In an interview with the Guardian, veteran actress and former model Charlotte Rampling has suggested that maybe black people just weren’t up to snuff this year, and that boycotting the Oscars is “racist to whites.”

And then there’s this baffling quote:

“Why classify people? These days everyone is more or less accepted ... People will always say: ‘Him, he’s less handsome’; ‘Him, he’s too black’; ‘He is too white’ ... someone will always be saying ‘You are too’ [this or that] ... But do we have to take from this that there should be lots of minorities everywhere?”
