Being Alone, Children, and Fresh: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Talks 'Black Panther' with Ryan Coogler: "If You're Black, You'll Leave With a Straighter Walk, a Gratitude For Your African Heritage, and a Superhero Whom Black Children Can Relate To" @balleralert Read more: www.balleralert.com Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Talks ‘Black Panther’ with Ryan Coogler: “If You're Black, You'll Leave With a Straighter Walk, a Gratitude For Your African Heritage, and a Superhero Whom Black Children Can Relate To” - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ‘Black Panther’ isn’t just another film; it’s a moment of cultural celebration and appreciation, especially for the mainstream representation of blacks in Hollywood. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here you have a traditional superhero film spearheaded by a predominantly black cast and Mr. RyanCoogler, a black man who not only directed, but also co-wrote it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That alone speaks volumes, particularly in today’s pop culture climate. It’s innovating, refreshing, revolutionary, and even groundbreaking. This is a milestone for the culture. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The film—based on Marvel Comics’ fictional character of the same name, debuted on February 16th, breaking worldwide box office records and setting the table for national dialogue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One day before its release, Coogler sat down with retired NBA player KareemAbdulJabbar to share his views on why ‘Black Panther’ is such a big deal and why it could be beneficial for all races. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “The concept of an African story, with actors of African descent at the forefront—combined with the scale of modern franchise filmmaking, is something that hasn’t really been seen before,” Coogler told Abdul-Jabbar. “You feel like you’re getting the opportunity of seeing something fresh, being a part of something new—which I think all audiences want to experience, regardless of whether they are African descent or not.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Later in the Hollywood Reporter piece, Coogler detailed what he strives for viewers to gain from watching ‘Black Panther’. “I hope they take out of it a sense of enjoyment [but also] something that is not disposable,” he ......to read the rest log on to BallerAlert.com (clickable link on profile)

America, Best Friend, and Christmas: Yesterday at 6:41 AM My dad for three years, would come work odd jobs in America for 6 months go back to Venezuela for 6 months and that is how we live while Chavez took power in the country. In 2002 my dad left and never came back, that December my mother told us we were going to see him for Christmas break, we came with 2 suitcases, we left our apartment with everything our toys, pictures, furniture, we said goodbye to the family and friends thinking we will see them then again. I came to America to an empty apartment we had an air mattress where the four of us slept. We didn't even have covers and it was a cold December. But they sacrificed, both of them - they worked jobs that nobody else would- my father broke his back and became a stranger for years because he used to work 2 to 3 jobs at time for us to survive and we rarely saw him. ContinueReading: “I can go on about the first couple of years here in America what we went through how my parents were able to provide for my sister and I to get to where we are. My father is my best friend – my mother is my strength, my fight is not for me but for both of them – I fight every day for those whose future are in jeopardy and I know mine is too. I don’t want relief if it means harming my community, if it means putting my parents in jeopardy the original Dreamers. We won’t sell out our friends and families, we won’t give in this. Know that we will continue to speak up and loud against anything that puts our families at risk. This fight has been going on for 17 years – so many bills have been put at the table and both parties know that a CleanDreamAct has the bipartisan support to pass. We will continue to put pressure on those who are in power specially Speaker Ryan, the house and both Democrats and Republicans – I hope yall ready.
