    Its funny, somewhere else in the world wide web some one referred to Yetide Badaki , who portrayed an interpretation of Yemanja in the show "American Gods", who said she wants to play Storm of the X-Men. 

    BUT, circa 2015,. a Black woman named Maya Glick < https://aalbc.com/tc/blogs/entry/92-story-collections/?tab=comments#comment-61 > ustilized Kick starter to make her own successful Storm inspired independent film


    Now, if the Black community in the USA has a member who owns the largest film studio in the USA < https://aalbc.com/tc/profile/6477-richardmurray/?status=1835&type=status > Then I don't comprehend what Badaki is waiting for. Black individuals own movie studio lots, not all used. A Black woman, who to my knowledge has made less money than Badaki, has already figured out how to finance her own short film. What is the hold up?

    As I said previously in this very community. The BlackWood always existed. The problem is, what do black individuals want from the Black film industry? Is it respecting our unique relationship to the film industry < SOUTH SIDE HOME MOVIE PROJECT >  which is part of film industry started in the late 1800s <  LINKS TO EXAMPLES OR CONTENT > ? OR do is it nothing from the Black film industry and rather participation in the White film industry commonly called Hollywood? I say some black folk want the former, others want the latter. And... that is fine. But, when Black people talk about what they want, they have no need to ask, unless they are asking whites in Hollywood, cause they can create today.

  3. Game Builder Garage for Nintendo doesn't allow everything possible with the system. But, a game like the old Kung Fu is doable. I only made two boards, showing two different enemies. I will love for game builder garage to have a way to share beyond system to system or through nintendo's data service. But if any are interested in advancing this game, lets go for it.

  9. In this heat... you have to pay me money to get into a suit like this. I have been fortunate. I have seen offline, OFFLINE:) a mecha <stilts everybody>, a transformer, who can be rolled <if only he could carry a small engine:) in the suit >, a glittering princess that literally had children following her like slaves <I am not kidding, i never share photos or videos of my life so...> I have seen some great cosplay offline. I saw someone be a huge muppet and yes, they did it the whole day <they had so much sweat when they took of that helmet... not me man>

    the following is online. I never saw this with my eyes.  

    Oh darth :)

    2:02 the breasts on that woman:) amazing the power of being taped, the power of cosplay environments. that is why the chinese government banned alot of that kind of cosplaying and yes I have seen how backed up some men are when a woman cosplays in something similar. 





  10. At first, when I saw the following video, I thought, making alot out of nothing. Like the many characters who in one way or another had a surprising new edition into their ransk: female thor: the gay robin . as a writer, I always say, I don't care what any writer does with any character not my own. For my own characters I have a key caveat. Don't say your manipulation has anything to do with my character unless I say so.  I can't stand when any artist speaks for another artist's imagination. To rephrase, if I make a character plus the world that character lives in, if you manipulate my character or make some version of my character in my world, please don't say I concur to that or it is appropriate, unless I say so. 

    To that end, this spider man of universe something is fine. Stan Lee supported the multiverse. And he was open for artists to do what they want. So I have full acceptance to this new spider man. 

    But, the video presenter below makes some good points. 

    First, is this spider man a black superman/black green lantern style character? of course

    Second, is the multiverse a cheap way to create versions of characters to satsify audiences for films especially? yes it is.

    Third, is the multiverse problematic for comics? 100% the writing for comics becomes silly. 

    Fourth, is this design crude? I think it is. why yellow? why stand like that? why a fashion designer? The people online I know who are members of the lgbtq+ community would call this baiting I believe. ala like the original luke cage, which is baiting. the urban negro hero is easy to say, we got one know:)

    Fifth, is this done for readers? No But the video maker doesn't comprehend that, it is alright.


    I am a fan of The three musketeers from Dumas, very few films have ever been fair to the books. But that is ok. And that is what comic book fans have to realize. The film industry has taken over the storytelling of the comic book industry. It isn't that comic books are bound to films. but the makers of the highest profile comic books are looking to use the characters to promote films. Sequentially,comic book readers have to curate their reading or acquisitions far more than in the past. or they will get caught into comic books whose sole purpose is to make a character or attach a plot point to a film, whose audience mostly will not read the comics.

