Kushite Kingdom Awards 2016

awards1

Welcome to the first Kushite Kingdom Awards! I usually deal with a lot of current events and topics my subscribers like to discuss.  But I’m not serious all the time.  I like to laugh and joke around like everyone else.  So I thought I would do something a little fun.  I also wanted to show a token of appreciation to all the black bloggers who have given me great information and food for thought. It’s a real battle out here in the blogosphere. And I appreciate all the words of encouragement from fellow bloggers.    This is not a real competition.  This is all meant in fun.  As you will see from some of the categories. But let me know your picks in the categories.  If enough people like this awards edition I may make it an annual event. So be sure to cast your votes and add anyone to the list I may have left out. My apologies to anyone that didn’t make the list.  Don’t hold it against me.  I appreciate all my subscribers. Peace.

Simone1....jpg

Born in Detroit, Michigan, Simone always knew she was meant to perform. Growing up, Simone spent years playing the violin, singing, and playing sports before she decided to focus on acting. While in her first year as an English major at Howard University, she decided to take a theatre for non-majors course. This class solidified her commitment to acting, and she graduated with a minor in Theatre arts. Following graduation, Simone traveled to Oxford, England, where she participated in the British American Drama Academy taking Master Classes with greats Ben Kingsley, Alan Rickman, and Jane Lapotaire. She then honed her craft performing in regional theatre in Detroit, Michigan before packing it all up and moving to Los Angeles. Simone has experienced success filming several short films, features and has begun writing and producing her own series of one act plays. In 2010, Simone will begin production on a self-written web series, and a documentary. She is currently on the Netflix series,Luke Cage.

Luke Cage: Hero for Black boys?

Luke Cage1....png

Last week I heard some co-workers talking about a new Netflix show,Luke Cage. It was two black co-workers going on about how it’s a show with a black superhero kicking ass.  I already knew about the character because I used to read the Luke cage comic book as a kid. I don’t have Netflix but I’ve seen the show advertised on television a few times. For those that don’t know,Luke Cage first appeared in Marvel Comics back in 1972. He was also known as Power Man. The basic story on him is he is a black man living in Harlem.  He was  wrongly convicted and unjustly imprisoned, was altered in a failed prison experiment that granted him unbreakable skin and superhuman strength. His skin can resist high-caliber bullets, puncture wounds, corrosives, biological attacks, and extreme temperatures and pressures without sustaining damage. With his street smarts, and unending determination to do right.  Luke was also a member of The Avengers and the Leader of Thunderbolts for a time.

I’ve always said that white superheroes were an extension of white supremacy.  Which is why white Hollywood finds it important to give the masses heroes like Superman,Batman,Iron Man,Captain America and Thor.  They all represent white power and authority.  Which is why they always win in the end.  It’s also to show white dominance over other races.  So as teenager I liked reading comic books like the Black Panther and Luke Cage.  Most children like to see an image of themselves in a strong and powerful position.  But we have to be mindful of the image that Hollywood gives us of black people. There’s a few reasons why I don’t think this is a positive character for little black boys to admire.

The  show stars actor Mike Colter as Luke Cage.  As well as actors Alfre Woodard,Mahershala Ali,Rosario Dawson and Simone Missick.  The trailer looks pretty good.  It has some nice action scenes and a cool hip hop soundtrack. But one of the things that always disturbed me was Luke Cage was always fighting in the hood.  That’s nice that he was fighting all the drug dealers and gang leaders.  But he was using all that super strength and bullet proof melanin skin against other black people.  Why not use all that power against the racist power structure?  Why not expose the racist cops that kill black men,women and children?  I know that drug abuse and crime is a problem in many of our neighborhoods.  But it seems like they’re giving us an image of a powerful black man but he doesn’t really use it to free his people from racism and oppression.  It’s almost like he’s just doing the dirty work for the powers that be but doing nothing for his people in a poor community.

And of course he must have a white girlfriend right?  I will admit they did keep it true to the comic book.  In the comic book his girlfriend is superhero Jessica Jones. They have a daughter together. She has her own show on Netflix as well. Jones is played by actress Krysten Ritter.  Many of the sex scenes between them  are quite graphic. But this theme goes in line with the Hollywood agenda I have covered many times before.  Hollywood is scared of black love. They don’t like to promote it at all.  They rather show a big strong dark skinned black man race mixing with a white woman and make biracial babies.  The thought of two black people procreating scares the hell out of the white power elite.  The want us to dilute our beautiful melanin and black genetics. It’s obvious with by all the rap music in the soundtrack they want to market this to young black boys.  But this is not a show for black children.   We want black superheroes that are proud of their African heritage and culture.  We want heroes that marry black women and use their powers to protect their communities.  What good is all that power if it’s not used for the good of your people? It would be better if Luke Cage went after  people like Donald Trump,Hillary Clinton or Bill Gates.  Or used his power to fight the European and Asian power groups.  Taking out small time drug dealers is not making a big impact.   A black superhero should represent Black Power.

But we shouldn’t be surprised after  looking at Mike Colter’s real life wife(above).  I guess that’s why he was perfect for the role.  It shows the type of mentality he already has. Black people are so desperate for a hero many will accept a hero in any form. It doesn’t matter if the image or message is not productive for our people. The bottom line is this show is giving us the same old big Black Buck stereotype.  Just a Buck for hire.  Nothing more…nothing less.  I would advise black boys to go read about real black heroes like Nat Turner,Marcus Garvey or Malcolm X.  This show has nothing to offer you.
