Bsi 1,352.95 +41.23 +3.05%

The market responds positively to news that the Writers Guild of America will be picketing the opening of Tyler Perry's new studio Saturday.

Live better. Work Union.

Perry has amassed a fortune catering to the black audience while refusing to compensate his African-American writers at union standards. Perpetuating an already malignant wage discrepancy between writers of color and their white counterparts. Saturday's action will be a step in the right direction.


George Tillman, Jr. (GT2) 6.52 +1.19 +18.25%

Tillman hasn't directed a movie since 2000's "Men of Honor", but if the trailer for "Notorious" is any indication, now's the time to buy.


Black Bluesmen (XRDS) 3.21 -.94 -22.65

Bo Diddley. Dead. Muddy Waters. Dead. R.L. Burnside. Dead. All the blues done gone. So much so that the best blues band around is made up of two guys from Akron, OH.

Not that there's anything to be ashamed of, as these Junior Kimbrough acolytes have found a way to make the music vital again. It's just damn good music.

What, you say you don't know Junior Kimbrough? What kind of negro are you?
