Racist antagonist Al Sharpton took to the podium this week to complain about the lack of diversity of Academy Award nominees.

The Oscar nominations were released earlier this week and no African Americans were included in the nominations of the top 20 actors.

Sharpton, the community activist turned talk show host, told the media, “Hollywood is like the Rocky Mountains, the higher up you get the whiter it gets.”

The Reverend Al continued his rant on Twitter:

Notably missing from Sharpton’s rant was recommendations of black actors who deserved recognition.

“Black” movies that qualified for this years Oscars included “The Wedding Ringer,” Will Smith’s “Focus,” “Magic Mike XXL,” and “Straight Outta Compton.”

Sharpton also failed to complain about the lack of diversity with the Heisman Trophy awards, where a disproportionate five of the last eight winners of the award were black.
