Having seen all the media coverage on this topic, felt compelled to post a debate on this subject.
My position is whilst I understand the lack of black representation is an issue, a bigger issue for me would be positive discrimination that places undeserving nominees in the running because of the colour of their skin.
Whilst society continually segregates into areas of colour/race and religion this will continually happen, I cite the MOBO's and BETS are case points of this.
The best performances in this case should be nominated as should the best person for the job in a job opportunity, race, sex, colour, age and religion should not come into anyone's thinking.
In a way positive discrimination breeds more discrimination in my opinion.

My issue is the lack of transparency in the voting system so therefore yes I will argue for more black representation In the nominee voting system. Personally I no longer wish to watch movies with no ethnic people playing lead roles, haven't in a while. Ethnic people are rarely given the credit they deserve but will definitely hear the criticism. Same old arguments...its getting boring. Repay for slavery and let's just segrogate!
