The friend zone is that fucked up purgatory you end up in when foolishly believe that bullshit about friendships lead to knowing a woman carnally or relationships. What does happen is that you end up being her "gay friend," and you get to do wonderful things like go shopping with her, take her out eat (with you sometimes paying the bill,) you get to her about her troubles and the best part is you get to her about the dude she does want to suck and fuck. You have effectively become her "manpon" i.e. her "emotional tampon." When do finally get the nuts to holla at her you those words no man wants to hear from the object of his desires, "Let's just be friends."
The fact of the matter is the women want to suck, fuck, and receive sloppy facials from dudes that get them to feel a certain kinda way emotionally and gets their 'ginas tingling. They want dudes that aren't afraid of their sexuality and aren't afraid of showing a sexual interest in them. In short if your in a chicks friend zone, "abandon all hope for ye who enter here."
Lupita Nyong'o over halley berry as storm , yay or nay? (if it were possible that is )
She's definitely pretty enough, (hell Storm parents even migrated to Nyong'os' native Kenya so there's no with the accent.) My problem is Nyong isn't thick enough or tall enough to be Ororo. I think it's fair to say that Ororo does have the same build as Diana. However, I'm willing to trade a lack of a body and height for an actual Kenyan.
I'm interested in actually getting shit done, and winning, so I'mma ride with the SCLC thankyouverymuch.
Apparently that organization was led by some "Martin Luther King" guy.
Did pretty well for themselves IIRC.
Sure the Panthers were cool and had guns. But ya'll seem to be forgetting how many snitches, traitors, and snakes infested the BPP. Leaders couldn't get along or agree on basic strategy. In the 70s it all fell apart and niggas started slangin. Huey Newton became a dope fiend and got murdered after walking out of a crack house. And Eldridge Cleaver became a goddamn Ronald Reagan worshipper. (i can't decide which is worse)
Miss me with that letting white- muthafuckas-abuse you shit.
Hold the phone. That shit was a STRATEGIC DECISION by people who knew that fighting violence with violence would be suicide. We ain't talkin bout South Africa here. Black People were severely outnumbered and outgunned. Anybody that thinks guerrilla warfare and terrorism would've ended Jim Crow is high. Probably would've ended with black people in concentration camps.
MLK did not simply send dudes out to get their ass whipped. He set that shit up beautifully. They DELIBERATELY picked Birmingham because they knew Bull Connor would go fucking crazy in response. MLK understood how America worked and used that. He pimped the media, played politicians, knew how to exploit people's hopes and fears.
So let's review:
Black Panthers achievements = free breakfasts for kids, fucking w/ the police, storming the state capitol, convinced Ronald Reagan to embrace gun control (HI JANKLOW)
SCLC achievements = damn near everything else we actually thank the Civil Rights Movement for achieving
Now the Black Liberation Army on the other hand...............
I hear you, the question is which group would you had joined, not which one had the most effective, realistic, sound policies and strategies. I would have joined the Panthers based on my mindset, temperament, and attitude, which would have been the one a lot of cats have now, these white muthafuckas aren't about to give us shit and anything we want, we're going to have to take it. Besides I would have been in fed pen with Ali for evading draft. I would be damned if the government was going to demand that I go and fight for the freedom and liberation of some cats in Vietnam, when my people in American weren't free and liberated.
Comic books have been around close to eighty years and during those eighty years we've been blessed with not only some of greatest works of fiction, but the greatest figures in history of popular culture. Unfortunately there have been some straight up bullshit that has occurred in those seven plus decades. Here are some that stand out in my mind.
9) Fucking with the Numbering
There's some thing special having Action Comics # 900 and knowing that this particular volume of the series goes back to depression and sprung forth from the imagination of two teenagers from Cleveland. Then, in vain attempt to catch the interest of the speculators, you start the series over with # 1. Shit is hella weak and is insulting to true fanboys. Like I read somewhere, somebody who isn't going to buy Action Comics # 904 isn't suddenly going to turn around and buy Action Comics #1 from the New 52. A perfect example of this with X-Men. For those of you who are unfamiliar with history of the series. The X-Men weren't always Marvel most popular superhero team. As a matter of fact the "strangest heroes of them all have a very had time gaining traction. Not even the legendary team of Denny O'Neil and Neal Adams could boost sales.