  13. Emmett Till and justice 


    Emmett Till's family seeks the arrest of a woman after a 1955 warrant is found
    June 29, 20229:04 PM ET

    A team searching a Mississippi courthouse basement for evidence about the lynching of Black teenager Emmett Till has found the unserved warrant charging a white woman in his 1955 kidnapping, and relatives of the victim want authorities to finally arrest her nearly 70 years later.

    A warrant for the arrest of Carolyn Bryant Donham — identified as "Mrs. Roy Bryant" on the document — was discovered last week by searchers inside a file folder that had been placed in a box, Leflore County Circuit Clerk Elmus Stockstill told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

    Documents are kept inside boxes by decade, he said, but there was nothing else to indicate where the warrant, dated Aug. 29, 1955, might have been.

    "They narrowed it down between the '50s and '60s and got lucky," said Stockstill, who certified the warrant as genuine.

    The search group included members of the Emmett Till Legacy Foundation and two Till relatives: cousin Deborah Watts, head of the foundation; and her daughter, Teri Watts. Relatives want authorities to use the warrant to arrest Donham, who at the time of the slaying was married to one of two white men tried and acquitted just weeks after Till was abducted from a relative's home, killed and dumped into a river.

    "Serve it and charge her," Teri Watts told the AP in an interview.

    Keith Beauchamp, whose documentary film "The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till" preceded a renewed Justice Department probe that ended without charges in 2007, was also part of the search. He said there's enough new evidence to prosecute Donham.

    Donham set off the case in August 1955 by accusing the 14-year-old Till of making improper advances at a family store in Money, Mississippi. A cousin of Till who was there has said Till whistled at the woman, an act that flew in the face of Mississippi's racist social codes of the era.

    Evidence indicates a woman, possibly Donham, identified Till to the men who later killed him. The arrest warrant against Donham was publicized at the time, but the Leflore County sheriff told reporters he did not want to "bother" the woman since she had two young children to care for.

    Now in her 80s and most recently living in North Carolina, Donham has not commented publicly on calls for her prosecution. But Teri Watts said the Till family believes the warrant accusing Donham of kidnapping amounts to new evidence.

    "This is what the state of Mississippi needs to go ahead," she said.

    District Attorney Dewayne Richardson, whose office would prosecute a case, declined comment on the warrant but cited a December report about the Till case from the Justice Department, which said no prosecution was possible.

    Contacted by the AP on Wednesday, Leflore County Sheriff Ricky Banks said: "This is the first time I've known about a warrant."

    Banks, who was 7 years old when Till was killed, said "nothing was said about a warrant" when a former district attorney investigated the case five or six years ago.

    "I will see if I can get a copy of the warrant and get with the DA and get their opinion on it," Banks said. If the warrant can still be served, Banks said, he would have to talk to law enforcement officers in the state where Donham resides.

    Arrest warrants can "go stale" due to the passage of time and changing circumstances, and one from 1955 almost certainly wouldn't pass muster before a court, even if a sheriff agreed to serve it, said Ronald J. Rychlak, a law professor at the University of Mississippi.

    But combined with any new evidence, the original arrest warrant "absolutely" could be an important stepping stone toward establishing probable cause for a new prosecution, he said.

    "If you went in front of a judge you could say, 'Once upon a time a judge determined there was probable cause, and much more information is available today,'" Rychlak said.

    Till, who was from Chicago, was visiting relatives in Mississippi when he entered the store where Donham, then 21, was working on Aug. 24, 1955. A Till relative who was there, Wheeler Parker, told AP that Till whistled at the woman. Donham testified in court that Till also grabbed her and made a lewd comment.

    Two nights later, Donham's then-husband, Roy Bryant, and his half-brother, J.W. Milam, showed up armed at the rural Leflore County home of Till's great-uncle, Mose Wright, looking for the youth. Till's brutalized body, weighted down by a fan, was pulled from a river days later in another county. His mother's decision to open the casket so mourners in Chicago could see what had happened helped galvanize the building civil rights movement of the time.

    Bryant and Milam were acquitted of murder but later admitted the killing in a magazine interview. While both men were named in the same warrant that accused Donham of kidnapping, authorities did not pursue the case following their acquittal.

    Wright testified during the murder trial that a person with a voice "lighter" than a man's identified Till from inside a pickup truck and the abductors took him away. Other evidence in FBI files indicates that earlier that same night, Donham told her husband at least two other Black men were not the right person.
