Client Success Video: Zoi Solar

Centrally located in Austin, Zoi Solar designs, builds, and installs residential solar panels in the greater Texas area as well as other key markets in the United States. They’re a growing company with a lean sales team, which made them a perfect fit for the Modernize Appointments product. Watch the video above or read their story below to hear how their choice to add Modernize Appointments to their salesforce has doubled their sales growth.

What is your role with Zoi Solar?

“My name is Robert Brunson, I’m the Senior Vice President of Zoi Solar, and we bring in technology to help homeowners not only save money on their utility bills, but also to take them to the future.”

What kind of growth have you seen since partnering with Modernize?

“We’ve seen basically a double growth in our sales, so we’re very happy about it. It supplements what we’re doing right now, but eventually we want to move in that direction completely so it takes over our organization as far as a sale channel.”

How have Modernize Appointments helped your business grow?

“We really like the product as a small company because obviously our cash flow is low as a smaller company, but as we grow it gives us the ability to turn-key something out without building out a call center. Salespeople traditionally aren’t good at follow-ups – they’re good at selling. We want to take that out of their hands and simply send them to an appointment to let them do what they’re good at. So, I’m very pleased with the product.”

Revenue aside, what is something you value in your relationship with Modernize?

“Most companies are very transactional, and I’m really excited about our relationship with Modernize because we’re diving deep into each other’s companies and trying to improve each other and raise the bar. That’s what I’m really excited about and how my new relationship is progressing.”

What separates Modernize from other marketing companies?

“A lot of time there are marketing companies that are fly-by-night that aren’t very professional and they’re inconsistent. So, we’re looking for somebody that can consistently show up and be professional in their presence in the market with us.”

What is your advice for companies that are looking to grow with Modernize?

“The keys to being successful with Modernize is simply understanding the process and the metrics.Once you understand those things, you can work to improve the inefficiencies within those elements. What we want to do is figure out what exactly our process is, refine that, and see how we can improve those metrics on both side of the equation.”

Can you describe your relationship with Modernize in one word?

“There are multiple bottom lines in any relationship. Obviously we’re here for business and making money is very very important, but it’s not what we’re focused on. Money is a side effect of being good at what you do and loving what you do. My relationship with Modernize is a success on multiple levels. ”

Fantasia’s Younger Brother ‘Making Leaps And Bounds’ Following Near-Fatal Car Accident [Video]

In the year since Fantasia Barrino’s little brother, Xavier, suffered near-fatal injuries from a horrific car accident, he’s been determined to bounce back and do what many thought would be the impossible… and that’s walk again.

Fanny’s other brother, Ricco Barrino, shared an update about Xavier’s status, saying he’s “making leaps and bounds” with his progress.

Ricco shared the news on Instagram; posting video footage of Xavier slowly walking up and down a mock staircase, with assistance from his nurse, reported ILOSM.

In his caption, Ricco wrote: “The boy @xavierbarrino making leaps and bounds … Please leave comments and cheer this guy on! My #motivation #inspiration #walk #fight #music #riccobarrino #family #littlebrother #hefe would be proud.”

Xavier was severely injured in a motorcycle accident in September 2017. At that time, Fantasia took to Instagram to ask for prayer: “All of you who follow or see this PLEASE PRAY NOW please please please for my baby Bro please he is my Heartbeat PRAY Warriors PRAY.”

She later posted an updated, stating that her bro had 6 surgeries in 7 days and that he would eventually have to learn to walk again.

Six months after Xavier’s accident, Fantasia took to Instagram to post a promising video update about his progress. The clip showed baby bro standing for the first time following the accident, with the help of his mother and physical therapist.

“My Father is Awesome @xavierbarrino I’m so proud of you baby You never gave up the fight I TOLD YALL HE WOULD WALK AGAIN AND IM STANDING ON THAT ‘HE WILL’ Father THANK YOU,” Fantasia wrote in the caption.

September 2018 will mark a year since Xavier’s accident. Wishing him all the best on his road back to a full recovery.

Ex-NBA Player Jason Maxiell Admits To Cheating On His Wife Their Entire Relationship And Sleeping With 341 Women [Video]

If you watched Basketball Wives, you’re familiar with the struggles Brandi and Jason Maxiell have been through in their marriage. Brandi talked about her husband cheating on her on the show but no one knew the extent until the couple aired out all of their dirty laundry with life coach Iyanla Vanzant recently, not even Brandi.

In the scene above, Jason admits to cheating on Brandi throughout their entire 17-year relationship. Brandi was aware of that, but what she didn’t know is that Jason has slept with over 50 different women during their eight year marriage.

Jason has slept with 341 women in his life, but denies that he is a sex addict.

Brandi is understandably shaken up by the revelation of 50 women. She thought that number was closer to eight women and Jason appeared emotionless as his wife held back tears.

Iyanla asked Brandi why she would stay with a man with such reckless disregard for their union. Brandi quickly answers it’s because she said “I do.”

Will Jason and Brandi be able to save their marriage? Should they even try? Let us know in the comments.

5 Most Resilient Women in Video Games

Throughout gaming history, there have been women who display an inner strength — a dignity and a will that won’t back down to adversity and won’t buckle under pressure. They can bounce back from the most painful of events and still keep their heads on straight. This is about the strength of the mind and will of the spirit. Here are five of the most resilient women in gaming.

