You Can't Handle the Truth Appreciation Thread

I'm not sure if a thread had been started for this already.. HEF heads, check out monthly issues of Ebony magazine, it's got a one-page comic strip by Mr. Reggie and Denys Cowan.. making some poignant commentary about contemporary politics/culture and in "Flashback" telling an intrigung action story..

This latest issue (Jump the Broom cast cover), the protagonist chats with his wife about reality-TV women vs. music video girls.. and we get another glimpse of the hero's peril..

I'm waiting for next month.. wonder just how the hero ended up with somebody trying to strangle him in a trainyard?

Just got the April Music issue of Ebony with Jill Scott on the cover. The cover article is by dream hampton. There's an article on Uptown Records, an article on the history of NWA, and The Hottest Music of 2011 by Toure. And of course the next installment of You Can't Handle The Truth.

That is to say, there's stuff in Ebony that I actually want to read. How'd that happen?

Ms. Jill Scott looks like a completely different person in that EBONY shoot (cover).  I almost didn't recognize her.

Makes the imagery of Ororo  she voices in Black Panther: The Animated Series much more vivid.

"Tell him it's...   Ororo."   Calling T'Challa long distance on the phone.




I love it when she says it that way. ;D
