To provide for his family’s future after he is diagnosed with lung cancer, a chemistry genius turned high school teacher teams up with an ex-student to cook and sell the world’s purest crystal meth.
When chemistry teacher, Walter White, is diagnosed with Stage III cancer and given only two years to live, he decides he has nothing to lose. He lives with his wife and teenage son, who has cerebral palsy, in New Mexico. Determined to ensure that his family will have a secure future, White embarks on a career of drugs and crime. He proves to be remarkably proficient in this new world as he begins manufacturing and selling methamphetamine with one of his former students. The series tracks the impacts of a fatal diagnosis on a regular hard working man and explores how a fatal diagnosis affects his morality and transforms him into a major player of the drug trade
Giancarlo Esposito, the actor best known for his role as meth kingpin Gus on Breaking Bad, gave an interview with The Wrap about his new show, “Revolution,” on NBC, his potential nomination for an Emmy, and about growing up the child of an Italian father and an African American mother.
Most surprising about the interview, however, was when Esposito– who you may also remember as Buggin’ Out in Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing— shared the story of a recent and tense standoff with the NYPD. From The Wrap:
Days before the interview, Esposito was stopped and frisked by New York police while walking out of a theater where he was rehearsing a play. After several frantic minutes – with him and officers screaming, and their guns drawn – they realized they had the wrong guy. Their suspect had a hoodie, and Esposito was wearing a suit. When it was over, one of the officers recognized him, from his recent turn on ABC’s “Once Upon a Time.”
Now, you’d think Esposito would be upset at what seems a sadly familiar tale of racial profiling in New York– 87 percent, after all, of the 684,330 NYPD stops in 2011 were of blacks or Latinos. But Esposito didn’t step into the escalating debate over the controversial police practice. Instead he talked more abstractly about the importance of personal healing:
“I refuse to walk around, carrying that sack of racist crap,” he said. “Luis Buñuel made great movies. And in all his movies there’s one old guy… who walks through the background with a big pillowcase, a sack of shit. That’s your stuff. So when I’m healing, I’m healing my stuff.”
“I came to a wonderful understanding through working with Spike [Lee] on those movies and disagreeing with him about race,” said Esposito, who has acted in numerous of Lee’s films. “He was completely pro-black and anti-white, and I didn’t feel that way in my heart. I felt like I wanted to be a human being and represent myself as such, but every time you walk out into the world, you’re treated a certain way.”

Famed radio personality Star shares his thoughts on the George Zimmerman verdict and Charles Barkley agreeing with the “not guilty” verdict. He also speaks about Cornell West’s “Obama’s a Global George Zimmerman” comments and shares his own thoughts on Obama.
At the beginning of July, Donald Glover announced he would be reducing his role on the NBC comedy Community to focus on his rapping career as Childish Gambino. At the end of the same month, Glover tweeted what appeared to be a trailer for a short film called Clapping for the Wrong Reasons. So much for putting a kibosh on that acting career.
In addition to previewing some new tracks, the video shows how deep Gambino’s Rolodex is. Keep your eyes open for appearances by Flying Lotus, Danielle Fishel (Topanga from Boy Meets World), porn star Abella Anderson (va-va-voom), and Gambino’s fellow rappers Trinidad Jame$ and Chance the Rapper playing a heated game of Connect Four. Whether this is hinting at a follow up to Camp/Royalty is unknown as of now, but check out Clapping for the Wrong Reasons below.
Note: If you dont get gold tooth part…
My grandpa told me that a long time ago when a man bought his own freedom he would show off his freedom and his new found “wealth” by showing how many gold teeth he could buy Later on it became a status symbol of gambling men , bootleggers, musicians or for that matter any black person that didnt work for white people anymore
All this changed in the late 70s and early 80s when it became connected to drug dealers, robbers, ang gangsters
in the 90s to the present it is now worn as fashion and many people dont know its true history so they make fun of it, ususaully by white people which is funny because they were originally a middle finger to slave masters
