  1. Ugh!!! Troy bite your tongue. PLEASE NOT Nigeria. They are the richest African nation right now. But my God. The self-hatred in that country; then the growing Arab Muslim states; the corruption; the And don't get me wrong...a GANG of my friends are Nigerian. I LOVE Nigerian people madly. It's not them so much as that they're too Western-oriented. They would eventually go the same route as Black America and Black Britain. Africa has a million (literally) Black Mecca locations that are better than Nigeria. Senegal is my favorite African nation, btw. And
  2. Troy, I wanted to post a photo of myself with Nobi at the NBTheater. And another with me and Manie Barron. It seems you've fixed it so I can't post photos! lmao
  3. This story in the New York Times today is really close to my heart. Apparently, THE NATIONAL BLACK THEATER OF HARLEM where I performed last May, is facing foreclosure. NEW YORK TIMES ARTICLE I wish to God there was something I could do!! The Curator, Nobi, has become a dear friend to me and he's one of the best Black Men I have ever met on earth! I was given the largest theater (without paying a cent) and my show failed to make back the entire $4,000 rental cost of the theater. All productions have to pay this PER NIGHT! Nobi waved the charges. He was so move
  4. You see, Troy just gave the perfect example of how "fast" we read nowadays. We don't really read...we SCAN things. I hate when people read an essay or commentary by me and then ask me a question that was talked about in the article! I just had 6 people do that in last 3 hours after reading my essay "Why I love America." They don't really take the time read something anymore. We're a busy, busy, busy SCAN-IT population now. Short attention spans.
  5. I'm so grateful for all the supportive emails I've received over this thread. Honestly, it felt like the "old days" again...thank you so much for the love. And yes, I promise not to let this person get to me and to ignore his hatred. tima usrah ! (through fire comes the family)
  6. What an important article! This is one of the things I worried about with my novel "Sexy Part of the Bible" coming up. I told Johnny Temple that I feared the "attention span" of today's mainstream wouldn't be able to grasp all the nuances and metaphors of this story (I was nervous about the book being released on July 1st, 2011, which is the "STAR BEACH READING SLOT" usually reserved for superstar authors--summer and Christmas being the 2 biggest book buying seasons & the most competitive. My book is not "Jaws" or "The Shining"--you really have to be a reader to read
  7. EVERYTHING YOU WRITE, MOTHERF--KER....is about me. And as usual, you don't know SHIT about what you've "come to grace us with"--hateful WHITE Payola-PAID Half Baked Reporter Bitch--- ...and your HATREDof me is all that I know. What you SHOULD of done is ignored me from the beginning. But you just can't contain yourself. You are a Kola Boof FANATIC, sick motherfucker! Go STALK something or someone...you BELIEVE IN ...pathetic Syphilis-brained White Evil tick-hearted no life dirty lying bastard. The PAIN & unfairness you've inflicted on me...because you DON'T understand.
  8. No...it's your brain playing tricks on YOU, because I am indeed one of those peace activists. Paragraphs 9 to 12 Daily Nation, Kenya And those were NOT the only 2 cities, dumb phoney. As usual you don't know WHAT you're talking about; you stumble around with nothing worthwhile to do with your fucking life but make up reasons why people should HATE me. WHO are you helping by obsessing over somebody else's passions and opinions?? Get a fucking life or either be a MAN and preach your own goddamn opinions about earth!
  9. Yesterday, Angela Davis gave a press statement complaining about the F.B.I.'s treatment of 14 writer/activists. She appealed to President Obama to do something about this problem. This morning, my related essay about my own personal experiences with the F.B.I. and NSA was published by WOMANISTMUSINGS.COM to coincide with Angela Davis's statement: The FBI and NSA dealings with Kola Boof For those who follow me on Twitter, you know what I've been going through the last month dealing with the FBI as I've TWEETED leading up to Ms. Davis's statement for weeks. My essay d
  10. By the way. CHERYL WALSH and GLORIA NAYLOR are both very pleased with my essay as they have been knowing my situation since 2006 and have been in contact with me since 2006. Dr. Stuart Bramhall (a white woman psychiatrist) is also part of our group and her book identically mirrors the experiences of Gloria Naylor and Kola Boof, too. So seeing as Dr. Stuart Bramhall went through the same ordeal for 15 years, we can't all be crazy. ANGELA DAVIS will say MORE when she's good and goddamn ready.
  11. I am one of the 14 authors that Angela Davis is referring to. Those who follow me on Twitter, including a few heavyweight people in publishing who read this board, know full well what has been going on with me and others...I have been Tweeting it as a LEAD IN to Angela Davis's official public statement for the last MONTH. Considering that this person BOOKFAN has an "obsession" with discrediting me and consistently STALKS, "slanders" and "LIES" on me...yet considers himself to be "normal"and "trustworthy" ...I'm not the least bit surprised that he's WORRIED about people list
  12. Have you ever seen "A Clockwork Orange"? It's sort of a wild imagery movie. I feel that's how "For Colored Girls" could have been a movie but remained like the play. There's so much you can do (and tell) with imagery and fantasy and words. Black cinema needs to move into other realms. We need science fiction films and other modes of storytelling. We're quite sophisticated now. I do understand why Linda liked the movie, though. It was entertaining and the acting was superb!
  13. Carey, The original Play was a record-breaking Classic and there were NO MEN in the play whatsoever. The males were "talked' about fleetingly. The focus was on the women's "blossoming" and what hardships they had overcome to reach these glorious "Colors" that they were. It was a very powerful and "affirmative" experience watching the play IMO. I think the film should have kept the MYSTICAL vibe by doing something totally artistic--like setting the women on different colored planets to play out their experiences/poems and then having them gush to earth. Believe it or not, w
  14. Thanks for mentioning me Cynique. ___________ Right now, a lot of "Hate" is being aimed at Tyler Perry by Black feminists. While I was disappointed in "For Colored Girls" and wrote that I was disappointed. I can never HATE Tyler Perry. And the reason is... ...since when in history have so many Black Actresses ever been employed in films at the same time?? He literally casts 12 to 20 Black Female Speaking Parts in every movie he makes!! This ranges from the STAR to the small "Nurse", "Bank Teller", "Veterinarian" roles. His movies show us non-stop images of beautif
