@AngelaCampbel  I love background actors. They are so important to the story and deserve attention. Great way for new actors and directors to learn the rhythms of the set. Tell her I said “hi and keep going.”

This has gone viral, but I’m posting anyway ‘cause it makes me smile. And if you haven’t seen it yet, maybe it’ll make you smile. And Phil has jumped to the top of iTunes ‘cause new folks are discovering and old folk are remembering how dope this song is.

Things you say when believe that your preferences, tastes and background are the center of the universe.

This is madness. Are we gonna let this happen? No. 1) Follow @peoplefor . 2) Call (1-844-230-5065) your senators to pass the $25b in emergency Postal Service funding already passed by the House in the COVID relief bill.

I thought I was thorough, but this taught me not to forget the thumbs! Take a look. And blessings to all today. 👋🏾✋🏾👐🏾🙌🏾👍🏾

You deserved your breath, your dignity, your life. Not to die in the street, murdered by a white cop’s knee on your neck. You deserve our tears, our prayers, our rage, our action. We must act - for you - and for all of those were no cameras are present. We must. #GeorgeFloyd

I’m seeing this all across the country in video after video for a week. I wish more mainstream outlets would cover it. They won’t. They don’t. But we know.

A handy household tip for those who need to get zip ties off of your bread, bags of apples, Doritos and other everyday things that one might need to remove zip ties from.

George Stinney Jr. He was fourteen. Three months after being arrested, he was executed on this day in 1944. They used a bible as a booster seat when they sat him in the electric chair. Seventy years later, he was exonerated for the murder of 2 white girls.

This needs to happen on EVERY lie. It's up to the press to do this EVERY time. Go hard, y'all. On EVERY lie.
