Regina King wasted no time letting the Oscars crowd know that had the Derek Chauvin verdict went the other way her attire would’ve been completely different.
I have to be honest… if things have gone differently this past week in Minneapolis… I might’ve traded in my heels for marching boots.
Now… I know that a lot of you people at home want to reach for your remote when you feel like Hollywood is preaching to you.
But, as a mother of a black son I know the fear that so many live with, and no amount of fame and fortune changes that.
The video begins outside of the Union Station venue with Regina grabbing an Oscar and making her way inside.
Once she gets to the stage, she welcomes the audience to the 93rd Oscars and talks a little about how rough the year has been, and then she jumps into the Chauvin verdict.
Watch the video below:
Regina looked beautiful, and I am happy she used the Oscars platform to share her stance on police brutality and social injustice in America.
