The Return of Wesley Snipes…

Wesley Snipes was released on April 2, 2013 of this year; an remained on house arrest until July 19th.

He served 28 months of a 3 year sentence for tax evasion; he denied any wrongdoing, but the government wasn’t hearing an of it.

I was and to some degree, I’m still a fan of Mr. Snipes, but he sure angered many Black women because of an interview in Ebony Magazine in which he implied that Black women were “hard to deal with.”  The Sisters were outraged and he paid for it in lackluster ticket sales by US in many of his future movies.  Lesson here: DON’T TURN OFF YOUR BASE!

However, this really wasn’t what ruined Wesley’s career.  No.  Not at all.  It was an interview he gave to Ebony in 1997 September issue.  Link: http://www.questia.com/library/1G1-20013891/wesley-snipes-on-his-hot-career-black-women-interracial

Lesson here: DON’T TURN OFF YOUR BASE!

He has work already.  He’ll be appearing in the new Expendables movie and other projects that he was working on before he went to prison.

Don’t get me wrong, Wesley is one of the best actors out there; however, he’s had a lot of negative incidents that many people felt was Karma coming back on him.  The most infamous was it was finally uncovered over a decade ago by the R & B singer Christopher Williams of Wesley being the one who hit Halle Berry so hard; it left the actress deaf in one ear.  Link: http://www.contactmusic.com/news-article/wesley-snipes-named-as-halle-berry-abuser

Prison can make even the strongest men humble.  Time will only tell…but I do hope that Mr. Snipes has exorcised his inner demons and can rise from the ashes.

Other actors have made successful comebacks: ie, Harry Connick Jr.  to name a few.

He’s only human…let us all pray for him.

*And to the Sisters: He never said he didn’t like Black women in that Ebony interview.  He actually loves Black women.  It’s just what many heard.

    I stay boycotting Wesley Snipes. If he’s in it, I’m not watching it. He’s is the standard dark skinned black male that has and spreads hatred for black women.

  4. I use to love this dude. The kind of love one hetero Black male has for another hetero Black male. And I must admit that I fell in that “he don’t like Black women camp”. Which crushed me because he was a dark skinned male much like myself and I loved Black women and the Blacker the better. In attitude and skin tone.

    After I learned of his stance against the government and the truth about his feelings about OUR women, all is well. I wish him luck and wish the hater learns the effing truth.

  5. I saw Expendables 1 and 2. Both were pretty good action films. I heard this one will have Bruce Willis,Jet Li,Jason Statham and Mel Gibson. With Wesley added to the mix….it should really be action packed! I just hope he isn’t playing the bad guy. Don’t get me wrong I know he can plays a great villain in films. I just would like to see him as one of the good guys in his first big screen return. Should be good though.

      Wesley is a trained martial artist. Great fighter in real life. He actually does most of the action himself in many of his movies. He’s actually choreographed many of the fight scenes in some of his movies in the past.

      • Yeah he’s been into martial arts for years. he showed his expert skills in his Blade films. Do you know he had his own martial arts training camp? he was having it built on his own property. But then he the government came after him for not “paying his taxes”.
        Hmmmm…….the timing was very suspect,don’t you think? I think they believed he was up to something so they went after him. Food for thought.

        This does sound suspicious.

        A while back I posted a blog relating to Blacks taking up arms and that all of this talk about the Second Amendment applies to Black people as well.

        Doesn’t it look suspicious for police to be going into Black communities trying to convince people to turn in their weapons; yet, at the same time, whites are the most armed group in this country.

        Makes you go…hmmmmm.

      • Yes it does make you wonder. he had his own little compound and they came and took Wesley away for so called tax evasion. He probably had to shut it down and now he gets the message that we are not supposed to practice self defense in mass numbers. These people will stoop to anything to keep us oppressed.
