  1. Hey Cheryl,

    Just more white folks. Diversity doesn’t really cross the tech side, I guess.

    Again, for the record, I think the Academy really screwed the pooch with its all too quick reaction/actions. It has pissed off a much bigger majority of folks (in and out of the industry) who do not believe it acted with any real thought, honor and dignity…and even worse, with no regard to its members.

    I truly feel bad for Chris Rock. Hope he eats them alive and takes no prisoners.
