So the Oscars are now scrambling to find prominent Black actors to be award presenters for this year’s telecast. But, really, why are the #OscarsSoWhite? I pose 5 questions to Hollywood in my new USA TODAY Op-ed, “The Oscars Can Do Better.” http://usat.ly/1nLHGLn
Five questions on race and talent for Hollywood's consideration.

Countries much smaller than ours, with fewer resources, manage to provide their citizens access to an equal high quality education. Why can’t we? http://bit.ly/CWBA2016

Across America, too many Black citizens live adjacent to toxic garbage dumps. Learn how one South LA man is fighting to have them removed. #CWBA2016 http://ow.ly/X3Osx

Despite progress made in the era of Obama, African Americans have yet to achieve full equality in our democracy. We can perhaps glimpse that America, but we are not there yet. Historic events have given some the hope that our nation has finally emerged from its long history of racism. Yet, the unsettling truth is that plenty of work remains to be done. #CWBA2016 http://ow.ly/WXvjy

In the richest nation in the history of the world, a sad reality exists: Black children still struggle to gain access to a good education, and Black wealth continues to evaporate. The link between education and economic opportunity is well documented. But, tragically, Black fellow citizens continue to come up short on both ends of the stick. Malcolm X was right, “Education is our passport to the future.” But what happens when one is miseducated, under or unemployed, and lacking generational wealth to imagine or ensure a future in which he or she can flower and flourish? http://ow.ly/X0EoB

The real story about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s final year now available in paperback. Read how America turned against MLK in his last year -- almost three-quarters of the American public, and almost sixty percent of Black people. http://bit.ly/TSDOAK
