards for viewing numbers the black community!
    Black people need to start their own awards and stop trying to reform things that weren’t created with them in mind .
    Hollywood only rewards sellouts !!!
    *P.S. why do they reward black gay men more than straight ones ?
