A ‘muse watch’ … will add to my list! Director Arteta … Puerto Rican pride! 🇵🇷

New fan here! I am in awe of Miguel Arteta’s directorial magic in his latest film, Beatriz at Dinner, written by Mike White—whose nuanced screenplay, articulated by superlative actors, made it all come together. I must admit that I am still feeling distressed by the lingering echoes of the disturbing, but very familiar, dialogue. And Salma Hayek’s role was marvelous as the ever-so-slightly off-key, decent, truthful, and compassionate soul.

Miguel Arteta is a film and television director who, born in Puerto Rico, was raised on the island and in several other different Latin American countries, including Costa Rica, where he briefly attended high school before moving to the United States. He is known for the films Chuck and Buck (for which he was awarded the Independent Spirit John Cassavetes Award), The Good Girl, Cedar Rapids, and Youth in Revolt. Earlier this year, he was the guest director…

INDEPENDENCE AND DIFFERENT AMERICANS 

Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” is a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration of Independence.

We don’t have to go back to Frederick Douglass’ time or race.

Just look at the current reality in this nation.

African Americans, Muslims, Latinos, Asians and other minorities aren’t totally free and equal.

They aren’t really equal in the eyes of the countrymen.

It won’t be getting any better any time soon!

What is there to celebrate?

On June 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed, marking the colonists’ independence from Great Britain

July 4th celebrations remind some Black Americans of America’s sordid racial past.

(July 5, 2012)

But some 75 years later, some black Americans weren’t ready to celebrate.

Abolitionist movement leader Frederick Douglass gave a scathing speech the day after Independence Day in 1852, saying:

“This Fourth of July is yours, not mine.

You may rejoice, I must mourn. Do you mean, citizens, to mock me, by asking me to speak to-day?”

Douglass reminded listeners that when the Declaration of Independence was signed, many blacks were still slaves. Even the British were more likely to offer freedom to blacks than the colonists.
Fast forward to 2012 and 2017, where many Black Americans still remember Douglass’ sentiments.
