  1. Well, she was ungrateful and bitter with a chip on the shoulder style. She implied that the Academy finally made their choice about the performance… rather than politics. Sorry, ALL those women had great performances. And she did this as she was awarded an Oscar? Where was the gracious ladylike gratitude for the accolades?

  2. Well said. By stating that by choosing her, the Academy chose performance over politics, she essentially declared that none of the other nominees gave worthy performances. What an ungracious, bitter, and angry acceptance speech. Seems she was barely acting and simply being herself in her Precious role. Let’s hope that’s the last we see of her in a motion picture or on the red carpet. Yuck.

    • Frankly,I did not know what she was referring too!…she was definitely bitter…

    • i think you are correct… she was playing herself!

    • List of African American Oscar winners; don think Mon’ique is the same caliber….. sorry, but give it to a sister for running the game and getting the hook up…..

  3. In my opinion, she not only sounded bitter, rude and unintelligent; she also sounded very racist. Thanking her BET “Family”, and her Tyler Perry “Family”. And every other nominee was a caucasian, so saying that the politics were ignored to give her this award seemed racist to me. I hope she never wins another award. I would like to never see her on the red carpet again also. She didn’t deserve that. Not one bit. Ungreatful.

  4. Do you know what racist is? Mo’nique was not rude or racist she just was being honest. Thanking her BET family and Tyler Perry was just like thanking her family. Those people stood behind her every move. She was very grateful for winning her Oscar and she can when as how ever many God plans for her to win. Also normall politics would play over performance. But in this case it wasn’t a need to because she out acted everyone that was in the category with her! I am very proud of her and a big fan!

    • She did not out-act Meryl Streep. No one in the past twenty years has done so, they have just had roles that were more dramatic or meaty. If you seriously believe Monique is an Academy Award Winning Caliber actress you need to reassess your credentials as even a casual moviegoer

  5. Wow! I am not a Mo’Nique fan but these posts are a bit harsh and uniformed. Does everything have to be about race? Did you miss the part of the speech where she thanked Hattie McDaniel (first AA to win an Oscar). Also, “the politics” she was referring to is connected to reporters and publicist being upset because she did not want to do extra interviews to campaign for the Oscars. It had nothing to do with the other people nominated. She thanked her BET Family (her show comes on that channel) and her Precious Family (the other people in the movie). She thanked Tyler Perry and Oprah because they were the producers; everyone thanks their producers. It had nothing to do with race. She may not have been groveling, but she was thankful.

    • Well said, wow someone with some common sense.
      People always think that AA women are always so angry, uneducated(ghetto), and rude.
      Let us not forget that Mo’nique is also a plus size AA woman, I will not even go there…….. Just thank you for saying something that made sense.

    • this is the best post i read all night!

  6. SORRY! Mo’ique is not an actress. And the last Oscars were given to BLACKS in “BAD” or “Nasty” Negro rolls. Denzel, playing a BAD cop and Hallie playing a whore. So now Mon’ique gets it for playing a BAD MOTHER. I guess most people don’t get it yet. If you are black and want an Oscar, you still have to play’ step n fesh’ rolls. Now there have been a couple like Denzel in Glory… but still. SORRY, dont like mo’ique as a talk show host, or a comedian nor an Oscar winning actress….. someone help me please.

    • Help yourself by being gracious enough to put your feelings aside, and congratulate her for the win…..
      I could go down the list on years and years of people who I did not think deserved their award, but my vote was not cast for them to win, and it really does not matter.

  7. Many in the black community, including scholar/author Ismael Reed are calling “Precious” a racist movie full of black stereotypes.

    I thought so myself when I saw the clip they played last night at the Oscars showing the character Precious stealing a bucket of Fried Chicken from a fast food place.

    btw: Ismael Reed’s op ed. pieces on “Precious” from the New York Times and Counter Punch are currently BANNED from being posted to Facebook as “content reported as offensive”. wth?! Needless to say -they are a very interesting read.

