    I think it's on us to create our own stake in the game. While I am no fan of Tyler Perry's movie he is a trailblazer for black's films becoming almost a billionaire off it independently and Byron Allen got a big stake in the game too. And while I think it would be great for dudes likes these to establish more avenues for black films I also think it's important more black actors and actresses create their own vehicles and add to a an independent black film industry.

    People have been asking for more diversity behind the scenes for years in Hollywood and it just ain't going to happen and when it does they get some token who don't call no shots to appease folks

    I don't' necessarily think it's begging, I do feel black people are owed a whole lot of shyt when we paid dues and worked hard for it. Hell one of the first moving pictures ever made by Edison was two black men eating watermelon. We were a part of Hollywood before Hollywood existed but of course they won't give us our just due so we have to establish our own shyt.

    Dude realizes it when he's fukkin irrelevant now. Think about it. At the time he was offloading Def Jam, jimmy Iovine was about to fold Interscope. Russ was in a position to do whatever he wants. Fast forward 25 years and Jimmy sells his headphone company for billions while Russ' assets go to his ladyboy looking ex-wife in the divorce.

    Cats like Russ (and Dame) are visionaries with no vision

    As bad as Blacks need help, a Black Man with money and power choose to use his platform to bring awareness and truths, and you all shyt on him because he has smashed a couple of white women and asians.


    :snoop:Foolish Pride is all we have. Black People are done.



    We need all the help we can get dumbazzes. Things are getting worse and we more divided than ever. We cant turn anyone away.

    Fukk symbolism. Probably was a mostly of CACs on the board anyway.

    That's what's wrong with Blacks, we don't know what real value is. We care more about Symbolism and symbolic victories, images, when that shyt isn't helping up at all.People crying when Obama got in office. Hasn't done shyt for us.
