It'll be episode 109. Encourage everyone you know to watch and, just as important, leave a comment on the website:

More people will see the film in one night than have ever seen it before! Thanks again to a remarkable cast and crew who made it all possible.

About the Movie: Akira’s Hip-Hop Shop ( is a movie about a black woman who falls in love with a Japanese man. Released last year as an indie short, this BlAsian production has been making the rounds nationwide, including the recent Hollywood Black Film Festival and the San Diego Asian Film Festival.

Producer Joseph Doughrity, who got his first break as an assistant to Oscar-nominated director John Singleton (Boyz 2 Men), has drawn enough raves from industry insiders to obtain funding to make the film a feature-length production.

Pres. Obama and the Asian Connection Part 1

Friday, November 20, 2009

I was surfing around and saw someone posted about obamaboxes a etsy store with artworks that portray Pres Obama in some very interesting ways.

I'm not sure how I feel about some of the artwork but I'm loving the Obama Buddha. LOL. It seems to me that Pres. Obama is connected to Asia and the Asian community on so many levels. From his own personal family to his interest in helping to find solutions for civil conflicts.

More important, he's having an impact of their thinking and view points of what a Black American man is like. He's also showing the black community what a black family can look like. It's a wonder more people haven't talked about this side effect.

Maybe because I'm one of few that notice how he's able to walk between the lines of race and culture. Something to think about...oooommmmmm
