“You gon’ wait!” Ha! We love it! We have to interrupt Black Greek Month real fast to say congratulations to Taraji P. Henson for winning the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV series, drama!!! She won obviously for her role as Cookie Lyon on Empire, but even she had to admit that out of all of her roles, she did not expect this character to take her as far as it did. Here you also see her reaction to the teleprompter telling her to wrap up her speech. Clearly she was not too happy about that. Take your time Taraji! You’ve earned it!
Saw this on Facebook. Thought it was worth sharing.
‘at the end of the day white television employs few blacks if any so if it’s helping my people make money, that’s support for us too. and as far as disdain for cookie because she perpetuates stereotypes, I know a couple of cookies in my hood and I like seeing that. it’s inside jokes that I get. I hate that black people have to walk on eggshells and protect our actions in the media because people perceive it on a broader scale. they will say we are all cookie. but im tired of proving im educated because frankly, I have a little ratchet in me too and it says nothing about my intelligence or manners. the two coexist.’ - Dorothy #blackgirlsrock #criticalthinking #empire #cookie #blackactors #hollywood #stereotypes #representation #TarajiPHenson #LeeDaniels @empirefox @tarajiphenson @jussiesmollett @yazzthegreatest
While all eyes were on the ladies ruling the Red Carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Ball on Monday, there were some sharp dressed men who should be recognized for their sartorial splendor and fearlessness to reimagine the black tuxedo with flair.
I had this lady come by my job the other day, and she was talking about “Empire,” the 2nd season premiere. She said that she liked the episode, but the kissing between Michael and Jamal was too much, that kids could be watching. I looked at her, but held my peace. The ignorance that people have is astounding. Folks like her let their kids watch “Love & Hip Hop” or “Real Housewives,” where these fools are on there fighting, cursing, and participating in numerous other adult scenarios… but it’s too much for two men to kiss each other. 😒😒 #empire #empireonfox #empirefox #jamallyon #jussiesmollett #doratheexplorer #leedaniels
