Now that we have all settled in after seeing what was the the #OscarssoWhite show, we now come back to "reality". It depends on what you see that reality to be. I know I was having a handful of conversations via twitter. Speaking out on all my personal thoughts which was then spilled over onto facebook. I was going back and forth between platforms and emotions. [Personally I was happy that Chris Rock could make everyone cringe a bit.] But I lived the most for was the faces, of confusion and uncertainty of whether to laugh, clap or just having a blank stare. Either way, during the reformation and deformation of the Oscars, I read a tweet by my friend about twenty minutes into the show. A short film that everyone should watch called "Black Movie Night". Being the multi-tasking, A.D.D. girl that I am, I began to watch and was captivated.
This short film describes every thought, emotion, and agitated feeling that I have ever felt in life period. Yes the movie is talking about Hollywood and the arts but it's something to be said about the world. I want to be the artist that's not only appreciated by those who look, walk, and talk like me but greeted and celebrated by those who do not. It's not wrong to want more, I am just trying to figure out how can I make a change in order to get more.
