The retailers have a duty to be more transparent in their promotional pricing…is this offer truly a ‘Black Friday exclusive’ or is it available more weeks than not. But also it is the job of consumers to have done their research. Nothing is handed to us on a plate so why would we not expect retailers to try and maximise the hysteria surrounding the event and bolster pretty lacklustre bricks-n-mortar sales? This time of year can be a win-win situation for both retailer and consumer, just don’t expect it to be easy!
World leaders condemn, distance themselves from the US president’s racist attacks; asserting ‘they stand with the 4 women aka (The Squad) ‘ – as new poll reveals that the majority of Americans disagree with Trump’s ‘go home’ comment.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday criticized President Donald Trump’s “go back” tweets about four Democratic congresswomen of color, saying that the president’s tweets contradict “the strength of America.”
“People of very different nationalities have contributed to the strength of the American people, so these are … comments that very much run counter to this firm impression that I have,” Merkel said during an annual news conference in Berlin. “This is something that contradicts the strength of America.”
“I distance myself firmly from this and feel solidarity with the women who were attacked,” she continued.
Merkel is the second western leader in a day to speak out about the controversy sparked by Trump’s remarks this week. On Thursday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the “send her back” chants that broke out at a Trump rally “completely unacceptable.”
Donald Trump was condemned for his attacks on four U.S. congresswomen of color, Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, by many prominent leaders, including Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany.
Paramount is feeling confident about their long-in-the-works sequel, Coming to America 2. The original 1988 comedy that saw Eddie Murphy‘s Prince Akeem head to America with his servant Semmi (Arsenio Hall) will get a second chapter next year as the studio has set an August 7, 2020 release. With that date announced, an official production start date and cast reveal shouldn’t be too awful far behind, especially since the team will want to get the cameras rolling sooner than later/BY
Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the script for the sequel, and Hustle & Flow filmmaker Craig Brewer will direct. The plot follows Akeem as he learns about a long-lost son in America, so he returns to meet the unlikely heir to the throne of Zamunda. That plot has some very basic similarities to the subplot of Black Panther, so one wonders if that film’s success provided the motivation and momentum needed to get another installment of Coming to America off the ground. Barris rewrote the script by the original film’s writers Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield and remains onboard as an executive producer.
