Jada Pinkett-Smith is Boycotting the Oscars

jada-pinkett-smith-68946You know, Jada? Pinkett? Smith?

Okay, anyway, she and a whole slew of other Hollywood black people are boycotting the Academy Awards because Mrs. Smith’s husband, Will black people didn’t get nominated this year.

The Daily Caller:

Jada Pinkett-Smith is boycotting the Oscars this year after no black actors were nominated for an award.

The 44-year-old actress posted a video on Facebook Monday morning announcing her decision.

“Is it time that people of color recognize how much power, influence, that we have amassed, that we no longer need to ask to be invited anywhere?” Pinkett-Smith said.

“Maybe it’s time that we recognize that if we love and respect and acknowledge ourselves in the way in which we are asking others to do, that that is the place of true power.”

“Begging for acknowledgement, or even asking, diminishes dignity and diminishes power. And we are a dignified people and we are powerful,” she added. “Let’s do us, differently.”

“I will not be at the Academy Awards and I will not be watching.” [read it all here]

That’s certainly what Hollywood needs, more actors who love and respect and acknowledge themselves.

No word on whether or not Mrs. Denzel Washington or Mrs. Samuel L. Jackson or Mrs. Morgan Freeman or any other black actors’ spouses who almost no one cares about will be joining the boycott.

Now for an opposing opinion from someone who thinks the African American community might have more pressing needs… [Warning: Contains Language That May Be Offensive To Some]
