Will Smith & Jada Pinkett-Smith, who’ve recently been in the news telling everyone that they’re boycotting the Academy Awards for its painful lack of diversity. Out of the 40 nominees in the actor category, there wasn’t a single nominee for a person of color. While obviously very shameful, this shouldn’t come as a total surprise. The fight will continue for years to come and it’s going to take more than passionate boycotts to change Hollywood! I think it’s safe to say that real & lasting change will be rooted what happens at the box-office.

Since Jada released her video plea a number of African-American celebs have come out in support. We should mention that Chris Rock will continue to host the event, so now I think I’ll tune in just to listen to all the jokes! Chris Rock is at his finest when he’s doing race-related jokes!

Anyway, for more on the winners at the award show, check out the NAACP Image Awards website.

    Economics 101.  If the 12% of the population of blacks would support the movies by buying tickets then black actors and actresses would get more parts.  They don’t support the films and so they don’t get the parts.  Their worst enemy has been Obama ratcheting up the racial tense to its worst level in 40 years.  I for one am sick of this anti-white hatred in the US.

    curvefan so now they are asking for an Oscar because they are black? After the movie “after earth” Will Smith and his family should retire for acting all together

    Wow, if you thought it was bad Jurnee’s parents didn’t know how to spell “journey”, you didn’t even see her siblings’ names: Jazz, Jussie, JoJo, Jake, Jocqui.
    On a scale of trailer trash to the Cardassians that’s like an 8.

    Loved the caption Moe. Did Darby go through the wrong set of doors?
