Child Support, Fail, and Jail: Jay-Z and Roc Nation to Invest $3 Million in App That Combats Mass Incarceration @balleralert Jay-Z and Roc Nation to Invest $3 Million in App That Combats Mass Incarceration-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Jay-Z and Roc Nation will reportedly make a $3 million investment in an app called Promise, that combats mass incarceration. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ According to the website, the app was created by Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins and Diana Frappier to “get people out of jail and provide ongoing support and supervision to help keep them out.” The hope is that the platform will exist as an alternative to incarcerating individuals who cannot afford bail or who miss court dates by mistake. It will provide services to users that will help them log upcoming court dates, counseling appointments, and drug tests. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ When it comes to rehabilitation, Promise plans to provide programs to users that assist with job training and getting information about housing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ As a rapper, Jay-Z has used his platform to consistently speak about how the jail system is designed to fail those of low class and people of color. Last year the rapper wrote an opinion piece on Father’s Day about the exploitative bail industry. For many individuals, they are jailed due to their inability to afford bail, despite not being convicted of crimes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ During an interview with TechCrunch, Ellis-Lamkins spoke on the small infractions that lead to many people of color ending up behind bars. “People are going to jail because they look at a piece of paper and misread it, or are going to jail because they can’t afford a class because they’re instead paying child support. If we’re putting people in jail because they’re poor, brown or black, we’re spending money the wrong way.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “We are increasingly alarmed by the injustice in our criminal justice system,” Jay-Z said in a statement confirming his involvement with the app. “Money, time and lives are wasted with the current policies. It’s time for an innovative and progressive technology that offers sustainable solutions to tough problems. Promise’s team, led by Phaedra, is building an app that can help provide ‘liberty and justice for all’ to millions.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀

They completely lack the unique flavor of the Greco-Roman-inspired armor ensembles that <a href="http://www.core77.com/posts/67334/Breaking-Down-the-Design-of-the-Amazonian-Armor-in-Wonder-Woman">Lindy Hemming put so much thought and historical research into creating for Wonder Woman</a>. The Wonder Woman designs received acclaim from fans and costume fanatics alike. They were clearly inspired by the Amazon’s origins in the Mediterranean and were feminine but very functional. Why mess with perfection?</p> <p>Oh, right. The all-male team of directors and executive directors wanted women to fight in bikinis.</p> </blockquote> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="332" data-orig-width="570"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/64a5daf0bf27696135634411c2cf56eb/tumblr_inline_ozbqfiqCut1qitlmc_540.png" data-orig-height="332" data-orig-width="570"/></figure><blockquote><p> Wonder Woman began filming in 2015, the year before Justice League started filming in 2016. The Amazons’  design was finalized and most of the costumes completed while Justice League was still in pre-production. That means that there were discussions about what the Amazons should wear into battle in Justice League and the epic designs from Wonder Woman were rejected in favor of leather bikinis. Let that sink in. They rejected already finished costumes to redesign and remake the armor so that more skin would be showing. <br/></p></blockquote> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="430" data-orig-width="527"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/d172189772b58e2d882d19dabac0fe0b/tumblr_inline_ozbqglLixP1qitlmc_540.png" data-orig-height="430" data-orig-width="527"/></figure></blockquote> <p>“To be absolutely clear, my issue is not with the lack of modesty. The Amazons in <a href="https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C_7HrJaUQAACKYj.jpg">Wonder Woman wore sports-bra-like outfits</a> when they were not fighting and I think that is very realistic for a society that lives in a Mediterranean climate. My problem is a millennia-old military culture wearing bikinis into battle because they are women. My problem is a wise civilization that was created by the gods to protect the world thinking that soft leather is armor.</p> <p>I have a problem with a really great design being thrown out in favor of something that would excite the cis male gaze.”<br/></p> </blockquote> <p>Hahahahaha</p> <p>And there goes any desire i had to see this. I’ll wait for Diana and Aquaman on DVD.</p> </blockquote> <p>If you took any time to read into it, you’d find that many of the actresses enjoyed the change, as it allowed them to show off parts of themselves that some critique as being ‘masculine,’ in a very feminine way!</p><p><a href="http://comicbook.com/dc/2017/11/16/justice-league-box-office-thor-ragnarok-warner-brothers-competition/"></a><a href="http://comicbook.com/dc/2017/11/14/justice-league-amazon-costume-controversy/">http://comicbook.com/dc/2017/11/14/justice-league-amazon-costume-controversy/</a><br/></p><p><i> The costume actually gave Ence to show off her muscular physique, something she doesn’t get to do all the time. “I’m an athlete first, right? (Usually,) I can’t wear anything without someone commenting about my (muscular) body,” Ence said. “So for me, it was actually really cool to be able to show it and not immediately feel masculine, but still very feminine.” </i><br/></p><p><i>Also, ‘They aren’t wearing as much armor here because the film shows them fighting in a flashback which is thousands and thousands of yrs set before the Wonder Woman solo film.’ says a Twitter user. </i></p><p>Samantha Jo, who stars as the Amazon Euboea, shared a <a href="https://twitter.com/SamWJo/status/930557775633006592">lengthy response</a> to the controversy on Twitter. She praised director Snyder and costume designer Michael Wilkinson for making her feel “empowered”.</p><p>Referring to the more streamlined costumes, she wrote: “Amazonian fighting is a little more acrobatic and larger than life requiring armour that allows for that kind of articulation in the body.”</p><p>In fact, she went further and said she was “overjoyed” at the lack of body armour, which meant she avoided the “chafing, scrapes, pinched and bruised skin” she obtained while filming Wonder Woman.</p><p>Believe it or not, male directors aren’t inherently evil or sexist! Sometimes, it’s just armor! No one is out to turn these strong women into sex objects! </p></blockquote>
