  1. If Spielberg decided to do a biopic of my life, I’d be first in line to watch my own boring self. Anyhoo, I expect it to be nothing less than awesome.

  2. Martin Luther was a Negro man who spent jail time and cheated on his wife and as an African American women i feel that he does not deserve a national holiday

  3. Martin Luther King committed alot of skull duggery that has not made the press including his appetite for multi partners and sexual orgies. Apparently the pics have been kept behind closed doors for over 35 years and are too explicit to release. Just another black face used to pacify black people.

  4. Lol @prez, the most annoying twosome at the moment in hollyweird. Though one is more annoying. Lol

  5. Why beating in quotes? Lol. But it should be in quotes. There’s only one fake happy person there jan.
