It’s time to get some things straight about #OscarsSoWhite

I am not so cynical to believe that in the absence of diversity, racism or sexism, or ageism, or ableism is the default. However without a set of checks and balances, without a true diversity of opinion or experience, there is no way to ensure that every film is given equal weight and consideration and that the cream of the crop will rise to the recognition it deserves.
