Come Again? Julie Delpy: “I Sometimes Wish I Were African American…”

It looks as if frustration over Hollywood’s diversity debate erupted over at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday, as actress/writer, Julie Delpy expressed that she felt muzzled by the industry and added that there’s “nothing worse than being a woman in this business.”

Delpy, who was Oscar-nominated as a writer both for “Before Midnight” and “Before Sunset,” said that she said she has raised awareness over the issue of how few women were members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and was shut down.

“Two years ago, I said something about the Academy being very white male, which is the reality, and I was slashed to pieces by the media,” she told TheWrap’s Jeff Sneider. ”

It’s funny — women can’t talk. I sometimes wish I were African American because people don’t bash them afterward.”
I’m just lost all the way around with this statement. How does her dilemma compare to the mistreatment of African Americans? People these days just seem to have no filter. The racial hatred, slavery and unjustified killings of black people is not to be taken lightly or compared with such foolishness. No ma’am Ms. Delpy, you can’t possibly wish such suffering. This idiotic quote may be a publicity stunt in order to bring more awareness to your beliefs but we are not pawns in your chest game and you should tread light from now on. This sort of silly behavior is one of the many reasons why this nation has and is so divided. No values or respect for other cultures!
For that unacceptable stunt, Julie, you are no doubt, the weakest link!!!

Leonardo Dicaprio is without a doubt a young legend in the entertainment industry but we love most about the actor is he is a humanitarian.

Leo is very passionate about helping to save the forgotten lands and restore our original history. Every chance he gets, he never hesitates to expose the hidden agendas of corporations. The hollywood star is very much awake and puts his money where his mouth is.

Get into this informative article from Seek The Truth and discover how serious Dicaprio is about saving our planet below:

  –  When Leonardo DiCaprio accepted his Golden Globe Award for Best Actor on January 10, he dedicated his award to the often ignored indigenous communities around the world. “And lastly, I want to share award with all the First Nations people represented in this film and all the indigenous communities around the world,” he said. “It is time that we recognize your history and that we protect your indigenous lands from corporate interests and people that are out there to exploit them. It is time that we heard your voice and protected this planet for future generations.” More than a week later, he has once again brought attention to indigenous communities. This week, it was revealed that DiCaprio donated $15 million for environmental projects, $3.4 million of which will go to the indigenous groups in the Ecuadorian Amazon who have been affected by petroleum extraction, according to El Universo. The money will specifically help the Cofanes, Secoyas, Sionas, and Huaoranis. The rest of the money will go to monitoring commercial fishing in Oceania, conservation of coral reefs in the Seychelles, promoting renewable energy in the United States, and protecting the rainforest from palmoil deforestation. “The destruction of our planet continues at a pace we can no longer afford to ignore,” DiCaprio said in a statement, People reports. “We have a responsibility to innovate a future where the habitability of our planet does not come at the expense of those who inhabit it. I am proud to support these organizations who are working to solve humankind’s greatest challenge.”

Ed Hartwell And Keshia Knight Pulliam Share Wedding Photo

Keshia Knight Pulliam and Ed Hartwell got engaged and quickly walked down the aisle. The couple got married in a little over 20 days.

Big Tigger threw accusations out telling everyone that the new couple may have already been married when the world found out about the engagement. Maybe he was telling the truth after all.

Keshia took to Instagram to share a shocking photo of the couple kissing taken during their wedding ceremony with the caption: The most AMAZING day of our life!!! New “Kandidly Keshia” available on play.it/Keshia. Listen as we share our magical wedding day. #IAmOfficiallyMrsHartwell

We wish the couple everlasting love but can’t help but wonder how the two moved so fast after Pulliam had recently been in a relationship with Big Tigger for so many years.