Jade — Mortal Kombat


Jade in Mortal Kombat(2011)

Since its release in 1992, Mortal Kombat has been entertaining players of all ages. The creators Ed Boon and John Tobias have created characters that connect to the players, like Jade. The best friend of series staple, Kitana, and General of the Edenian Army, Jade is someone who not only values loyalty but practices what she preaches.

When Kitana escaped from Outworld, Jade and Reptile had orders to retrieve her. Jade has to bring her best friend back alive and unharmed. But Reptile’s orders are to kill Kitana on the spot. After learning this, Jade makes the decision to stick by her friend, no matter what. She thwarts Reptile’s attempt on the princess’ life without hesitation. At the time, Jade’s duties as one of Shao Kahn’s soldiers hung over her head. Yet she chose her lifelong friend Kitana over her orders as a mercenary of Shao Kahn.

Kasumi — Dead or Alive


Kasumi in Dead of Alive 5

Dead or Alive has been a staple in the arcade style fighting genre since it first came out in 1996. Its story is about a group of adept fighters who take part in the Dead or Alive tournament to further their goals, like Kasumi, the missing ninja on the run from her former clan.

Kasumi left her village to avenge her brother Hayate, after their uncle, Raidou, beat him and left him comatose and paraplegic. Since Kasumi had left her village against orders, her clan considered her rogue. She now had a target on her back and no home to return to. Both the brother she set off to avenge and her cousin Ayane were to find and kill her.

This saddened Kasumi but she never gave up hope. She didn’t hold a grudge against Hayate and Ayane, even though they attacked her at almost every occasion. She only asked that they allow her back home and for them to not fight her. Kasumi stayed kindhearted even though her world was crashing around her.

Yuffie Kisaragi — Compilation of Final Fantasy VII


Yuffie in Final Fantasy VII Advent Children

Final Fantasy VII is the most successful of the series by Square Enix. It tells the story of a young former SOLDIER, Cloud Strife, and his journey of self-discovery. While on this journey he links up with old friends and new ones, like the eccentric ninja Yuffie Kisaragi.

Even though in the original game Yuffie is an optional character, she’s still a bright spot for her friends during dark times. She first comes off annoying with her energetic nature and her quick verbal jabs. But when the team gets to know her, they see the loving and protective person that she is, like when she rescued Vincent Valentine from the WRO after he was shot in the chest.

As a kid, Yuffie heard about the powerful nation that Wutai was before it went to war with Shinra Inc. She grew up wanting to do something about her homeland’s treatment as a tourist resort. Her solution: become a materia hunter in the hopes that the orbs of mako would help her homeland and her people. Yuffie went headfirst into conflict to help her people, and she stuck to it. She’s a great support both as a friend and as a leader for the people of Wutai.

Aqua — Kingdom Hearts Series


Aqua in Kingdom Hearts 0.2

Kingdom Hearts is the successful series by Tetsuya Nomura. It’s a story that speaks of friendship and inner balance, teaching that darkness and light should coexist and not eclipse one another. A character that exemplifies this is Aqua.

Aqua, along with her friends Ventus and Terra, have what has to be the saddest hand dealt in the series. She watched as both of her friends lost their hearts to the darkness and even had to face them in battle. In the end, she made the ultimate sacrifice to save what’s left of Ventus and Terra’s beings — thus trapping herself in the Realm of Darkness, cursed to wander the desolate place for years.

Many people would buckle under this kind of fate, but Aqua never did. She never regretted her sacrifice or fighting for her friends. But she didn’t accept her fate either. Aqua showed a sense of resilience and will to not give up or give in to despair. In Kingdom Hearts 0.2, we see that she never gave up on finding a way out. It’s that kind of perseverance that shows why she’s such an important figure in the fandom.

Makoto Nijima — Persona 5


Makoto Nijima in Persona 5

Persona 5 is the latest installment in the Shin Megami Tensei Persona series. It tells the story of the protagonist, a young man who’s accused of assault and sent to live in Shibuya with his new guardian, Sojiro, for a years’ time.

One of the people he meets during his stay in Shibuya is Makoto Nijima. She’s an honors student and the class president. But this doesn’t stop her from having her share of insecurities. Makoto’s journey is one of the most relatable as she overcomes her fear of being useless and a burden.

In the beginning, we see she’s told that she has to be useful and an asset or she’s nothing. She gets these hurtful words from her older sister, her principal, and even her future friends. Instead of letting these jeers bring her down, she rises to the occasion. Makoto uses her intellect to establish herself as one of the most valuable assets to the Phantom Thieves. She proves that other people’s assessments of you don’t have to define you — that you define your own value and set your own benchmarks.

5 Ways ‘Pac-Man’ Influenced Modern Video Games

In 1980, an odd little game began appearing in arcades, bars, and shopping centers first in Japan, and later the US. The game featured a maze, colorful ghosts, and what looked like a partially-eaten cheese wheel. Unlike anything that had come before it, it took the world by storm and changed the video game industry forever. Even today, video games owe a debt to Pac-Man for breaking ground in so many ways.

The Playable Character


“Woka woka woka woka.”

Although some early computer games did feature crude examples of a playable character, Pac-Man was the first arcade game to utilize the concept, creating a mascot that would become the face of the game. Pac-Man popularized the concept of the player character to the point that the little yellow circle with a mouth became a star in his own right.