  8. Mo’Nique is an ungracious and bitter human being. She was fortunate to have been on that stage at all and I’m afraid she sealed her fate to never be standing there again. She made a fool of herself and all those who stood beside her and were a part of the film.

  9. Nancy, you are correct, MoNique is in NO comparison with those other actors. Not even close. She’s on a tv sitcom! No other Oscar winner is makin’ their way with some cheesy sitcom. And her BET “family”, and giving them “props”, is racist! BET is racist. HELLO! Where’s my Caucasian Entertainment Television? Or how about my White History Month? Yeah, you’re right, it’s not about race for them at all….right?

    • Gracie, you sound bitter and angry. You also sound white and defensive. People have a right to thank whoever they want for whatever reason. Just as you have a right to sound threatened by African American achievement.

    • Get a life all ready…….White History Month!!!!
      It is white history 365/24/7. We can’t have a month to educate people on what happened in this country to one race of people by another race of people????
      No, it is not about race, it is about human rights, and equality.

    • All TV IS “WHITE TV”, even “BET” is owned by “White MTV” or Viacom. It’s funny how you “caucas mountain people” think you are so intelligent…”White History Month”??? What a complete “IDIOT”, no matter what pig color you are!!!

  10. If it was about the “performance,” she would NOT have won. She dissed the other actresses when she said that. Get over yourself Monique! And did you REALLY need assistance while walking off the stage?

  11. […] Samuel Jackson Gives Mo’Nique’s Oscar Acceptance Speech The Salty ‘Side-Eye&#8217… After having to endure weeks of tacky reports about Mo’Nique’s ungodly  unconventional open marriage, and […] […]

  12. What kind of an acceptance speech was that Monique??
    For god’s sake, are you malevolent or are you simply ignorant.
    I say just put her and George Clooney in a meat grinder and make sausage!
    Did we remove the word “humble” from the dictionary?

  13. I’m not into the Oscars or any entertainment politics, but just happened to be watching it with family. To me she sounded very bitter, ungrateful, and to top it all off, racist. She is a great actress but she blew it for me. Class is Morgan Freeman, Denzel Washington, etc. What my BET family and all. Some stupid comment also made by I forgot who when they announced for the first time someone black may win a Oscar for something. If it was refereed to for the first time a male or female I would understand but color? Not good…

  14. Oh forgot to mention. You won an Oscar not discover another planet. Being humble only adds to your accomplishment not take away from it.

  15. We as African-Americans have every right to free speech and to celebrate our achievements on a public forum just as much as anyone else. I love MoNique & hated her in Prescious which means she acted the hell out of Mary Jones!
    Her show is on BET, which is owned by VIACOM {a white corporate media.} Prescious, is the movie of course she is to thank them. Tyler Perry & Oprah PRODUCED the movie. Her husband? Realy everyone thanks their spouse.
    And it is politics? How else can you explain the lack of minority Oscar winners? And I dont celebrate Black history in February, I celebrate EVERYDAY!

  18. CONGRATULATIONS MO’NIQUE

    CONGRATULATIONS TO THE CAST OF PRESCIOUS!!

    THANK YOU TO THE ACADEMY FOR IT BEING ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE & NOT THE POLITICS!!!

    CONGRATULATIONS MO’NIQUE

    CONGRATULATIONS MO’NIQUE

  19. MO YO CAN BITTER, ARROGANT, RUDE, OBNOXIOUS, ETC…. BUT GUESS WHAT YOU CANBE ALL THAT WITH YOUR ACADEMY AWARD. THEY WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND OUR STRUGGLE OF WORKING TWICE AS HARD & STILL BE CONSIDERED NOT GOOD ENOUGH! WE LOVE YOU MONIQUE.

