Maybe he should relinquish some roles -- give 'em to minorities

Mark Ruffalo, perhaps most famous for playing the Hulk in the Avengers films, is considering joining Will Smith, Jada Pinkett and Spike Lee in boycotting the Oscars ... because white privilege is rampant in America:

Iím weighing it, yes. Thatís where Iím at right now. I woke up in the morning thinking, Ďwhat is the right way to do this?í Because if you look at Martin Luther King, Jr.ís legacy, what he was saying is the good people who donít act are much worse than the wrongdoers who are purposely not acting and donít know the right way.

It isnít just the Academy Awards. The entire American system is rife with white privilege racism. It goes into our justice system.

Ruffalo is up for Best Supporting Actor for the film Spotlight; think he'll remove his name from consideration so a black or Latino actor can fill it?

Cheeyeah, right.

"Guilty" white progressives like Ruffalo never apply their beliefs to themselves. It's like progressives who demand everyone pay higher taxes because "we're all in it together" (as they define "it"); however, they don't send extra cash to the federal treasury. In fact, they often take advantage of every tax dodge their wealthy accountants can muster for 'em.

The real outrage shouldn't be over the Oscars not giving any nominations to non-whites; it should be over giving a nomination to Ruffalo, an actor so bad that he's barely believable as a human being.

"perhaps most famous for playing the Hulk in the Avengers films"

No, a combination of Lou Ferrigno's voice and CGI play the Hulk. Ruffalo allegedly plays Bruce Banner, but they'd have been better off keeping Ed Norton (someone who can actually act) or casting a tree (something that's more capable of emoting than Ruffalo).
