So recently there was backlash from the Black community because there were no Black winners of the Oscar Awards this year 2016. In response actors like Jada Pinket-Smith and Will Smith have boycotted the award show. Most recently Chris Rock has also joined the “BOYCOTT THE OSCARS” train.
My question is
Why are we worrying about the Oscars?
Why worry about the damn oscars when we have bigger things within the Black community to worry about. Any other time there is a real situations you rarely hear about these big celebrities standing up for a true cause. Yes they have these charities but they are only helping others in other communities. It seems that they only worry about what bothers or fucks with their life and works.
So How in the hell can an Oscar help us all? Answer: Aint no way in hell it could. But yet these celebs are some of the main ones looking down and turning away from the rest of us as if they werent black or black troubles dont bother them. Yet when it has something to do with “Famous African Americans” they jump in and on the train yelling “Oh we’re African American”.
For us, the rest of the Black Community to be worrying about some bullshit like this is just very stupid. The Oscar wont help shit, I think at the end of the day RECOGNITION FOR YOUR WORK IS WHAT COUNTS.
To worry about something like “The Oscars” is very silly. We have to worry about things like 1) Blacks being murdered by the police, 2) Getting more of our future generations on the right path , because those of the 1990’s -2000’s fucked it all up. 3) Come together and stop being divided.
The last thing I have to say is…..WHY IN THE HELL DO WE NEED THE OSCARS TO SHOW HOW GREAT SOMETHING IS. ALL.OF THE OTHER AWARDS THAT EXIST AND YALL WANNA BITCH OVER THE OSCARS. Grow Up.
