What is your take on Jada Pinkett Smith's decision to Boycott the Oscars?


The backlash against the 2016 Academy Award nominations has continued to gain momentum. In a video posted on Facebook, Pinkett Smith made it clear that she was not even going to watch the Oscars on Television this year. On Monday, during Martin Luther King Junior’s birthday, she reiterated that asking or begging for acknowledgement diminishes power and dignity. Jada added that the people of color were a dignified and powerful people who did not need to stoop so low and the only option was to boycott the ceremony all together. What is your take on her decision?

    I think some official responded to her statement it seems like it was all aimed at driving some point home.

    Its a very tricky balance to strike between merit and representation indeed.
