This is @CorEyPTownsend, clear your calendars and grab your best bereavement garment because today's the day we pay some R-E-S-P-E-C-T to the #QueenOfSoul: #ArethaFranklinFuneral #ArethaHomegoing
Our Editor-in-Chief @blacksnob is live at #ArethaFranklinFuneral and you’ll all be pleased to know that they did our auntie RIGHT.

The #QueenOfSoul is draped in a long gown, gold sequins and gold red bottom shoes. #ArethaHomegoing
They knew that they had to do the #QueenOfSoul right, because she would’ve been ready to tell each & every one of us about ourselves if we had her up there looking any type of way. #ArethaFranklinFuneral #ArethaHomegoing

I saw #CrazyRichAsians today and it was really good. But since there are some VERY VERY specific white people complaining about why black and Asian Americans are making a big deal out of this movie. I'll break it down for you.(A thread)
The last Hollywood film with a predominantly Asian cast was the "#JoyLuckClub" which was released 25 years ago. From the Motion picture association of America, on average 600 films made in America, are released every year. So about over 15,000 films have been made since 1993.
People like to point out since America is predominately white, they have more white cast movies. Asians are minorities in America (they make up about 5.6%). So by fair logic 5.6% of 15,000 movies (IN AMERICA) is about 840.

Program singular? So it’s not a milli for each proposed location?

Are they not set to make a billion off this picture? #WakandaForever
And globally they’re at the $709 million mark. Before it even goes to DVD/streaming/March it will hit a billion.
I applauded them doing more than
Zero outreach, which is often what other blockbusters & films featuring black pain do outside the film itself.

But this is black positivity. Majesty.

No, I was not downloading a bunch of #BlackPanther GIFs from Tumblr all like #WakandaForever.
What would give you that idea? Nakia is gorgeous and all but I'm not that pressed.
Yeah I agree, she's very beautiful @Lupita_Nyongo is half Yemeya Goddess, I feel you.

But you're missing the point.

I almost jumped out of my seat when...
My niece and my nephews say this to me now when they haven’t seen me all day.
Anytime they were onscreen together.

It's 4:30 am. Which means it's time for me not to be so exhausted that I can't get all the way in the bed and go to sleep.
On a regular night, I would tell you how frustrated I am with #myspoons and how I never knew being too fatigued to sleep was a thing.
But this is a Wakanda night (or morning. Whatever.) And this tired is so bursting with pregnant possibilities that.... I can even.
