I don't watch the Oscars, but I'm glad you wrote this. Whatever color, Will Smith was totally right to slap and yell at Chris Rock. Some things are not funny. I probably would have punched him and we would have been rolling on the floor in a good fight. But it is sad, and you know I am an old white man, but my race will continue to misjudge non-white people. I applaud you for your writing.

Wow, Poppy, this is really extraordinary. You engage yourself with these difficult, traumatic issues, and you have a wonderful way to parse this picture into its pieces, yet pull it together for the whole picture. Analytical, yet emotional, and... in spite of what you have endured, I do not feel hate from your writing. This is very good. Keep it up.
