Some Like It Hot/ A New Take on an Old Film

I'd rather be a live bit - (explicit) then a dead brother. As an African American man during the Reagan years, I get this movie. How; as a young boy transitioning from 17 to 18, I ceased to be cute, none threatening and worthy of existence to being a worthless, no good bum. This is pretty much what Tony Curtis and Jack Lemon experience when the "Gun Joint" they're working in her busted by the fuzz ( police ). 
What two of my favorite actors experience is having to determine how much  is their masculinity in the face of hunger, murder and subzero temperatures. During my transition from "boy" to "man", I lived in Fort Wayne Indiana, KKK central, during the Reagan administration which sat Civil Rights Initiative gains back nearly thirty years. The impact of this action was that black men of various ages that were not firmly entrenched in areas of employment related to industrial or the emerging financial services and grey collar/tech workforce found t…

Review of King Christina (Starring Greta Garbo) 1933

The difference between the reality of Sweden's Thirty Year's Waras presented by Holly Wood vs its historical reality is that its epistemology unlike its result was unclear. It represented a Europe at war with Europe due to blatant conflict between Catholicism and Protestantism during the modern period of world history.  The film's heroine King Christina begins her reign as a child. It's after her introduction that we re-encounter her as a young woman about to be betrothed. What we find is that she has become a no nonsense, confident and competent woman that is well respected by her peers and subordinates. As stated by Ruth Stephen writer of the article Christina "One of the wittiest and most learned women of her age, Christina is best remembered for her lavish sponsorship of the arts and her influence on Europeanculture."(Christina, Britannica June 09, 2017). It's not until she questions the peasants about the effect of war upon the peasantry that her rul…

My Response to Christians on Transhumanism

The greatest sin of Christianity has been its attempt to maintain "White Male" supremacy at all costs -- even the cost of its own integrity. Is it any wonder why large groups of nonwhite individuals would eventually turn away from God; once they discovered the belligerent flaws within White Christian traditionalism. Thus; how many white Christians or Christians of any race or gender that prescribe to the nonsense of these traditions can be called children of God; let alone saved. "How can you say you love me, whom you have not seen, when you do not love your brother who you have seen". How can you be saved and be a racist! In short, who or what do you love more - God or privilege based upon skin color. If, members of humanity turn away from being human and become Gibbon/Giborim through transhumanism it will be those who have been unwillingly disinvested of their humanity by those who claim to know God, but insist upon degrees of whiteness being a measure of humanes…