Pac-Man showed game designers the true importance of character and helped make the player character a staple of gaming. From Mario to Lara Croft to Master Chief, the best characters help elevate their games from a simple exercise of skill to an immersive world a player can inhabit by proxy.

Power-ups


The hunters become the hunted.

You’re playing Pac-Man for the first time. Five quarters in and you’ve finally managed to survive more than twenty seconds. You make for a corner, scarfing down a power pellet. Suddenly, the colorful ghosts turn blue and run. You chase after them, gobbling up as many as you can. You’ve discovered a new weapon against the ghosts, and more importantly, the first power-up in gaming history.

From med packs to weapons upgrades to flowers that let you shoot fireballs, hardly a game exists that doesn’t in some way allow you to enhance your natural abilities. Power-ups have become as diverse in gaming as they are numerous, and they all owe their existence to Pac-Man.

Cutscenes

Cutscenes, for better or worse, are a staple of gaming. No matter how people may feel about them, they help build the world of the game, adding context and background to the character and the mission. With complex storytelling, talented voice actors, and captivating visuals, the best cutscenes almost outshine the games themselves.

After Level One is cleared, Pac-Man’s titular hero appears minus the maze with Blinky hot on his heels. They both disappear off-screen. Blinky returns seconds later, now blue and being chased by a giant-sized Pac-Man. This brief animation marks the humble beginnings of a format that today has reached a cinematic level of quality and sophistication.

Stealth Play

Until Pac-Man came along, the primary objective of arcade games had been to shoot at as many enemies as you could or to beat your opponent in a sports simulation. Pac-Man, however, defeated his foes not by attacking, but by avoiding them. Pac-Man popularized the concept of stealth in gaming, that hiding from danger can be just as compelling as running from it.

More sophisticated games such as Metal Gear Solid and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell heavily employ Pac-Man’s conflict avoidance strategy, focusing gameplay on eluding the enemy until the right time to strike. Stealth play has become a staple of modern gaming. Though it may not be the primary focus, dozens of games utilize stealth in one form or another, all beginning with a pixelated circle running from ghosts.

Mass Appeal


Must-haves for the Gen-X middle schooler.

Pac-Man is the most popular arcade game of all time, and the little yellow chomper is the most recognizable icon in all of gaming. Creator Toru Iwatani designed Pac-Man to appeal to an audience beyond the typical hardcore gamer, and that it did. Pac-Man became a global phenomenon, spawning books, a cartoon, a top-ten pop song, and hordes of merchandise from breakfast cereals to roller skates.

The “Pac-Man Fever” of the early 80s eventually broke, but Pac-Man never truly faded from pop consciousness. In addition to its own success, Pac-Man brought gaming itself into the mainstream. The industry ever since has produced games marketed to broader audiences in addition to those targeted specifically to serious gamers. Mass appeal games like The Sims, Dance Dance Revolution, and Candy Crush can thank Pac-Man for proving that anyone can enjoy video games.

One washed cotton jersey tee by Graham Dolphin features the Thriller album cover alongside messages from Jackson’s fans; another design shows a silhouette of his signature dance pose.

Cop Allegedly Says He Has His Gun Pulled ‘Because You’re Not White’ [Video]

Video footage of a Milwaukee traffic stop has gone viral after it appears to show a sheriff’s deputy telling a driver that guns were drawn on him because he was “not white.”

Milwaukee County Sheriff’s deputies reportedly pulled over a driver they said was going 85 mph and blew through a stop sign late Sunday afternoon. TMJ4 reports that acting Milwaukee Sheriff Rick Schmidt said his deputies drew their guns because the 26-year-old driver and his 16-year-old passenger were not following commands.

Schmidt responded Sunday night. During a 9 p.m. news conference, Schmidt said the “recorded racial comment” was not made by a deputy, but came from a person on scene. He said the squad dashcam video corroborates that his deputies did not say the comment, reports Fox 6.

Cardi B Thanks Fans for Their Genuine Love at the 2018 MTV VMAs: ‘That’s Something That You Can’t Buy…B*tch’ [Video]

Cardi B took home a few trophies on Monday night at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards.

While accepting the award for Best New Artist, Cardi gave a deliciously shady speech thanking fans for their genuine love and support — while calling someone a bitch.

To be fair, she could have simply added the ‘bitch’ for emphasis…but we’re not entirely convinced that’s the case here.

“I want to thank all my fans, my family that supported me—all the love,” she said. “All the love that my fans, that my friends, that everybody shows me is genuine. It’s beautiful. And that’s something that God give me that you can’t buy, bitch.”

As for who the someone might be — we have a good guess. However, we’re not ones to stir the pot — we just tell you what’s in it.

Tamar Braxton Shows Ray J’s Sister Brandy Love In New Stunning Video While Battling Vitiligo

Living her life with no regrets, Tamar Braxton is showing fellow R&B diva Brandy some real love on social media where she is looking like a whole meal.

Nicki Minaj’s Mother, Carol Miraj, Opens Up About Her Son Jelani’s Child Rape Conviction [Video]

Nicki Minaj’s mother Carol Maraj is on a mission to bring new light to her son’s child rape case; accusing the district attorney of everything from tainting the jury, to tampering with evidence and falsifying DNA findings.

