The problem with all-star African American Casts...

View More

Unfortunately, movies starring an all African American cast are on the verge of becoming extinct.  THAT’S RIGHT, EXTINCT! Ask any executive at a Hollywood Studio why, and most of them will tell you one of two things. The first thing they’ll say is that DVD sales have become very soft, so it’s hard for a movie with an all black cast to break-even.  Secondly they’ll say, most movies are now dependent on foreign sales to be successful and most "black" movies don’t sell well in foreign markets.  So what that means is you will begin ...

Encouraged by a cell phone

OK,

To all of you that use the cell phone light like I do, I just want to say this.  For me, as I was walking through my dark house trying to get to my bedroom, it was truly an exercise in faith. I could only see the light at my feet. I had to trust that even though I could only see three feet in front of me, if I kept following this light, I would get there.

It reminded me of a scripture in the bible, Psalm 119:105 "The word is a lamp unto my feet and ...

Don't Think I'm Crazy...

Don't think I'm crazy, lol. Have you ever turned off all the lights in your house and used the light from your cell to lead you to the room you were trying to get to (and no my lights are not cut off..lol)? I turn the cell phone light toward my feet and walk to where I'm going in the dark all the time.  I was doing that tonight and something made me smile. Ok, tell me if you've ever done it before and then I'll tell you what moved me about it tomorrow ...

One of the Greatest Gifts I've Ever Been Given

When I was a little boy (I couldn’t have been more than 6 or 7), my mother and I were riding in the car one day and she looked over at this car that was passing by and her eyes lit up. In my little boy voice, I said, "what mamma?" She said, "you see that car right there, that’s beautiful." I said to her, "when I get big I'm going to buy you that car." She looked at me and said, "OK baby," and smiled. I don’t know if she believed me, but she sure ...

WOW!! I saw all of the messages about For Better or Worse being “REAL.” I saw the messages from some of you saying that it hit close to home. “Just what I was trying to do,” YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHING YET!
 
I see a lot of you saying Angela should be patient, pray and wait to find out the truth. Some of you say she should lose it on Marcus.
 
And surprisingly, a lot of women believe Marcus!
 
So, I got a question, now that she has the letter, how do you think she's handling it?
 
By all ...

I Just Had To Thank You!!!

View More

Sitting here in my den watching the sunrise. Just finished my morning prayers and I’m about to do my workout for the day. Even though I have so much to be thankful for, this is still a very rough time of the year for me. As I’ve said before, most of you know why, but for those of you who don’t, I’ll tell you.  My mother died two years ago around this time of year and she was the closest person on this planet to me. We spoke just about every day, I mean almost EVERY ...
