Zoe Saldana Discusses Hollywood’s Treatment of Women of Color

Afro-Latina actress Zoe Saldana has never been one to mince words, continuing to speak her mind in a recent interview where she got real about Hollywood’s treatment of women of color.

After years in the industry, Saldana revealed to Porter Edit that she still has a hard time landing auditions, sharing her reasoning with the publication.

“I think it has a lot to do with race,” she said. “‘Color doesn’t sell’ – they hide behind that excuse. But in reality, if you are in a position of leadership, that means that you have the responsibility to guide the narrative and re-shape it and put it on the right track. When you’re not setting that trend, then you are no different than the shackles that are binding you.”

She went on the say things were even worse for her early in her career.

“Every time I read a script, even if it was a period piece, I read it thinking that I was going to go after the lead role,” she said. “It wasn’t until I would come across the introduction of a supporting ethnic role that I realized, ‘Oh.’ I wasn’t even allowed to try to get that main role, because they want to go ‘traditional’ on the part…. It was a very hard pill to swallow.”

Lastly, the Columbiana star revealed that she was once told she “was not traditional American,” taking exception with the ignorant statement. In response, she embraced her heritage even more.

“I will never accept that I am not a traditional anything,” she said. “I come from where I come from, I can’t change that, and you come from where you come from. But if you tell me that where you come from is the only right place, and therefore I don’t fit that traditional mold, let’s just establish, very clearly, that you are the one who’s wrong. Because everything about me and where I come from is just as right.”

Kaiser Permanente Pediatrician-Researcher Discusses Teens and Gun Safety

Youth suicide was three times more common in 2014 than in 1999, and currently more than 1,000 10- to 19-year-old Americans die from suicide by guns every year.

But many of these heartbreaking cases could potentially be prevented by better identifying and treating teenagers with depression and substance abuse problems, and storing guns more safely.

David C. Grossman, MD, MPH

We interviewed David C. Grossman, MD, MPH, a senior investigator at Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute and a pediatrician at Washington Permanente Medical Group, who recently authored an editorial — Reducing Youth Firearm Suicide Risk — in the March issue of Pediatrics about opportunities to reduce youth firearm suicide.

What are we learning about gun safety and teen suicide?

In the editorial, I discuss a study also published in the March issue of Pediatrics by John Scott, PhD, of Florida Atlantic University; Deborah Azrael, PhD, of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health; and Matthew Miller, MD, MPH, ScD, of Northeastern University in Boston. This study, Firearm Storage in Homes with Children with Self-Harm Risk Factors, reports that parents of children and adolescents with high-risk conditions like depression and substance abuse were just as likely to store guns unlocked and loaded as were other families whose children didn’t have these conditions. Our research team had found the same thing in a study with a smaller sample size in 2017.

The Boston team conducted a national survey that is representative of American households with children, teens, or both. The study found that in all families, whether or not the families had youth at risk for self-harm:

  • Guns were present in 4 in 10 of all households
  • Only 1 in 3 families with guns stored them safely (locked and unloaded)

What about families whose teens have depression or substance abuse?

These gun-safety strategies are especially important for families with teenagers who have depression or substance abuse because these teens are at higher risk for suicide.

More research is needed. We must test more ideas and find more practical solutions. But in the meantime, we all can be more aware and take action when appropriate.

What’s the most promising way to prevent teen suicide by gun?

As a pediatrician-researcher, I focus on keeping children and teens safe. When they intentionally harm themselves, these acts tend to be more impulsive compared to adult self-harm. Teens’ urge to die may be fleeting, so deterring them from taking impulsive action with a highly lethal method (like firearms) can save their lives. Health care providers should:

  • Routinely screen all teens for depression, which often goes undiagnosed and is the most important risk factor for suicide.
  • Get them effective treatment and long-term care to treat depression and substance abuse and help them reduce their risk of harming themselves.
  • Use depression screening and treatment as a natural opportunity to raise parents’ awareness of potential risks from unlocked guns at home, especially for teens with depression or substance abuse.
  • Explain to parents that controlling the household environment, such as storing handguns and rifles in lockboxes and safes, tends to be more effective than relying on behavioral controls, such as setting household rules about not handling guns.
  • Engage families in discussion about storing guns safely at home — or discussing whether to remove them.

How can we keep guns safe at home?

Our research team published Gun Storage Practice and Risk of Youth Suicide and Unintentional Firearm Injuries in 2005 in the Based on many research findings including that study, we advise that, if parents or guardians choose to own a gun and keep it in a household where teens and children live or visit, they should:

  • Keep the gun locked and unloaded.
  • Keep the ammunition locked — and stored in a location separate from the gun.

We found each of these storage practices for handguns, rifles and shotguns were associated with much reduced risk of suicide and accidental firearm injuries among children and teens.

