Tariq Nasheed: Hoodallstar of the month

Tariq Nasheed

Hoodallstars.com proudly recognizes the best-selling author and activist Tariq Nasheed for his contributions to African Americans as well as people of color all over the world.  For those who don’t know, Tariq is the creator of the highly successful documentary series Hidden Colors and Hidden Colors 2.  These powerful documentaries cast a light on a part of history that was purposely hidden from the mainstream agenda.  The movement he started with those two films has led many people to reevaluate what they’ve been taught in school as well as challenge certain ways of thinking.  We at Hoodallstars.com applaud his efforts and are making him the Hood Allstar of the month.

Now in the past we’ve given this honor to athletes (Clarissa Shields, Gabby Douglas) as well as heroes (Jarell Brooks).  Tariq didn’t accomplish any athletic feat, nor did he save people from being shot in a movie theater, but his endeavors speak volumes and his contributions to black awareness will hopefully make Black History more than just revisiting the same old black icons we’ve looked up to in the past.  In addition, this should help people celebrate our accomplishments instead of just looking back at slavery or the civil rights movement for inspiration.

We urge everyone to go out and purchase official copies of Hidden Colors as well as supporting positive brothers such as Tariq who are actively making a difference in this world.  He also has a great radio show where he talks about current events while dropping knowledge in a funny and entertaining way.  A lot of what he says is real shit.  Now, there are others that don’t share the same views as Hoodallstars.com.  Some might try to bring him and his accomplishments down, but don’t buy into any of that.  Listen, read, and watch what he does for yourself and form your own opinions.  The worst thing you can do is dismiss his positivity because of someone else’s short sighted hatred.

Hoodallstars.com salutes Tariq Nasheed and wishes him the best of luck in his future endeavors.

Claressa Shields is the Hoodallstar of the week.

Hoodallstars.com would like to congratulate Claressa Shields for becoming the 1st woman to win the Olympic Boxing middleweight title by beating Russian boxer Nadezhda Torlopova with scores of 19-12.  At the tender age of 17 she is the 2nd youngest fighter to win gold in either men or women’s Olympic boxing.  Shields performance in the London 2012 Olympic Games gave the United States a small glimmer of hope towards the future because it overshadowed the overall worst showing from America ever.  Unlike so many of her Olympic peers Shields victory flew under the radar.  NBC didn’t show any coverage of her winning effort on Thursday night.  She couldn’t even get a little 45 second highlight clip.  It’s cool though because Claressa Shields is a hero and Hoodallstar in our eyes.  She definitely made her hometown of Flint, Michigan as well as the rest of her country proud.  Hopefully she inspires more young women to pursue the sport of boxing and that the media will shine some light on these young athletes that work so hard to get to the top.  Claressa Shields, stand up and be proud because your efforts made you the hoodallstar of the week.

Gabby Douglas: HoodAllStar of the Week!

We’d like to congratulate Gabby Douglas for becoming the 1st African American woman to win the all-around gymnastics gold and being the 3rd straight American to win Olympic gymnastics’ biggest and most coveted prize.  She is now tabbed as being the next big thing in her sport and has numerous endorsement offers on the table.  I’m positive that Gabby Douglas and her award winning smile will be a great addition to any company out there.  We’re extremely proud of her accomplishments and wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors.  It’s possible that her performance in the Olympics could inspire countless young African Americans to follow in her footsteps and soar to the highest of heights in the sport of gymnastics.  This is why Gabby Douglas is the Hoodallstar of the week.

The Hoodallstar of the Month

Jarrell Brooks is a hero jpeg

Since the mainstream media isn’t making a big deal out of Jarell Brook’s heroic actions during the Colorado movie massacre that happened last week, we here at Hoodallstars.com felt we needed to acknowledge this young black man.  In a time where young adults appear to be more self-absorbed than ever, Jarell proved that he is not one to be categorized in such a way.  He put his own life on the line when he didn’t have to in order to help save the children of fellow movie goer Patricia Legarreta whose boyfriend Jamie Rohrs left for dead when he decided to make a break for it during the chaos.  Rohrs tossed his baby to the side and ran outside to his truck and sped off.  He would eventually come back after being reminded of his cowardice by the phone call from his girlfriend to pick her and the rest of the family up.  Jarell Brooks is very humble.  He doesn’t want to be praised as some type of hero but you can’t help but to do so when you look at the situation fate placed him in.  It’s like the roles were suddenly reversed.  The supposedly mature adult (and I use the word adult loosely here) Jamie Rohrs turned into the scary ass carefree teenager while Jarell Brook emerged as the responsible adult within the tragic seconds it took for bullets to fly and hit innocent lives.  In essence another man had to save another man’s family.

Rohrs would later on propose to Legarreta and to everyone’s surprise she said yes to being married.  It’s kind of strange actually because she was able to see a glimpse of Rohr’s true protective traits or should I say lack of and it did little to persuade her judgment.  His actions at the movie theatre don’t even tell the whole story here.  Have you noticed how in every picture of Rohrs he’s holding his kid all half assed with basically no support.  It’s like he doesn’t know how to hold a baby at all.  Maybe him being a pussy in a just a critical moment wasn’t so bad.  Could you imagine him running and jumping over rows of seats while holding his baby by one foot and banging his head against random walls while running and looking for an exit?  It’s a good thing Jarell Brooks was there.  On another note, who takes their four year old and baby to a midnight screening for a movie as violent as the Dark Knight Rises?  There doesn’t seem to be any kind of common sense in that house-hold.

So the next time you want to look down on the young black men of this generation, just remember Jarell Brooks and that you can’t tell who is a hero from just appearances because it’s what’s inside that really counts.
