Dustin Hoffman Says There's 'Always Been Racism' At Oscars

Dustin Hoffman says the lack of diversity at the Academy Awards wasn't anything surprising or new.

In an interview with AP, the two-time Oscar winner says instead of attending the awards, he was at a basketball game.

"I went to see the Knicks game and saw my friend Spike Lee there all dressed up for the Oscars, but he was at the Knick game," says Hoffman.

Lee was at Madison Square Garden in a black tuxedo, emphasizing his decision to not attend the ceremony.

However, Hoffman doesn't understand why it took until this year to highlight the lack of diversity.

"Well, it's always been that way. It's not anything new, like Chris Rock, I heard said, 'Why this year'," muses Hoffman.

"It's always been racism. It's kind of a reflection of what the country is."

"We change when the people that are oppressed force it to change."
