Where's the clip of the black kid smashing up the H&M store?

Still searching for that clip, sir.

However, here's an image that was taken 6 days ago of Africans protesting the H&M print ad at the retail building:

That's it!  Those are stills from the video!

Republicans can only destroy.  They cannot lead or build. Trumpism is a death cult.

I wish them very well.  They can really grow! 

Hard Choices / Re: Hard Choices: Lauryn Hill v Mary J Blige
« on: January 21, 2018, 07:03:52 am »
Lauryn at her peak was a brilliant artist who could have had it all.  But she thew it all away.  Tragic.  Even if she had the output of D'Angelo, this would be more of a fair fight.  D's product flow is spare, but boy when he drops something it's strong! And he's got music released in this century.

Meanwhile, Mary consistently beats the odds and has assembled a great body of work.  My Mary playlist is quite long.

What did Lauryn throw away exactly?

She chose Motherhood over her career and principle over commerce.

You really think Lauryn Hill couldn't have put out a series of half-baked albums playing on her gravitas and cashed in?
So you can't be a mother and a professional?  You can't be a mother and a great artist?

From the way she has spoken about it they ALWAYS wanted Lauryn to elevate her career over her family. To the point they suggested she ABORT her first child. I think that sentiment alone speaks to the environment she was functioning in.

Can you be a "GREAT" mother and a great artist? I've never heard or seen it to be honest. You could have a channel full of biopics and TV specials that would attest to this.
Diana Ross is both.  I've met several of her kids, and I was impressed by how well balanced they were.

I think there are many, many successful working moms.  My mother was one. 

If she wanted to focus on being a mom that's a fine choice, my wife did the same, but that was not her only option.

Good articles. 

I didn't see the movie, but I read the script and passed.  This outcome is not surprising.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I don't know if there is much you can say but I am curious to know what was it about the script that made you take a pass on it?
Love the idea of a female action movie, I've wanted to do one for a long time.  And Taraji is a giant star talent.  But the script was so conventional.

Love this director and love those books.  Flawed tho the Lynch film was, it was still incredible.  Now that folks are used to cinematic epics that stretch over multiple films, it could be told properly.

I turned some of these sentences into my profile signature.
Wow, that comment really pops when it's used as a pull quote.  I didn't think the statement was that controversial until read it back. Oh well....

I'm sick of wearing glasses.  Had them since 3rd grade.

But I don't know how contacts would work, exactly.  Do you "feel" them throughout the day?  What really can happen if you accidentally forget to take them out before you go to sleep?  How easy are they to lose?
I couldn't use contacts because I"m terrible about putting them in my eye, but once in, I love them.  I don't feel them.

Wow, great question! 

HEROES FOR HIRE (with Misty and Coleen)

This would be EPIC! Especially Black Avengers team. Though if it was too on the nose, i always thought the Ultimates could be the official "Black Avengers" Team without actually calling it that.

Make this happen somehow! BP would be better used in Milestone, where folks would have been capitialized on the BP movie hype

Yes, they kind of half did it. They had three black characters, but didn't want to get "too black".  I think my Panther run traumatized a lot of folks with its explicit blackness.  But you can't win unless you commit to something.
