And the Sherry but you as a black actress yes or should I not Wainwright allowed the number one movie and it makes it. Yeah on this problem with the lack of diversity at damaging. It's really Jada Pinkett absent in not only you know variety even put out the cover of their magazine if you can see it it's a shame on us that's all white Oscar. I fell as like black actress I think that we do need diversity in the 6000 members that are voting. Because if you got 79% are white the average age of 63 like Michael Cain said. He didn't even know if aegis Alpa have been nominated so chances are. He didn't watch straight out of Compton. And let me tell you why straight out of Compton why you need diversity because there was that there was a part in straight out of Compton for those who sought or O'Shea Jackson who played ice cube. He was explaining apology a mighty. Why the police messed with young black man so much it was then they went outside. And sit to show what happened the police came knocked them all on the ground but mom on the ground and not just cut taker our drink out of his hand. Thin ice cube O'Shea Jackson junior win an inmate after police and it was such a brilliant powerful moment it and then a lot of questions. Michael McCain was the average age is sixty drama gonna add single out mr. Kaye.

Boycotting the outlet when the elderly has been big mid sort of meat but there's nobody that has reached the pinnacle of what will be is down to appease you know career she's good eke out a winner so nobody has reached what he's done so it's not the norm so I think that you know there are a lot of movies belt. Dealt you don't there's a lot of we believe that you bet people. Where that the film resonates with a but I also want to say people keep saying you know the start our own things start on think this what the Oscars best for a woman like me when Octavia Spencer won Octavia Spencer won the Oscar so they keep initiative right roles for her she gets to do whatever she wants which busy all the time. So when she can't duel movie. Like Jane of the joneses which is a dramatic leap they said well what about Sherri shepherd Sherri shepherd just did a dramatic lead in a movie because back taking a Spencer was busy so can we get the benefit the yeah. Sloppy seconds any day.
