Friday, Love, and Memes: 'Black Panther' Breaks Barriers and Records In lts Opening Weekend @balleralert 'Black Panther' Breaks Barriers and Records In Its Opening Weekend - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ RyanCoogler’s 'Black Panther' is setting a tone for Marvel films, creating conversations while breaking several barriers at the same damn time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In just the first three-to-four-days of its release, the film earned a whopping $235 million, making it the fifth highest-earning of any film and the highest debut ever for a February film. And let’s get into 31-year-old Oakland native Coogler, who made history for now having the highest-grossing film ever by a black director. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ BlackPanther now holds the biggest solo superhero launch of all-time! It also takes the crown for the biggest non-sequel opening weekend, the biggest Friday through Sunday opening weekend for a long holiday debut, the biggest long holiday opening weekend and the biggest pre-summer opening weekend (there’s actually more). The film has already gotten esteemed praise from critics on Rotten Tomatoes who gave the film a 97 percent. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We don’t really have to say much, the movie is a one-of-kind BlackMagic masterpiece. We fell in love with our righteous all-Black cast which starred ChadwickBoseman, LupitaNyongo, MichaelBJordan, AngelaBassett, DanaiGurira, DanielKaluuya, ForestWhitaker, SterlingKBrown, FlorenceKaumba, WinstonDuke and now beloved breakout star LetitiaWright. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 'Black Panther' changed the Marvel superhero game and as you can see by the numbers and audience involvement, we’re loving every minute of it.

Beautiful, Children, and Memes: My Black Will Forever Be Beautiful @balleralert My Black Will Forever Be Beautiful - blogged by @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We don’t need anyone to tell us how beautiful, talented, sophisticated, and talented we are. Many of us have known how unique we are from the beginning. But to see everyone come together for something as positive as 'Black Panther' is simply amazing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not only are we dressing for the cause but it is becoming an everyday statement with rocking our natural textures, African prints, and just appreciating our Melanin more. Many may say that we are overdoing it but there is no such thing. We just haven’t been doing it enough. Understand that we are simply appreciating our culture for what it is and not giving a damn about what any has to say about it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am unsure why people are surprised at how black people come together. We can come together for a great cause and support our own. Understand that this is only the beginning for our culture. No need to bring each other down. We are here to uplift and bring each other together. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Remember, our black will forever be beautiful. Don’t allow anyone to tell you different. Continue to educate our children every moment we get, so that it doesn’t seem like a fad to others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This may be new to some, but baby our melanin been popping!

Guns, Kendrick Lamar, and Memes: Kendrick Lamar Said to Be Banning the Use of Cell Phones and Digital Cameras From His Concerts @balleralert DAMN KENDRICK LAMAR RIAA CERTIFIED DOUBLE PLATINUM Kendrick Lamar Said to Be Banning the Use of Cell Phones and Digital Cameras From His Concerts - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you’re planning on attending a KendrickLamar concert, you might want to read the rules first. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to The Guardian, the Grammy award-winning lyricist will now be prohibiting the use of cell phones at his live performances. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Reportedly, the new policy was established in order to “protect Kendrick’s valuable brand and ensure that the appetite for tickets remains keen.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Additionally, it is also said that professional photography won’t be allowed either. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, this stipulation doesn’t necessarily come as a surprise. Cell phone and digital camera restrictions at concerts aren’t unusual. This actually happens quite often. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Alicia Keys, Guns N’ Roses, and the late Prince are all known for banning mobile devices from their shows. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Of course, though, if you spend your hard-earned money on a ticket, naturally, you’re going to want to capture footage for the sake of keeping good memories. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But, by putting the ban on filming-snapping photos, artists are hoping to keep the audience members more engaged and to provide potential attendees with an even better, enjoyable, and exclusive experience. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Currently, Kendrick is on the European leg of his DAMN tour, which kicked off on February 7th in Dublin.
