Cornbread, Earl, and me

I love old movies that have plots involving African Americans. I watched a movie called “Cornbread, Earl, and me.” The movie was made in 1975, and starred old time favorites like Bernie Casey, Michael Dunn, and Rosalind Cash. It also starred a current favorite, Lawrence Fishburne.  The plot is about a high school basketball hero who was accused of a crime that he did not commit. He was running home in the rain, and was gunned down by police. Does these sounds familiar? When the movie debuted, I was twelve years old. I never thought that we would be seeing much of the same violence today. It has been over 40 years, and American still has not addressed the needless murders of African American men.

I choose to do a review on this movie because the plot is real. This movie is great because the cast was not afraid to address the issue of law enforcement and the African American man. Cornbread, the character in the movie, is a symbol of the victims who are shot by law enforcement today. I know that a review is supposed to analyze the dynamics of the movie, but my reviews are designed to analyze issues that affect our everyday lives. We have to ban together like the cast of the movie to find the why this is happening, and to find a solution to stop it from happening again. This movie gets a “Thumbs Ups”, because of the issue that was overlooked in the 70’s, is now one of the biggest social issues that we face today. Maybe it is time for us to look at our past, to help solve these problems in the future

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
