Africa, Black History Month, and Community: Petition Asks Marvel to Invest 25% of "Black Panther" Profits into the Black Community @balleralert Petition Asks Marvel to Invest 25% of “Black Panther” Profits into the Black Community-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ As one of the most highly anticipated films of the year, “Black Panther” is expected to break some box office records and bring in millions. But now a petition has begun to have part of the profits be invested in the Black community. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ A petition on Change.org is asking Marvel to invest 25 percent of the profits into Black communities. Creator of the petition, Chaz Gormley wrote, "Through a clever, well-manufactured marketing campaign Marvel Studios and their parent company The Walt Disney Company have targeted the Black community with their advertisements for the upcoming Black Panther film, due to release on February 16, 2018. As marginalized groups have become more vocal, corporations and their savvy public relations departments have turned to catering to these groups - to turn a profit - and this film by Marvel Studios is no different." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Gormley also notes Marvel’s obvious appeals to the black community such as the film being released during Black History Month and Gil Scott-Heron's ‘The Revolution Will Not Be Televised’ playing in the film's initial trailer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The petition is asking those in the Black community to regain their power and demand that Marvel and its parent company, Disney, invest profits back into the community that is most connected with the film and have been faced with “police brutality and substandard living conditions." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ "You have the ability to not only be entertained but to leave the theater in February knowing that a portion of your money will be coming back into your community" Gormley adds. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ "To not only go see a film about a fictitious country in Africa with advanced technology but the opportunity to invest in programs which focus on the fields - Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics - that make such advancements possible, in real life.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ What do you think about this idea?

The GirlsTrip breakout star is the newest spokesperson for Groupon, which is one of the fastest-growing e-commerce marketplaces to date. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last year, in an interview on JimmyKimmelLive, Haddish admitted to taking Will and JadaPinkettSmith on a Groupon-bought swamp tour while in Louisiana filming ‘Girls Trip’. The hilariously-told story went viral and Groupon immediately knew that they wanted Haddish on board, someway, somehow. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After noticing how much Haddish knew about their company and its products, they thought that it would only be fitting to bring the 38-year-old on for their first Super Bowl ad commercial in seven years, and they did just that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “The Jimmy Kimmel link went through the entire company very quickly,” Groupon’s head of marketing for North America, Jon Wild, tells People. “We talked about involving her in our business more, and, as we got to know her, her purchases and the type of customer she is.

G-Eazy, Instagram, and Memes: G- Eazy Cuts Ties With H&M After The 'Coolest Monkey' Viral Image @balleralert G- Eazy Cuts Ties With H&M After The ‘Coolest Monkey’ Viral Image - Blogged by @tktrinidad ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ HM has been receiving backlash after they posted a black boy wearing a hoodie that said “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle." The same day of the photo going viral, TheWeeknd cut ties with H&M. GEazy was working on a new clothing with H&M that was supposed to come out on March 1st, but he decided to cut ties with the company as well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ G-Eazy posted on Instagram saying, “Over the past months I was genuinely excited about launching my upcoming line and collaboration with H&M.Unfortunately, after seeing the disturbing image yesterday, my excitement over our global campaign quickly evaporated, and I’ve decided at this time our partnership needs to end.Whether an oblivious oversight or not, it’s truly sad and disturbing that in 2018, something so racially and culturally insensitive could pass by the eyes of so many (stylist, photographer, creative and marketing teams) and be deemed acceptable.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ G-Eazy also posted a drawing of the boy wearing a hoodie saying “Coolest King in the World” along with his Instagram post. H&M has since removed the image from their website and issued an apology. Hopefully, they will be looking to hiring someone who is familiar with black culture among others.
