By now you’ve probably (or not) heard about actress Danielle Watts being approached by police officers about a call they received that her and her boyfriend Brian James Lucas were having sex in their car. There is audio of the incident, and I must say the cop approached them with the upmost respect when asking for ID and informing them why he was there. Danielle Watts refused to ID herself and claimed it was her right to do so. And in a sense she’s right…but not at this moment. The officer had probable cause to do so, and in the state of California where the incident took place the cops can handcuff and detain you if you do not comply. She claims race was the determining factor and she also try to pull the I’m famous bullshit on the cop. The problem I have with this incident is, with all that’s going on in this country in regards to race. This will be the example that closeted racists and Uncle Toms alike will use to point out, that when dealing with “authority” people of color don’t know how to act. Kudos to the officer for keeping his cool. And maybe if Danielle Watts took her head out of her ass, then she’d know that having a white boyfriend and having minor parts in a movie and having a publicist doesn’t mean you’re above the law.



To commemorate the 25th anniversary of their debut album (3 Feet High & Rising) this year, De La is re-releasing their “entire” catalog on line for free. Now the reason I keep putting entire in quotes is because, while they’re claiming it’s their “entire” catalog. Nothing that was released past 2001 is included in the downloads, Like 2004’s “The Grind Date” (a personal fav of mine). Or the 2009 Nike and iTunes exclusive “Are You In?” None the less, if you’d like to brush up on the group’s work, you can do so here The downloads will only be available for 25 hours, they started today @ 11AM and will end tomorrow @ noon. If you want to get in on this you need to hurry because at their website they’re saying it may be hours until the downloads are available for you after you enter your email address. Peace.

Here is a sneak preview of the most anticipated documentary of the year, in my eyes, Hidden Colors 2: The Triumph Of Melanin. I was first introduced to the series of Documentaries by Author Traiq Nasheed in November of 2011 when a friend of my Aunt suggested I watch it. After 0:48 seconds into the movie, I felt like this would be a life changing experience, I watched it 5 times that night. On December 6th and 7th 2012, Hidden Colors 2 will be In theaters nationwide. I’m more excited than ever to go to the movies and waste time spending money on junk, surrounded by loud speakers with the people I Love to be around. Since watching part 1 of this Documentary I have been in study hall(Freedom Hall) I egret every African(America, Black, Jamaican, Haitian, West Indian, Trinidadian, Brazilian, Puerto Rican, Native American, Dominican, Cuban, Columbian  WHATEVER you call yourself) to see these series of Films. Please, Peace!
