Holy caped shenanigans, Gothamites! The Batman Season 2, Part 2 DVD set picks up right where the campy 1960s TV series' Part 1 DVD set left off (same Bat-time, same Bat-channel!) and is chock-full of enough exciting misadventures, fiendish supervillains and dastardly deeds to satisfy Bat-fans of ...

Why do you hate me (a black person) so?

Feel free to share and comment

 I was going to stay out of the discussion of the shooting in Charleston, S.C., but, as a young, black, educated Christian man, I can’t sit back and say nothing.

I can’t let certain members of the media (FOX NEWS) say this was not racism, but an attack on Christians, especially when the suspect, and confessed killer made it plain that he was there to “kill black people.” His statements to the victims and to the police clearly show that he wanted to start a “race war”.

I also cannot sit by and let those same members of the media say that maybe the suspect has a mental illness, probably bi-polar, or insane.

From experts who have heard the facts, he is not any of those things. He, if truly guilty, meticulously prepared this heinous attack months in advance. He walked into a church of black people, who lovingly open their hearts and arms and welcomed him in to their bible study and sat there an hour before massacring them. He was totally determined to do what he did, with not even hearing God’s word and being shown love, changing his heart. He told police that he “almost” didn’t go through with it because everyone was so nice to him.

He, if truly guilty, is an evil young man, who made his feelings for black people known through his words to his roommate, his online photos (featuring him wearing a patch on his jacket of the flag of white-ruled Rhodesia, the African country that became Zimbabwe in 1980, and another patch of a flag from apartheid-era South Africa), his vicious words and his cruel actions.

It’s just evil. And while I don’t believe he came to his ideas of black people on his own, he, if truly guilty, did this despicable act of his own free will and left a survivor so she could tell others what he said and did.

I continue to say “if truly guilty, because everyone is supposed to be "innocent until proven guilty.” But, there is tons of proof that he did.

The judge in his court appearance is right when he says there are victims on both sides of this tragedy, and, while I think it was inappropriate for him to give a speech (which I’ve never seen done before in court before), he is right. But, this young man made those victims, those he shot and killed in  Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church  and his own family through his own actions.

I’m writing this because I am so sick and tired of people saying “you people always bring up race and racism.” Well, we people bring it up because in a lot of cases, it is. It may be surprising to some that in 2015, racism is still alive and in some cases, growing, but it is.

I won’t get into the Confederate flag and all of that foolishness, but I will ask, “What did black people every do to deserve the evil that has been done and continues to be done towards them?”

I’m not talking about the ones who have broken laws, committed terrible crimes or who kill their own people. I’m talking about the hard-working, loving people who love people, regardless of their race, who watch television shows and movies (in which they are barely or not even represented in) and do their best to live upright lives and better this world not only for themselves but for others.

The young man reportedly said that black people were “raping white women and taking over the country.” Sigh. SIgh. Sigh. And I must “Sigh” again. I heard the media report that he was a 9th grade dropout and if true, I doubt he doesn’t know the history of slavery and the Civil Rights Movement.

I know people hate me because of my skin color, yet my heart doesn’t understand why. I love people for who they are, not their skin color. I’ve been mistreated by black and white people, for many different reason (for being tall, chubby, smart, etc.) and it’s wrong, no matter the reason.

But, to say that black people are taking over the country? I can’t talk about that comment anymore….

We do have to be like the families of the victims and forgive and pray for this young man and others like him, but he still has to face the consequences of his crimes.

It’s funny and not funny that just days ago, people were making fun of and complaining about a white woman who had done everything she could to “be black” and express her love for black culture. But, wouldn’t we be living in a much better world, if all people loved black people enough to not kill them, but love them, claim them and even imitate them?

I loved what Jon Stewart had to say last night on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” (if you haven’t seen it, you can watch it at http://on.cc.com/1J7SSdx)

I have a lot of white friends and just as many black friends and I’ve been shown love and kindness from all them. But, for those who love me and care for me, I know there are others out there who would rather shoot me than shake my hand or share a neighborhood with me and that’s sad.

I love how everyone is coming together and singing “We Shall Overcome” and talking about how much we love one another. But, we always seem to say those things when tragedy strikes. But, my only question is: “How long will it last?”