It was only when Lein Wein, Dave Cockrum, John Bryne, and Chris Claremont, (with the infusion of a new team,) that saved X-Men from cancellation. Now when Strom, Logan, and Nightcrawler'em took over the book, the numbering didn't start over at # 1 it continued to from issue 93.
The death of character in of itself isn't a a wack concept. Some of the GOAT story arcs in comics are the ones which result in the death of a character. It's that the fandom knows that the deaths in comics aren't permanent, the writers are putting you this emotional roller coaster, only for the character to be brought back in a year. Also we have yet another attempt to tap into the speculators market. These muthafuckas needlessly drive up the cost of books because they think they've just bought a collectors item.
Where as the death of a character is usually some epic as storytelling, subsequent resurrection is often uninspired and contrived storytelling. The prime examples of this are the resurrections of Jason Todd and Bucky Barnes. It used to be there was a saving about Marvel, "Only two people stayed dead. Uncle Ben and Bucky." Low and behold Bucky is brought back. Some how he was saved from the plane wreck, trained by the Russians and was fucking Widow.
Then there's what has to be the one of or either the worst resurrection in the history of the medium, the Resurrection of Jason Todd. I probably took issue with the resurrection of Jason Todd because the fans voted him dead and as a result we got great stories with The Batman not dealing with Jason's death and the best of all we got Timmy.
How ever Judd Winick decides to bring Jason back and does it in the weakest way possible. Superboy Prime is punching some cosmic shit. The cosmic shit gets in Jason's casket and he's brought to life. WTF? The irony is Winick is the same dude that wrote Under the Red Hood, and Jason's resurrection in that was hella better and made a lot more sense.
6) The DC Comics Multiverse
Rex doesn't like the Multiverse. The shit was, has, and always will be a fucking wack ass concept. Julius Schwartz would have been better off saying that Golden Age Heroes went into retirement, were captured by aliens, went rogue, on that Steve Rogers frozen status, had amnesia, anything other than that Multiverse bullshit.
5) There Are Too Many Green Lanterns for Sector 2814
Hal Jordan, Jon Stewart, Guy Gardner, Kyle Rayner and Simon Baz are all Green Lanterns, but there's all signed to the same fucking sector. From what I recall all the other sectors have one GL, but the sector the earth is in has five, (six if you count Alan Scott,)
And the creation of Simon Baz was some political shit. I don't have a problem with Muslim characters, (as long as there some balance,) but why did dude have to be a GL? Especially there's already GL in this sector.
4) Wolverine Getting an Origin
It was going to happen sooner or later, but I preferred Wolverine being this mysterious character that nobody knew about. Also, how did you get Logan out James Howlett, it seems as matter of principle that Logan should have been some where in his government name.
3) Wolverine Always Having Claws
This was something the retconned. Originally, Wolverine's claws was a result of the adamantium bonding process, but when Magento stripped Logan of his adamantium, it was later revealed that he always had the claws/
2) The Legion of Super Pets
Nuff said, Ironically, I will admit that I want a white pit so I can name him "Krypto and a if I should came up on a brown cat, I'll name him Streaky.
1) Faggot Ass Characters
Like in most areas dominated by creative popular, the comic book industry is left leaning. Being aligned with the fag agenda, the industry felt it was their duty to support the gay agenda and indoctrinate the youth by normalizing this behavior and showing it as normal in their books. It seemed for a minute that everybody title was like a cast of MTV's "Real World where there was a least one faggot or dyke in every book. Shit is disgusting. You can promote fagdom, but there's not a conservative or devout Christian character to be found in any of the Big Two companies.
I'm fucking with the Panthers simply based off the self defense policy. Miss me with that letting white- muthafuckas-abuse you shit. I would have been of the frame of mind that since the Panthers have a policy of self defense with out have been our responsibility to provide the non-violent organizations with some sort of the protection. I'm feeling the Panthers stance on self reliance as far as improving the community.
