    Idris Elba confirmed for a movie adaptation of The Dark Tower, but will color/race be a factor, yet again?  Seriously, we should all be so lucky to be Elbanians.

    Deadpool fans went to see to see a sneak peek and stayed to see the WHOLE movie.  How much more goodwill can this project garner with its fans??  Rumor has it that premiere night goody bags will include booze and vouchers for prostitutes!  Michael Scott dies laughing at all the “tent pole saturation” in this episode.

    Democratic run, Flynt, Michigan, are knowing poisoning their black voters.  

    For the second year in a row, the Academy has only nominated white actors and Jada Pinkett Smith is irked.

    The 44-year-old actress aired her feelings on Facebook, even mulling a boycott of the award show.

    "At the Oscars, people of color are always welcomed to give out awards, even entertain, but we are rarely recognized for our artistic accomplishments," Pinkett Smith wrote on Facebook and Twitter. "Should people of color refrain from participating all together?"

    "People can only treat us in the way in which we allow," the "Magic Mike XXL" star added. "With much respect in the midst of deep disappointment, J."

    “She thinks that if people do not speak out things will never change,” reports Rob Shuter of naughtygossip.com. “Most of the folks that vote are old white men. This has to change. She doesn’t care if speaking out hurts her career, she cannot sit silent anymore."

    When the nominations were announced snubbing Will Smith (“Concussion”), Idris Elba “Beasts of No Nation”), and Samuel L. Jackson (“The Hateful Eight”), there was an immediate backlash on Twitter. 

    Objectors used the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite to highlight the fact that the only nomination for the critically acclaimed “Straight Outta Compton” when to the two white screenwriters, while “Creed,” a movie starring a black man and directed by a black man, only recognized Sylvester Stallone’s performance.

    Commissioned by Submission with Idris Bolton

    in Christianity

    Philadelphia native Idris Bolton was raised in a single parent household by his father. Being home alone often he began engaging in sexual contact, which became a major vice for him. After high school graduation Idris started promoting events for artists such as Nicki Minaj, P. Diddy, Drake and more. He gained fame, money and great success which brought him lots of women and enemies.

    Idris didn’t hold back on taking advantage of every opportunity he had to be with women who were willing to give themselves to him. Yet, there was one who captured his heart. She was a childhood friend whom he had a great bond with before the success. They soon began to build a relationship, but this didn’t stop him from stepping out when he wanted to. Facing problems in the city that made him successful, with the girl he loved, and his relationship with his father, Idris found himself with just him and God!

    He received an invitation to go to church. First, he was reluctant about going because that wasn’t his custom, but made the decision to go anyway.  After all, what else did he have to lose?  Idris explained his experience as divine. It was the best thing he ever experienced. He felt like the Pastor was speaking directly to him. That day Idris accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.  Now, he was on a mission to get his girlfriend back, but she was still unwilling to be with him. She was pursuing a greater relationship with Christ and was unsure if going backwards was the move God wanted her to make. So, Idris spent this time alone getting to know the Lord. While still working in the field of event planning and promoting Idris still faced problems and temptations from women.

    He received a calling from God and walked away from event promotions making up to $30,000 an event to follow and to be pleasing to God.