Last Wednesday (Aug. 8), Mother Maraj sat down with Charles Fisher and The Hip Hop ‘Hood Report for an exclusive, tell-all interview. During the chat, she revealed that an alternate juror said last fall that he would have acquitted Jelani Maraj in the rape case involving his 11-year-old stepdaughter based on a lack of evidence, Hip Hop Wired reported.

The interview was announced earlier in the month and has since aired again on New York’s Public Access TV. It can be viewed via the clip above. Jump to the five-minute mark to hear Carol speak about the case.

As noted by Vibe, Maraj claims jurors discussed the case outside of the court and determined her son’s fate before the trial even began, using Nicki’s absence as a measure of culpability.

“One of the jurors said, ‘I can’t wait to see his face when I bring him in guilty,’ and ‘that bastard this,’ people were talking,” she said, which is reportedly noted in the court’s transcripts.

“But we have the affidavits to prove that they were busy talking about his sister, why didn’t she take the stand, that means that he’s guilty. If his sister didn’t show up that means he was guilty. They totally ignored the evidence that there was no evidence to prove this man guilty. So they went by their own mind, by their own feelings, and they already had him guilty way before the trial ended.”

Maraj believes there were several instances of jury misconduct and that part of the trial was influenced by Wendy Williams’ opinion on the matter. She insists that an expert said that sex allegedly did not happen between her son and the minor and that there are conflicting accounts that should be considered to clear her son’s name.

Meanwhile, it’s been almost a week since Minaj dropped her highly anticipated fourth album “Queen,” but the rapper is still making some adjustments to the project.

Her hit collab with 6ix9ine, FEFE — which has been available for three weeks — has been added as track 20 on the album.

According to Billboard, Queen is currently in a tight race against Travis Scott’s Astroworld for the No. 1 spot on next week’s Billboard 200 albums chart. If Minaj topples him, she will be the first female rap artist with three No. 1 albums.

Barack and Michelle Obama, Other Notables Mourn Aretha Franklin [VIDEO]

President Obama and Michelle Obama sent out a statement on the passing of the “Queen of Soul,” Aretha Franklin:

America has no royalty. But we do have a chance to earn something more enduring. Born in Memphis and raised in Detroit, Aretha Franklin grew up performing gospel songs in her father’s congregation. For more than six decades since, every time she sang, we were all graced with a glimpse of the divine. Through her compositions and unmatched musicianship, Aretha helped define the American experience. In her voice, we could feel our history, all of it and in every shade—our power and our pain, our darkness and our light, our quest for redemption and our hard-won respect. She helped us feel more connected to each other, more hopeful, more human. And sometimes she helped us just forget about everything else and dance.

Aretha may have passed on to a better place, but the gift of her music remains to inspire us all. May the Queen of Soul rest in eternal peace. Michelle and I send our prayers and warmest sympathies to her family and all those moved by her song.

The Queen of Soul died on Thursday at 76. She was the first woman to ever be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2009, she sang ‘My Country, ‘Tis of Thee’ at Barack Obama’s inauguration.

President Obama also took to Twitter in celebration of Franklin:

“Aretha helped define the American experience. In her voice, we could feel our history, all of it and in every shade—our power and our pain, our darkness and our light, our quest for redemption and our hard-won respect. May the Queen of Soul rest in eternal peace.”

The NAACP also paid tribute:

We remember Aretha for the joy and love she brought into our lives and society via her powerful voice,” said NAACP Chairman Leon W. Russell. “No one can discuss the civil rights movement nor music without paying respect to the Queen of Soul. We’ll miss her dearly.”

Aretha Franklin not only revolutionized the sound of music during her career, she contributed to the changing of our society from a segregated one to one where all people, men and women were equal. Her chart-topping hit Respect became the de facto anthem for a nation struggling to break free from the chains of racism, segregation and a staunch patriarchy. Not only did she lend her voice to the struggle, but at times and in substantial ways, donated money to the Civil Rights Movement, supporting the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the NAACP and others.

“What would our struggle or American society be without the music of Aretha?” asked NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson. “Her unmitigated ‘Blackness’ and contributions to art and national progress places her on the Mt. Everest of American icons who changed this society for the better.”

Hillary Clinton praised Franklin on Twitter, “Mourning the loss today of who shared her spirit and talent with the world. She deserves not only our RESPECT but also our lasting gratitude for opening our eyes, ears and hearts. Rest in eternal peace, my friend, Clinton tweeted.

President Donald Trump tweeted, “The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, is dead. She was a great woman, with a wonderful gift from God, her voice. She will be missed!”

Innovator Wins Award for Creating Technology To Help People Raise Bail Money [VIDEO]

At the recent Black Enterprise Entrepreneurs Summit in Charlotte, North Carolina, event sponsor Koch Industries and its Georgia Pacific subsidiary presented the inaugural Principled Entrepreneurship Award to a business innovator who is literally helping thousands gain their freedom. Ben McFarlin, founder, chief technology officer, and CEO of Atlanta–based Help Bond Me Inc. has been using technology to drive justice reform through a platform that allows pretrial detainees to connect with family members, friends, and followers via social media to raise bail money.

