Help Me Support Danger Word Film!

I rarely ask people to donate funds for anything, but this project, Danger Word Film is very dear to my heart & it is important to me, so I wanted to remind everyone about this community funded project I’ve have asked you all to be a part of, throughout social media. It’s from husband-wife writing team Steven Barnes Tananarive Due . Steven is the author of 27 novels & has written for television shows such as The Outer Limits, Andromeda & the (new) Twilight Zone. The episode he wrote “A Stitch In Time” on The Outer Limits won an Emmy Award as well.

Tananarive is the award winning novelist of 10 horror novels such as the African Immortal series which started with MY SOUL TO KEEP & she is the Spelman College Cosby Chair in the Humanities.

I have met them both, been informally mentored as a person and writer & they are wonderful, down-to-earth, exceptional human beings. Both of their novels have influenced me as a writer as well. Please visit www.dangerwordfilm.wordpress.com to learn how you can be a part of/support this project! I will be donating myself & NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL (OR BIG hehe!) Amounts can be donated anywhere from $1 & up, simply click the “donate” button once you’re on their website! They have acknowledgements for all levels of donations and some fantastic incentives available. Recently, they announced that the part of “Grandpa Joe” will be played by veteran actor Frankie Faison, well known for his roles on television show “The Wire” and The Silence of The Lambs. Faison is currently co-starring in Alan Ball’s series “Banshee” on Cinemax. Steven & Tananarive share more here:

Yvette Carnell on Jamie Foxx’s “Black People are the Most Talented People In the World”

Great commentary from liberal blogger Yvette Carnell on Jamie Foxx’s recent declaration at the NAACP awards that “Black people are the most talented people in the world”:

“Jamie Foxx is a talented entertainer, and because of that, I’ll eventually get around to watching DJango Unchained. What I won’t do is join in the chorus of black people jamie foxx and daughterAmening Jamie’s“Black people are the most talented people in the world” comment.

“Black people are the most talented people in the world. I, it’s, I can’t explain it,’Foxx said at the NAACP Image Awards.‘You can’t sit in this room and not watch Gladys Knight sing and go like, “Golly, what in the world?”

I get where Foxx was trying to go, I think. Based on the context, it seems to me that Foxx was trying to express how, based on the Black  Experience, black people are more sensitive to certain impulses, and how we tend to mold and refine those increased sensitivities until they become perfect tools for our art. That’s what he meant. That’s true. But what he said was that we’re the most talented people in the world. That’s a lie.

That comment by Foxx, which takes one race, black people,  and sets it high above others,  based solely on sketchy anecdotal evidence and vague preferences, is vexing because it brings to mind other similar pronouncements made by blacks, like  how we all  ”came from kings and queens.” Truth is,  some of us come from kings and queens, while others of us derive our DNA from spear chuckers, slave traders, and common crooks. Some of us are the descendants of philosophers, mathematicians, and activists as well, but the honest truth is none of us are just one thing. We’re all descendants of  different classes  of people, with varied achievements and abilities.

“Kim K & Kanye West: A Liberal Media Celebration of Immorality”

KKSo Kim Kardashian is an unwed, (to Kanye West, the baby’s father that is, she is still married to Chris Humphries), soon to be mother, impregnated by Kanye West & the liberal media is all over it. People have emailed & messaged me asking ME what I think. Really? Does anyone even have to ask? I could care less about “Kim K” or Kanye West to be honest, but what I loathe is the way the media celebrates & glorifies this with non-stop coverage as if it’s the best situation. The only advantage they have is that they are wealthy & can financially care for the child (Note that I said financially. I doubt that either has the emotional & spiritual maturity needed to raise children). I am a Conservative Christian who believes that marriage comes first, so no, I don’t approve of anyone, including a celebrity having premarital sex & not even talking about marriage or that they should have waited. A marriage, is proven to be the best institution to raise a child & sex should be reserved for marriage IMO. Personally, I struggle but I am abstinent until the Lord gives me to another husband with whom I can righteously make love & procreate. This is just more glorification of a sinful lifestyle and a sad sign of the culture. Kim K & Kanye West are poor “role models” – pregnancy not withstanding & I will not celebrate nor glorify this pregnancy…

“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”

Ephesians 5:31
