solacekames: 8:08 AM PDT 8/16/2019 by Kareem Abdul-JabbarThe NBA great and Hollywood Reporter columnist, a friend of the late martial arts star, believes the filmmaker was sloppy, somewhat racist and shirked his responsibility to basic truth in ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.’Remember that time Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. kidney-punched a waiter for serving soggy croutons in his tomato soup? How about the time the Dalai Lama got wasted and spray-painted “Karma Is a Beach” on the Tibetan ambassador’s limo? Probably not, since they never happened. But they could happen if a filmmaker decides to write those scenes into his or her movie. And, even though we know the movie is fiction, those scenes will live on in our shared cultural conscience as impressions of those real people, thereby corrupting our memory of them built on their real-life actions.That’s why filmmakers have a responsibility when playing with people’s perceptions of admired historic people to maintain a basic truth about the content of their character. Quentin Tarantino’s portrayal of Bruce Lee in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood does not live up to this standard. Of course, Tarantino has the artistic right to portray Bruce any way he wants. But to do so in such a sloppy and somewhat racist way is a failure both as an artist and as a human being.This controversy has left me torn. Tarantino is one of my favorite filmmakers because he is so bold, uncompromising and unpredictable. There’s a giddy energy in his movies of someone who loves movies and wants you to love them, too. I attend each Tarantino film as if it were an event, knowing that his distillation of the ’60s and ’70s action movies will be much more entertaining than a simple homage. That’s what makes the Bruce Lee scenes so disappointing, not so much on a factual basis, but as a lapse of cultural awareness.Bruce Lee was my friend and teacher. That doesn’t give him a free pass for how he’s portrayed in movies. But it does give me some insight into the man. I first met Bruce when I was a student at UCLA looking to continue my martial arts studies, which I started in New York City. We quickly developed a friendship as well as a student-teacher relationship. He taught me the discipline and spirituality of martial arts, which was greatly responsible for me being able to play competitively in the NBA for 20 years with very few injuries.During our years of friendship, he spoke passionately about how frustrated he was with the stereotypical representation of Asians in film and TV. The only roles were for inscrutable villains or bowing servants. In Have Gun - Will Travel, Paladin’s faithful Chinese servant goes by the insulting name of “Hey Boy” (Kam Tong). He was replaced in season four by a female character referred to as “Hey Girl” (Lisa Lu). Asian men were portrayed as sexless accessories to a scene, while the women were subservient. This was how African-American men and women were generally portrayed until the advent of Sidney Poitier and blaxploitation films. Bruce was dedicated to changing the dismissive image of Asians through his acting, writing and promotion of Jeet Kune Do, his interpretation of martial arts.That’s why it disturbs me that Tarantino chose to portray Bruce in such a one-dimensional way. The John Wayne machismo attitude of Cliff (Brad Pitt), an aging stuntman who defeats the arrogant, uppity Chinese guy harks back to the very stereotypes Bruce was trying to dismantle. Of course the blond, white beefcake American can beat your fancy Asian chopsocky dude because that foreign crap doesn’t fly here.I might even go along with the skewered version of Bruce if that wasn’t the only significant scene with him, if we’d also seen a glimpse of his other traits, of his struggle to be taken seriously in Hollywood. Alas, he was just another Hey Boy prop to the scene. The scene is complicated by being presented as a flashback, but in a way that could suggest the stuntman’s memory is cartoonishly biased in his favor. Equally disturbing is the unresolved shadow that Cliff may have killed his wife with a spear gun because she nagged him. Classic Cliff. Is Cliff more heroic because he also doesn’t put up with outspoken women?I was in public with Bruce several times when some random jerk would loudly challenge Bruce to a fight. He always politely declined and moved on. First rule of Bruce’s fight club was don’t fight — unless there is no other option. He felt no need to prove himself. He knew who he was and that the real fight wasn’t on the mat, it was on the screen in creating opportunities for Asians to be seen as more than grinning stereotypes.

There's something about going to church with your love that brings you closer together in a peaceful, spiritual way. Singing, praising, and talking about God together, as a couple, solidifies that there is a relationship with you, your partner, and God. A man who loves Christ isn't afraid to talk about Him and will want to have meaningful discussions as a team. When you date a man who truly, full heartedly lives a life of faith, there is endless trust because worrying about cheating, adultery, lying, or greed isn't worth a girl's time. He will treat you with kindness and compassion and honor you. A man who commits to The Lord will reflect a commitment to you and your relationship.

<p>Black history month day 23: painter Romare Bearden</p> <p>A prominent American artist, Romare Bearden created dazzling work celebrating the black American experience, which he integrated into greater (predominantly white) American modernism. After working several decades as a painter, during the politically tumultuous 1960s Bearden found his own voice by creating collages made of cut and torn photographs found in popular magazines that he then reassembled into visually powerful statements on African-American life. The artist&rsquo;s subject matter encompassed the urban milieu of Harlem, traveling trains, migrants, spiritual &ldquo;conjure&rdquo; women, the rural South, jazz, and blues musicians, and African-American religion and spirituality. Late in his life, the artist established The Romare Bearden Foundation to aid in the education and training of talented art students.

