[MOVIE] RED TAILS

I can’t wait to got see this movie on 1/20. RedTails stars Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrance Howard, Ne-Yo, Nate Parker, Tristan Wilds and is directed by Anthony Hemingway, produced by George Lucas. Check out the trailer & please support the film.

1944. World War II rages and the fate of the free world hangs in the balance. Meanwhile the black pilots of the experimental Tuskegee training program are courageously waging two wars at once — one against enemies overseas, and the other against discrimination within the military and back home. Racial prejudices have long held ace airman Martin “Easy” Julian (Nate Parker) and his black pilots back at base — leaving them with little to do but further hone their flying skills — while their white counterparts are shipped out to combat after a mere three months of training. Mistakenly deemed inferior and assigned only second-rate planes and missions, the pilots of Tuskegee have mastered the skies with ease but have not been granted the opportunity to truly spread their wings. Until now.
As the war in Europe continues to take its dire toll on Allied forces, Pentagon brass has no recourse but to reconsider these under-utilized pilots for combat duty. Just as the young Tuskegee men are on the brink of being shut down and shipped back home, Col. A.J. Bullard (Terrence Howard) awards them the ultimate chance to prove their mettle high above. Undaunted by the prospect of providing safe escort to bombers in broad daylight — a mission so dangerous that the RAF has refused it and the white fighter groups have sustained substantial losses — Easy’s pilots at last join the fiery aerial fray. Against all the odds, with something to prove and everything to lose, these intrepid young airmen take to the skies in a heroic endeavor to combat the enemy — and the discrimination that has kept them down for so long.

INTERRACIAL DATING…A GROWING STORY IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY? [SOCIAL]

As a woman growing up, I have never even considered dating outside of my ETHNIC GROUP…yes ethnic group people, it’s our ethnicity that’s different, there truly is only one race (the human race) well when it comes to people..lol. Race is not the “color” of your skin, think of it like mammals, then there are groups of mammals, that are very distinct from one another. Ok, now back to what I was saying. I, as a 38 year old African American woman, have watched interracial dating become more and more prevalent amongst sisters. I mean the “men” were gone a long time ago. I use to be angry, with excuses like: Why are “we” good enough when a brother has nothing, but once he educates himself(with you right there helping him along the way), gets a decent paying job, etc…he chooses someone of a different ethnic group to call his wife? Or every time I turn on 106 & park, every video has light skin or exotic looking models (almost saying this is what beauty looks like) just like the standard that “white” america labeled as beautiful. Blah, Blah, Blah Read the rest of this entry »
