Quotes from the news wire:
I got ta be honest. I think one of the things that I've realized is that I don't know Will at all, i feel like there's a layer that you get to, life gets busy and you create these stories in your head, and then you hold onto these stories and that is your idea of your partner ; that's not who your partner is.
Will and I are in the process of him taking the time to learn to love himself, me taking the time to learn to love Pinkett Smith and us building a friendship along the way, let me tell you, that's been something, to be married to somebody 20-some odd years and realize I don't know you and you don't know me and also realizing there's an aspect of yourself you don't know either.
The Academy has the right to acknowledge whomever they choose, to invite whomever they choose and now I think that it's our responsibility, now, to make the change, maybe it is time that we pull back our resources and we put them back into our communities and our programs and we make programs for ourselves that acknowledge us in ways that we see fit, that are just as good as the so-called 'mainstream' ones.
Today is Martin Luther King's birthday, and I can't help but ask the question: Is it time that people of color recognize how much power, influence, that we have amassed, that we no longer need to ask to be invited anywhere? begging for acknowledgement, or even asking, diminishes dignity and diminishes power. And we are a dignified people, and we are powerful.
