S2S Wants you to Know that Kevin Hart "Loves" Black Women - Liars!

Well we know Black women love kevin Hart because Black women provided 60% of the ticket sales that made up Think Like a Man's 33 million dollar haul. This despite the fact that one of the movie's stars, Kevin Hart... HATES BLACK WOMEN! I thought it would be ESSENCE.com riding ot the rescue first to declare that Kevin "loves" the sisters, but Sister 2 Sister magazine beat them to it. Maybe ESSENCE was too busy trying to figure out what to do about their managing editor being called out for his facebook postings (tragic).

Because I never can mention this ENOUGH...

If you will recall, Mr. Hart once tweeted:

 "Light skinned women usually have better credit than [sic] dark-skinned women... Broke @$$ dark hoes...lol." - Kevin Hart

He then got mad when Black women had the nerve to be offended.

So Sister 2 Sister S2S, just declared that Kevin Hart "Loves" Black women. I wonder who their post could be in response to?:

He felt the heat recently after he posted some anti-Blackwomen hate speech on his Facebook page... ooops excuse me, his cousin posted it while he was in the restroom .. or something. 

Apparently, Kevin's fans didn't get the joke, and the comedian had to do some damage control. "I saw it, like, two days later and I see a lot of negative flack from it, so I had to fire him and let him go," he explained.

Charlamagne pointed out that people shouldn't take anything Kevin does too seriously since he's a comedian. The funnyman doesn't think that's an excuse because he knows that certain topics are just off limits among his fanbase.

"I know what they're on me about now," Kevin explained. "From, like, when I said the thing about the dark-skinned chicks a long time ago, I learned my lesson from  playing around."

He added, "I know the line that I can't cross." S2S.com

I'm sorry, y'all need more people.

In other news, on the heels of him insulting Black women everywhere... again, ESSENCE is proud to announce Kevin Hart has been added to the lineup of the ESSENCE music festival

Brilliant!

It's unfortunate that BW support these types of BM. I guess it's okay to insult us -- we will still support you. Hell, it's okay to hit us upside our heads like Chris Brown -- we will be your loudest supporters against "the evil White Man". Just wow.

OK, I have to say that although I in no way support Kevein Hart's ignorant Tweets or Chris Brown's violence against Black women (Brown also makes a 5 minute cameo in TLAM), the reason I want to see the movie is because of Taraji P. Henson and Michael Ealy, both of whom I love, and both that I feel deserve more screentime.

I know that part of that $30 mil will go to Kevin Hart, unfortunately, but part of it will also go to Henson and Ealy and other deserving actors who have been working on their craft forever and have had very limited chances to use their skills. And they've always been positive and never hated on US and always represent well. And yes, I do support their other roles - love Henson in "Person of Interest" and absolutely am a fan of Ealy as TeaCake in "Their Eyes Were Watching God". But I feellike those movies don't bring the DIRECT dollars - 'course, I could be wrong and just don't know.

I have to say, Blogmother, in cases like this, I feel like my dollars are supporting the other leading characters in the movies, not the comic side kick. I hate that the evils of a few ruin it for us all - I need to know how to work around the jerks, while supporting the good of us.

OK, I'm done now......I'm ducking, because I know it's coming.

April 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterHey There!

I am going to abstain from seeing this cause I do not dig the humor or the concepts it’s projecting. I am in no way so needy to see Black folks on the big screen that I'll watch inferior material. Whatcha pay for is whatcha get. While it would be great to say that the responsible party for the $33 million box office is a collective effort the facts are Kevin Hart will get a lion share of the accolades for the movie's success. It's a comedy and supposedly by all accounts Kevin Hart is funny in it. Go figure. In all fairness I do very few comedies and even fewer rom-com. TLAM will not be a pick for me since I have no desire to ensnare a man while acting like a man. The fact that the movie and the book that inspired it have made money shows on Black women as a collective. Murphy's Law of Life: He who holds the gold, makes the rules. Many Black women recklessly give money to their own continual devaluation and are appreciative that they got a chance to laugh while doing so. I stand on principle and I know I stand among few but such as it is in the here and now.

@Hey there. I have developed a "Come out from among them and be ye separate" attitude about the actors and actresses that I support.This means that if Don Imus,Dl Hughley,Kevin hart etc made or starred in a film with an actor or actress I love I still will NOT support it.I'll wait for them to be in another film without those people.If enough people developed that attitude then actors and actresses would steer clear of working with those individuals who have made certain comments or have did bad things to black women.

