Here we go with
another black "church"
movie complete with
the preacher, the choir
and the church scenes.
We already know the
stereo typical scenarios
that are going to hap-
pen i.e., husband
(Chestnut) falls out
with wife (Henson).
Her loud mouth, head
shaking, finger point-
buddy (Nash), puts her
two cents in, while his
weekend, pick-up bas-
ketball playing, drink-
ing buddies (Hart,
Sawyer) both have
their advice and
instructions for him to
adhere and follow.
Then you have the
law (Lewis) move in
and take over.
Something tragic hap-
pens and the husband
and wife get religious
again, the preacher
hoops and holla for-
giveness, the choir
sings, people snot, cry,
shout and the hubby
and wifey snot, cry,
hug and beg each oth-
ers forgiveness and
they get back together
with everybody rejoic-
ing and praising. The
bunch will get off on
this movie. Non-
church folks might be
bored with it.

films these days all
must have pretty,
model looking victims.
Not only is Casey
(Yustman) sexy and
going through a haunt-
ing from a demon but
her best friend Romy

as well. The film starts
slow with a bunch of
mystery with unex-
Then a Rabbi enters
the picture and we end
up with an exorcism.
The film has moments
that may seem funny to
some and other
moments that might
actually be scary. For
horror fans, it should

Ask Deanna! Is an advice Column known Jor Its
fearless approach to reality-based subjects!
My boyfriend will not tell me that he loves me. I have been with
him for three years and he always tells me that his presence should
answer the question. He has verbally said he loves me about five
times. We've had our problems with cheating and break-ups but
we're still together. I want to head in the direction of commitment
but I need to address his feelings first. How do I find out his true feelings for me?
Adrienne Columbia, SC
The things your boyfriend isn't saying speak the loudest. You've allowed this behavior in
the relationship and at this point, there's a small chance he'll change. You have rights in this
relationship and deserve to know his feelings and intentions. You need to be direct and tell
him how you feel, what you want and your expectations on love and marriage. Be prepared
if you don't get the answers you seek and you have to decide to stay or keep it.moving
I met a guy that I thought was really interested in me. J helped him get employment at my
company, helped with his bills and paid child support for him. As soon as things started
looking up for him, our relationship changed. Things hit the fan when he got a promotion
and moved into another department. He is now telling me that he's focused on improving
his life instead of dating me. I heard that he's dating someone else in the company. What do I do?
Crying and Miserable On-Line Reader
You set yourself up by confusing help with being used and also giving up your money. You
never should mix business with pleasure because it's a guaranteed recipe for pain. He used
you to get ahead and you can see early on that he's leaving you behind. If you heard that
he's dating someone on'the job, it's probably true. You can't do anything other thin move
on, be glad that you got out early and pray for the new lady who will be his next sucker.
I have a platonic relationship with a male friend of four years but my fiance doesn't like it.
He has begun making hints that I've slept with my friend and accusing me of lying to him.
I've only known my fiance for two years and if I had to choose between the two men, I
would choose my friend. How can I convince my fiance that we're only friends and that
nothing is going on? This is becoming stressful because I love both men and want them in
my life. Help?
Sharon San Antonio. TX
Your future husband is jealous of your relationship with your male friend. It's your respon-
sibility to find balance as you seek to have both relationships. Invite your husband to be
part of the friendship so he can understand and be more open minded. Also be mindful of
your platonic friendship to make sure you're not giving your fiance reasons to complain. If
things don't improve after the air is clear, you fiance has issues you certainly need to

Black History Parrots ~
At some time during the month of February, almost
every city in every state will have some sort of Black
At most of those events, enemies of the Black com-
munity posing as our friends, acting like our benefac-
tors and pretending to care about our culture and our heritage will be invited to
speak to ourpeople.
They will cross arms, hold hands and join in the singing of "We Shall
Overcome" and we will leave the celebrations feeling as happy as a sissy in the
local Boys Club!
Now more than ever, we need a Black History message of truth.' 2009 is not
the time for a modern day Amos and Andy, Buckwheat or Sambo to lead us to
progress and success.
For too many years, the "truth" about out history and our future has been
determined by other folk. We don't know where we came from, we don't know
what we've been through and we damn sure don't know where we need to go and
how we need to get there!
History is in fact the best teacher but oftentimes our history is merely what
non-Blacks desire it to' be.
Let me explain. Jews don't let others explain the Holocaust to them. Cubans
don't let others explain the Mariel boat lift to them. Indians don't let others tell
them who Geronimo and Sitting Bull were and what significance they hand to the
We seem satisfied to only concern ourselves with past and present Negroes
that are acceptable to our white neighbors. We seem to seek out and to pay for
Black History speakers that have been recognized and certified by the devilish
beast. We seem to enjoy listening to speakers that have more in common with
Uncle Tom and Jezebel than they have in common with Dr. Carter G. Woodson,
the father of Black.History. Black History parrots are what we desire to hear most
and the speakers that can educate, motivate and inspire us are the ones we desire
to hear the least.
I'm not going to hate on the brothers and sister Black History speakers that
sold you out to gain a cushy job or government appointment. I just want you to
put a freedom fighter on stage with them.
It's OK to listen to a watered down, whacked up Black History fantasy or
dream speech but you should make sure that our people can also get a message
that discusses our survival, talks about how we can make money and commem-
orates those in our lives that stood up and spoke out for what was right for us.
Others may not, but I'm not scared to talk about Nat Turner, Denmark Vesey
or Gabriel Prosser. I'm not ashamed of Rap Brown, Angela Davis or George
Jackson. I have no problem saying most Biblical figures were Black.
If you are afraid to invite the people in our neighborhoods that can give us the
messages that we need, at least ask those punk Black History Month speakers
some serious questions about whom they are speaking for, us or their modern day
slave masters! (The galley and cover design for Beast Too: Dead Man Writing
has been approved and the book will be released any day now. Contact Lucius to