    • African Queen, African Americans like yourself ruin it for the young African Americans by embedding that worthless message that blacks have to work twice as hard to get somewhere. Really…? I have some black friends which are very successful and have worked hard just because anyone has to work hard to get somewhere. Its not about I’m this race so I have to work twice as hard as a white person. For sure African Americans have been through lots of struggles but so have lots of other races, that’s what makes any person stronger. Look at Armenians for example, most of them killed off by the Turks and lots disliked in the city of Glendale…but they don’t give a rats a** about who thinks what of them, they just own. So do many African Americans…As a matter a fact some races copy the positive, cool, happy, strong attitude that most African Americans have so I don’t see a problem why we should make it a oh hale great ceasar of BET and stuff. All some of us are saying is we don’t see any color here. Lets not go off tangent during accepting of an award for your accomplishment and bring out an issue about race which should of never existed anyway.

      • The issue of race should of never existed, but it does…..history does not let us forget it.

      • Al…Are you BLACK …NO! Stop talking about your Black friends, that’s how all you racist try to hide your true feelings. YOU have never been BLACK, you will never be BLACK!!! Your words mean absolutely nothing…zero. And the sight of a BLACK QUEEN without the white savior, standing up and thanking her people made you SICK. And if you saw them same Black friends you referred to crossing a street…at night, you would lock your doors and call the police to report suspicious characters in the area. when it comes to BLACK, none of your White advice is necessary!!!

  20. Yeah, I found the racist and it was not Monique either, it is the shady people posting on these boards. I can’t believe Monique was expectED to fall to her kneeS in appreciation for her oscar. She was just as thankful as the rest of the entitled winners. WHY WAS SHE EXPECTED TO BE SO on bended knee!!?? That is what I want to know. CONGRATS MONIQUE!!!!!!!!!!!

    I DON’T SEE ANYONE FUSSING ABOUT SANDRA BULLOCK AND THE FACT THAT SHE DIDN’T FALL TO HER KNEES!!! NOTHING WRONG WITH BEING PROUD AND CONFIDENT. TALK ABOUT HER HAIRY LEGS IF YOU WANT SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT BUT HER SPEECH WAS NOT A PROBLEM. GET OVER IT!

  21. wow….gracie ……relax……why are you so uptight?..really…white history month…youre sounding like any minute now you would start campaigning to live in a caucasion only country..you NEED to slow down…..pathetic…anywys im happy for mo’ even though i was kinda taken aback by the line about politics versus performance……samuel jackson needs to stop coming in the same stupid movies over and over again if he wants to win something..anything…

  22. Wow you people are funny…escpecially the white history month comment by the not so gracious GRACIE. Really Gracie? WHM? When are we not reminded of White history? Caucasian Entertainment TV? That would be redundant….come on you were joking right? Do your BLACK or minority co-workers know how you feel about them and their BET or BHM? Oh and thanks NACY for sharing your not so robust list of BLACKS who were so fortunate to win an Oscar. I love the way RACE comes up in every conversation regarding BLACKS. But you’re all right Monique should have been grateful and not thanked so many BLACK people…because that’s just racist!!

  23. I would Just like to state that some of you sound very ignorant to me right now. You guys are commenting on things that she desided to say in her speech when you dont know why or even the main reason behind them! And jay you are so right how dare a black woman thank the great black influences in her life …how racist of her WOW!! and agreed for mrs. gracie are you serious??? African Americans get 28 days out of a year….. “white history” happens 365 days out of the year mam! CONGRATS MONIQUE!!!!!!!!!! i think you are a great actress, and no u should not be “thankful they let you on their stage” we should be thankful to watch the great work that got u there!

