DAILYKENN.com -- The Oscars has a long history of peers recognizing peers for superb work in the entertainment industry.
When awards were distributed this year, the absence of black entertainers was apparent to those wishing to exploit race.
O'Shea Jackson, Sr., known as Ice Cube, was not one to exploit the situation. Rather, he noted that movies are made for fans, not for the industry.
“We don’t do movies for the industry. We do movies for the fans, for the people,” he said. “If the industry gives you a trophy or not, or pats you on the back or not, it’s nice, but it’s not something you should dwell on.” He added, “We got accolades from all levels. We got so much praise for the movie.” — newsninja2012.com
