Until we meet again beautiful KINGS and QUEENS
Now I know this late according to some people but I’m the type of writer where I can’t write until I have some real to reflect on and have content to back it up.
Chris Rock as the host of The Oscars, tackling #OscarsSoWhite boycott and lack of diversity
At the 88th 2016 Academy Awards, Chris Rock hosts The Oscars , (in my opinion) dove right in and found a eloquent and comedic way of addressing the boycott (started by Jada Pinkett Smith, in defense of the lack of diversity in award nominees and categories aka the neglect of her actor husband, Will Smith), the lack of diversity in Hollywood and references to hashtag #OscarsSoWhite. Rock was able to get people out of their comfort zones and pay more attention by showing up and hosting the show even though some of his actor comrades would have preferred he not take the job. I mean, can’t you make more if s difference being in the room than not even in the game to start.
Now that I’ve said all of that, my subconscious reminded that Chris Rock had already addressed the issue of diversity and calling out the African American community a few years back in a HBO special, The Black List. His piece was one of my favorite because it not only make me want to stand up and take accountability for my own legacy but gave me the permission to fail at something but still get back up on my feet and keep going. Jada (as much as I love you), should’ve watched this because it may have been one of his best but you forgot you and your family are in position where if someone said you sucked, you’d still be okay. You are also in a position of power to create your own Black Academy Award Show (if you are ready, solicit my services for branding concepts and marketing).
Take a look at the clip and be reminded to get up and go to work for what you want, get in the room and let’s get to the point where we create our own opportunities and leverage our resources…you will still be awesome if you sucked!!
