Pinkett Smith advocates for the people of color to lift themselves up. "Begging for acknowledgment diminishes dignity," she continues.
Though she does not advocate for a mass boycott, she says she will not be supporting the Oscars this year. "I will not be at the Academy Awards and I won't be watching, but I cannot think of a better man to do the job than you."
