Jada Pinkett Smith is mad (but not mad) at the Golden Globes for omitting Girls Trip

Jada Pinkett Smith is mad at the Golden Globes for not recognizing Girls Trip. Well, she says she's not but obviously she is. Not-upset people don't do twitter rants. Last year in 2016 (I think) she was mad at the Oscars for not nominating her husband, Will Smith, for Concussion and called for a boycott of the Academy Awards. Will she be calling for a boycott of the Golden Globes?

My take

I feel like I've already talked about this in a recent article. Read it! Gabrielle Union had some-what similar complaints, but hers were more about the financial aspect of Black films. Both woman are basically saying that Black Hollywood isn't getting the respect it deserves from regular Hollywood. My question to Jada is: How many Niggas watch the Golden Globes? Are we really watching that? And I'm being serious. Like, I really need some stats. 

Why care?

Why do we keep trying to sit at these people table. They don't want us there! We can't sit with them! But Do we really want to? Do most everyday black people really care about the Golden Globes and the Oscars. I don't. I bet if they did there would probably be a nomination for Girls Trip. Yeah, I know it's not suppose to be based on rating, but I bet it still is. I'm sure they said they'll just have Tiffany Haddish present and call it a day. Boom. Quota reached.

But like I said in my other article (Which Jada obviously didn't read. Shame on her!) we need to build our own shit. Since Girls Trip was written, directed, produced, and starred "black" Americans, should they even care about recognition from white people? It should be more like "Oh! y'all Golden Globe white people like the movie too? Awesome!". Instead of " OMG why won't they talk to us!"

But whatever. I'm just a blogger typing in his office/closet. Here are some of her tweets. While claiming she's not mad, Jada decided to type a fucking term paper worth of tweets so I'm not embedding all of them. I'm sure one of your favorite sites will though. TRADER! JK. 

And I get representation is important but is this about representation or is it about acceptance? 

What's your take? Leave a comment!!!

 

Dear Black Entertainers, You're going to have to Sacrifice!!

Meaning, sure Gabby, Do Bad Boys 3. Get that check. But maybe you and other actors, directors, and producers should be spending more time building a black Hollywood than participating and complaining about the white one. To be honest, black Hollywood may never match White Hollywood. White wealth is powerful. But wouldn't it be better to have more black actors and actresses employed than to have a couple of really rich ones? Wouldn't it be cool to have the money from our black blockbusters bounce back into other black film projects?

Is Post Malone Wrong or White?

Before y'all kill me. We know that there is so much more to hiphop than what is blasted on the radio. We know there's a Kendrick and a J.cole and a Big Krit. But the majority of the popular stuff in hip hop (including him) that's played all over the radio is just what he said it is. It lacks lyrics, emotion, and substance. Don't get me wrong, it's fun. It serves  a purpose. But it's everywhere. We know that there's a ton of talent that's underground. We know that there are still great lyricist in hip hop but this era is dominated by party trap music.

Apparently African Americans ain't African: 8 reasons

So instead of Europeans bringing millions upon millions of slaves to America to start slavery, they instead came over here and enslaved the people that were already here. How does that sound? Crazy, right? It blew my mind when I first heard these accusations. This has seriously blown my mind more than anything in my life. But I will try really hard (but prolly not hard enough) to explain.

8 things Lyft and UBER drivers absolutely hate!!

So this list probably has a lot more to do with what I hate. However, I think a lot of lyft drivers and UBER drivers will agree with me.  I've also noticed that a lot of black millennials, mainstream American millennials, urban millennials, and.........millennials are ride-share drivers. I'm sure y'all will get a kick out of this too.

Twenty-Thirties: Where are my tattoos?

Somehow I made it all the way to the age of 31 without getting any tattoos. Commitment issues?? I don't know. But now I'm really starting to question whether me not having any tattoos says something about me as a person. Does it say something bad or good? Am I a commit-a-phobe or am I cautious? Am I a prude or am I safe? Too safe?
