Do It Again, Martin, and Memes: Carl Anthony Payne Says He's All for a 'Martin' Reboot, Thinks It's Long Overdue @balleralert Carl Anthony Payne Says He’s All for a ‘Martin’ Reboot, Thinks It’s Long Overdue - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Well, it may be safe to say that the possibility of a ‘Martin’ reboot is headed in the right direction… and everyone seems to be on board with it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Over the weekend, TMZ caught up with CarlAnthonyPayne—who portrayed the role of ‘Cole Brown’ in the original series, and when asked about the promising project, he actually gave some hopeful responses. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “People are talking. We’re all talking,” he said, hesitantly, walking out of Mastro’s. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although it did appear that Payne didn’t want to give “too much” information away, he didn’t exactly say “no” either. In fact, he said that he wouldn’t be opposed to the idea of bringing ‘Martin’ back at all. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Absolutely. Why not? I think the people want it. I think it’s long overdue. We created magic in a bottle. You know? Why not do it again?” The 48-year-old told TMZ. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, many have wondered if the reboot would be available through a particular streaming service or a television network. According to Payne, he’s rooting for Netflix. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “You know what? I think [Netflix] would be a good home for it. There’s a lot of room to grow there. It would be smarter, better, and funnier.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As of now, the specifics are unknown. But, hopefully, we’ll know more soon-if it really happens. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Rumors of a ‘Martin’ reboot have been swirling for quite some time now, but they recently resurfaced when MartinLawrence’s fiancée, Roberta Moradfar, let the cat out of the bag that Lawrence spilled the beans to her about it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That following week, Lawrence was photoed out with co-stars Tisha Campbell-Martin and Tichina Arnold, which sparked more speculation.

Abc, cnn.com, and Donald Trump: Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump And the FAKE NEWS winners are. PresidentTrump has released the list of winners for his “Fake News Awards” and are as follows: 1. The New York Times’ Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump’s historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover. 2. ABC News’ Brian Ross CHOKES and sends markets in a downward spiral with false report. 3. CNN FALSELY reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks. 4. TIME FALSELY reported that President Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Oval Office. 5. Washington Post FALSELY reported the President’s massive sold-out rally in Pensacola, Florida was empty. Dishonest reporter showed picture of empty arena HOURS before crowd started pouring in. 6. CNN FALSELY edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese prime minister. Japanese prime minister actually led the way with the feeding. 7. CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scaramucci’s meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a “significant breakdown in process.” 8. Newsweek FALSELY reported that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda did not shake President Trump’s hand. 9. CNN FALSELY reported that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claim that he was told he is not under investigation. 10. The New York Times FALSELY claimed on the front page that the Trump administration had hidden a climate report. 11. And last, but not least: “RUSSIA COLLUSION!” Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION! 🇺🇸 WSHH

Children, Detroit, and Donald Trump: Father Of Two Deported To Mexico After 30 Years In The States @balleralert Father Of Two Deported To Mexico After 30 Years In The States – blogged by @MsJennyb (pic via NIRAJ WARIKOO) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Monday, 39-year-old Jorge Garcia kissed his wife and kids goodbye, just before being deported from metro Detroit to Mexico. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Detroit Free Press, 30 years after traveling to the United States with an undocumented family member at the age of 10, Garcia was sent back to his home country, leaving his wife and two children, who are all citizens of the U.S. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Garcia had been facing deportation since 2009, facing an order of removal from immigration courts. However, Obama’s administration allowed stays of removal, which kept Garcia in the states. But, with Donald Trump’s racist take on immigration, which has fueled his intense crackdown on illegal immigrants, Garcia’s time in the states was cut short. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Despite his good standing with the law, he has been ordered to Mexico. ICE agents escorted the 39-year-old through the airport and allowed him to say goodbye to his wife and children. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the publication, prior to his deportation, he asked the agents if he could stay until the new DACA bill passed, as it may expand the age range for qualification (Garcia is too old to qualify), but the organization refused. He was ordered to leave by Jan. 15, Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Birthday, College, and Community: 9 Things You May Not Know About Martin Luther King Jr. @balleralert 9 Things You May Not Know About Martin Luther King Jr. - Blogged By @Climb_This_Hill ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Every year on January 15th marks a special remembrance for Martin Luther King Jr. as we celebrate his birthday and achievements as a civil rights leader and activist in black history. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As we remember his heroic efforts today, there are still a few things you may not have known about MLK. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. Martin Luther King Jr. was born Micheal King, and both he and his father changed their name after the German Protestant leader, Martin Luther. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. Martin Luther King Jr. began taking college classes full-time at Atlanta’s Morehouse College at the age of 15 and graduated with his Ph.D. at 25. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3. On October 14th, 1964, at age 35, Martin Luther King Jr. became the youngest man to receive a Nobel Peace Prize for resisting racial inequality through non-violence. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4. King donated all of the $54,123 (worth about $400,000 today) of his Nobel Peace Prize award to the Civil Rights movement. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 5. He was the first African American to be granted a national federal holiday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 6. Over 1,000 streets in the U.S are named after Martin Luther King Jr. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 7. MLK was arrested more than 20 times for his non-violent civil rights protests. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 8. King won a Grammy for ‘Best Spoken Word Album’ for “Why I Oppose the War in Vietnam.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 9. In 2006, the Martin Luther King Jr. National Monument in Washington, D.C. was marked the first monument on the National Mall dedicated to an African-American. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Birthday, MLK. We appreciate all that you’ve done for the black culture and the sacrifices you’ve made to help create equality inside and out of our oppressed community.

Assassination, Bruce Jenner, and Disappointed: The Boondocks' Predicts An Oprah Winfrey Presidency In 2006 Episode "Return Of The King" 13 @balleralert A US. TIMES NOVEMBER 8,2020 Oprah Winfrey Elected Presidem ‘The Boondocks’ Predicts An OprahWinfrey Presidency In 2006 Episode “Return Of The King” – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Like many of the craziest-biggest moments in history, an Oprah2020 campaign was predicted in an episode of an adult cartoon series. From the prediction of Trump’s presidential campaign in ‘The Simpsons’ to Bruce Jenner’s transformation in ‘Family Guy,’ adult animated cartoons have been on point for the last several years. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, amid the talk of Oprah’s potential presidential campaign, a connection between this morning’s headlines and a scene from a 2006 episode of Adult Swim’s ‘The Boondocks’ has surfaced. Just twelve years ago, the show predicted a Winfrey Presidency with a newspaper that read, “November 8, 2020. Oprah Winfrey Elected President.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the episode, which is the 9th of the first season, Huey Freeman tells an alternate version of Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination. Titled, “Return of the King”, Freeman says instead of being killed, King slips into a coma for 32 years. In 2000, he wakes up and heads to vote in the presidential election but is turned away. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As the episode continued, Huey showed King how the culture plummeted after his shooting, as everyone was waiting for him to come back. So, Huey convinced him to reach out to the public again. But, disappointed in their ignorance, King set the record straight, just before revealing that he was leaving the country. That was the last time Huey saw King. At the end of the episode, the newspaper revealed that the year was now 2020. King had died at the age of 91 and Oprah has been elected President.