A core tenet of the Market-Based Management framework developed by Charles G. Koch, CEO of one of the nation’s largest privately held corporations, Principled Entrepreneurship focuses on companies that create products and services to help people improve their lives, and doing so through the application of “the judgment, responsibility, initiative, economic and critical thinking skills, and sense of urgency necessary to generate the greatest contribution, consistent with their organization’s risk philosophy.” As such, it emphasizes that value creation, innovation, self-determination, and integrity helps drive long-term success.

Bearing all of those qualities, McFarlin is the first subject in our special “Profiles of Principled Entrepreneurship” series.

McFarlin founded the company in 2016 after being moved by the tragic case of Sandra Bland, which drew national attention when she died three days after her incarceration at a Waller County, Texas, jail due, in large part, to her inability to obtain $ 5,000 needed for her release. McFarlin, who holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Southern University A&M College and attended graduate school at the Georgia Institute of Technology developed both the hardware and software for the Help Bond Me system. When he first unveiled the platform, BE designated it as one of our “10 Best Apps From Black Founders.”

raise bail money

To launch his business, he gained guidance from some of the most brilliant minds in the tech space by participating in accelerator programs like Tech Wildcatters in Dallas, NewMe in Miami, and TechSquare Labs in Atlanta. He maintains that the expertise and advice from tech powerhouses such as Angela Benton, Paul Judge, and Rodney Sampson in “those spaces really helped me to grow.”

Visit the helpbond.me website and you’ll witness that expansion, McFarlin and his dedicated team share the company’s current and upcoming services, including:

  • Construction of hardware kiosks and tablets for county jails. Such devices enable pretrial detainees to send hundreds of arrest notifications to friends, family, and followers through social media, text messaging, and e-mail—all which have higher response rates than phone calls.
  • Creation of “a blockchain-based fundraising platform for bail.” Friends and family can obtain bail in cryptocurrency and managed by a smart contract. “All transactions will be recorded to the Ethereum Blockchain to ensure immutability and transparency,” McFarlin told BE at the Entrepreneurs Summit. “We are building a financial system for deposit bail. Processing credit card payments for bail has traditionally been considered high risk. Our funds are guaranteed with zero chargebacks and instantly available to county clerks using the Help Bond Me Ethereum debit card.”
  • Developing “an angel network” tied to community bail funds in major cities nationwide that gain financial contributions from local philanthropists to post bail for destitute pretrial detainees.

Thus far, McFarlin has made inroads into the Cook County, Illinois, jail system as well as explored the jail system in Cobb County, Georgia.

This service is especially vital to African Americans. The 2018 Report To The United Nations on Racial Disparities in the U.S. Criminal Justice System from The Sentencing Project, a justice reform advocacy group, revealed that African Americans were incarcerated in local jails at a rate 3.5 times that of non-Hispanic whites in 2016. Moreover, roughly 70% of pretrial releases require money bond, “an especially high hurdle for low-income defendants, who are disproportionately people of color,” according to that report.

As an African American who knows all too well that a traffic stop can turn into a life-derailing event,  McFarlin says the development of Help Bond Me has been a deeply personal mission for him. “It has taken quite a bit of time, money, and effort to get to this point. We started out with just an idea that could help someone in their time of need. Since then, we have spoken with hundreds of people. That includes the person who was arrested, the jail commander that held him, the judge who set the bail, the family members that raised the bail and the bond agent that posted it,” McFarlin wrote on the Help Bond Me Facebook page. “We’ve traveled the country, gone to jail conferences, presented to sheriffs, spoken with non-profits about bail reform and collaborated with local bail funds. We’ve hit the streets with Help Bond Me, in the malls, flea markets, barber shops, beauty salons, trains, and bus stations. There’s no hype, gimmick or ‘hook’ to what we do. Quite frankly, it can sometimes be an ugly business. But, it’s important work that needs to be done.”

In our video interview, discover how McFarlin transformed his passion for justice reform into a disruptive venture, serving thousands of detainees and their families. He represents a true principled entrepreneur.

Spike Lee: ‘BlacKKKlansman Should Be Shown in the White House’ [Video]

If it was up to legendary filmmaker Spike Lee, BlacKkKlansman, his latest film to date, would be screened in Donald Trump’s executive mansion.

The new film takes place in the 1970s and is based on the real-life experiences of Ron Stallworth, the first African American detective to join the Colorado Springs police force. In addition to facing a number of racial barriers, Stallworth managed to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan as an undercover and befriend former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke through a series of phone conversations. To complete the operation, Stallworth worked with his partner, a Jewish cop played by Adam Driver in the movie, who pretends to be him at KKK meetings.

Like many Spike Lee joints, the overarching theme of BlacKkKlansman underscores the prevalence of racism and the ongoing fight for racial equality. It opens with scenes from Birth of A Nation, a notorious silent picture released in 1915 that glorified the Klan and demonized black men. The controversial drama has been deemed a classic American film and was even screened for then-President Woodrow Wilson along with members of Congress and the Supreme Court.

Birth of a Nation was shown in the White House. Woodrow Wilson saw it and he said it was like ‘writing history with lightning,’” Lee told Black Enterprise. “I think BlacKkKlansman should be shown in the White House—and make sure you put Jeff Sessions in the front row because there are certain things that people are wearing [in the film] that he might be in possession of!” Lee joked, apparently making a reference to the robes worn by Klansmen.