Youth who lived in homes where guns were locked and/or unloaded were about 70 percent less likely to commit suicide or self-harm by a gun compared to youth in homes where guns were stored unsafely.  That level of protection is similar to seatbelt use in a car. Homes where the ammunition was locked and/or kept separately from household guns were also less likely to be linked to a gun injury or death by self-harm or accident.

Ne-Yo Discusses the Fine Line Between Tech and Entertainment

Google

In the wake of the backlash against Silicon Valley over the lack of diversity in the tech industry, several tech companies have made an effort to open doors to more people of color. For example, at this year’s American Black Film Festival (ABFF), Google hosted a panel discussion titled Decoding Tech: The Next Generation of STEAM Professionals, which addressed the importance of technology as it pertains to entertainment and diversity as a whole.

Held at the Betsy Hotel in Miami, BLACK ENTERPRISE Editor-in-Chief Derek Dingle kicked off the panel with opening remarks. Then, Valeisha Butterfield-Jones, head of black community engagement at Google, introduced the panelists, which included Ne-Yo, a Grammy award-winning musician and tech investor; Mekka Okereke, an engineering manager at Google; Emmie Louis, a core team member from Black Girls Code; and Marcella Araica, an award-winning mixing engineer. The panel was moderated by Daraiha Greene, Google’s multicultural strategy lead on CS education in media.

During the discussion, panelists addressed the integration of technology with arts and media, and how this combination has impacted their careers. They also spoke about what it means to be a person of color who works in the tech industry. Ne-Yo argued that part of the reason why there weren’t more people of color working in the tech was due to a lack of knowledge regarding the prerequisites for hiring within this industry, as well as a general lack of awareness about what the industry has to offer overall. An investor in the Holberton School, Ne-Yo actively helps facilitate the education of underrepresented minority youth on tech fundamentals.

“Little boys from the hood don’t say, ‘When I grow up, I’m going to be a coder,’” he said during the panel, adding that though these children might be playing video games, they are not making them. “But, I’m trying to change that,” he continued.

Okereke also revealed that he has experienced racial profiling in the tech industry, even while walking around the Google campus where he works. Additionally, Greene stressed the importance of spotlighting people of color in tech, and not just for the sake of modifying the current perception of the tech industry. If these achievements were highlighted on a more consistent basis, then these people could serve as positive role models for minority youth to look up to. This could, in turn, could encourage more children of color to explore tech as a plausible future career path.

In an interview following the discussion, Butterfield-Jones, an organizer of the panel, told BLACK ENTERPRISE why Google decided to sponsor this year’s ABFF, stating that the purpose of the panel was to demonstrate “the range of opportunities for people of color in tech.”

 


 

“We wanted to demystify what it means to work in the tech industry. Whether someone aspires to be a music producer, or an engineer in the television and film industry; there is a space for you to do that in the tech world. If you think about the television and film industry, you guys are the gatekeepers to our community. So, if we want to change the face of tech, we have to consider strong media partnerships. ABFF is the destination to go, if you want to engage with talented filmmakers, television producers, executives, and writers,” Butterfield-Jones said.

“I hope every attendee walked away [from this panel] with a better understanding of how they can work in the tech industry—not just as an employee, but also as an entrepreneur,” she added.

‘Women In Comedy’ Director Heidi Ewing Discusses The ‘Pretty Isn’t Funny’ Stereotype

Women have always been funny, but it wasn’t until recently that society allowed them to look beautiful and make us laugh.

Filmmaker Heidi Ewing, who directed the documentary “MAKERS: Women in Comedy,” dropped by HuffPost Live on Tuesday to discuss her work on the history of funny females, and she spoke with host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani about the long-held concern among women comics that an attractive appearance would make it harder to win over an audience.

Lucky for comedy lovers, that stereotype is quickly dissipating thanks to hilarious women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and many more who aren’t afraid to rock a glamorous gown while they rattle off punchlines.

Watch Ewing discuss the “pretty isn’t funny” stereotype in the video above, and see the full HuffPost Live conversation here.

Matthew Camp Discusses His Go-Go Past, His Fashion-Design Future and the Power of Smell (NSFW PHOTOS)

2014-03-14-MatthewC_3.jpg
Portrait by Daniel Jack Lyons

It’s easy to prejudge Matthew Camp. He’s a beautiful former go-go dancer with an amazing body and a cherubic face. (Read: I kind of assumed he was going to be the kind of guy who skates by on his looks.) When he walked in the door for his interview, I complimented his overcoat. He blushed, shrugged, and said he made it himself. This interaction pretty much set the tone for my afternoon with Camp. Through our conversation I learned that he’s not at all what I’d assumed. He’s kind, independent, hardworking, and gifted, a smart, fascinating guy who lives and works by his own rules. Here’s a snippet of our conversation. Enjoy!

