Answer: Then you don’t want to be a writer.
Ok… so I wasn’t like a super fan of American Crime like the rest of the world was. I actually didn’t watch it until a few weeks ago. I know, I know. How can I be a TV fanatic and not be up to date on what’s trending…crucify me later. Anywho, I only took the time out to watch for three reasons: 1. John Ridley extending his deal with ABC (must’ve impressed someone) 2. Regina King wining an Emmy for her guest star role (which should’ve been a supporting role because she was on EVERY episode once introduced. Lol) 3. A friend of mine has a small role in the first episode of Season 2 and I felt like I had to watch Season 1 first (yep, I’m that kind of TV person).
Alright, soooo… I talk about diversity a lot. BECAUSE IT MATTERS. But I don’t really know where I stand on the #OscarssoWhite issue. I’m really only writing about it because it’s trending and I should have an opinion. So, I’ll make it up as I go. Here goes nothing.
