Golden words from Jay Smooth on The Oscars and learning the craft of being good [VIDEO at link]:
"… we are imperfect humans who constantly generate imperfections. And that means that no matter how good you think you are, you can't just wake up every day assuming that you're a good, fair, well-rounded person.
Being a good person has to be a craft that you practice every day.
And when you see these broader patterns of exclusion reflected on The Oscar stage, we've got to recognize that. Not as the product of monsters or cretins, but as a status quo perpetuated by people just like me and you, making hundreds of decisions every day where we assume that we're good and that's good enough, instead of committing to the practice. To learning the craft of being good."
