Friday Fives

In honor of Black History Month, today's fives are Black-centric. Enjoy, crackers.

1. Who is your favorite black actor

Will Smith, in a movie you may not have seen. Six Degrees of Seperation. It is the best acting I have seen since Forrest Gump (the best acted movie of all time). Netflix it, it is really good. Everything he has done since then is almost entirely pop crap. That movie, though, makes up for all of it. Dude should have got an Oscar. Also, Ving Rhames (sp>) should be mentioned. You know him as Marcellus Washington from Pulp Fiction. Great role, but not necessarily great acting. Before he was famous, though, he played Don King. It was some made for TV movie I think, years ago. It was called :I think) 'Only in America'. It was amazing acting, as he played boxing promoter Don King. I can't say enough about this, so you must seriously rent it. It is a helluva story, and was very well done too.

2. Who is your favorite black politician

Alan Keyes, because he says the dumbest shit imaginable. Dude is a half wit, and a favorite of mine when he is in an election. If my google were working better, I would link up a storm of Alan Keyes-isms.

3. What do you think about Al Sharpton?

I like Al. I listened to Al during the debates and the stuff he said made perfect sense to me. I especially liked his answer about gay marriage. He explained it beautifully. He said it was not a state issue because it was a civil rights issue, which makes it Federal. Not allowing gays to marry, he reasoned, was like not allowing blacks to marry. I completely agree with that logic.

4. What black actor is over-rated? DEnzel Washington. He plays the same smug bastard in every film. Dude could not act is way out of a wet paper sack. Stop lauding him. It does not make you look either smart, or racially sensitive. It makes you a tool.

5. What are your thoughts on the Bill Cosby controversy?

I think he made some very insightful and true comments. I have no problem with what he said. I can say that it is a very good thing a black man said them. If a white man said those comments, the cities in America would still be burning.

I enjoy your site. Thank you for the overated Denzel comment.

Personally my favourite black male (sorry I am from South America so I call myself black) actor (US) is Laurence Fishbourne - Othello and alltime favourite is Chiwetel Ejiofor. British guy from the UK. He did a great film with Hilary Swank called Red Dust about the truth & reconciliation commission in South Africa.
Alan Keyes -tee hee. Uhm words cannot describe my awe for that joker especially once he let himself be parachuted into the Illinois election.