Telling A Part of History

The context of the movie is so surreal that Lee admitted that he had a hard time believing it was true, himself. In fact, when BlacKkKlansman producer Jordan Peele told him about the story, Lee initially thought about Dave Chappelle’s popular black KKK member sketch. Nonetheless, he pounced on the opportunity to create a film about a remarkable piece of American history that few Americans know about.

To tell the story, Lee cast John David Washington, the son of Oscar-winning actor Denzel Washington, for the lead role as Stallworth. “I just knew he could do it. I just offered him the part. He didn’t have to do a read for it. He didn’t have to do a tape [or] audition,” said the movie director. “I know talent when I see it. Many people have got their first roles in my films over the last 30 years,” he said, noting Halle Berry and Rosie Perez.

Washington, who graduated from an HBCU, says that he, too, was surprised when Lee told him about Stallworth’s story. “I went to Morehouse, class of ’06, so I learned a lot about my culture and our history [but] this one kind of slipped through the cracks,” he said.

The 32-year-old actor added that working on the film changed his perspective about police, especially those of color, and he hopes it will change how they are viewed by society as well. “I had no idea what it was like to be an African American cop and I’m hoping people will get the chance to see what it’s like with this film,” said the star of HBO’s Ballers. “We need to start celebrating more men and women that look like us that are police and are doing their job correctly. It’s a thankless job.” When asked if he felt anxious or excited for his father to see the movie, he cooly responded, “I hope he likes it.”

“Wake Up!”

BlacKkKlansman takes several jabs at President Trump and ends with a powerful scene that suggests that race relations in the U.S. are getting worse. It also includes a handful of scenes with the words “wake up,” a signature expression in Lee’s work.

“My most famous phrase for all my films is ‘wake up.’ School Days—that film came out in 1988—ends with Laurence Fishburne saying ‘wake up.’  Do the Right Thing (1989) begins with Samuel L. Jackson saying ‘wake up,’” he proclaimed. The term “woke—that’s that new sh-t. We were saying ‘wake up’ in ’88!”

 

BlacKkKlansman will be released in theaters Aug. 10, 2018.

Kylie Jenner Stars as a Goddess in Boyfriend Travis Scott’s ‘Stop Trying to Be God’ Music Video

Just three days after the release of Astroworld, Travis Scott dropped the visual for “Stop Trying to Be God,” and it features a star-studded cast.

In the video directed by Dave Meyers, Scott’s girlfriend Kylie Jenner makes a cameo covered in gold paint.

The Kylie Cosmetics founder, 20, is then seen again at the end of the video holding a lamb, who mouths “stop trying to be God.”

Musician James Blake, 29, also makes an appearance.

The video is packed with biblical references from Scott, 26, walking among sheep, to baptizing fans that seemingly turn into mini versions of himself, to acting as God in heaven all while the world goes up in flames.

Although not pictured, Kid Cudi, 34, can be heard humming as Stevie Wonder, 68, plays the harmonica.

Hours after dropping the music video, Scott shared a sweet photo of the couple’s 6-month-old daughter Stormi Webster wearing an Astroworld onesie.

“Come home my baby ready to rock and roll. !!!!” Scott captioned the shot, which doesn’t show Stormi’s entire face.

Stormi isn’t the only one showing support for the rapper.

In addition to being Scott’s muse in the music video, Jenner wore an Astroworld t-shirt on the night of its release at Lollapalooza.

“You didn’t have to go this hard baby,” Jenner captioned the post of herself posing in the t-shirt paired with black pants.

“Astroworld just dropped and it’s the craziest ride of my life,” Jenner added.

RELATED ARTICLE: Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott Aren’t Worried About the ‘Kardashian Curse’: ‘We Love Each Other’

On the album, Scott references both Jenner and Stormi.

“Passes to my daughter, I’ma show her what it took/Baby mama cover Forbes/got these other bitches shook,” Scott raps on “Sicko Mode.”

“We just rocked Coachella, I gave her of half of the check/It was good sex, I didn’t mention to the net/Didn’t pass the loud, that was out of respect,” Scott said on “Skeletons,” recounting the early stages of he and Jenner’s romance.

The couple have been dating since April 2017, when they connected at Coachella. They welcomed daughter Stormi on Feb. 1.

Last week, Jenner joined the rapper at Lollapalooza in Chicago to celebrate his album launch. The couple was seen cuddling while an exclusive group of friends and fans listened to the album.

In videos circulating on social media, Jenner can be seen giving Scott a hug as they swayed to the music. Later in the night, the two were also spotted sharing a sweet kiss.

Client Success Video: Sears Home Improvement

Sears Home Services, the nation’s largest repair service provider, is a key constituent of the Sears Holdings brand that has been a mainstay in American homes for more than 100 years. More than seven million homeowners utilize Sears Home Services each year for their HVAC, Windows, Siding, and Roofing installation needs, making them one of the true titans of the home improvement industry.

In 2012, the Fortune 200 company partnered with Modernize to grow their HVAC, Windows, and Roofing revenue profitably by increasing their digital footprint. In a recent interview, Sears Home Services’ Senior Marketing Manager, Janice Barbosa, discussed the impetus to partner with Modernize. Watch the video above or read the interview below!

What is your goal in working with Modernize?

“We’ve established our position in search and email and a variety of places where we are capturing homeowners that are looking for a select Sears. There’s also the opportunity to work with partners like Modernize who also are attracting homeowners – homeowners who may not know who they want to work with. We want to make sure we have the opportunity to talk to those homeowners as well.”

