Denzel Washington is 53. The dude in this picture is supposed to be a "Denzel Washington impersonator". Uh, yeah...good luck with that.
Nichelle Nichols is 75. Wonder how she feels about Zoe Saldana playing her role in the upcoming "Star Trek" movie?
Since we're on the subject of Nichelle, here is a clip where she played a hardcore pimpette in the Isaac Hayes Blackexploitation classic "Truck Turner". I'm thinking maybe it's a good thing that this may be the only movie she ever made other than Star Trek....some people should just never attempt to utter a cuss word. LMBAO at the line: "They call her Turnpike, cause you gotta pay to get on, and pay to get off!":
Also, just missing the "WTF Volumes".....there was some huge poll done in the UK the BFI (British Film Institute) did on the top 100 Black Film Icons. First of all, there are 100? Are they including cartoon voices?
In the Black Male category, the top three are Denzel Washington, Morgan Freeman, and Sidney Poitier. Okay, check, everything seems to be in good order there.
But in the Black Female category, the top 3 are as follows:
I mean, WTF? Of course I have no problem with Ms. Dandridge, but Nichelle? Ummmm, she's a TV actress---hello? And I won't even begin to comment on that Hattie McDaniels bulls--t. Don't even get me started. To be fair, tho, they misspelled Nichelle's name in the poll, so what do they really know?
F'd up invisibility and screwed up Black perceptions have a passport all over the world.
