Me, Morris and the Side Eye

January 8, 2009

Yep, fine behind Morris Chestnut stopped by the office and some how the camera caught me and him both giving the stink eye. . . I had just watched my new copy of Best Man over the weekend and now he has me excited to see "Not Easily Broken." Well, kinda excited and a scratching my head too since part of my New Year's Plam was to take a breather from the dating scene and this is the perfect date movie. I've been enjoying my own company so much I get the nerve to actually go to a movie alone. We'll see . . .

Well, I did get the nerve to watch the video of the BART officer shooting a young Black man in the back and that just made me really sad and whispering prayers for his family and baby. And honestly made me nervous thinking of one day being a mom to a Black man if I were so blessed. That's why it's so important to help build our community so our boys have chances to grow up and be the good men Morris plays so well on the big screen.

    "The Best Man is one of my favorite movies! The others, "Love Jones" and "Brown Sugar."

    I have to agree that the shooting upset me quite a bit. I have a 6 year old son and worry a lot.
