Has he improved his hiring process to include BLACK PEOPLE?? He was apparently profiled recently for having the poorest record of hiring diverse talent....
Agreed , How dirt dog do you have to be to be a monster who’s just trying to the work? Her big break was being your GF on a hit show and you terrorize her ? To ruin your career over that is beyond me.
And what bugged me more was even as others were alluded to, Tiffany Boone’s name was what was put up front. She was scapegoated.
“Yeah, I know how our peoples are treated and that’s why we shouldn’t tolerate any negativity done to us by anyone, even our own.”
“I’ve experienced stuff like this first hand and was told by Black men and Black women that Black men are “special” are “Kings” and need to be “given as much support and allowances as possible” for any bad behavior.”
I tune out when folks start up with the “kings/queens” “we have to handle this differently because you know how our peoples are treated”
“I’ve been very involved in Time’s Up and that movement, and for season two, we’re making sure that women feel safe...[I]f you want to play that game and be disrespectful or misbehave on set with an actress or anyone, I’ll happily call Showtime and say, ‘This person has to go,’ and you will get shot up and it’ll be a…
This was kept silent until tw white actors complained .
Tiffany Boone and Ayanna Floyd were, basically stepped over like dead climbers on Mt. Everest because Jason Mitchell was the star and everyone, including Lena Waithe, was cool with this dude being a monster to the women on set, until it became a PR nightmare
Chances are, you’ve seen Jazzy Ellis perform stunts in your favorite movie or TV show. Some past projects include the Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, Ride Along 2, The Walking Dead and Black Lightning. But, of course, it’s not easy being a black stunt performer, let alone a black woman, in the industry.
And yet... you’re still here? I can only assume you like the company, and we always appreciate the support; however backhanded it may be. I’m assuming you find it somehow validating, and since I do want you to feel better, if that’s somehow helpful, I suppose we can indulge you, understanding that every time you…
*laughs in bless your pathetically basic heart*
The fact that you think they’re one and the same (or that black people en masse = Black Lives Matter) says a lot about what you think about black people. (Spoiler alert: “magical negroes” service whiteness;“black girl magic” is entirely in service of ourselves.)
It also says a lot about your understanding of semantics,…
I think google & Shea Jackson McCann aimed at people with your outlook; as such they’re successful.
While I do recall the phrase from When Chickenheads Come Home to Roost, I have to say The Pretty Brown Girl, aka Auntie Peebz aka CaShawn is the first person I ever saw use it in everyday language (via her tumblr). I even bought some of those shirts for me and my niece from her tee-spring.
Here’s hoping Russell Simmons is not benefiting in any way from this acquisition.
I was going through my clothes the other day to donate stuff I don’t wear when I came across, for the millionth time, a black Baby Phat baby tee with the cat in gold across the front. It doesn’t fit me, probably never will, and is ridiculously out of style, but still, for the millionth time I folded it up and put it…
Basic fact out there for you trolls: if a person is intoxicated, or incapacitated, they are LEGALLY INCAPABLE of giving consent. Doesn’t matter if they just had one too many, or whatever. It. Is. Rape.
Very rarely am I speechless. This is one of those times. Same people angry when police walk after clearly seen violating a black man rights are suddenly looking at an assault and finding every legal loophole to excuse it. I know an assault when I see it.