How has your relationship with Modernize evolved?

“The biggest evolution has been in the transparency and data flow – between us and modernize and modernize and us. Also, the quality of insights that we’ve been able to gain. In the early days, our focus was on volume. As we’ve gotten smarter about how that volume performs, we can make decisions to make adjustments that makes that volume better.”

What are some fundamental elements to the relationship?

“Transparency. In a partnership like this, you have to be able to share information and use it to create better performance for both parties. We want to be sure we’re getting the right homeowners that we can satisfy. Obviously, Modernize wants to be able to deliver homeowners and satisfy them as well. If we can both do that by sharing information and learning more about what’s working and what isn’t, then we can both do a good job in that space.”

How important is lead generation to your marketing strategy?

“I think when you look at homeowners and where they go for information, there’s been a real revolution. Some homeowners will pick a brand or a company they want to work with, but many of them just want to be educated. They want to be matched with quality contractors without doing an enormous amount of homework. What we’ve seen is a big growth of homeowners that want to use a partner that’s going to match them with contractors they want to work with. I think for us, it’s understanding the importance of that channel, and making sure that we have relationships so we can talk to those homeowners as well.”

What is your advice for new companies that are looking to grow with Modernize?

“You have to focused on your own brand and your own efforts to have homeowners choose you. You also have to understand homeowner behavior and how it’s changed. Know that many homeowners want to have that matching process occur through a third party, and that you develop those relationships so you’re present with companies like Modernize who are bringing in homeowners through that process.”

Describe your relationship with Modernize in one word.

“Partnership. I think partnership means transparency and a joint objective for success on both sides. It means finding ways to solve problems together. I think in a true partnership, you’re creating scenarios that help you both grow over time.”

The classic, “Who Can I Run To” performed by Tiny, Kandi Burruss, and the Scott divas, set the romantic atmosphere for the little dance.

This video confirms that Tiny has put the Asia’h Epperson cheating drama behind her much like she did after her man was caught with Bernice Burgos.

While some are happy, like Rasheeda Frost, she is making her marriage work; others are fuming that she took the cheater back.

One fan said: “I’m so happy to see T. I is trying to make Tiny smile. I wish he could do right by my girl..they look so cute together. Damm, she has been by his side through everything and still shows the world she is his ride or die wife love and love him dearly. Kudos to these two. Let them live their lives.”

Another commenter stated: “All of you don’t see he’s trying his best to let her go without hurting her….T.I. is letting go! They have that kind of relationship/ love that we will never understand no matter how much we pass judgment on them! Let them live.”

Yassss it’s still @majorgirl Birthday #cancerseason♋ #tiny #xscape #mr&mrsharris

This third person claimed: “I understand ALL the “Let them live” comments. But when you publicly defend your side chick and call for a whole boycott of a restaurant because she and her people had an incident which resulted in them being arrested. I don’t understand why she is always fighting with the side chicks to get back with him? Hell might as well forgive them tooYou deserve to be CANCELED!!!!!!!!!”

A fourth follower had this interesting remark to add: “They got that disrespectful love, and T.I. is swinging one way, Cause from what I see tiny never go with another man and when T.I. plays her she moves out, and they break up. True swingers don’t act like that.”

Many say they have an open marriage and not to worry about the diva and her man.

An Unhinged Roseanne On Valerie Tweet: ‘I Thought The B***h Was White!’ [Video]

(Photo Credit: PR Photos)

It’s almost as if she likes stepping in doo-doo … on purpose! We’re referring to Roseanne Barr who, for some unknown reason, won’t just leave well enough alone regarding the situation she put herself in when she sent out a racist tweet about former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett in May.

As a result of her stupid stunt ABC TV fired Barr from her own show and cancelled it after she tweeted a meme comparing Jarrett to a character from The Planet of the Apes.

Even though Roseanne won’t be on the show, it has been revived as The Conners with TV daughter Sara Gilbert as the star of the new series.

In a new video posted on YouTube on Thursday, an agitated, cigarette smoking Roseanne appeared straight up unhinged as she screamed that she thought Jarrett was a white woman.

According to PEOPLE, the clip is an excerpt from a longer interview.

In the clip, an interviewer presses Roseanne to explain her tweet about Jarrett.

“I’m trying to talk about Iran!” Barr insists. “I’m trying to talk about … Valerie Jarrett wrote the Iran deal! That’s what my tweet was about!”

“I know,” the interviewer replied. “You’ve explained this 300 times.”

Then an agitated Roseanne screams:

“I thought the bitch was white! Goddamnit! I thought the bitch was white! F*ck!”

 

Well, this was a switch up from previous statements from Barr about that that now infamous tweet. Previously, she appeared repentant, claiming that she didn’t know Jarrett is black and that she was on Ambien while tweeting.

Barr also defended herself from accusations of racism.

“I’m not a racist, I never was & I never will be,” she tweeted in May. “One stupid joke in a lifetime of fighting 4 civil rights 4 all minorities, against networks, studios, at the expense of my nervous system/family/wealth will NEVER b taken from me.”

She also said …

“I definitely feel remorse,” she continued. “I’ve lost everything. And I regretted it before I lost everything.”

Barr has since said she “won’t be doing any TV interviews” and will instead be filming and posting videos to her YouTube channel.

