Today (January 21st) on Good Morning America, Will Smith confirmed what we all kind of assumed, after his wife’s rant about the white washed Oscars he is going to stand by her side and not attend the Oscars either. Will explains that it is about a deeper social conflict in this world rather than just the Oscars. He goes on to explain that it has nothing to do with the fact that he wasn’t nominated for his role in ‘Concussion’.
Check out the interview.
I am very torn about this issue because should there be more diversity in Hollywood? I absolutely believe it should be. There should be more strong women roles, people of color should have more serious roles. My only thing with the Oscars is that the nominations are voted on by their peers. Actors vote on who should be nominated. If you are not nominated it means that your peers, other actors, don’t believe that you have done a good enough job. That is where I am getting lost.
Is there a race barrier in this country that is becoming more and more apparent? Yes, I think that the media is playing into it as well.
This issue though? This issue of the Oscars? Ricky Gervais said it best, no one cares if you win an award, only you care if you win the award.
There are real issues happening in our country right now. Children are dying in Flint because the government decided they didn’t deserve clean water, veterans are living on the streets because of mental health issues and the cost of health care.
So I stand here and say shame on you Will Smith, Spike Lee, Jada Smith, all of you have such a platform where you can say so much and influence so many people. Tell people to donate to a cause, don’t be bitter because you didn’t get nominated for a movie that didn’t get great reviews to begin with.
I also didn’t hear anyone complaining when they were nominated in certain categories, and were the only person of color to be nominated.

I loved this post because I do this it is important to listen to. Honestly is the Oscars whitewashed? Yes. It is. In Jada’s rant she talked about how this is a shame, which it is. The one thing that people need to remember is that other actors and actresses were the people who voted for these categories. It isn’t simply a group of old, white men deciding who gets these awards. Actors and actresses of all shapes, colors, and sizes get together and decide.
Jada has more opportunity than most actors out there because of who she is married too and the money that they have. As Janet said, people are dying yet you want to complain about the Oscars? Will has been nominated twice for an Oscar and has been nominated four times for the Golden Globes.
If you got this far let’s donate to all of the kids being poisoned in Flint, I think that is more important than the Oscars and who was nominated.
Check out the video below and let me know if you agree with Jada or Janet.

What in the actual fuck is going on with Will Smith’s children? You would think that his kids would be awesome and funny, no they suck. Look at this kid wearing a white batman outfit to an incredible Italian wedding. Listen bro you got invited to one of the most talked about weddings of the year, and you wear this?
I wonder what Kim was thinking when she turned around to walk down the isle for the third time and saw Jaden standing there in a batman outfit. I am surprised Kanye didn’t punch him right there. Like who things that wearing this is acceptable? Jaden, the only person allowed to wear white at a wedding is the fucking bride you ass hate. Also if you are going to wear the batman suit, wear the original bad ass one not one that looks like those sheet ghost costumes everyone has had to wear as a child.
Jaden is a deep soul though. Remember his deep tweets about life. My favorite one was probably “Not sure if mirrors can be real if your eyes are not”. I mean are they real? I don’t even know now!
Will and Jada, get your son and teach him some things.
No seriously, does this kid even go to school? He really needs to be taught some things.
I have a question. Why the fuck did Will Smith need to marry this woman and have terrible off spring with her? I can’t fucking stand Jada and I don’t even really know who she is. I know that she married my main man Will and they had a few kids. Now her children, that is for a different post, I can’t stand them but Jada, look at yourself. There is no way that you actually think this hairstyle his flattering right? I mean there have been reports of Will cheating on you and you step out looking like this? I wouldn’t blame him for sleeping with someone else, you look terrifying. Stop trying to have the same haircut as your daughter!
Jada honestly though, look in the mirror, look at your choices, look at your hair. Take a deep breath and just cry. I am sure you are going through emotions since your kids are annoying as shit and your husband is possibly cheating. It will all be okay.
Honestly though isn’t she just like the mom in Mean Girls? “I’m not a regular mom, I’m a cool mom!” no, no you are not.
