Amid the shooting deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling by police officers in Minnesota and Louisiana this week, rapper Lecrae spoke out against the "All Lives Matter" mantra, saying it's not applicable because black lives don't matter in America.
Many people have posted photos and video commentaries on social media with the hashtag "Black Lives Matter." Others are posting commentaries with the hashtag "All Lives Matter."
In a passionate Instagram post beginning with "#philandocastile," the Reach Records founder said using the phrase all lives matter is offensive, explaining: #AllLivesMatter hashtag is like spitting in the face of black folk. It comes off as extremely selfish and unsympathetic to a mourning person. Not because all lives don't matter. Of course they do. But it's very clear that black lives don't to many in this country. No one goes up to lung cancer patients and says 'Folks with breast cancer matter too!' #AllCancerPatients matter. That's Insensitive." more >>
An unauthorized book about the TV series "Star Trek" claims that a fight between Captain Kirk and an alien who had taken the form of Jesus Christ was originally in the script for "Star Trek: The Motion Picture."
The book, The Fifty-Year Mission: The First 25 Years, which is being released as fans await the summer movie "Star Trek Beyond," reveals that the 1979 movie, written by series creator Gene Roddenberry in 1975, ended with Kirk encountering an alien who had "assumed the image of Jesus Christ." That encounter then led to a fist fight on a bridge that had Kirk punching the Savior in the face.
It further claims that Paul McCartney, Barry Diller and John F. Kennedy were also written into the script. more >>
An image of Daryl Nixon and the television series' roughest antagonist yet, Negan, was spreading (an probably still is) in the internet as filming for the next season of AMC's hit shows continues.
After "The Walking Dead" ended season 6 with a very enigmatic approach, characters Daryl and Negan were spotted spending time together. Seeing how Negan marked the finale by killing someone from the collected group of important characters, it only shows how producers are building up a character that leaves the audience another guaranteed compelling dose of character contentment.
Holding his bloodthirsty baseball bat, Negan showed how merciless and how quick with his decisions he is in killiing someone whom we don't know yet. The only thing we're sure about is that whoever this brutal villain eliminated, it's going to leave a mark. Not unless of course, that in some possible and positive way, this is another camera angle trick done similarly to what happened to Glenn Rhee in the middle of season 6. more >>
