#CrazyRichAsians is headed for a monster opening, and it’s essential to look at why. A full 38% of viewers so far have been Asian—we’re COMING OUT for this film as we never have in cinematic history.

But another 24% of viewers are black or Hispanic: *viewers are 62% nonwhite*.
The book #CrazyRichAsians was based on was a NYT bestseller. When the target for the book is described by folks in publishing, they say “white female, summer read, book club, 35-54.” That audience isn’t who’s filling theaters—yet.

They’re the ones who might take this to $100M.
If you haven’t seen it yet, a small spoiler. After the first 15 minutes of #CrazyRichAsians, you will not see another nonwhite person on screen. Not even in background shots. And the only white people with speaking roles get played like dominoes. In the first five minutes.

There is much buzz going on on social media about this story published by @nytimes: nytimes.com/2018/03/09/us/…. The better title may have been "Black Folks get Woke on #WhiteEvangelical churches and Leave.
So I will take time out of my writing schedule for today to comment on this story. First, much love to the people who shared their stories. In talking with people who found themselves in similar situations, I know it wasn't easy.
But let's be clear: #WhiteEvangelicalism is probably the number one reason people are leaving the church. It's so toxic that even Black people are not immune! It's soul crushing and damaging so much so that you don't want to attend any church.

7 Reasons Scholars Are Teaching GET OUT & Why You Should Too –
I teach a @UCLA class, "The Sunken Place: Racism, Survival & the Black Horror Aesthetic." The linchpin: @JordanPeele’s Get Out. Last quarter, he surprised my class.

MASS INCARCERATION. Jordan Peele told my class: “When I had this image of Chris in this dark hole…I realized I was talking about the prison industrial system.” The system is “abducting black people and throwing them in holes.”

WHITE SUPREMACY. Jordan Peele tweeted that Get Out is a “documentary” because it allegorically documents the history of white supremacy and its effects on blacks.

Je fais un thread sur l'imposture:
Amine EL-KHATMI (@Amk84000),président du Printemps Républicain (@printempsrepub)

Vous n'êtes pas prêts👇
Amine El-khatmi est un opportuniste qui a trahi ses idées et convictions pour quelques minutes de "gloire" médiatique et politique.
Puisque dès qu'on s'adresse à Amine El-khatmion est taxé "d'islamistes"

J'ai décidé de confronté Amine à... lui même. Et c'est fascinant.
