Reel Quick Look: Rachel Dolezal’s New Book on Racial Identity & “Barber Shop 3” Sued for Theft



By: Evette Champion

Rachel Dolezal: The Authority of Racial Identity…?

We here at TRN have covered the goings on of Rachel Dolezal for a while now and because we all know how much you love hearing about the former Spokane, Washington NAACP chapter president, we figured we would continue to keep you up to date.

Dolezal sat down with the Today Show where she talked about the ”challenging” time in her life where she came under fire for claiming to be black although she comes from a white family. She also talked about some new opportunities coming her way, such as a book and a TED Talk. The book will talk about racial identity and she plans to explore the meaning of not “fitting into one box” all throughout her life.

Bow Wow Called Out For What?

Bow Wow (@ShadMoss) is known for showing off his money and how great his lifestyle is on Instagram, however, he was called out a couple days ago for not being honest when it comes to his “liquid cash.”

It began when he posted a picture of a huge block of $100 stacks on a bed with the caption, “**** a net worth,” he captioned the pic, “”


That would have been all good and all, except Timothy Sykes called him out for stealing the picture, slapping a filter on it and calling it his own.


Although he was called out, Bow Wow didn’t take it laying down and he commented on how humble he is trying to be with this post.


Barbershop 3: Entire Franchise Plagiarized?

Barbershop 3: The Next Cut is supposed to come out in theaters April 15th, but if J.D. Lawrence has any say about it, it won’t come out at all. Lawrence sued the producers of the Barbershop franchise, alleging that they stole his material. Lawrence is asking the judge to stop the release of the movie.

barbershop 3

J.D. Lawrence is a playwright and claims that the franchise stole ideas from his play, Scissors, which toured the country from 1998 to 2001. Like the Barbershop franchise, it takes place in a, you guessed it, a barbershop in a black community. The play also features an elderly barber who makes jokes about white people… Much like Cedric the Entertainer’s “Eddie.”

The playwright wants Warner Brothers, who distributes the film, and Showtime who produced the spin-off series to pay him $20 million before the 15th.

Many people question why Lawrence waited so long to say anything—many speculate it is because he was waiting for the franchise to become highly successful so he could get a bigger payday.

What do you think about any of these stories? Would you read Dolezal’s book? Should Bow Wow stop trying to be “humble?” Should Lawrence get the $20 million? Sound off!
