The Oscar Awards, presented on March 27, 2022, proved to be quite an interesting event with some unexpected turns early in the night. Everyone’s attention is on the interaction between Will Smith and Chris Rock, which ended in a verbal and physical argument that left celebrities with their jaws dropped.

Chris Rock, a well-known comedian, was going about his speech when he offended two particular people in the crowd, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, with his joke concerning Jada’s recent diagnosis of alopecia. His joke was in reference to G.I. Jane, which he repeated upon his physical interaction with Will Smith.

Upon hearing Rock’s Joke, Will Smith appeared to laugh slightly while his wife shook her head in disapproval. Smith, sensing her uneasiness, proceeded to switch his mood, becoming defensive over his wife (despite their rocky past and her cheating history).

Smith, outraged, screamed at Rock to remove Jada’s name from his mouth, all while keeping a straight face. Rock assured him that it was merely a joke, as a comedian does, but Smith had other plans.

Smith marched up onto the stage where Rock stood and paused for only a brief moment. Will Smith slapped Chris Rock across his face for the entire audience to see, leaving the audience in complete disbelief. Smith immediately returned to his seat in front of a shocked group of celebrities.

Although Smith has since apologized to Rock for his unruly behavior, it is unknown whether or not Smith’s Best Actor award will be revoked. However, this interaction has caused an uproar over how to handle the situation.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
