A Letter to Jay-Z from Baz Luhrmann, Director of The Great Gatsby.

Lupita Nyong’o wins an Oscar for portraying a real life slave, and the first thing she did was thank Patsy for her inspiration.
Jared Leto wins an Oscar for portraying a trans woman, and doesn’t mention trans women at all.
I think the point makes itself.
To those of you who think representation isn’t important, Lupita Nyong’o inspired a young black girl to not bleach her skin.
I repeat, Lupita Nyong’o inspired a young black girl to not bleach her skin.
Lupita received a letter from a young black girl that said she was about to buy Dencia’s Whitenicious cream to lighten her skin when Lupita appeared and saved her.

Representation DOES matter. Seeing Lupita onscreen can save and bring hope to the lives of many young black girls.
