Do you seriously believe that there would be violence if Moonlight didn't win?
I have this crazy tendency of taking threats as real unless proven otherwise, and there were many threats of protests/riots after they felt slighted in past awards presentations.

Given the race baiters' record for making good on threats of unrest, It's far from irrational to expect them to do otherwise when promised.

Can you show me an example of riots after award ceremonies where someone didn't win?

Also, "race baiters' record for making good on threats of unrest"? Can you tell me what you're talking about?

Lucky for us (and purely coincidental I'm sure) the very next big award after the threats, went to a minority populated film, so there is no riot to point toward. I have no doubt, however,that if the other movie had won the possibility of unrest was very real.

As far as my comment on race baiters making good on their threats, it is easy to look at all the race related riots in the past few years and know that there is a large group of domestic social terrorists who lie in wait for an opportunity to burn shit down and steal liquor and sneakers under the guise of outrage over a perceived injustice.

They did it to save their horrible ratings and still failed. Their ratings were even worse than last year. Just like this terrible website, once things become politicized and turn politically correct, they lose their credibility and anything that once made them entertaining.

That's true, their called black people. They are very bitter, very sensitive and very opportunistic. Even when there wasnt a black film to be snubbed, they just called them racist for not having enough black movies. White Hollywood liberals are all weaklings so they fold any time the black community pressures them, which is why the blacks continuously do it. If they had balls like Trump to call out black people for this bullshit, it would probably cool down.
