In 2015 April Reign started the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag to raise even more awareness of the Oscar's racism. In the last two weeks I have been contemplating about various parts of academe, education, and accessibility that are really so or too an inequitable thing and it has been really upsetting to watch the sheer lack of acknowledgment, and actively avoiding any reflection on how there are real real issues that need to be addressed, let me give you some examples.