  24. and about Mo’Nique’s “ungodly unconventional open marriage, and her grossly hairy legs” … thats jst an openly stupid statement! she stated that she and her husband would not divorce over having sex outside the relationship, it’s not like she said they are a pair of swingers that go out in search of other sexual partners….. and plus she said that would not be a breakin issue from them, never did she say that they have had sex outside the marriage! and LOTS of ladies do not shave their legs….. and no she did not say her husband has a fetish for them, she said that he didn’t mind that she preferred not to shave them…

    • Good points given.
      I do gotta say about her marriage, that is her business, but if you gonna allow all that in your marriage, then why even be married?? As far as hairy legs, mine have not been shaved in about two to three years, and I will get to it when I wanna…..I guess that is not just a priority on my day to day year to year list…..(note to self, shave legs eventually)…

    • …do most women shave under their arms?…
      I guess it all depends on if you are trying to attract a man,or significant other,…look well groomed , camera ready and finished…
      or are you going for the opposite effect.
      I am sorry….as a man I have to shave my face ,nose and ears to look well groomed, and go through whatever it takes to be well groomed….so,I just think that these lack of shaving habits are less than what we need them to be in our society…(I am just trying to word this nicely)…
      Please shave or pay someone to do it for you!!!Mo’Nique knows better, and has the money to set a healthier example, not make gross,unhealthy habits okay..they are not!..
      but..uhmmm…I guess that is her whole schtick!

  25. You see, it is the fact the there is a black history month that still seperates African Americans. They get special grants, special treatment, and a special month. They say they want to be treated equally, when they are the one’s holding themselves back. They are just as American as everyone else, yet they celebrate themselves specifically. Yes, I was joking about the “Caucasian History Month” statement. I’m tired of hearing the, “Poor me, I have to work harder, I have to push harder. I come from a bad home, gimme gimme gimme”. Guess what, I come from a bad home, probably worse than most African Americans, I turned out just find, and I’m making it on my own because of me. Not a hand out, and not because of my race. By the way, my brother-in-law is black. He’s damn classy and well eduacated. He wanted the best for himself and in turn his family. He agrees with me on many levels about this topic. He doesn’t want to be seperated from the rest of his community for any reason. Black, white, yellow, pink, brown; it doesn’t matter. That is what you don’t get. You want to be equal, act like it. And “African Queen”, you’re the type of ignorance that your race looks down upon, FYI. Smarten up. Back to the subject at hand. MoNique is a rude individual. It’s unfortunate that she had to demean herself like that. She should have written a speach. Denzel, Morgan Freeman, Halle Berry; you never would have heard some ungracious B.S. like that come out of their mouths. Why? They have class first of all, and they don’t want to segregate themselves or their race. MoNique should take Public Speaking 101.

    • Gracie Gracie Gracie…you are really showing us your true colors. Cats out the bag missy..or is it the hat? Truth is, we’d have to start a whole new blog to finish this conversation. I mean you’ve gone way off the subject…way off. But I must say, your words are quite intriguing. You almost had me fooled in believing you were educated, but in the end you’ve only proven to be as bitter as the way you and your friends up top describe Monique. No Gracie, what seperates Blacks from other people is not the one month out of the year when our kids learn a LITTLE about black history in school. You’re just gonna have to find another way to express your discontent for Blacks and their irrelevant history. Take care Gracie.

    • The BS never ends…….consulting with black men who date white women as an authority r-ight, I still suggest you get a life, even if it is all caucasian, you do you.

    • We African-Americans get special grants!?@!…nobody ever told me that,cause I have not seen it.
      What we do get that is true is ‘special treatment” …by the cops!..and if being subjugated to a second class citizen and a de facto double standard is special treatment,… then there you have it.
      The rest of what you said is just some ignorance coming from someone that does not know what you are talking about…so you just attack it.
      We celebrate a lot of cultures here in America by designating days,and dedicating months to them, and that is all.
      The KKKKlan definitely looks at any cultural celebration outside of WHITE POwer culture, their own by the way…to be disgusting.
      You sound sympathetic to that mentality,so you should check them out.
      Here…we celebrate any and all cultures, however they and us…seem fit!

