Obviously, the ruling in the George Zimmerman case is bringing out a lot of heated reactions from celebrities.

Similarly, Solange Knowles led a protest rally outside of Borough Hall in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday to express her shock and appall at the recent judgement that George Zimmerman was completely guiltless in his shooting and killing of Trayvon Martin.

But Solange isn't the only Knowles upset with the jury's decision.

Her sister Beyoncé stopped her concert in Bridgestone Arena, Tennessee to honor Trayvon Martin after the not guilty verdict had been reached.

At the protest, Solange was seen holding the sign (above) with a quote from human rights' activist, Malcolm X, which read:

Was Malcolm X Gay?!?!?

Filed under: Gay Gay Gay

was malcolm x gay

According to a new book about the civil rights leader, the answer is YES!

The bound-to-be-controversial book claims that Malcolm X had "an early homosexual relationship with a white businessman."

Wowsa! We'll admit we didn't see that one coming…and we're pretty sure we are NOT alone.

Do U think the book's claims about Malcolm X are true?

Exciting Details On The Plot Of X-Men: First Class!

Filed under: Film Flickers

Oh man. This just keeps sounding better and better.

Now that the entire cast has pretty much been announced, more details about the plot of X-Men: First Class are emerging, and it sounds effing AWESOME!

We're hearing that the film takes place in 1960's reality where there is James Bond-esque 'retro-future technology,' with John F. Kennedy as President and Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X strongly featured in the backdrop.

The story will focus on Magneto and Professor X's friendship and its subsequent deterioration, and Xavier will neither be bald nor wheel-chair bound - although it will explain how that happens! We'll also get to see costumes that are inspired more from the old comics than the recent films!

Although a young Cyclops and Jean Grey will not appear, we've got it confirmed that Kevin Bacon will be portraying the villainous Sebastian Shaw, and January Jones WILL be The Hellfire Club's White Queen, Emma Frost!

Amazing!

It definitely sounds like these guys know what they're doing this time around!

We can't wait to see it! Exciting exciting!

Thoughts??

Malcolm X Assassin Released

Filed under: Legal Matters

Question is, was 45 years behind bars long enough to make up for what he did?

Thomas Hagan was the only person who ever admitted to being involved in the murder of the great civil rights leader, Malcolm X. Since 1965, he has been in jail, fulfilling his sentence, for a crime he admits was the deed of a young man who "acted out of rage on impulse and loyalty" to religious leaders.

Now, at age 69, he has finally been paroled and released, a decision that took 17 times for the courts to agree to and is highly objected to by groups dedicated to Malcolm X's memory.

Hagan has expressed constant regret for what he has done and now that he is free, he is hoping to use the master's degree he received in sociology while serving time to become a substance abuse counselor.

That's nice, but there are just some things can't be undone.
