War of the words between Adam Baldwin and Don Cheadle

Ever since the Motion Picture Academy announced the nominees for the 2016 Oscars, there have been some heated discussions on social media regarding the diversity-- or lack thereof-- displayed by the Academy’s choices. Nowhere has this been more apparent than Twitter, where #OscarsSoWhite has become an ongoing trend.
It all started with a joke from Don Cheadle who wrote...








Cheadle stopped replying after that.

It may also be interesting to note that between the two actors, Cheadle is the only one who has ever been nominated for an Oscar. In addition, IMDB notes that Cheadle has 36 nominations and 8 wins from other groups that by definition exclude white actors.

Who is Adam Baldwin again? Don Cheadle is giving this guy life by dignifying him with his attention.

A young man went to apply for a managerial position in a big company.

He passed the initial interview, and now would meet the director for the final interview.

The director discovered from his CV that the youth's academic achievements were excellent.

He asked, Did you obtain any scholarships in school...?
the youth answered "NO".

Who paid for your school fees...?
" Parents ", he replied.

"Where did they work......?"

"They worked as clothes cleaner."

The director requested the youth to show his hands.
The youth showed a pair of hands that were smooth and perfect.

"Have you ever helped your parents wash the clothes ?"

"Never,...

I've hardly ever posted on here but this 'journalism' is so ridiculous. I'm a daily reader and I really like the blog but for the past year or so, a lot of your articles have just been copied and pasted from other websites.
Case in point: this article was copied word for word from www.ijreview.com
I know you were hiring blog writers a while back and I feel like this is not you that's just copying and pasting without even citing the source. I'm bringing this up because I remember what you said when Google shut down your blog over some bogus claim; you apologized for not citing some sources and said you've learned and won't do it again. You've even said how you want to be build a journalism company or sth in the future. Like, this is completely wrong and you or your staff need to stop being lazy and write the stories in your own words.

I say this as a fan who's really disappointed in this laziness. Like, the articles are not even sweet to read again because the wordings just feels so out of place
