Jada Pinkett-Smith Questions Whether African-Americans Should Participate In The Oscars

This week the African-American community was pretty pissed off after we witnessed the travesty that was this year’s Academy Award nominations. Not a single person of color was nominated in any category. 
Not one. Not an actor, not a director, not an editor, not a sound or special effects person. No one.
With all the amazing movies that came out this year, the academy didn’t find a single one featuring a black person worthy of their “prestigious” award.

Many have lent their voices to the chorus of dissatisfaction, but a voice as bold, brave and sincere as Jada Pinkett-Smith’s rings bells.
Earlier today, Jada sent out a series of short tweets lamenting the current state of affairs in Hollyweird and contemplates whether or not the Oscars is really something that people of color should be involved with.
