Lena Waithe On British Actors Playing American Roles, Black Stories In Hollywood + 'Queen & Slim'



Lena Waithe stopped by Ebro in the Morning and dropped tons of gems about black actors in Hollywood, the debate about British actors and actresses playing American roles, how films should start releasing movies which show more of the black experience, and more.


She also goes in depth about the makings of 'Queen & Slim', the influence behind it, its soundtrack, and more.

She said Dainel Kaluuya is our Paul Robeson so Mentally Ill Lesbians Strike Again!!! Paul Robeson was a brave man who put his life on the line for black civil rights and the country tried to paint him as a communist and evil for that. They never mention that if someone is entertaining communism it is because their current country or island is oppressing them under the current government structure or just like Fidel Castro sent troops to f*ght apartheid in South Africa but he is painted as an evil communist. Here in America with racists abusing and murdering blacks and lynching them but Paul was supposed to be the real wrong person by not sitting on his hands in this alleged free country and just taking it laying down not go out and seek alternatives that can help save your people from this country they built for free and were never paid reparations for it. Paul is the troublemaker according to white supremacy and the evil people in charge. And this "woman" has the balls to compare Robeson the legend to Kaluuya.

she may be talented but as a person she is a sucka. Aziz put the spotlight on shorty with master of none and let her direct an entire episode about her life as a lesbian which got her awards and as soon as that bimbo tried to metoo aziz on some bullsh*t, Lena automatically backed away from aziz and did not come to his aid. I like her work but as a person, i can never rock with her

I would certainly say so.

It's pretty common for them to do this mindfu*k these days, where the "females" are actually adopting the styles of men. So it looks like you may simply be looking at a lesbian.

But they can't "mindfu*k" the bone structure, and there are two distinct types; male or female. I haven't seen any more of this person than this picture so I'd honestly need to see more to say 100% for sure, but it's going to turn out to be a man I'm willing to bet.


They don't present the image of real females to the public, as a rule.

That's nothing but a man.

I guess he has fat lips, or something. But that's a male eyebrow ridge, male receding forehead. You can see the beginning of a male receding hairline.

I hope Laura Stylez doesn't turn out to be a man.

I don't know how it works with radio personalities, but I had been wanting to smash that.

I saw this movie called Ready Player One & itís in that movie, I wasnít sure if itís a man or woman but thanks, you just confirmed itís real identity to me

Why do you think the media/government/whatever are tryna confuse the masses by making us think men are women & women are men? What are they trying to achieve? & why are transformers, homos, feminization etc on the rise? Is the end goal depopulation?

Bro, I believe it's multifaceted.

The so-called "elites" worship a transgendered idol, the 'baphomet'. Many consider this idol as to be Satan.

But this activity has been going on since Biblical times; and is both recorded in the Bible, as well as prophesied as to occur in the "last days."

Celebrity worship, is worship of the "image of the beast."


And yet I also agree that depopulation plays a large role in this agenda. Certainly, as it would be much easier to control a smaller population, particularly when it is forced to rely on the state to facilitate reproduction (as would be the case if the majority of people were to become so-called, 'non-binary'.)


For now, what can be verified for certain is that this phenomenon is real.


Some people may not "believe" in the scriptures. And yet here we are.

Shout to Paul Robe, and salute to you for knowing. I actually did a report in high school on how MLK Jr was a communist. I didn't even know that there was a lot of controversial talk about him being a commie in his day. Using that buzzword to paint him as problematic and anti American. I did my report based off of what I saw from him. At the time I knew plenty of people who were proud Communists in my school, including Cubans. I didn't think anything of it until my teacher mentioned our history with the witch hunts and sh*t
