Idris Elba Hosted A Live Q&A Session On Reddit and Yes, It Was Fantastic.
Despite the actor voicing his disappointment at the caliber of roles he was offered after playing Nelson Mandela in the Justin Chadwick-directed biopic last year, Idris Elba seems to have bounced back pretty quickly. Playing an escaped convict and sociopathic killer alongside actress Taraji P. Henson, Elba’s latest movie No Good Deed shot straight to the top of US box offices in its opening weekend.
On Friday, Elba casually hosted a live Q&A session on Reddit where he discussed his most notable acting roles, his experiences as a British actor, his favourite animated movies, being a DJ, director, and Arsenal fan, and of course, the future of Luther. The good news, we just may be getting a film version of DCI Luther and the crew.
But the highlight of the conversation would have to be this exchange:

"There are Negroes who will never fight for freedom.There are Negroes who will seek profit for themselves alone from the struggle. There are even some Negroes who will cooperate with their oppressors. These facts should distress no one.Every minority and every people has its share of opportunists, profiteers, free-loaders and escapists.”-Martin Luther King, Jr.

Basically about new blacks.

"WHITEWASH" a Documentary On The Black Experience In Surfing

Whitewash explores the African-American experience and race in surfing. It touches on some pertinent issues about how the history of surfing was detached from it’s indigenous Hawaiian origins and largely regarded as having it’s founding or “discovery” with European settlers. It also focuses on the issues of segregation and racism at beaches in California and of how the belief that “black people can’t swim” was passed down from generation to generation. 

I’m so glad this documentary exists. There is also great evidence of sea culture in West Africa which after the slave trade forced the people to move inland. Surfing has never been a white-trait. 

Seen it fucking awesome highly recommend
