This Sunday, February 28th, is the Oscars and I think that it is important to tune in and take note of the lack of diversity in both the nominees and the winners. I think that it is a good thing that Chris Rock is hosting this year because he is known to bring up controversial matters although of course in a joking manner. Also I think making him the host was sort of a defense by the Academy awards people, so that they could say that they had an African American host just in case the winning circle holds little to no diversity. On the other side of the debate, it could’ve just be a coincidence last year; although, it doesn’t seem likely. Black representation has been lacking for almost every year since the Oscars have been a thing. I also find it inspiring that the some black entertainers have decided to boycott the Oscars because of the lack of representation that they get from the Academy.