Hyde enters his fifth season as a minor league manager, including his second in the Southern

Norman has donated a prize item.
After Greg Normans appearance last

the Axemen asked if he would be kind
enough to donate an item that could be

money for a local charity, and he did. An
autographed wide brimmed hat from his

week to be added as one of the major
prizes for the raffle
Event Coordinator Spinner Howland
who is also from Australia was thrilled at
this gift from Norman.
"For a bloke like Greg to donate a
prize for us to use like this is incredible.
He is known globally not only as a golfer
but also for his wines and so many other
successful ventures. He appeals to more
than just the Rugby fan and that will help
us raise more money for Jacks founda-

ference play against Edward Waters College Saturday. St. Thomas' Cesar Chavez led

ble of the season. Chavez was perfect from the free-throw line, 7-7, and from the 3-
point line 1-1.

utive jolting 3-pointers, and Lamar Twitty added a jumper to beat Hampton 76-75
"I told them we've got take care of our home," said coach Eugene Harris. "Our
guys are never going to give up. Our goal is to get to the top of the MEAC, but we've
got to take one game at a time."
Hughes and Joe Ballard each scored 17 points to lead the Rattlers. Brandon Bryant
added 12, including three from behind the arc on a night when the Rattlers were 27
of 61 for 44.3 percent shooting.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Drum Major
"Yes, if you want to say that I was a drum major.
Say that I was a drum major for justice. Say that I was a drum major for peace.
Say that I was a drum major for righteousness. And all of the other shallow things
will not matter. I won't have any money to leave behind. I won't have the fine and
luxurious things in life to leave behind But Ijust want to leave a committed life
behind. And that's all I want to say. If I can help somebody as I pass along, if I
can cheer somebody with a word or song, if I can show somebody he is traveling
wrong, then my living will not be in vain."
Excerpted from "The Drum Major Instinct", a sermon by Rev. Martin Luther
King, Jr., 1968.
Awaking the Sleeping Giant
Jacksonville native Shot Out returns with est album to date

E. Toriono Newkirk is the definition of an enigma. Even
as a child he managed to be puzzling to his classmates,
friends, and family. How could a child know from birth

Mr. Newkirk, known in the music industry as Shot Out;
R was born in Jacksonville, Florida. As a child, Tori (as
referred to by family and friends) traveled with his stepfa-
ther, Wesley Phillips, Sr., of "The East Coast Horn

Shot Out has managed to thrive in the Jacksonville
S music scene for ten years without sacrificing his person-
al beliefs or running his well of talent dry after years of
"I've made it my business to be conscious of where my
position is in the industry, specifically how my position
relates to the others who play a pivotal role in the growth
SS I of Jacksonville's music scene," said Shot Out. Shot Out's
position is very much a God-father position, having been
mentor to producers, managers, promoters, and artists
alike. With the release of what many consider to be his
greatest work to date, "15/10," Shot Out is on course to finally transcend his current regional notoriety and catapult
himself onto the national stage.
On this album, Shot Out held nothing back, collaborating with all the premier artists Jacksonville has to offer includ-
ing Supa Chino, C.E.O., K-9, Meko McNeil, Swordz, Dirt Diggla and Nephew. But Shot Out did not stop there, he
stepped up his features to a national level by having west coast national recording artist Mr. F.A.B., "Making the Band

AI realized with this album that I had a responsibility to my fans and to myself to expand my creative base and delve
into collaborations with an array of artists. I really feel like it made me an even better artist.
This expansion of creativity led to singles like "Spotlight" featuring Mistah F.A.B, "You Don't Wanna See Me" Remix
Featuring L.P.and "She Bad" which is receiving notable spins on radio throughout the south east and on the west
Over his career, Shot Out has also performed with artists such as, the Notorious B.I.G, Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, Yung
Joc, Chingy, Too Short, Lil Kim, Foxy Brown, 69 Boyz, Mad Lion, Wu Tang Clan, Poison Clan, Bone Thugs in
Harmony, Goodie Mob, Out Kast, Craig Mack, Juvenile, Cool Breeze, Urban Mystic, Ying Yang Twins, and D-Roc (of
the Ying Yang Twins) and his group the Musicianz and more.
Street Exec's Entertainment solo recording artist K9 Shaban said, "With Shot being my manager and the C.E.O. of
Street Execs Entertainment, it's easy for everyone to clearly see brah's coming from and his impact to date on the
music scene in Jacksonville and throughout the southern region It has been tremendous. I'm certain with the release
of '15/10,' it would be hard believe that this album won't be Shot Out's coming out party" on a national scale.
Shot Out's album "15/10" is available at Big Al's, Boom Boom Room in Gateway Mall, Underground Station in the
Golfair Flea Market, itunes, Digstation.com, and Cdbaby.com.

more iconic parasol, the dance pioneers rich and unforgettable spirit was felt. Also of note, is the company's
milestone achievement is a 12-point (read flexible) Alvin Ailey Barbie Doll who wears the companies' signa-
