    I’m sort of going to just put this out there for discussion. Nate Parker’s past pretty much torpedoed the Oscar chances of “Birth of a Nation.” But Casey Affleck has his own past, and yet nothing seems to impacting his chances at the Oscars. So my question– is there a double standard here?

    The Casey Affleck thing was a just a rumor (that I personally believe, looking at how scummy he seems IRL), plus sexual harassment, while unquestionably terrible, is nowhere near as awful as outright RAPE.

    Let’s put it like this: If there is a hell, Casey is getting some lewd sexual remarks thrown at him by the devil. Whereas with Nate, he is getting his ass RAPED by the devil! I also disagree that Casey is getting a pass, seeing as how he is so blatantly the lesser of 2 evils here. 😐

    No. Parker flopped because A) His film wasn’t that well received. 69 MC aint gonna go very far. If he had a film like Manchester then that would be a different story. Then B) the horrendous PR tour he went on where he pretty much committed career suicide. He only has himself to blame for completely flopping off the face of the planet when he couldnt even apologize to the victim who killed herself.

    Casey Affleck has done none of those things. I’m sure it will come up in phase 2 and if he flops like Parker, there is Washington waiting in the wings to take it from him.

    Yes Casey is getting a pass. Point blank. The reviews for Nate Parker were incredible. Reviews became negative when the case became headlines.

    By the way, if Nate did nothing wrong, why would he apologize. I sure as hell would not apologize if I was accused of rape and nothing happened.

    I believe that Affleck did what he was accused of, and that the reason he isn’t getting lambasted to the same extent is that he was already famous when the stories came out, whereas Nate Parker rocketed to fame with his past in hand. And let’s face it, reporters are too scared of pissing off Ben Affleck and Matt Damon and the rest of his celebrity friends to really come up against him

    Oh Nate did what he was accused of (The court records are all you need to see) BUT The fact that Casey also violated women and is still be rewarded is a testament that Color matters.

    I don’t support either guy, But lets call it what it really is. Casey is faults are ignored and he’s praised for his work in spite of because he’s not black. Casey should have felt the same reaction as Nate.

    Yes keep pushing the SJW angle and people will vote for Affleck purely out of spite lol. Did you learn nothing from the election?
