I believe this particular issue is extremely relevant in today’s media. Especially considering the recent controversy with #OscarsSowhite and, as you mentioned, Beyoncé’s ‘Formation’ video. The increasing struggle of contemporary media to effectively acknowledge race issues is one that needs to be addressed. Whether it is in the entertainment industry, or in more serious social justice issues such as the tragedies that sparked the Black Lives Matter movement, it is important to bring race to the forefront of discussions. Therefore, we need blog posts like yours to shed light on these prevalent issue and to continue the discourse if the media doesn’t.
