Chris Rock

Dear Editor,

A Black woman from Scotland will have no influence I am sure but I cannot believe Chris Rock is even considering going ahead with hosting the Oscars.

If White people want to give each other trophies for being white and it makes them happy - let them get on with it.

Surely he can see (if the chairwoman cannot) that he is just the usual fig leaf the white elite use when their entrenched privilege starts to feel a bit naked?

Come on Mr. Rock. Put your ego aside and WALK AWAY.

Yours sincerely

Amanda Baker