  26. Jay, From one Jay to another – you’re all wrong. The problem with Mo’s speech was that the FIRST thing she said was that for ONCE the academy made its decision on talent/performance rather than politics. Well that is offensive on MANY levels. 1) It accuses all former winners of winning only b/c of politics and not talent. 2) It blatantly demeans her competition – i.e., if anyone else but her won, it would HAVE to be b/c of politics rather than performance, i.e., the other performers didn’t deserve the award, 3) MO and only Mo deserved it, she was the clearly best, and 4) the “politics” she was talking about seemed to be about race – i.e., the oscars are a racist institution and finally got it right.

    Hence, she demonstrated herself to be, right at the outset, that she was incredibly arrogant and conceided (instead of humble) about her own performance, demeaning (to the other actresses for NO REASON) and insulting to the institution who gave her the award (if you’re NOT going to believe in that institution, then remove yourself from consideration). Lastly, most believe she meant “race” by politics – I certainly do. I’ve seen her show on manners and personally seen her be flat out racist on numerous ocassions so it was no surprise to me.

    I had NO PROBLEM WHATSOEVER with her thanking BET, Oprah, or any other person or group whe wanted to that she felt supported her, or commenting about her husband – all completely fine.

    But the politics quote demonstrated her true colors – that she demonstrates time and time again elsewhere.

    And, for those who believe this is about free speech, please go back to civics class and the 5th grade. She CAN say whatever she wants, BUT people can blast her for it and that is what is happening.

    As to the thought that blacks have to work twice as hard to get ahead – that is SUCH an antiquated notion it is ludicrous. It certainly happens in a few instances, but BY FAR, the greater reality is that many blacks have taken advantage of double standards and programs that benefit them in numerous areas of society. The list is TOO LONG to go into.

    The most disturbing aspect of the inequality today is the outright violence against whites that occurs every day at the hands of blacks and goes unreported b/c of PC. Ever hear of the Buffalo 35?? I guarantee not, but I’m sure you’re all aware of the Jenna 6. Everyone needs to stop treating people differently for ANY reasona dn in ANY way based on race. African Queen is a prime example of a hater and someone who sees herself as black, blakc, black, and not as a person first and foremost.

    • You sound like you do not know anything about being black…like I do not know what it is to be white.
      That said…you should never comment on a topic that you know nothing about, like this comment here.

      You sound like a bigot. Black people do not get any special money for being black???are you over there smoking crystal meth???? step away fro the trailer,put down the speed,and join us all in our multicultural society!!!...what we do get is a double standard of mistreatment by you white power majority types, that want to run away from
      your terrible history and heinous social crimes to humanity that your ancestors.or people like you did to my people…
      and those crimes have never been avenged.

      This topic is about an actress winning an Academy Award, and the KKKlan has hijacked it, and twisted it into a race thing.
      Ontopic folks..Sam Jackson side eyeing Mo”Nique!!! thats all…black on black…no racist intent at all…unless of course you are RACIST!!!

    • Jayson, the politics bit was only in there because of the numerous people telling her she would have to play politics to be a serious contender for the Academy Award (as Vonne commented earlier). Every interview she’s given since the nomination has talked about her refusal to do the Oscar campaign because she wanted the win to be based on the role and talent, not that she played some game. She even dedicated a topic on it on her talk show. It was a cheeky comment, but it wasn’t towards the Academy or the past winners or even the other ladies nominated, but the press and publicists and “friends” who tried to get her to play the game.
      Second, you are correct. I don’t know anything about the Buffalo 35, as their PR wasn’t as great as the Jena 6. But what do you know about Jena 6? For you to compare Black on white crime to the Jena 6 shows you must not know the true issue at had or the entire case beyond a soundbyte or two. I agree with you, no one should be treated any differently because of their race. But that is an easy thing to say and not an easy thing to do. We are not a post-race country because we see people by their differences first, and unfortunately for blacks, skin color is the first thing to be noticed by everyone. It is sad that African Queen sees herself as a black person and not as a “person first and foremost.” But maybe that is because that’s all anyone else has ever seen her as first, so she grows up wearing that blackness as a badge of pride instead of shame as some intended for her to. I personally see myself as a child of God, a human made in HIS likeness and image first, then as a black American, then a geek/nerd, then as a women. I wear all those identities as badges of PRIDE and LOVE and UNIQUENESS, and even as challenges, but I have to recognize all of them, or else a part of me would be lost. My race doesn’t define me, but it is part of my make-up and has shaped my experiences and my attitude towards life. Your comments prove your whiteness has done the same…

