My Video #NoLatinoOscars
#OscarsSoWhite is Business as Usual
A couple days ago I posted on #OscarsSoWhite, although questions continued to nag me about how apologists for the Oscars continue to normalize rhetoric that erases the accomplishments of people of color. So I composed a video that answers some questions and provokes others.
I look at some of the statistics in my book Reclaiming Poch@ Pop regarding the representation of Latinos in the media, and it's unfortunate that this year's "so white" Oscars is indicative of standard practices in video games, news, and film.
