Video: Jada Pinkett Smith on Oscarssowhite- She nailed it!

Jada Pinkett Smith
  I normally decided not to post anything about #Oscarssowhite because I didn't like the way blacks were presenting themselves in this matter. Till I found this video of Jada Pinkett Smith, saying it the way I was feeling about it! I really respect this woman for this video! 

We black people both in Africa and America need to carry ourselves with pride and we need to start investing in ourselves and mostly let's start creating ourselves so that our children will have a platform to be honored like the whites honor their people on the Oscars and so on. 

We have to start now so that in maybe 50 years our academy will be huge like the Oscars even, if possible, bigger than the Oscars. If we are begging them like the hashtag #Oscarssowhite is insinuating then we will lose and our children and grandchildren will lose to. This hashtag makes me feel like the black race is asking whites to acknowledge them and if they don't do then we fall back in the time of the slavery. This is the wrong way to handle this matter!

I don't know why blacks do not see the opportunities that stand before them. If Afro-Americans and African film industry collaborate and establish an annual movie award that celebrate black people. With a lot of handworks and the will to succeed, we will be taken seriously in no time. Black American filmmakers need to start seeing the potential that is in Africa (Nollywood & Ghollywood) and start to collaborate with this industry. 

Africa is the fastest growing continent and the people in Africa love watching films! This is a great opportunity and time for us to create something of our own. It doesn't have to stop at the movie industries we can expand it to the fashion industry then we can use our black models and present the beauty that lies in the black race. The future generation will have something to be inspired by and to build on. 

This is just my own view on that matter.

Eva Longoria's inspiring speech on DNC

This is the speech of Hollywood actress Eva Longoria on the DNC (Democratic National Convention). She delivered an inspiring speech that supports the re-election of President Barack Obama. The Desperate Housewives star said that her parents were not wealthy, but education was very important in her family, so she has done every job to complete her degree. She said: "I changed oil in a mechanic's shop, I flipped burgers at Wendy's, I taught aerobics, and I worked on campus to pay those loans back." She went further and said that Obama has cut the taxes for those who need it, and adds: "The Eva Longoria who worked at Wendy's flipping burgers, she needed a tax break But the Eva Longoria who works on movie sets does not" for which she received a standing ovation from the crowd.

Johnny Depp & Vanessa Paradis

When I heard yesterday from the separation of Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp, I was really shocked and slightly sad. I've always felt that it fit between the two. Like all women, I wished a happy end. Unfortunately it is not so, so I wish you, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, they're there for their children at this difficult time. And that they keep in good memory.

Johnny Depp is a good looking and funny man, the women's world will be very happy about this separation, right?
Here is a video of Vanessa Paradis, she has a great voice, enjoy the song!
