F*ck the Oscars and Watch These Seven Films Instead

1. Instead of The Help Watch Pariah
One is about white people fixing racism. The other is about a young  black woman wrestling with her sexuality. One is basically the only  story Hollywood is comfortable telling when it comes to race and the  other is a wonderful film that will hit you in the gut and will never be  made in the Hollywood because it is about a person of color (strike  one!) who isn’t in poverty (strike two!) who is gay (strike three you’re  out!).
How wonderful would it have been if Pariah (also directed and written by a woman!) had gotten anywhere near the same Oscar love as The Help?

    Oscars were a while back, but still relevant. I’ve seen a few of the alternates suggested, all top-notch.
