Yo, real shit Barkhad Abdi shifted Captain Philips into a truly intense movie, they covered all aspects of terror, interests, just obligations to what both sides of the cast had to do to live and survive in the world, rather it be shipping cargo to taking the cargo by force.
He constantly maintained a very compelling performance throughout the movie.
And then you realize that was his first acting role.

Greatness bruh.

Let me tell you a story.  Once at a party, I had all the little girls sitting around me and I was asking them about their favorite parts of all the princess movies.  The birthday girl was sitting next to me, and tells me, “Princess, your skin is the same color as mine.”  I smile and agree, and try to move the game along, but she interrupts and says, “Your skin is brown and you’re a princess.  It’s the same color as mine, but you’re a princess.”

“Well, if my skin is brown and your skin is brown, and I’m a princess, then you must be a princess too.” I tell her.  And then I spent the next 10 minutes assuring all the black girls at the party that yes, they have lovely skin and yes, they can be princesses with me.

This happens at most of the parties I go to.  I have had my arm stroked, my hair patted, my skin color commented on more times than I can remember. I am not simply hired out to entertain a bunch of cute little girls dressed in poofy skirts who want to play with a big girl in a poofier skirt.  I am hired out because I am an affirmation. For these little black girls (and boys!  I’ve dazzled a few of them too) Princess Tiana is proof that for once, they can be special BECAUSE of the color of their skin, not IN SPITE OF.

Adding some of her pictures for emphasis.

For black native girls

Have you seen any changes in the industry in the issues of race, the issue of being a woman, and now being a woman over fifty?

Oh shit. Miss Alfre went there.  

Which is exactly where she should’ve gone. Where everybody should be, really.

Because a phenomenal debut in a big movie leads to even better roles for white actresses but for black actresses that may be the one and only huge role you get during the course of your career.

the only” African ” woman. Hollywood will give movies to. is Chalize theron…

I’m legit about to start watching Sesame Street again.

Abby’s got the right idea.

Sesame Street is kinky. I knew it!

Bless this adorable man.
