This will be my shortest “story” to date. There has been a lot of talk about how Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars. My take is that it was all staged. The Oscars ceremony has been seeing steadily declining ratings. It has also been accused of being too white. Therefore they manufactured some drama. I wouldn’t even be surprised if they made Will Smith’s participation in the fiasco a condition for his Oscar award. Great acting, Will!

I would summarise the entire event this way: “A negro strikes another negro at an event that is primarily attended by, profited from, and organised by white people. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences adopts the strategy of American sports leagues to escape sinking ratings.”
