Smith was wrong to slap Rock, in public or in private. And Rock and ABC were wrong for approving the joke. But commentators are also wrong for treating this incident the same as they would had all three people involved been White.
#OscarsSoWhite or #WhiteOscars has been a widely discussed issue since the nominees were announced in January.
