Leonardo DiCaprio To Play Martin Luther King Jr.

Nothing rubs me the wrong way than Hollywood's view of Black actors. While no one wants to believe that racism still exists, it's hard to believe when things like this happen.

The Nerd News reported, in a new movie about Martin Luther King Jr. producers felt that it was an awesome idea to cast Leonardo DiCaprio, wearing black face, as the great civil rights leader. The claim is that Hollywood should not have to "limit itself to the small group of black actors".  Really? Seriously?

Don't get me wrong. DiCaprio is a hell of an actor and has paid his dues. However, there are so many black actors that would be great for such a role and not just the typical ones we are familiar with. There are new, up and coming actors that would benefit from such a historic role.

As a people, we stand up against racial violence and the such. We stand together, all races, creeds, and socioeconomic backgrounds, when a visible injustice occurs. If this is NOT an injustice, I don't know what is.

I mean, really dude, if we stand by and allow a white man to be cast in black face as one of the world's greatest African-American leaders, this country is more messed up than I thought.

What do you think?

West Philly Trending

This morning I had planned to indulge in a good book I've been wanting to read for a while and figured this was the perfect time to do so.

Before I could crack the book open, the neighbors behind me started with their loud music. Typical! Blocking it out, I continued, beginning to get into the story but then my phone alerts started going off.

At first, I ignored them. Considering the amount of emails, tweets and posts that run through my phone per day, I accredited it to the norm.

And then my significant other says, "You won't believe this but West Philly is trending on Twitter." My response, "You can't be serious!"

Living in West Philly, I immediately looked into it, thinking that maybe something major had happened.


It was people representing and trashing the section of Philadelphia. It was so dumb and so hilarious that I had to get in on it and knock these Philly cats down a peg.

If you aren't from Philly you won't understand my irritation and need to say something. However, if you are, you get it.

Personally, I looked at it as a sign that I wasn't supposed to read and I was supposed to be my typical sarcastically funny self. I mean, really dude, West Philly SHOULD NOT BE TRENDING!!!

Well, Nancy Grace just did an increasingly popular rant about the bad affects of marijuana on people she has known. However, during the Trayvon Martin case Nancy had a slightly different view on cannabis. I mean, really dude, this is an example of loud for no reason.

When Pranks Go Too Far

A couple of guys thought it would be smart, and funny, to create a "Free Boat Ride" for black people. The "joke" was sending African Americans back to Africa where they were stolen from. What was meant to be a prank was seriously offensive. I mean, really dude, they had everything that could possibly be considered a black stereotype on this boat.

Mom Arrested After Crazy Police Chase

In New Mexico, a mother is arrested after leaving the scene of a traffic stop. The woman had five children in the car including one that got out of the vehicle to defend her against police officers. I mean, really dude, did the cops have to bash the car window with the children inside.


True Strength

In an online Volvo commercial, Jean-Claude Van Damme shows his flexibility between two reversing trucks. The martial artist and actor is known for his splits. I mean, really dude, they did this video in one take.

Who Momma is This?

Sex sells. It's the way of the world. Women using their bodies for money is nothing that has just started. Women using their children in their search for money is a rising trend. People doing irresponsible things with their children is becoming a trend too.

There are no words to describe the image below. Someone please comment and explain it to me. Is this really a thing? Why is that baby in the room? I mean, really dude, somebody get that baby out of there.
