*Sigh* ‘The Last Black Man In San Francisco’ Nails These 3 Hard Truths About Gentrification

Filed by Abbey ShoreAbbey Shore

This month, The Last Black Man in San Francisco finally hit theaters after getting major buzz at the Sundance Film Festival, and it’s definitely worth the hype.

The story is co-authored by director Joe Talbot and actor Jimmie Fails, who also stars in the movie. In a semi-biographical narrative, Fails plays a man (also named Jimmie) who doesn’t have a home to his name. His dream house is the one that was once owned by his grandfather in the heart of San Francisco.

Due to gentrification and neighborhood politics, Jimmie’s family lost the house a while ago and now he’s fighting to get it back, despite White people already occupying the residence. Jimmie’s quirky playwright friend, Montgomery, tags along for the ride.

 

Though gentrification is a common issue across America, Last Black Man beautifully laid out the personal impact of Black people being pushed out of neighborhoods in three meaningful ways.

Hit the flip to peep three hard truths the movie took on to reinforces how gentrification impacts real people.

Keep it all for yourself my love
Cos it really don’t matter to me

You just need to find your way
All your things is at my place
I’m gonna throw them out today

No more, no more, no more, no more

Every little thing that you asked I would give to you
Every little thing that you asked I would give to you
Every little thing, every little thing, every little
Every little thing that you asked I would give to you

Every little thing that you asked I would give to you,
You know you never asked me twice
I’ve been keeping tabs on the things that I did for you
I think it’s time you paid the price

"Empire" Actor Bryshere Gray Arrested In Chicago

Filed by Donte DishnerDonte Dishner

Chicago, IL – Actor Bryshere Gray, who plays one the Lyon children on the FOX series Empire, was arrested on Thursday (June 13).

TMZ says Chicago police pulled Gray over for a registration issue. Not only did the tags not match the car, ficers quickly discovered he was driving his 2014 Rolls Royce without a license or insurance.

"Empire" Actor Bryshere Gray Arrested In Chicago

Gray was arrested, booked on three misdemeanors and released on a $2,000 bond, according to the Chicago Police Department. He was cited for driving without a license or insurance and not having proper registration.

Empire is in its final season. Co-creator Lee Daniels reportedly believes the show’s demise is due to the controversy surrounding Empire actor Jussie Smollett.

The actor/singer was accused staging his own hate-fueled attack in January and eventually charged with 16 felonies related to the incident. Prosecutors ultimately dropped all charges in March, while Empire was renewed for Season 6 — without Smollett.


XXXTENTACION Affiliate Reportedly Shot In The Head

Filed by tr21ktr21k

Pompano Beach, FL – An affiliate slain rapper XXXTENTACION was reportedly shot in the head in Florida over the weekend but expected to survive.

According to several tweets from WPLG Local 10 reporter Madeleine Wright, the shooting took place in Pompano Beach, Florida outside a local convenience store. Family later named the victim as 16-year-old aspiring rapper C Glizzy (real name Christian Moore).

“Family members identify the teenager shot in the head in Pompano Beach yesterday as Christian Moore, an up-and-coming rapper known as CGlizzy,” Wright tweeted on Sunday (June 16). “He underwent surgery for his injuries at Broward Health North.

While at Broward Health North, Moore’s mother said doctors removed a bullet from her son’s head. Although he’s heavily sedated and currently unable to speak, his mother believes he’ll make a full recovery.

“Doctors removed a bullet from the head 16-year-old rapper CGlizzy during surgery at Broward Health North, according to his mother,” Wright said in another tweet. “@browardsheriff is searching for the assailant. CGlizzy was friends with XXXTentacion, who was fatally shot during an armed robbery last year.”

Gun violence is far too common these days. X was shot and killed in June 2018 as he was leaving RIVA Motorsports in what police believe was a botched robbery.

It’s unclear what the motives behind Moore’s shooting are. The Broward County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating.
