Miles to go before we sleep ...

An interesting LA Times piece today asks "why Oscar distribution tends to favor white over nonwhite actors." Then it answers its own question: The membership of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is overwhelmingly white (94%) and male (77%). It's not that complicated. That's not to say the AMPA is consciously racist. Yet, it is what it is. Which is simply to say, to paraphrase Robert Frost, there are "Miles to go before [we] sleep."
