An activist group has launched a voter registration effort aimed at black voters at screenings of the “Black Panther” movie nationwide. Members of the Electoral Justice Project, an offshoot of the Movement for Black Lives, are seeking to motivate black voters and increase political engagement with the #WakandaTheVote campaign, the website Blavity reported. Wakanda is the fictional African nation featured in the long-anticipated Marvel film “Black Panther.” Kayla Reed, Jessica Byrd and Rukia Lumumba founded the Electoral Justice Project last year, and told Blavity that the movement has been effective “because we meet our communities where they are, whether that´s

Just how many regular normal whites may go to see this flick? Not me. I doubt there´s enough blacks in this country who go to movies to help it earn a profit. It may end up going straight to Netflix.

Register in person with three forms of ID, one a valid birth certificate and the other a photo ID and lastly a utility or rent bill showing residency. Other than that, throw the app out. Voting registrations are a State function, not a federal one.

Of course if it were Caucasians registering to vote at the Sound of Music it would be considered totally racist. But there is no way that black people can ever be considered racists, right?

Long-anticipated? If I never see this "look at me, I´m black" fantasy it will be too soon.

What white person in his right mind would enter a theater full of hyped-up on black power teens? It would be like walking through Harlem with a beanie and a propeller on your head and humming Dixie.

Those who go to see this movie are in the moment. Getting them to get their heads out of their cell phones long enough to vote is considerably more difficult. Dems know this. Voter registration on the left is about optics, PR, and giving credence to pollsters who oversample registered dem voters.and vote fraud.

Re #7 - I´m observing John Derbyshire´s points in his nonblack version of ´The Talk´.

(10) Thus, while always attentive to the particular qualities of individuals, on the many occasions where you have nothing to guide you but knowledge of those mean differences, use statistical common sense:

(10a) Avoid concentrations of blacks not all known to you personally.

(10d) Do not attend events likely to draw a lot of blacks.

Virtually all of my younger friends Black, White, Asian and Hispanic were quite anxious to see this film. And by younger I mean 40 years old or younger. Their opinion of it was very high. Box Office receipts were HUGE!! We were at the theater for another film this past weekend - the parking lot was packed. I predict it will take in a Billion Dollars world wide.

And, who names a movie after a 1960´s racial extremist, terrorist, organization? Or, was the Black Panther Party named after the Marvel comic?

Africans could actually have a version of Wakanda if they tried. Africa has the resources to make a great civilization. Unfortunately, corruption is rampant and there is a lack of ambition. Tribal culture, both here and there, makes the women do all the work while the boys hang out and get high. Besides, an advanced civilization requires a lot of math and science and engineering.

I saw it this weekend. It´s a good comic book movie. Marvel does this kind of thing well. It´s going to be very successful and profitable.

The Black Panther comic hero was created at roughly the same time the Black Panther Party was formed, but the two were not inspirations for one another.

I think the movie is being overly praised for the obvious reasons, and I could have done without some of the political undertones, particularly during the end credit scene. But I enjoyed it overall.

And my track record on this site should reassure you that this is not a left wing point of view talking.

The Justice Department inspector general referred its finding that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe repeatedly misled investigators who were examining a media disclosure to the top federal prosecutor in D.C. to determine whether McCabe should be charged with a crime, according to people familiar with the matter. The referral to the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office occurred some time ago, after the inspector general concluded McCabe had lied to investigators or his own boss, then-FBI Director James B. Comey, on four occasions, three of them under oath. It was not immediately clear how the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office responded to

Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, introduced legislation Wednesday aimed at dissuading President Trump from pardoning people involved in the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. The bill, called the Abuse of Pardon Prevention Act, comes on the heels of Trump’s pardon for Scooter Libby, the former chief of staff to former Vice President Dick Cheney who was convicted of lying to the FBI and obstruction of justice. Schiff’s legislation discourages the president from pardoning a person in connection to an investigation in which the president or a family member is a target,

Journalist Mike Allen of Axios recently said that one word described Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and that word was “unafraid.” The context for his remarks on Fox News’ “Special Report” was that Mueller had just spun off to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York a bit of his limitless investigation into President Donald J. Trump. Allen’s comment was like so many others from media and pundit types since the special counsel was launched. If there’s one word to describe the media’s relationship to Mueller, it’s “unquestioning.” Pundits and politicians have said, repeatedly, that he is

Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said America owes special counsel Robert Mueller “incalculable thanks” for agreeing to lead the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Bharara, who served as the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York until Trump fired him in 2017, penned Mueller’s blurb for the annual “Time 100” list and praised his long commitment to public service. “Mueller’s buttoned-down discretion has made him an enigmatic vessel into which polarized sides pour their hopes and fears. To millions, the special counsel is either a political savior or berserk villain. He is neither,” Bharara wrote. “He’s a

According to the Philadelphia department of health, the former official´s father, H.R. McMaster Sr., died on April 13 of blunt force trauma to the head.

Washington - Dozens of Democratic U.S. Senators on Wednesday introduced a resolution calling for Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt to resign on allegations of ethics lapses. Those relate to the agency’s purchase of a $43,000 sound booth for his office and spending on travel and security. The resolution was signed by 39 senators in the 100-member Senate, which is controlled by Pruitt’s fellow Republicans. Although Republicans can defeat it, the resolution is symbolically important because it represents the most senators ever to call for a Cabinet member’s ouster in resolution, its sponsors said.

McDougal said she is "relieved to be able to tell the truth" about her story. McDougal, who alleges she had a sexual relationship with Mr. Trump over 10 months in 2006 and 2007, had sued over the $150,000 contract she had with American Media, Inc., the company that owns The National Enquirer, for keeping her from speaking about it.

University of Michigan Professor Sarah Ensor published an academic journal article this month that argues that humans should establish erotic relationships with plants. Originally highlighted by the Twitter account New Real Peer Review, Ensor’s journal article explores the field of “ecosexuality,” a term which means the sexual relationship between humans and plants. Advocates in the field argue that the Earth needs to be treated with love. In addition to reducing harmful environmental practices, ecosexuals believe that humans should physically make love to the Earth.
