Jada Pickett Smith Ponders Oscar Boycott

When the nominees for the Oscar awards were announced on Thursday several people felt that people of color were neglected and some celebrities like Will Smith’s wife Jada Pickett was very vocal about the whole matter and floated the idea of a boycott. Yesterday,
the actress took to Twitter to air out her views,

“At the Oscars … people of color are always welcomed to give out awards … even entertain, but we are rarely recognized for our artistic accomplishments,” she wrote. “Should people of color refrain from participating all together?”

She further goes on to say, “People can only treat us in the way in which we allow. With much respect in the midst of deep disappointment.”

 

No single actor of color was nominated for an award including her husband Will Smith who was nominated for a golden globe for his role in Concussion.

Since the announcement of the nominees #OscarsSoWhite trended on social media as the academy received a backlash for snubbing great movies like Beasts of No Nation.
