#OscarsSoWhite: Jada Pinkett Smith Considers Boycotting The Academy Awards

As you may have seen (or read), this year’s pool of Academy Awards nominees are super white.

The Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences didn’t nominate a single person of color for any of the major acting categories, including Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor.

Jada Pinkett Smith took to Twitter to share her thoughts on the matter, which may have been prompted by her husband Will Smith getting snubbed for his role as Dr. Bennet Omalu in Concussion.

What do you think? Should people of color boycott The Oscars?
