We’ve seen the movie and find it entirely deserving. An important moment for the culture.

    Great to hear!! I was a bit concern about the potential white backlash due to some of the overt showboating taking places that i’ve observe in internet land. But good news here.

    I have been polling some of my black associates about their interest in the movie. While I respect everyone’s personal taste, am I wrong for feeling disappointed if they don’t show interest? *kanye west shoulder shrug*? I mean this is big for our community…. the blackness, the cultural promotion,….i mean support this…support it..

      Funny I see everyone excited about this and then when I ask if they are also going to go see “a wrinkle in time” or the animated Spider-Man movie with miles morales many of them shy away or say no. BP is huge but the other two films are too and Hollywood is just looking for an excuse for BP to be an exception not a new rule. Please go see all the big budget films starring black people this year. If the other two fail along with Pacific Rim 2 starring John Boyega Hollywood will just write BP off as being successful cause it was a marvel movie then go back to casting mainly whites in lead roles for big pictures.

      • Its me Gowrl February 15, 2018

        Girl shut up

      • Hmm February 15, 2018

        You’re correct.

      • Tay February 16, 2018

        I know it’s easy to blame Hollywood..
        And although Hollywood has been guilty of white washing for years (towards all cultures) they’re actually listening now.
        Pacific rim is a prime example

      • MusicLovah February 16, 2018

        @BAM ..my bad. My post implies hardly anyone was interested, but that wasn’t the case. Most was interested. I was disappointed by the few that wasn’t interested. I was expecting 100% interest.

    They’d offered me a small roll in this movie but I was doing my chitterlings circuit book tour. I was unable to make the shooting date as I had a book signing at Bonquisha’s Books and Chicken Wing spot.

    • Jeans February 15, 2018

      😂😂

    • Jasmine February 15, 2018

      I do not tolerate nor condone this ridiculous desire from you impersonating me. You need mental therapy to help you get over your obsession with me. I am not some ghetto hoodrat you can make fun of. I am a classy, well educated, and kind woman that deserves respect. I find your impersonation of me to be racist, evil, stereotypical, and defamatory. Get a life you miserable b|tch!

      • Jasmine February 16, 2018

        I take it all back I’m sorry i’m just a loser, please forgive me I am very sad and lonely. I’m still coming to terms that my ex left my for a white guy that’s why i’m so bitter towards white people.

      • Suicide Blonde February 16, 2018

        I’m sorry I keep impersonating Jasmine. I am on meth which makes me very vulnerable and my obsession with Jasmine is getting the best of me.

  6. Mark111 February 15, 2018

    Anything on era 150M the opening weekend is huge. I remember when Spider-Man 3 was the biggest opening at that number in 2007. Also this will be the biggest superhero marvel origin opening ever. #BlackPride

    • Jasmine February 16, 2018

      If you want to have pride then stop acting like scum 👩🏿🛩🔥

      • Hmmm February 16, 2018

        This comment has all the hallmarks of the that IGNORANT thing called Latina chick. Stop impersonating Jasmine heiffer and educate yourself.

      • Suicide Blonde February 16, 2018

  7. Suicide Blonde February 16, 2018

    I don’t know why I can’t quit my Jasmine impersonation addiction. I know I am making a fool out of myself because it is very obvious that it is me Suicide (aka the man behind that fake Latina chick account) doing all this. I take this blog site seriously because I have no life, no job, and no money to afford my trans-formation. I hate women, especially those that are opinionated like Jasmine so I’m going to keep impersonating her with my evil asss because she has everything I wish I had…

  8. February 16, 2018

    nice.

  9. JOHNVIDAL February 16, 2018

    See? This were the news that were going to be worth the mention and not the irrelevant number of the first day in the UK (which wa sa normal number). It´s amazing predictions. 150 was already huge. More is truly amazing.
    It´s a basic Marvel flick though. I´m in no way crazy about it just like I am not about any basic blockbuster.

    And LOL if suicide is truly the one impersonating Jasmine… Girl! You made it so easy for him to mock you when you tried to make us believe you have written books lol The jokes about that have been funny at least.

    • Jasmine February 16, 2018

      JOHNVIDAL I do not lie! I have written three books. Why is that so hard to fathom? Suicide Blonde is definitely impersonating and bullying me on this website but don’t worry I will be okay. That racist garbage bottom with diseased walls will reap what he sows and will regret ever coming for me.

      • Jasmine February 16, 2018

        I have written 3 books: Color By numbas (if you can count), Weave application for dummies and How To Get On Your Knees Like a Pro #GoogkeMeBitch
