Still not over it. I'm still excited about last night and honestly don't care to hear any complaints or conspiracy theories about the mixup. I don't wanna read any Hoteps or bitter ass women complaining because a "gay movie" won. I'm just ecstatic that a most deserving film starring black actors, directed by a black director and adapted from play written by a gay black man, won the biggest awards in Hollywood. And added some awkward drama to the #oscars award show! #bestpicture#bestadaptedscreenplay#bestsupportingactor
This woman is a force. No one makes me cry every awards show like she does. And I'll tell you, the #bestsupportingactress category was much tighter than the mens category. If i celebrate her win or #MahershalaAli it's not simply because they're black, but it's because they are excellent and worthy and being awarded when awards aren't often handed out to people like them. People like us. #ViolaDavis#excellence#fences#oscars#blackexcellence
And just like that, im a puddle of tears. The current presidents administration is doing everything it can to take away from as many Americans #civilrights as it can. I'm horrified every day. I'm not often speechless but the assault #transrights and to native Americans via the #dapl have left me without words. We are all black. We are all gay. We are all Native American, we are all trans, we are all American.
