    The part of the audience all joining in unison about the receipt is the most genuine part in show biz history. If anyone ever has doubts that blacks feel they are treated differently that is your proof there...unscripted. If you doubt the polls that should convince you.

    I live in East Kentucky Appalachia where there is hardly any people of color here. And all I knew about POC was from my mom who grew up in a different region in the Jim Crow era and who had many friends of color and to sadly had to hide that from locals so that her and her friends could be protected from violence. And we are part Native American.

      @Regina Jenkins If we were all color blind then we would be blind to the elephant in the room. Color shouldn't matter as to how you perceive an individual or in terms of what kind of person they are but unfortunately color does matter because this country was founded on racism and all black people sterotyped and painted in a negative light.
