You might have seen it discussed in one or two places that this year's Oscar nominations are insanely white. One of the movies that got snubbed was "Straight Outta Compton," the NWA biopic whose only nomination was given to its white writers.


But what if "Straight Outta Compton" had been a…different sort of movie?

Take a look below.