With much love, concern, compassion and prayers,

Tyrone Tony Reed Jr.

Most people who are familiar with the terms “great power” and “great responsibility” know these phrases are synonymous with the Marvel superhero, Spider-Man.

But, do you know what would happen if a single 1962 issue of “Amazing Fantasy” #15, the first comic book to feature the web-crawler and his origin story, was passed from one person to the next over several decades?

How would this fantastic book and the strong moral story contained within its pages affect its owners and their lives? Would they truly understand that “with great power there must also come -- great responsibility” and if so, what would they do with that knowledge?

A group of amazing writers have came together and have answered those questions and more in the intertwining anthology, “With Great Power”. The book features stories by Ron Athey, Chris Brockow, Paul Castiglia, Michael Ciccolini, Brian K Morris, John Gleckler, Joshua T. Hall, Dan Johnson, Zac Pensol, Kelly Edwards, Rick L. Phillips, Brian Reaves and Tyrone Tony Reed Jr. and cover art by Khris Reaves.

This month marks the 53rd anniversary of Spider-Man’s debut. The comic, written by the legends Stan Lee, artwork by Steve Ditko and cover art by Ditko and Jack Kirby, was printed in March of 1962, but was cover-dated August 1962.

So, celebrate the birth of "your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man" by purchasing your copy of this spectacular book (available in paperback, hardcover and as an eBook) at http://amzn.to/1gx1BK6.

After you’ve read the book, please leave a review on Amazon and on your social media pages. Spread the word about how great this book is and buy copies for the readers in your life. 

Thanks!

Forever Father’s Day

It’s Father’s Day and my father and my wife’s father are no longer in this earth realm. We would love to call them and wish them a hearty, love-filled “Happy Father’s Day” and hear them reply, “Thank you! I love you!”

But, we can't, at least not physically.

My wife’s father passed on Nov. 2. Exactly seven weeks later, my father passed on Dec. 21, the first day of winter. I can’t convey to you in words what the past months, days, hours, minutes and seconds have been like for us and our families.

When I think of the day that my dad passed, I think of the start of the seasons. I will always be reminded that it was the “official start of winter”. So, with every season that has since came (spring and today, summer”), I am reminded of Ecclesiastes 3, verse 1-8 (Message version):

There’s an opportune time to do things, a right time for everything on the earth:
A right time for birth and another for death,
A right time to plant and another to reap,
A right time to kill and another to heal,
A right time to destroy and another to construct,
A right time to cry and another to laugh,
A right time to lament and another to cheer,
A right time to make love and another to abstain,
A right time to embrace and another to part,
A right time to search and another to count your losses,
A right time to hold on and another to let go,
A right time to rip out and another to mend,
A right time to shut up and another to speak up,
A right time to love and another to hate,
A right time to wage war and another to make peace.

You see, for me, every day, since my dad’s passing, is Father’s Day.
Each day, I remember moments we shared. Each day, I remember the goofy things he said and did. Each day, I remember what he taught me (directly and indirectly) and what he expected of me. Each day, I remember the movies and television shows we watched and how we always talked about the news.

But, most of all, I remember, each and every day, how much I love and miss my father and wish that he was still alive on this earth so I could spend more time with him. Until my father and I are reunited in Heaven, every day will be Father’s Day to me.

It saddens me so very much that my future children and grandchildren will not be able to be in their grandfather’s presence until they go to Heaven. But, with all of the memories, videos, recordings, pictures and chats I have of my dad, I’m going to do my best to make sure that they get a sense of who he is.

For those of you whose fathers have passed, I am praying for you, that God , your Heavenly Father who will always be there for you and with you, will comfort you, give you peace and over-shower you with love.

To those who still have their fathers, love on them and tell them what they mean to you.

In fact, tell everyone you love and care about daily that you love and care for them.

With love and prayers,
Tyrone Tony Reed Jr.

In loving memory of my father, Tyrone Reed Sr.; my father-in-law, David Lee Cheshier; my grandfathers: George W. Harris, Sr., Joshua Baker,Sr., and Henry Renfroe; my uncles, cousins and others who have been a father-figure to me. May God bless you all!!!
