Jada Pinkett Smith Speaks on No African Americans Being Nominated for the Oscars.
I saw this coming several years. It amazes me to see how the "Industry" publicly degrades African Americans in music, movies, television and especially "Reality TV shows." Yet in my opinion, people agree (by contractual agreement) to publicly degrade themselves.
Although "Acting" is your chosen profession, your "actions" (acting) are being amplified. Leaving lasting impressions in the minds of the audience.
The "Entertainment Industry" as a whole, is systematically plugged into the hearts and minds of our technologically advanced society. It has become one of the most effective means to deliver propaganda, thus programming our minds on a national (and international) scale.
As far as defecting or Boycotting "The Industry", I say, Jada, Congratulations on regaining your Personal Freedom!! ;)
During my 20 years of service in the Navy, they taught us the Art of "Competitiveness" (defined as Courage and Commitment). They even honored us with: "Cute" colorful ribbons and embellishments to distinguish our achievements. Awarded us certificates of achievement, signed by senior officers or politicians to make us feel important. They also hosted grandeur ceremonies to further cater to our egos, along with lucrative pay incentives, enticing our Spirits to want to be apart of such an occult organization. Yet the overall training and experience made me feel like a controlled puppet. I was trained since bootcamp to "fall-in" to what I describe as a well-organized "single file line." Now that I've gotten over certain emotional aspects of my horrific-mind-controlling experience in the Navy, I've regained my personal "artistic" freedom and see the world through a different set of lenses. I digress...
I've always admired and respected Jada for her candidness and professional choices in the roles she's played. I'm glad she's speaking out; but in an industry where black folks will do almost anything to "Pay the Bills" she talking to a brick wall. Yet I wish her the best in all her future endeavors!!