  27. Some of remarks I see on this page are nothing more than just opinions. Fundamental facts are lacking from many of them. Since when did it matter how many black or white people an Academy Award winner thanks in their acceptance speech? Are Academy Award speeches usually one size fits all? Monique is only the fourth AA female to win an Oscar in 82 years. There are many individuals in this world that have open marriages, baby carriages, hairy legs, and confidence. Congratulations to Monique for blending in with the rest of the country while maintaining her idividualism.

    Classie

  28. People lets all just say congrats and move on she won. If you did not like her acceptance speech or her then don’t support her. The power of the dollar sends a great message and she got alot of them so she is doing something right. It is in the history books now lets us get on with our lives (white,Black or indifferent)!

  29. I can not help but to respond to the level of ignorance, uneducated, and ungodly comments that keeps finding it way of wanting to be heard year after year that comes out of the mouths of human beings. It is unfortunate that many of you do not truly understand many things the world has spun (and neither do I) and there always seems to be an attack against each other who seeks to think they are getting a point across. Thoughts are things and we need to be very careful about the thoughts harbored that eventually find it way to explode and the ill feelings felt in our hearts. Karma comes back in many folds… Be careful about how you want to expense the energy that is deeply rooted in souls. Just because you may have an opinion about a group of people based on race, creed or nationality doesn’t give anyone authority. Negativity on every level never goes unpunished!

    Society as a whole has/is already reaping what it sowed from many centuries and years of human oppression and the thoughts of what has been shared about the many groups of people just shows lack of knowledge. We all just need to realize that. Stop with the bitterness and looking for reasons to give a human voice on levels of spoken/typed ignorance. No one were given options on what nationality, race or creed he or she wanted to be before conception, so how dare anyone think that one race of people is better than the other or has purpose over another group of people.

    Proletariats, upper crust, those well off may think that having a better head start or perhaps being of a superior class makes them better but no one knows what a person is really feeling or what those human experiences may be like. You may not want to trade your life in replacement of theirs. I live to be at peace and awake each day on how I can make my world better. Sure I know that the uneven scale of negativity exist, I just don’t want to be part of it. The point – No one is better than anyone! And God knows this!

    Just remember the price for saying or feeling anything negative, it never goes unpunished.

    • First off don’t boast your English so some people here can understand you. This is not college upper division English. Point blank she accepted the award that she deserved the wrong way. Me watching it almost crawled underneath the table from embarrassment for her.

  30. Thanks for the Compliment! And yes I am a college graduate and a student of LIFE. And I will always boast my common sense thoughts and intelligence wherever and whenever.

    Finally her (Mo’Nique) truth is being told. Be surprised that many folks feel her way. Mo’Nique had the spunk to say it her way. Remember this, if Mo’Nique is revealing her innermost thoughts (based on her subject matter) there are many folks who feel the same way. Some people hide behind the truth and what a price they pay. Bunch of scared cats! People are tired of the BS the movie industry fester on – it is irritating, it undermines all levels of common sense and it is just plainly said, IGNORANCE! I refuse to pay my money to an industry who hasn’t adopted the many jewels of the world. I generally don’t watch the Oscars, but I watched it that night for Mo’Nique’s win and I am so glad I did.

    Every body goes to the bathroom and some people do not clean themselves correctly. Just like the mouth. Can you understand that?

    I praise Mo’Nique statement and whose statement cannot be said by the scared ones. I really feel sorry for those who think that their corrupt brain cells will continue to go unchallenged and Unscathed.

