    I’m tired of these bios too but if anything we need more black directors and producers so we can tell more diverse stories.

    They’re right . However , like Jada P Smith , MBJ’s timing is suspect and his motives are bias . Had he gotten an Oscar , he’d gladly stick with the status quo . He often comes off as hypocritical , and his stance has zero strong hold until he truly proves that his motives are purely sincere .
