To be completely honest, a Snoop Dogg movie doesn't seem farfetched given how much the legendary rapper has been able to accomplish throughout his career in the entertainment industry. Although we may not see Snoop's life story depicted in multiple films, at least one of the major moments in his life could be covered in a biopic. On Monday, he spoke with the Associated Press about whether or not there is an actor out there that can really encapsulate the Doggfather's persona on the big screen.

"There's so many dope actors that have graced the screen and there's so many dope actors that have yet to grace the screen, Snoop tells the AP. " I don't know who could play me. It would have to be someone who could win me over."

He further goes on to say that an actor like Jamie Foxx who has a great range of comedy and drama acting credits—and was able to portray Ray Charles— could be a good fit.

"When I think of someone playing you, I think of how Jamie Foxx played Ray," he said. "That was like spot on. So I would have to find me a Jamie Foxx or someone that could actually become Snoop Dogg on screen and give me all of that element. And I don't know if that person is out there or has yet to be discovered. But when I get to that point, I'ma find him."

It is quite evident that Snoop is on the lookout for someone who can portray his likeness, even if it is somebody who isn't that prominent in Hollywood. When it comes to seeing when the biopic could come to fruition, that is still up in the air. In 2018, Snoop did tease working with Lee Daniels and Black Panther director, Ryan Coogler to develop his idea for a movie, further exploring the potential to flesh out his life in a miniseries. Should this happen, it could prove to be a very interesting show for fans.

Children have a place on the frontlines of the culture wars

What Should We Do When the Culture Wars Invade Our Children’s Lives?

You know when there’s a controversy whether to include both sides to the Holocaust in a Texas school district, the culture wars have once again invaded the children’s lives. Similarly, in Southern Pennsylvania, books by people of color were banned (or per the official Central York School statement: “frozen” for an entire year.)

These discussions by the school boards are impacted by the bills passed in government, as in the case of House Bill 3979 requiring public school teachers to present various points of view when teaching about current events and social issues. Often, the impulse to clutch pearls and to “think of the children” is a rhetorical device to further political causes. As the larger climate in a racialized society such as the United States grapple with a history of slavery and the fight for racial justice--with the most current iteration being the black lives matter protests in the summer of 2020--what the children learn in schools have become a new battleground for those who land on opposing sides of this culture war.

Why I don’t always expect my children to be completely truthful

Personally, I don’t expect the kids to always be completely truthful. Sometimes their truth bombs can be very unwelcome

Why I don’t always expect my children to be completely truthful

It's 7 am on a Wednesday.

My five-year-old bursts into our room like a whirlwind, and I blearily say good morning and remind him that he's going into school dressed in his onesie and wellies for a "wild rumpus day."

He replied, "Yes, I know. Don't forget we need to bring in sausages for the party".

Suddenly I'm wide awake and interrogating him; "What sausages? What party? What do you mean we're bringing sausages?!" I have a vague memory of going into school as a kid with sausage rolls or cheese and pineapple sticks for end-of-year parties, but I didn't think that was still a thing.
