Any Day Now…?

21 Sep

The sad thing: Troy Davis was murdered by a violently anti-black country.

The tragic thing: This brings us no closer to revolution. Taking someone’s life is supposed to be the last straw… and they’ve been doing it for four hundred years. What has to happen for us to start crying out and demanding our freedom? Apparently not psychological abuse, not imprisonment, not rape, not murder… I implore you, Black people, GET ANGRY. Death should not be the only way a black person can rest in peace.

Quotation of the Day.

10 Jul

“It is a white, petty-bourgeois Anarchism that cannot relate to the people. As a Black person, I am not interested in your Anarchism. I am not interested in individualistic, self-serving, selfish liberation for you and your white friends. What I care about is the liberation of my people.” -Pedro Ribeiro

WILLIAM MORRIS AGENCY HAS DROPPED MEL GIBSON

In 2006, then partner and now CEO of WME, Ari Emmanuel, said in a piece he wrote: “I wish Mel Gibson well in dealing with his alcoholism, but alcoholism does not excuse racism and anti-Semitism. Now we know the truth. And no amount of publicist-approved contrition can paper it over. People in the entertainment community, whether Jew or gentile, need to demonstrate that they understand how much is at stake in this by professionally shunning Mel Gibson and refusing to work with him, even if it means a sacrifice to their bottom line. There are times in history when standing up against bigotry and racism is more important than money.”

Apparently, the only reason Mel was kept on as a client after his anti-semetic remarks in 2006 is because he was represented by Ed Limato, vice president of William Morris Agency, who kicked the bucket on June 3rd. Looks like Emmanuel fired him as soon as he could. Good for him.

…I have a naggin little question, though. I wonder if the remarks in 2006 had been about “dirty negroes” and not “greedy jews” would Ari Emmanuel have bothered to write about it, and would Mel Gibson be without representation now? Something to ponder…

Dave LaChappelle Uses Black Man As Pedestal

6 Jul


Lady Gaga’s photoshoot (2010) with LaChappelle proves to be as unoriginal as her music. The “dutiful black slave risking his life for Miss” thing has so been done.

And yes, that’s Kanye.

And now it’s time to play…

These chicks got some classy cooters. No meat curtains!

Oh SNAP!


Gina Gershon is so good, she’s both a whore AND a bitch!

I have to give a shout out to my favorite character, Molly.

She’s the black girl (adorable!) who lets that nasty wainch, Polly, stay with her. She’s punished, of course, for being smart, black, and respectable, by being brutally raped by three men; including Andrew Carver, a singer she idolizes and innocently has a drink with. After she is slapped and punched in the nose, her panties are ripped off and we get to see the whole bloody mess, including a shot of Andrew licking the blood off of Molly’s face while she’s getting raped from behind by one of his bouncers. Polly kicks the shit out of Andrew at the end, but unless she gave him “a broken nose and vaginal tears”, we ain’t square.

Don’t worry, Molly. One day we’ll have black female leads with sexual autonomy. YOU WILL BE AVENGED!!
