Famed film director and honoree John Singleton was presented with the 2016 AAFCA Legacy Award presented by Courtney B. Vance.

During his acceptance speech, John talked about how mainstream inclusion isn’t that important in the long run and how black people are winning despite exclusion. He touched on the #OscarsSoWhite controversy saying,

“We’ve been fighting for inclusion ever since the chains have been put on. Sometimes when you make such an emphasis of inclusion you lose sight of the big picture, you lose sight of what the big end game is. In terms of pop culture in this country, we've already won the end game. It doesn’t matter if a certain organization, whether it's the Academy, or another organization excludes our black artists. We know that what we do no matter what is going to propagate over time. It’s going to change not only our own people but everybody else.”

We agree!
