Jada Pinkett Smith releases video on Facebook about the Oscars and black empowerment. "Maybe it's time for us to acknowledge that if we love and respect ourselves in the way in which we are asking others to do that that is the place of true power." "Maybe it's time we pull back our resources and we put them back into our communities, and we make programs for ourselves that acknowledge us in ways that we see fit, that are just as good as the so-called mainstream." "We can no longer beg for the love, acknowledgement or respect of any group."
