This looks like an amazing film already!

It was announced that Oprah Winfrey would play Annie Lee Cooper in the upcoming movie Selma, about Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement, and it seems even better than we thought it would be.

This is soooo extremely messed up!

While the rest of the world was mourning the loss of one of its greatest humans, one mischievous Twitter account was up to no good!

Certain folks (who shall not be named) concocted a fake tweet, made it look like it came from Paris Hilton's account, and then spread it around the internet claiming she had posted the message and then quickly deleted it!

The worst part? The fake tweet was mocking Nelson Mandela!!!

Yeah, that very same South African hero that died today!

HOW RUDE!

Paris was apparently on a plane when the hoaxers struck, but she quickly tweeted out an angry message as soon as she landed.

Hear are her ACTUAL tweets:

Martin Luther King Jr.’s Dream Celebrates 50th Anniversary! Watch Historic Speech Here!

Filed under: PolitikInspiration

On August 28, 1963, a "dream sequence" captivated the world. 50 years later, one man and his dream still live on.

Some would argue that Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream remains unfinished, but in spite of that, we choose to look ahead and see a bright, glorious future, just as Dr. King did while speaking to over 200,000 people in front of the Lincoln Memorial during the March on Washington.

There are things in life that we know will always endure, and this momentous, powerful speech will do just that.

Ch-ch-check out the video (above) and take a moment to reflect on how far we've come in half a century- and how much farther we have to go.

This is one dream that humanity can never, and will never give up on.

jim carrey salutes martin luther king jr

Jim Carrey has already proven he can make a potty humor argument for more gun control.

Now he's making a heartfelt one.

The comedian took a break from the comedy on Thursday to send a special salute to Martin Luther King, Jr. on the anniversary of his shooting death. He tweeted:

Rather than repeating his view, all he did was remind us of another special person taken from us by a madman with a gun. He also tweeted:

Anti-Bigotry Video Makes Us Wonder: What Would The World Be Like Without Hatred?

Filed under: InspirationPerezTV

In today's edition of "Ponder This While Choking Back Tears" we introduce to you a VERY poignant, beautifully crafted PSA from the Anti-Defamation League, titled Imagine A World Without Hate.

Grab a kleenex and press play (above)!

The creative concept portrays a potential future where those who have died in the past as a result of hate-fueled crimes are still alive as pivotal members of a global society.

Fusing the music of John Lennon with imagery of Martin Luther King Jr., Anne Frank, Matthew Shepard, and others, this is a video that needs to be viewed on every screen!!

Humans for a humane world! Whoop whoop!
