    Am I missing something here? Black Power concedes to nothing. Black Power does not ask for opportunities, Black Power creates them. The Black Panthers created for the Black Populace, they did not beg the white man for anything. These Africans in Hollywood have all the opportunity they need and are squandering it. The white folks have let them into the house now if they want some pie they need to take their black butts into the kitchen and start baking it!!!!What does it matter if they nominate you or not? Why is it necessary to have their recognition? What does this type mentality say? Clearly they are still connected to that umbilical cord looking for the hand with the milk bottle...
    You are in the house man now take it over.. D--n!!!!... When do Africans stop asking and start doing. Pool resources together and build your own because that's what Black Power is and until you understand this and stop asking the white man for s--t, don't raise your fist to salute Black Power!!! Keep It Down.. It's an insult to the Sacrifices made and The Legacy..Black Power is not a Trend.....‪#‎Africanscandobetter‬

    I'm in agreement with Brother Tyrese. Way out of line especially when she is putting it on the line. As far as I'm concerned Chris needs to button it up because it's the same old crap.. His monologue does absolutely nothing to change the status quo except to reiterate and regurgitate what we already know and what has been said over and over again. Change comes from taking action, not from shuck'in and jiv'in because that all that is was.

    "the media are praising chris rock because he gave jim crow hollywood a pass. he got them to laugh at those who are protesting their lack of diversity.he ignorantly mentioned that this is the first protest by blacks against hollywood in 88 years, when blacks have been protesting against the stereotypes against blacks since at least 1912.he should read marcus garvey's condemnation of the kind of roles assigned to paul robeson by hollywood.they even had the great abbey lincoln play a maid.he should read our anthology,black hollywood unchained."

    Absolutely brother James. He was already part of the plan which is why he was selected before all of this came to a head. They used him as the front man to desensitize the issue and he played his part well..The brother forgets where he came from. Maybe needs to go back to get in touch with his roots....If you're not part of the solution then you are part of the problem.. Africans are reluctant to call him and his peers out for fear of backlash. I call it like I see it...These folks have been up in that house, how many years and have made over how many hundreds of millions of dollars and have the audacity to talk about not having opportunities.. Man, just fall off the planet....
