Nick Cannon is speaking up about the current state of African-Americans in Hollywood.  He, along with several other Black actors, are tired of movies like “Django Unchained, Lincoln, The Butler and “12 Years a Slave(The list can go on and on).” Within about a year’s time span, these FOUR box office Slave Movies have hit the silver screen … with a fifth reportedly in the making.

"Why don’t they make movies about our African kings & queens? #OurHistory I would love to see a film about Akhenaton and his beautiful wife Queen Nefertiti! Or Cetewayo, a King who was a war hero. Im about to drive to my office RIGHT NOW and start the development! New Hollywood Trend, Black King and Queen films! Starring Black People!!" #NoDisrespectToElizabethTaylor.”

Many Black People think that we are so far removed from being great royalty and actually fighting for your people, but in all actuality it its is not that long ago. Cetewayo KaMpande was the Great African King of the Zulu’s from 1872 to 1879 In Zululand which is now modern day South Africa. He is Legendary for being a Hero to the African People and as King he lead his people in the Anglo-Zulu War to fight against colonization and slavery by the British and French.

The British sent Christian missionaries to speak to Cetewayo about “Hell Fire” in an attempt to scare him with religion, Ceteweyo said “Hell Fire?” and then laughed. “Do you think I’m afraid of hell fire? My soldiers would put it out.” He then commanded his officers to have his warriors eat grass that was on fire burning on a nearby hillside. His men immediately began to eat up the fire, not regarding their personal injuries. Cetewayo then said “I Eat Hell Fire!!!” and banished them from Zululand to send his message.

Catewayo went on to defend against invasion and deliver what is known as the greatest defeat in Colonial British History with His victory at Isandlhwana, it was one of the most terrifying slaughters in history and he also Killed the heir to the French throne Prince Napoleon. As the British Power grew and they conquered surrounding areas he eventually was captured and imprisoned for 3 years. After he was free he returned to his Land. Cetewayo died in his mid-50’s in February of 1884, Never having surrendered his principles for freedom for his people, the Zulu’s. SanCopha!

H. Rider Haggard, Kind des Sturms

Hätte Haggard hier “Wir Menschen …” gesagt, so würde ich ihm uneingeschränkt zustimmen. Er spricht von den Unterschieden zwischen Weissen und Schwarzen und betont doch dabei am ehesten ihre Ähnlichkeit. Für Mameenas Ehrgeiz, Sadukos Liebe und Zikalis Rachsucht spielt die Farbe ihrer Haut keine Rolle. Allan Quartermain ist sozusagen der Edle Wilde unter den Zulu. Er ist allerdings nicht edel genug, um sie nicht mit alten Musketen zu beliefern und sich daran zu bereichern.
