Today we as people have embarked on a new era. The times have changed, the seasons have turned and the people have become vain and numb to the sensible way of living. The things we had once cared about have become waste, the decisions we’ve made as a people have created a generation of lost love for souls. Where as before the founding forefathers were brought over to America fought against the slave owners to keep their families together. Where as now people fight against their own families to get away from them by getting a divorce, or legal separation, or even as far as creating baby daddy’s and baby momma’s. How can we as a people want more out of life when life is demanding more out of us and we refuse to give more of what we have to offer back to life. The challenge to overcome every obstacle is not won by fighting the obstacle itself but by overturning its intentions to break us down and keep us from moving in the direction we were attempting to go before the challenge was in our way.

In a recent interview withÂ Vulture, Idris Elba was quoted as saying “The less I talk about being black, the better.”
The quote can be veryÂ misunderstoodÂ and will quite possibly could set off a firestorm in the media. Â The entire statement that goes with the quote reads:Â better.”
â€œIâ€™m so bored of answering that. Are there differences between black actorsâ€™ opportunities and white actorsâ€™ opportunities? Yes, there are. Itâ€™s been said. Iâ€™d rather a young black actor read about success as opposed to how tough it was. I get these roles because I can act and thatâ€™s it. Hopefully thatâ€™s it. The less I talk about being black, the better.â€
Idris Elba will also be playingÂ Nelson MandelaÂ in an upcoming biopic about the African leader.