What They Mean When They Say They Are Not Ready For A Relationship- blogged by @niksofly ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ No one really wants to hear the words "I'm not ready for a relationship". It's ego crushing, especially if you thought that you and the person you talk to were headed down that direction. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There could be a plethora of reasons why your individual isn't ready for commitment. Maybe he-she is fresh out of a relationship. The person could be working on themselves or on their business. They could possibly be getting right with their spirituality or in most cases- simply bullshitting you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The only way you will know the real reason for why your significant other isn't ready to go to the next level is through communication and an unbiased evaluation of your situation. However, more than likely if you're reading this, you are realizing the latter- your person is bullshitting you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's perfectly acceptable for someone to not be ready for a relationship, however the problem arises when the said person wants the benefits of a relationship without the commitment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I'm not 100% ready", "It's not you, it's me", "We're in a good place", "What's the rush?"... all lead down the same path... This person is bullshitting you. How do you know? Look at the parameters of a relationship. What do you typically do in a relationship? Look at your situation. What's going on in it? Does it resemble a relationship? There goes your answer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I cannot speak for men, but I can imagine it's the same. We as women become the men we want to date (that's a different conversation) and-or we get into this role. We show our entire hand in hopes this person selects us. We encourage, we make sure our "men" are good on all fronts, bending over backwards for them.

Does it resemble a relationship? There goes your answer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I cannot speak for men, but I can imagine it's the same. We as women become the men we want to date (that's a different conversation) and-or we get into this role. We show our entire hand in hopes this person selects us. We encourage, we make sure our "men" are good on all fronts, bending over backwards for them. We cook , become faithful to a non-existent relationship, spend majority of our time with this individual, become vested in their future, meet the family , immediate and extended, give them sex on demand only to be reminded at any course of a disagree

"I found myself desiring and knowing less and less, until I could say in utter astonishment: "I know nothing, I want nothing." Earlier I was sure of so many things, now I am sure of nothing. But I feel I have lost nothing by not knowing, because all my knowledge was false. My not knowing was in itself knowledge of the fact that all my knowledge is ignorance, that "I do not know" is the only true statement the mind can make....I do not claim to know what you do not.

Love is not a relationship, love is a state of being; it has nothing to do with anybody else. One is not "in love", one is love. And of course when one is love, one is in love – but that is an outcome, a by-product, that is not the source. The source is that one is love. - osho awakespiritual wearelove perspective unconditional loveandlight spirituality loveyourself selflove: The capacity to be alone is the capacity to love. It may look paradoxical to you, but it's not. It is an existential truth: only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love of sharing, of going into the deepest core of another person--without possessing the other, without becoming dependent on the other, without reducing the other to a thing, and without becoming addicted to the other. They allow the other absolute freedom because they know that if the other leaves, they will be as happy as they are now. Thei happiness cannot be taken by the other, because it is not given by the other. Osho l Awake.Spiritual Love is not a relationship, love is a state of being; it has nothing to do with anybody else.

For those asking me what I believe in. I would be trapped by a religion… But the way my spirituality is set up.. LetMeExplain: What is the Difference Between Religion and Spirituality? Religion keep us from seeing ourselves as a manifestation of God the way a wave is an extension of an ocean. Moving beyond religion leads us to the greatest freedom we can know: the freedom to be who we are — creative agents for justice and compassion. Religion is often about who’s in and who’s out, creating a worldview steeped in “us against them.” Spirituality rejects this dualism and speaks of us and them. Religion is a man-made device and is often about loyalty to institutions, clergy, and rules. Spirituality is about loyalty to justice and compassion. Religion talks about God. Spirituality helps to make us godly. The two need not be at odds. However the religious folks often become radicals. More people have been killed over religious beliefs than any other reason in history. I study all beliefs from all cultures and I utilize whatever does not insult my soul. There is good and valuable knowledge and truth in all ancient texts. I also prefer spirituality because it allows me to have a personal relationship with my creator vs religion forcing you to go thru pastors and clergy and relies more on the monetary system for support making it vulnerable to greed and quests for power by the leaders. That’s 4biddenknowledge: What if I told you that waiting on Jesus to return is a deception to distract you from iscovering Christ within you?

According to The Barna Group, In U.S., post-Christian cities overtaking Bible-believing urban areas. Reducing the number of Christians all over the US obviously could be compared to the national tragedy. With our faith, American spirituality and our traditions, as well as family values, are disappearing from the country. The process of demolishing of our great nation and its foundation (Christianity) have to be urgently stopped.
