Not sure where you were heading and where you ended up. Murder is the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another. George Floyd? Not so. BLM? That's a self proclaimed Marxist organization. They capture the GF moment to reek havoc on our cities in their "summer of love". BTW, neither you nor I are or were immigrants. When you elect a Black president, you are no longer in "chains'. Stop with the BS. Now if your endeavor was to praise Black talent in the entertainment industry, I am with you. The woke crap, not so. But, don't you think all those Black entertainers could practice a bit of trickle down of their wealth to their own instead of whining about being enslaved. Gees, this is America, the land of opportunity where you can be what you want to be. I could go on and on but I think I've covered it

Thanks for this important perspective, Paul. The times they are a'changin'...

PT-Have you seen the opera? We have tickets to see it in the theater here on the 23rd. I just read Blow’s memoir- very powerful. I think Floyd’s death was a pivotal moment but I also think that movement was in the direction of including blacks in advertising and other media before that. I’ve been noticing it for awhile. About time too!

Jeff, to your point, Tyler Perry, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Oprah, Queen Latifah, John Legend, Alicia Keys and scores of athletes who have made it big have contributed way more than a trickle to their communities and the general public

Paul, very thoughtful essay. Thanks. And, I have seen the pics of you and Susaan with Ann. I just visited Susaan myself.