Phillip M. Miner: Most people know you from your dancing career and are probably surprised to find out about the clothing and fragrance design. How did you get into fashion?

Matthew Camp: I’ve been making clothes for such a long time. I started before I was 20. I would make clothes for my sister’s dolls when I was a kid. I took a few classes in a community college and thought, “Wow, this is really easy.” I took a pattern-making class and a sewing class, and that was all I needed. The really interesting thing about making clothing is you learn a process that you can apply to anything. I feel like I can make anything now because I’ve learned the process of making something from scratch.

Miner: Like cologne, for example?

Camp: Exactly! I take natural and synthetic oils and mix them together using different processes to cure them to create the particular scent I want. Not a lot of people do it; it’s kind of a lost art. When I create a scent, I don’t follow many of the rules that people use. There are lots of books about what you’re supposed to do and the scents you’re supposed to use; I don’t really follow that. For me, smell is connected to memory and emotion. If I smell something and it conjures some sort of memory for emotion, I’ll find another scent that brings up the same memory. After I play around with it, I end up with a fragrance that tells a story. My newest fragrance, “8.5,” is made of smells that reminds me of go-go dancing. I used to wear cocoa butter all the time to grease myself up, so that’s in there. Leather and cigarettes and a bunch of other things that reminded me of those nights also went into “8.5.” To me, it smells like going and being out at a big gay bar. I think that’s why it resonates with gay men.

Miner: I have to ask: Does “8.5” mean what we assume it means?

Camp: It is not referring to my genitalia. I’m a happy 7.5. [Laughs.] Clearly the name is meant to be suggestive, but I chose “8.5” because it suggested a few things. The Fellini film is one of my favorite films; it’s raw and sexual, and it reminds of the scent.

Portrait by Daniel Jack Lyons

Miner: Tell me a bit about your dancing.

Camp: I danced forever. I started at the club 20 VIP, which is a strip club with lap dances and everything. I learned so much at that job. I learned how to socially manipulate people into giving me money, which was very useful when I started go-go dancing — and the rest of my career too, I guess. [Laughs.] When I go-go danced, I actually danced. I miss performing. I don’t necessarily miss being in my underwear all the time, but I miss being on a stage. It’s not necessarily the attention I miss; it’s the performing. When I was dancing at Boy Box at G Lounge, I would do these striptease numbers. One night I had a diaper on that was filled with chocolate pudding. I danced around like a baby, took the diaper off, then had a friend lick the pudding out of my ass. They asked me not to do that performance again. I said, “Why not?! This shit is amazing!” [Laughs.] People had the best reactions. Stuff like that was really fun to do.

2014-03-14-MatthewC_2.jpg
Portrait by Daniel Jack Lyons

Miner: I can see why you did so well at go-go dancing. Your body is ridiculous. There are a bunch of nasty things said and written about gay guys who go to the gym frequently. Do you have any comment?

Camp: I can’t speak for an entire group of people, but [going to the gym] keeps me sane. I like to work out because it makes me feel good. My body actually hurts if I go more than four days without working out. I need to go and work out. I’m addicted to the chemicals my body produces when I work out. So I guess I don’t fucking care what people think. [Laughs.] But seriously, it keeps me sane. I’m probably a little agoraphobic; I won’t leave my house for much, usually just work or the gym or grocery shopping. So for me, going to the gym gives me the opportunity to leave my house and do something that feels good. It gives me the opportunity to be social without drinking or stuff like that. I’m trying to streamline as much as I can so it works for me.

Miner: Do you bring the same streamlining philosophy to your work?

Camp: Definitely. I’ve had a few people tell me I should start mass-producing my stuff. I’m not against that, but right now that’s not how I measure success. [Mass production] would unnecessarily complicate my work, because I’d end up trying to fulfill too many people’s desires. The way I work now, I have full control. My designs are mine. I look at my leather pieces as one-of-a-kind pieces of art that I make for one person. My typical client is a collector and the type of person who wears a leather jacket all the time; it’s part of their lifestyle. We collaborate, and the end product is totally unique.

Miner: My job is to make sure we talk about gay stuff at some point. Do you think your need to control your leather pieces comes from being gay?

Camp: I don’t know. When I was reading Stitching a Revolution, I realized gay people used to be total outlaws. They were outsiders and forced to create their own community that included really-fucking-cool cultural phenomena like drag queens. You don’t see that as much now. A lot of gay culture is becoming homogenized and acceptable, which isn’t a good or a bad thing. (I don’t believe in the ideas of “good” or “bad.”) I see both sides. We’re losing that outlaw thing, but it does make it easier for people to come out and also maybe makes [winning] equality easier. I guess I’m trying to say: Fuck it! Just be yourself. Who cares if you’re gay or straight? You don’t need someone else’s approval to do what you want. Do what makes you happy and healthy. It’s about self-improvement.