Consider Mel Gibson,who though insane is also very creative.Many people in Hollywood are unwilling to work with him because of his arrogance and anti-semitism.Others are taking note of those who still involve themselves with him knowing the way he is and the people that work with him WILL experience a backlash.

So far, blame for TLAM unseating the Hunger Games from its box office perch has been laid at the feet of self-hating Black women. However, what if it's a little more complicated than that.

In reviewing TLAM's success, movie critic John Nolte asks a question his peers have ignored:

How many non-Black moviegoers saw it?

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Hollywood/2012/04/24/Think-Like-Man-Watershed

Nolte has a point. Despite what Hollywood and the media believe, people don't just go to movies starring those who look like them. Even on this blog, posters are eagerly looking forward to Avengers, the Dark Knight Rises and Prometheus, which are lacking in Black women characters if the trailers are any hint.

So, it's entirely possible that some White and Hispanic women saw the TLAM ads, thought they were funny, and decided to check out the film.

I'm with you Truth P and I also have a problem with the overall tone of the movie. I am so sick of these simplistic black comedies. I refuse to support them because I want them to stop making them. There I said it. I want more.

There are other ways to support the black actors and actresses you love besides tossing money at sub-par flicks that also star people you would rather not see. So I will today write CBS and let them know I love Person of Interest and particularly Taraji P. Henson. I will likely do the same for Kerri Washington on Scandal (I know some here have already posted the reasons not to support it but I like the fact a black actress is getting to use her dramatic acting chops. Sorry the charater is not an angle. She's a Washington insider what do you expect and my personal taste is heros with a dark side_batman rather than superman, that sort of thing. Sorry off topic but you get my drift.)

Bottom line is that supporting an actor in something you find offensive or barely more than a straight-to-video movie is not really helping their career, you, black women or black entertainment in general. It actually says to the Hollywood powers that we love this stuff and give us more of it. Hollywood has no other intent than to make a buck and you tell them what to make and who to cast with your dollar. So if you like something let your voice be known but if you hate it let them here you on that too. Don't just sit back give up your money and hope THEY will be able to sort it out.

It is incredibly disheartening to see black women finance there own degradation. I agree with Truth P. I adopt a guilt by association attitude when it comes to supporting people who insult, hate and/or try to use me. I don't generally like comedies, rom-coms or projects aimed at "black audiences" TLAM was never a pick for me for these reasons, but had I been interested KH's & SH's involvement and association would have been enough to keep me away. Even a "little bit" of poison is dangerous and can make you sick.

What is it with this"as long as" attitude??? "As long as I have a man"....Julia Hudson. "As long as Steve Harvey, Tyler Perry, and TD Jakes name is involved"....black folks in general. "As long as blacks are on TV "...BBW, RHOA and other stupid reality shows viewers. "As long as the victim for give him for beating or urinating on her"....chris brown and r.kelly stans. "As long as they stay at the top of te music industry"....The knowles stans. "As long as a white person doesnt assualt them"...Rev. press-n-comb in a jar and his drones. Mediocrity is an illness.

April 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLD

LOL @LD. You've summed up the low-having-standards (worse than mediocrity IMO) mentality of a lot of Black people nicely. The bar needs to be raised a LOT.

I've gone farther to support Taraji P. Henson on POI than I have for any character on any tv show in my life. I go to the fan sites, which are notoriously hostile to black female characters, and do positive posts. Every time she's featured prominently in an episode I email CBS to tell them how much I love it, and make it clear that I'm a Tarajii stan, with money in my pocket who is not afraid to use it. I am the 80%. I'm all over their page on FB. I will not see this movie, or anything remotely associated with Hart or Harvey, EVER! I will continue to support quality programming that features black women. I think Scandal is a quality vehicle for Wasington even though I no longer watch it. I can't get with the ADHD pacing of the show. It's the same reason I never watched Grey's. All that jump cutting annoys the hell out of me.

LD expressed my sentiments exactly. (Actually, most of the comments expressed my sentiments.) It's a shame how much the "community" will accept & support, all in the name of standing by your (DBR) (black) (wo)man. Not watching that film.

P.S. That Messence madness... SMH what the hell? They sure know how to keep on winning. :-|
