One of my favorite bloggers, Funky Dineva adds an interesting insight on the Oscars excluding Black actors.
She opens the blog posts with,
I’m not really sure why so many people are up in arms about this supposed Oscar snub to Black films and Black actors. I been told y’all way back in 2014 that Black people need to stop expecting a committee that is made up of 94% White people to give two f*cks about Black art.
What baffles me to no end is why we as a people continue to seek validation from White award committees. It’s so funny to me how the very people who are so hell bent on winning an Oscar see very little value in a NAACP Image award or a BET award. It would seem to me that an award awarded to you by people who look like you would hold a hell of a lot more weight then an Oscar, but I digress.
She got my attention. If this got your attention you can read the post in its entirety @ The Dark Skinned Aunt Vivian vs. Jada Pinkett. Which One Is Right? Which One Is BITTER? – Funky Dineva