    Feel embarrassed over how some Americans treats its people and community! Sometimes our emotions are truly misplaced. I LOVE the US of America and I am sometimes embarrassed that I live in a country who mistreats its people. However, but then on the other-hand there are those who provide genuine acts of kindness, this is what I will attest to and am a product of it, this is outweighed more. There is nothing wrong with the world, the world is perfect, the concerns are with some of the people who exist in the world.

    I remain.

  31. Okay Okay. Let’s just call it like it is. Mo’ won and I am proud that she did and Sam’L did what he did being himself. I don’t see the harm in his expression at all. That is his response. Heck, he is a heck-ah-vah actor his self. Let’s not blow this all out of proportion. As for her open marriage, to me it is no different than Ms. Winfrey and Stedman living together or hooking up when they want to if they don’t live together. Now I am going to shut up because I know I got a big boulder of a log coming out of my own eye while I am looking at the toothpicks in others.

  32. Wow, appears to be a lot of assumptions, judging from the commentary. The meaning behind Samuel Jackson’s expression are pure speculation. Let’s take from Mo’Nique’s moment with negative hateration. new word right

  33. I wish that all the haters would stop making these comments. Why is it especially black people cant’ be happy when our brothers and sisters do good? We have enough obstacles, do we have to be another?

  34. She was definitely angry but… at who? I also felt she was being racist. I think that’s why Sam rolled his eyes. He was like WTF? She was the one who was acting political, like a rebel without a cause, projecting her own anger onto the academy folks. Let’s face it the entire film industry is business-political when it come to the academy awards and Monique is not going to change that. She IS one them now so she has to play the game like the rest.

  35. Sam Jackson and what his look mean is pure speculation… Unless you get a chance to ask Sam Jackson what his look meant, it might surprise those of you giving voice of reason and/or what was behind his expression. Then again, maybe asking Sam Jackson a question about his expression may embarrass you, where he may tell you to get out of his face. Has anyone ever thought that maybe something else was going on that brought on Sam L’s expression? The media will use a camera in an attempt to create a negative situation in order to separate people and generate chaos. This is unfortunate negativity and then people use incidents of this genre to show their true colors. This is no longer the fifties or sixties, and people of color will unfortunately hurt a person or group of people despite what continues to show up on the television screen. TV is making groups of people very angry. Perhaps TV Executives who use the media to exhibit their own ideology or uses the tube to expose their ill thoughts should be careful about what needs to be revealed (moments of ill entertainment) and should consider possible unsavory consequences. Remember Rodney King! A whole lot of folks was getting their butts whipped.

  36. I don’t care about all this crap, who-said-what; I was just so excited for an awesome actress to finally get what was coming to her. She’s not trying to be someone else; she’s unique, hence the name. A couple years ago, I saw Mo’Nique’s documentary on HBO about her visit to the women’s correctional facility, where she talked with the inmates, shared their pain, gave them so much unconditional love, and the comedy routine was the best! Since then, I’ve bought every movie she was in, including Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins (her role was hilarious; she steals every scene, especially the one where she kicks Martin Lawrence’s ass! She made me laugh out loud! Her character is mischievous, feisty, sexy, and she gives a performance that makes you practically pee your pants) and Phat Girlz, which was incredible, moving, at times funny, and still kicked ass; she made me cry, and that’s rare. For something so low-budget, you’d think it would really suck; let me tell you– if they had put anyone else in that role, they would never have been able to pull it off. She’s not the stereotypical skinny black/white actress (Halle, Angela, Vivica, etc) Whenever I see Mo’Nique is in a movie, I have to watch it. Not want to, have to! Lee Daniels (the director of Precious) is a genius, and I love him, love him, love him for putting the incomparable Mo’Nique in such an un-endearing role. She has guts, and no one could have done to that character what she did; have you ever seen her talk show? Nothing better; she gives love, respect, positive feedback, sweetness, and such humor. She’s the real deal! And I’m talkin from experience! She’s the actress equivalent to Aretha Franklin for the next generation.
