Kiki1...

Kiki Layne is from Cincinnati,Ohio. She attended DePaul University. Her next film is a screen adaptation of Richard Wright’s 1940 novel Native Son.
Her first acting role was with Lena Waithe in the pilot for the show The Chi, which was shot in 2015. Speaking to Vanity Fair, says she was always acting growing up and that her favourite movie as a child was, The Lion King. I used to watch it every day and create these extravagant stories with my Barbies and stuffed animals.”
Layne began her career attending a performing-arts school in Cincinnati, where she took the flute, then French horn and the trumpet. She later attended DePaul University in Chicago to study acting. After graduating she moved to LA where she landed her breakout role in the Barry Jenkins movie If Beale Street Could Talk.
Layne is outspoken about the injustices African American people face in the USA and the issue of representation of black people in films. Speaking to Vanity Fair, she says, “The black community faced [injustices] in the early 70s and still face them today, issues of wrongful incarceration and what the justice system looks like for black people growing up in poverty. But at the core of it is a really beautiful love story between Tish and Fonny. I don’t feel like I’ve seen this for young black actors—there’s this tenderness that I just don’t see.” She’s really making a big splash in the industry.

Resurrection of Black Manhood: Emasculation Continues…..(Part 2 of 4)

This is a great video by Dr Rick Wallace.  This brother examines the emasculation process of black men.  This os a very in depth video.  He makes some very valid points that black men need to pay attention too.

Black Male1

The tolerated, accepted and even promoted emasculation of African American men is setting an awful and unacceptable example for our young men. What woman looks at a man who wears a freakin dress and yet still considers him a man? Our brothers are not standing up in the community, in church or even in the home – if they are even there. The role as Head of the Household commanded by God is slowly being dismantled in African American families and our women have lost respect for African American men. At least Dave Chappelle took a stand against the plot of emasculation.

For those in our community who are offended, don’t be. You have to understand that the decisions you thought were your own were instead motivated by outside influences with hidden agendas. So now that we know the problem, what do we do to fix it? First we have to admit it. Second we have to expose it. Expose what? Expose the strategic and deliberate plan set in place to degrade African American men in masculinity, credibility, authority and value. Third we have to refuse to support it. This means we must not support anything than diminishes or devalues the masculinity and authority of our brothers – movies, TV shows, job openings, careers etc. The courts must see us as men, the police must see us as men, our women and children must see us as men, our communities must see us as men and every ethnic group, race or culture in this country must see us as men.

Fourth of all, we must require our women to respect us or we must go elsewhere. That also means, of course, that we men must respect each other, act like men, think like men and stand up like men, refusing to accept anything less from ourselves. We must in turn hold each other accountable guys. Fifth of all, we must hold our young men and boys accountable and set the right examples for them. This means telling them to pull their pants up, dust themselves off when they fall and get back in the game. We cannot accept weak men or boys.

Ladies, you must neither accept emasculated men or sons nor attempt to emasculate them. God has said the man is the head of the household because He said so, not because the man meets your standards ladies of what you think the head should be. Our women are going to have to accept that or they will become part of the problem instead of part of the solution. A real man will never sleep on the couch when he has a bed upstairs just as his woman does.

A real man will never get in the doghouse because he is not a dog. He is not “ya boy”. He is not “my n*gga”. He is not to be addressed with “what up dog” because he is not a dog. He is not going to the “crib” because he is not a baby. He must not be a homosexual because such perversion distorts roles in the family, goes against God, presents an awful example, confuses the young male children, decreases reproduction within our “race” and plays directly into the hands of those who want to take our manhood through emasculation. If you were created a man, be a man. I could care less if people are upset about this article or call me intolerant. Am I intolerant of sin, perversion and that which reduces our numbers in the African American community? You bet I am. I am not homophobic because I am not afraid of any man who walks this Earth, especially a homosexual, transgender, bisexual or otherwise man-less male. And thus I am not afraid to speak the truth. Tolerance is approval and I do not approve.

For those who accept your boys and young men being homosexual or emasculated, you have forgotten you can love your child without accepting his behavior. It is the responsibility of a father to place his children on the right path by raising them in the way they should go – not to accept when they go astray. Men must be men, not something somewhere between men, women and who knows what. I love my people and so I am speaking out, popular or not, politically incorrect or not. And we would do well to completely clean out the closet instead of supporting those who are coming out of it. The future, longevity and population growth of our people is at stake.

There is a plot being used against us just like those of the King Alfred Plan, REX 84, Cointel Pro and a host of other schemes to weaken our men and reduce our numbers. Physical slavery ended before it could finish the task so mental slavery picked up where physical slavery left off. But this time the plot is being implemented by using popular figures in the African American community, tricking our women into putting us down and tricking African American men into accepting or tolerating thee redefining of him as anything but a man.
