So I think the powers that be should knock off the anti Semitic digs. We have the Jewish consultant who says to him, when he disagrees with her opinion…”I thought ‘you people’ we’re good at business.” In episode six we’re introduced to a geeking guy with a Jewish last name who’s supposed to be a computer genius. Lucious: (referring to the character’s last name…”Is that Bissowitz or Piiowitz?” At the board meeting regarding an email scandal…Andre to board member…”how ’bout I tell about the member who paid for sex…” Lucious: “You mean Papa Bernstein?” Love the double standard.

You gotta consider the voices heard part of Lee Daniels…have you seen old Loony Tune cartoons from back in the day? Hollywood didn’t even bother to mask it’s bigotry.

Jewish students are getting beaten up on college campuses around the nation because of opposing views on Israel.

Taraji P. Henson Developing Cookie Lyon ‘Empire’ Spinoff With New First-Look Deal Via 20th Century Fox

Looks like more ‘Cookie’ is on the way, if this long bantered about Empire spinoff takes place.  But, news today via Deadline makes the whole thing look more promising! Series star, Taraji P. Henson has signed a new first-look deal with 20th Century Fox where she would star and be one of the EP’s of the new show.

The show would be written by Empire EP Danny Strong with Stacy A. Littlejohn and Yolonda Lawrence, and Empire director Sanaa Hamri to take those reins again behind the camera.

Henson said in a statement on the deal: “I believe that normalizing stories around stigmatizing matters will make them more palatable for audiences to embrace.  Art can change perception and I plan to develop projects that can help further the conversation.  I also aim to help cultivate and establish new young talent and their stories because they are our future and deserve a voice and a platform to be heard. I’m so excited to have 20th, led by the talented Carolyn Cassidy, support me in this new endeavor!”
