Memes, Samuel L. Jackson, and Thriller: "Get Out" Star Daniel Kaluuya Responds to Samuel L.

Jackson’s Comments About His Casting: “I Resent That I have To Prove I’m Black” - blogged by: @msjennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Despite the success of the box-office hit, GetOut, written and directed by “Key & Peele” star JordanPeele, the film received slight criticism from actor SamuelLJackson, regarding the decision to cast a black British actor as lead. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The movie, which is described as a “social thriller,” followed the interracial relationship between Chris ( DanielKaluuya) and Rose (Allison Williams). In the film, the couple takes a trip to meet Rose’s parents, but to Chris’ surprise, he discovers a horrific family secret. The film also subtly draws comparisons to the racial issues in America. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In an interview with Hot97, Jackson expressed his opinion about the film’s casting, wondering what the movie would have been if a black American had the role as Chris. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “There are a lot of black British actors that work in this country. All the time,” he said. “I tend to wonder what would that movie have been with an American brother who really understands that in a way. Because Daniel grew up in a country where they’ve been interracial dating for a hundred years. Britain, there’s only about eight real white people left in Britain. … So what would a brother from America made of that role? I’m sure the director helped. Some things are universal, but everything ain’t.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Daniel fired back, frustrated that he has to prove and defend his blackness by comparing his struggle based on the black struggle in America. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “When I’m around black people, I’m made to feel ‘other’ because I’m dark-skinned,” he said. “I’ve had to wrestle with that, with people going ‘You’re too black.’ Then I come to America, and they say, ‘You’re not black enough.’ I go to Uganda, I can’t speak the language. In India, I’m black. In the black community, I’m dark-skinned. In America, I’m British. .....to read the rest log on to BallerAlert.com (clickable link on profile) logon readmore

Memes, Struggle, and Boost: Be Patient. For What Was Written For You, Was Written By The Greatest Of Writers. gardeurofthepious When being tested by Allah, remember to remain patient and persistent with Jannah as a motivation to struggle and strive through the hardships of life without losing your faith in Al Khabir (The All Aware). - Whenever you find yourself facing a trial, keep in mind that you as a believer are rewarded or recompensed at the same time if handled correctly. And remember that the solution to all the problems in this life is to reduce your sins, to repent and to increase your good deeds. When in need of a morale boost start with Dhikr of Allah, and reading the Qur’an. - “Verily, We sent (Messengers) to many nations before you. And We seized them with extreme poverty (or loss in wealth) and loss in health (with calamities) so that they might humble themselves (believe with humility).” (Quran, 6:42) - It is an established fact in the Quran, that one of the ways Allah assesses the faith of believers is by taking away their health and their wealth, but as seen in the humbling verse above, if a believer passes whatever the test is, his faith will be reinforced and more stronger than it was initially. - Allah will test your faith throughout your life using your health, your wealth, or even your loved ones. Be prepared to be tested, be patient when torn and momentarily broken, and keep in mind that everything in this life is either temporary or occurs in cycles according to Allah's decree. Furthermore take life to be a roller coaster, meaning - if you are at the bottom today, as someone patient with firm faith in Allah, you’re already on your way up In Shaa Allah. ForeverTemporary @gardenofthepious - “Indeed, the righteous will be within gardens and springs. Having been told, ‘Enter it in peace, safe and secure.’ And We will remove whatever is in their breasts of resentment, so they will be brothers, on thrones facing each other. No fatigue will touch them therein, nor from it will they ever be removed. [O Muhammad], inform My servants that it is I who am the Forgiving, the Merciful.” (Quran, 15:45-49)

Arthur, Bless Up, and Chicago: when you get a surprise kiss @DrSmashlove Now look, u gon date people who throw red flags up. Red flags left. Red flags right. They gon tie a red flag around your face and u gon wake up in the middle of the night suffocating and sweating whipping your arms around the bed thinking u in a secret CIA facility and a sexy woman in a US Army uniform got a towel around your face pouring water in your nostrils and u think she waterboarding u and u like "I DON'T KNOW NOTHING BOUT NO TERRORIST ACT AT THE SUPER BOWL COT DAMMIT I WORK IN FINANCE AND RUN A IG ACCOUNT FOR FUN I COULDN'T BLOW UP A BOTTLE ROCKET LET ALONE A STADIUM LEMME GO HOME I MISS CHICAGO YALL DON'T HAVE DEEP DISH PIZZA IN IRAQ - OR INTELLIGENTSIA COFFEE - AGGGHKKKHHHH" *gurgle* *suffocate* *almost die* *wake up next to the same pretty girl in bed who is crazy AF but imma keep messing with her because I'm not right in the head* 😕 Anyway to top it off Bruh I'm the ultimate red flag. I do disclaimers now: "I had a bad childhood. I get sad. I'm anxious about work because I have a high amount of responsibility and don't take vacations so my hands are permanently squeezed like the Arthur meme. Please sign these waivers that my lawyer prepared. Yes. Initial there. Notarize here. Ok wonderful, u can touch the PP now 🤗." Nah but real talk at the end of the day, red flags will always be alluring. Captivating. "Maybe I can change this person? Or maybe this person won't burn me like they burned others." No, and hell no 😂. If u date a snake, just understand that despite how beautiful and silky that snake is, one day it's gon bite. U might recall that Siegfried and Roy, the Las Vegas couple that puts on shows with wild animals, once had an incident where a tiger bit, and paralyzed, Roy. Chris Rock joked that the "tiger went tiger." Roy never blamed the tiger and even said the tiger was trying to take care of him. Roy understood the tiger's nature and didn't resent the tiger when it's nature revealed itself. Next time u get bit just remember - if that's in their nature, it was just a matter of time. U could obsess over people's shortcomings or enjoy the good they had to offer and let it ride. Ya get me! Bless up 🙌❤

Advice, Community, and Marriage: In Guinea Bissau, the Bijagos are a matriarchal tribe where women possess all the power. And it's the job of the men to be attractive in order to attract a wife 1 7thsou lja4 On the island of Orango Grande, in the Bijagos Archipelago, off the coast of Guinea Bissau, there is a matriarchal society where women possess all the power, where they organise themselves into associations which manage the economy, social welfare and the law. It is they who impose sanctions, direct, advice and distribute goods, and they are respected as the absolute owners of both the house and the land. Here it is the man who has the obligation to dress very well to attract the attention of a woman. Women hold the supreme power of divorce in marriage. Men are turned to only for the tilling of the fields, hunting monkeys and fishing.Bijago have traditionally resented all centralized authority, whether Portuguese,*French*, English, German or contemporary government officials. In 1447,when the Portuguese explorer, Nuna Tristao, tried to conquer the Bijagos, they killed him instantly because they do not want any form of rule except their matriarchal traditional system that create chiefs to rule them. The Bijagos rose up in rebellion against the Portuguese in 1900, 1913-1915, 1917, 1918, 1924 and 1936. Portugal did not consider the Bijago as pacified until 1936.The political power is in the hands of the village chief, which is being justified by his connection with the ancestors through matrilineal descent. He is a leader of every community, he makes the decisions and controls the distribution of the land. In this important task he is assisted by the council of elders. The women are especially important in the political and cultural system of Bijago, as they determine the chiefs’ line of inheritance. The matriarchal order was so strong that the women selected their men and could force divorce on their husbands, the man keeping the children.Within the clan the inheritance is of the matrilineal type, but after the matrimony the whole family lives in the husband’s house. All of them belong to the clan of the mother. It is important in terms of the allocation of the land and responsibilities typical for Bijagos. 17thsoulja BlackIG17th blackwomenmatter
