Congratulations to the deserving actors and actresses who took home the coveted EMMY Award for excellence in television acting.
Viola Davis became the first black actress to win an Emmy in television history for her role in the drama series How To Get Away With Murder.
Uzo Aduba won an Emmy award for her role in Orange is the New Black.
And Regina King was honored for playing a Muslim woman in the ABC series American Crime.
Great achievements all. But I don't know see why it's such a big deal to black people that we win awards created by and for other races. Do we feel validated when we are recognized for our achievements by other races? I shake my head at the black folks who don't take pride in similar recognition by black awards shows. I've yet to see a black person cry and shake when they win an NAACP Image Award or BET or Essence Awards.
Congratulation to the wincers.
