ESPN’s Wilbon: Academy picked McFarlane because it’s tired of blacks
ESPN co-host Michael Wilbon seems to think the Oscars are racist, saying Seth MacFarlane was only allowed to host because the Academy is tired of blacks.
"I don't like him," Mr. Wilbon said. "Why is he there? He's not worthy of being there. ... They got tired of famous black people, so they got to get a white guy — affirmative action Academy Awards host? Is that what this is about? Really?"
"I don't like MacFarlane," he continued. "He is a joke. He is not worthy of the people that were up there last night."
Chris Rock hosted the Oscars in 2005 and Whoopi Goldberg hosted in 2001.
