Last night Chris Rock took on the Oscars lack of diversity issue by joking about lynchings and bringing out Stacey Dash...
Last month actress Jada Pinkett-Smith called for an Oscars boycott after no minority actors received nominations this year [click here if you missed that].
In his Oscar's opening monologue Chris Rock joked that Jada Pinkett-Smith boycotting the Oscars was like him boycotting Rihanna's panties in that he's never been invited.
Rock also joked that the diversity issue has been going on since the Oscars began and that the reason Black people never boycotted in its 88 year history is because we had more important things to worry about like our grandmother hanging from a tree instead of who was nominated for Best Cinematography.
Making things more awkward Chris brought out Stacey Dash introducing her as The Academy's new director of diversity in a joke that fell flat.
