Basic Black: Hollywood Star Power and Politics

Arts & Culture | Black Boston | Politics

January 22, 2016

This week on Basic Black: the clash of Hollywood star power and politics. We take a look at Bill Clinton and Bill Cosby: just as Cosby was being arraigned on charges of sexual assault, Clinton’s well-documented sexual assault allegations and extramarital affairs have re-emerged, following Hillary Clinton on the presidential campaign trail. But is there any difference in the way both men are being viewed in the media… should there be a difference? Also on the show, actress Jada Pinkett Smith has called for a boycott of the Oscars to protest the lack of diverse nominees, but others argue that boycotting the box office makes a bigger statement.

(Note: The creator of #OscarSoWhite is April Reign.)