We think she needs to just shut up. Period. And stop looking for doo-doo to step in.

Tragic: Husband Finds Wife and Her Mechanic Lover Both Dead from Carbon Monoxide Poisoning After They Had Sex in the Garage [Video]

A New Jersey man came home Monday night to find both his wife and her lover dead in the garage.

The two died of carbon monoxide poisoning while having sex.

via People:

Kahali Johnson said he returned home that night and smelled a strong odor coming from the garage of his apartment, according to WABC. So, he went to investigate, WABC reported.

In the garage, Johnson said he found his wife, Tameka Hargrave, and their mechanic near a running vehicle.

“As I tried to step to open the last garage door, I see the mechanic, he’s laid out,” Johnson told the station. “She’s just a few feet away, she’s laid out. And pretty much I had to call 911 because, at this time, with that level of emissions, I knew that they were gone.”

Sources told KXAS that Hargrave, 39, and the unnamed mechanic, 59, were allegedly having sex in the car when they succumbed to carbon monoxide poisoning. Law enforcement sources reportedly told the station that Hargrave had allegedly been having sex with the mechanic in exchange for his car work.

The Newark Police Department did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Both were pronounced dead at the scene and police said the deaths appeared to be accidental, NJ.com reported. Newark Fire Division evacuated the building, and one person was taken to a local hospital, according to the publication.

As for Johnson, the grieving husband told WABC that he blames the apartment complex.

“Basically she died because of carbon monoxide,” Johnson said. “They do not have adequate alarm systems, because if there had been an alarm in that garage, people would have been alerted to the fact that it was going on.”

Sad.

Selena Gomez’s Mom Shares Video of the Singer as a Sassy 5-Year-Old: ‘Why Do They Grow Up?’

Selena Gomez‘s mother, Mandy Teefey, just shared a major throwback from the “Wolves” singer’s childhood.

Teefey, 42, shared an adorable video of the pop star, 25, from 1997 when the singer was just 5 years old. In the video, Gomez, wearing two pigtails, is seen showing off her sass as she talked to her mother on the phone and complained about homework.

@selenagomez talking to me on the phone when I was at work asking about her day at school,” Teefey wrote in the caption. “My sassy, independent, boss lady, adorable gigantic piece of my heart, first born love.”

“Gracie is exactly like this. Diabolical. XO,” the mother of two continued, referring to her second daughter, 5-year-old Gracie Elliot. “My girls are born leaders. Why do they grow up? Her sweet little eyes and massive eyelashes.”

In the footage, Gomez tells her mother about a homework assignment she had to do again at her teacher’s request.

“My teacher said I gotta do all this stuff again. I gotta do it by myself,” the tot said in the video. “I’m going crazy, you gotta help me over here! You better girl.”

Gomez’s father is Ricardo Joel Gomez. Teefey and Ricardo are divorced and Teffey married Brian Teefey in 2006 and shares Gracie Elliot with him.

In December, a source close to the family told PEOPLE the two had become estranged and not just because of Gomez’s then-reunion with Justin Bieber.

“It’s more complicated than just fighting over a guy,” the source said. “Mandy and Selena have had their ups and downs before. This isn’t the first time.”

While the two weren’t speaking, the insider said Gomez “also wants to give her mom some space.”

“When they fight, they fight hard,” the source said. “But when they love, they also love hard.”

Gomez reunited with Bieber last year and spent New Year’s with the “Sorry” singer in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico after she split with The Weeknd (née Abel Tesfaye) in October.

RELATED VIDEO: Selena Gomez Isn’t Currently Speaking to Mom Mandy Teefey and Wants to ‘Give Her Space’: Source

A source told PEOPLE at the time that the two were “doing great.”

Weeks later, Teefey admitted she was “not happy” about her daughter’s rekindled romance with Bieber during an interview with Gossip Cop.

She also revealed she had not spoken to Bieber in “years,” although she said she knew Gomez was old enough to “make her own choices.”

“Selena can live her life however she wants as long a she is happy, safe and healthy,” Teefey said. “She is 25-years-old and knows what is at stake with her health.”

But it seems mom knows best, as Gomez and Beiber’s relationship did not last. And now, not only has the Baby singer reunited with former-ex Hailey Baldwin, this week he proposed to her.

Tiffany Haddish Gets All Ugly Face Over Tyler Perry During Laugh Factory Routine [Video]

(Photo credit: PR Photos)

According to Anita Bennett’s UrbanHollywood411, funny woman Tiffany Haddish not only brought the house down Saturday night at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles with laughter, but ended up breaking down in tears herself.

During her set at the famous Sunset Strip comedy club, Haddish joked about being thrifty, taking a sabbatical from sex, receiving a car from Tyler Perry and being gifted the wardrobe from her upcoming film, Night School, with Kevin Hart.

Haddish warned fans they’ll see the outfits over and over, because she believes in recycling.

She also joked about her role in Perry’s upcoming comedy, Nobody’s Fool. She said the director’s rapid-fire production method caught her off guard.

“We shot that whole movie in ten days. I don’t know if it’s gone be any good,” she said to laughter.

“I don’t know if this sh–’s gone be funny. I don’t know what the continuity is gonna look like,” she joked. “I don’t know if in one scene, I’m gonna have three hairdos. I don’t know.”

Then someone in the audience yelled, “Tell us about the car!”
