Black people are revisionists when it comes to Oscar history.  Denzels first Oscar was for his role in Glory, a fantastic film in which he was amazing.  Whoopi Goldberg won for Ghost. Morgan Freeman won for Million Dollar Baby.  Jamiee for Ray.  Forest for Last King of Scotland.  Cuba for Jerry McGuire.  Louis Gosset Jr. for An Officer & A Gentleman. It's actually the OPPOSITE of what you're claiming.

For acting black people have only won about 15 Oscars. Maybe 5 of them are for the type of roles you describe. So my dear, it is entirely the point.

If you believe there is enough diversity in black roles I wont argue with you, but to assume ppl who dont are somehow ashamed/not interested in their history is a reach

What I will say is that black women tend to have to play sh*ttier roles but that may be also be sexism combined w/racism etc.  Women in Hollywood usually have it rough.

Not "it maybe" though. There's no doubt in my mind. Black women have it way worse. The only ones that have it rougher are Asians. But then again, they're quite present behind the scenes (editing, costumes,directing etc.)

Edit: Have it rougher in terms of representation onscreen, let's be clear.

hmmm.....interesting idea but Pharrell doesn't seem to capitulate to public opinion easily.  He seems to do whatever he wants.
