There has been an uproar since no actor of color was nominated for an Oscar Award. #OscarsSoWhite and #OscarsStillSoWhite trended on social media last week after a number of black actors, including Idris Elba and Michael B. Jordan were overlooked by academy voters.
Several actors and directors weighed in on the snub. After initially expressing her disappointment over the lack of diversity in the nominations, Jada posted a video on Martin Luther King Day saying “we must stand in our power.”
“Today is Martin Luther King’s birthday, and I can’t help but ask the question: Is it time that people of color recognize how much power, influence, that we have amassed, that we no longer need to ask to be invited anywhere? Begging for acknowledgement, or even asking, diminishes dignity and diminishes power. And we are a dignified people, and we are powerful. So let’s let the Academy do them, with all grace and love. And let’s do us, differently.”
