Buzz it or Bash it? First and foremost, ain’t nobody here for #violadavis revelation where others have prophesied. #DryerBuzz
Only took seven years to come back here, following #theHelp where Davis played a maid and launched an indictment on black and female audiences for wanting more. “That very mindset, that a lot of African Americans have, is destroying the black artist,” she said once in an interview about her then movie with its Oscar buzz.
But now we’re — her revelation, Hollywood having come no closer to change. #metoo movie having set casting couches a fire. Earning potential still hovering with the lowest of the lows. Reorientation on screen still an issues.
Few willing to follow the success of the recent billion dollar blockbuster which appealed to Black Women #BlackPanther.
We said it then and will say it again. Let’s put it in the words of my be of Viola’s most beloved roles from #Fences... But we held on to you, Viola. We took all our feelings, our wants and needs, our dreams...and we buried them inside you. We planted ourselves inside you and waited to bloom. And it didn't take me us seven years to find out the soil was hard and rocky and it wasn't never gonna bloom.
You just got the buzz from @dryerbuzz — transforming the way we look — at life.
