Magazine Cover Controversy And Blacks

By Chance, chancellorfiles.com

Why is it that when black entertainers are featured on the front cover of Vogue magazine — they often look silly, embarrassing, funny silly poses and ways of dressing, and stereotypically playing up some of the worst stereotypes about blacks?     

Vogue magazine did feature with Basketball star Lebron James on the front cover. They have Lebron looking like a big black sexually depraved brute lusting after a very fair skinned white looking woman.

 

Former professional basketball player Charles Barkley was featured on the front cover of sports illustrated FEBRUARY 2007 EDITION. Barkley had no shirt on, with neck and wrist shackled looking like a run away slave.    

Singer Jennifer Hudson was featured on the front cover of vogue magazine with mouth wide opened looking like a loud mouth black woman and a picaninny with big thick red lips.  

Blacks have to be careful about letting themselves get talked into these types of embarrassing shoots that make them look brute like, sexually lustful, silly, and stupid. I feel that the photographers also take many photos of these black entertainers but often choose the most silly and embossing photo they can find out of all the photos. These photographers know that these photos will make the black entertainer look stupid. The question is why does the editors at vogue even allow it to be printed? The editors can see that these pics look goofy and embarrassing.      

 

Cover Controversy

 Annie Leibovitz/Vogue

Vogue’s April Shape Issue featuring Lebron James and Gisele Bundchen.

Do you think LeBron James’ Vogue cover is offensive?

NEW YORK – When Vogue announced its April cover starring LeBron James and Gisele Bundchen, the magazine noted with some fanfare that James was the first black man to grace its cover.

But the image is stirring up controversy, with some commentators decrying the photo as perpetuating racial stereotypes. James strikes what some see as a gorilla-like pose, baring his teeth, with one hand dribbling a ball and the other around Bundchen’s tiny waist.

It’s an image some have likened to "King Kong" and Fay Wray.

"It conjures up this idea of a dangerous black man," said Tamara Walker, 29, of Philadelphia.

Photographer Annie Leibovitz shot the 6-foot-9 NBA star and the 5-foot-11 Brazilian model for the cover and an inside spread. Vogue spokesman Patrick O’Connell said the magazine "sought to celebrate two superstars at the top of their game" for the magazine’s annual issue devoted to size and shape.

"We think Lebron James and Gisele Bundchen look beautiful together and we are honored to have them on the cover," he said.

James told The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer he was pleased with the cover, saying he was "just showing a little emotion."

"Everything my name is on is going to be criticized in a good way or bad way," James told the paper. "Who cares what anyone says?"

But magazine analyst Samir Husni believes the photo was deliberately provocative, adding that it "screams King Kong." Considering Vogue’s influential history, he said, covers are not something that the magazine does in a rush.

"So when you have a cover that reminds people of King Kong and brings those stereotypes to the front, black man wanting white woman, it’s not innocent," he said.

O’Connell, the Vogue spokesman, declined further comment.

In a column at ESPN.com, Jemele Hill called the cover "memorable for all the wrong reasons." But she said in an interview that the image is not unusual – white athletes are generally portrayed smiling or laughing, while black sports figures are given a "beastly sort of vibe."

For example, former NBA star Charles Barkley was depicted breaking free of neck and wrist shackles on the cover of Sports Illustrated. Dennis Rodman graced the cover of Rolling Stone with horns poking out of his forehead and his red tongue hanging out.

Images of black male athletes as aggressive and threatening "reinforce the criminalization of black men," said Damion Thomas, assistant professor in the Department of Kinesiology at University of Maryland.

But others say the image show James’ game face – nothing more. And they note that Bundchen hardly looks frightened.

"James is a huge, black beautiful masculine statue and Gisele is a feminine, sexy gorgeous doll," said Christa Thomas, 36, a black account supervisor in Los Angeles.

"I didn’t see any kind of racist overtone to it," she said. "I still don’t. I think there is such a hypersensitivity to race still in this country."

Husni said it is too soon to know how the magazine is selling, though the controversy could increase

 sales as people rush out to get a "collector’s edition."

If nothing else, Walker said the cover underscores the need for a more diverse workplace.

"If more people of color worked for Vogue in positions of editorial authority, perhaps someone in the room might have been able to read the image the way so many of us are reading it now, and had the power to do something about it," she said. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tiger Woods, Racism, And Success

 

By Chance Kelsey, chancellorfiles.com 

 

Tiger Woods: "I become aware of my racial identity on my first day of school, on my first day of kindergarten," "A group of sixth grades tied me to a tree, spray painted the word ‘nigger’ on me, and threw rocks at me. That was my first day of school. And the teachers really didn’t do much of anything. I used to live across the street from Tiger Woodsschool and kind of down the way a little bit. The teachers said ‘okay, just go home.’ So I had to out run all these kids going home, which I was able to do. It was certainly on eye opening experience, you know, being five years old we were the only minority family in all of Cypress, California."

Some of teachers at Tigers school were racist too, and did nothing to help or protect him from the racism of these white kids.

Tiger Woods: When my parents moved in, before I was born, they used to have these oranges come through the window all the time. And it could have not been racially initiated or it could have been. We don’t know. But it was very interesting though people don’t necessarily know it, that I grew up in the 1980’s and still had incidents. I had a racial incident even in the 1990’s at home where I grew up, the Navy golf course. And right before the 1994 U.S. Amateur, I was eighteen years old, I was out practicing, just hitting pitch shots and some guy just yelled over the fence and used the N word numerous times at me. That’s in 1994," Tiger said.

 

Many black Americans feel Tiger does not like being black. This is not true, Earl Woods, Tiger’s father was out working most of the time — so Tiger was around his mother a lot as a little boy growing up, and he was more familiar with the Asian culture — because that was his mother’s culture and she raised him mainly in Asian culture. Tiger’s mother is from Thailand. Living in a predominantly white neighbor was tough at times for Tiger because of the racism he experienced once in awhile.

Tiger grew up around whites and Asians; he did not grow up around black Americans, in black American culture. He grew up in white and Asian culture. He prefers to be called caublasian. Tiger created the name caublasian to symbolize the white, Asian, Native American, and black ancestry he has inside his genes. Tiger has a beautiful caramel brown skin tone.

This is an quote From a conference at Stanford university (May 1995), the conference was about discussing racial stereotyping in sports.

Stanford university Thursdays May 11, 1995: Woods, an economics major who is only the third black golfer in American college competition during the last 15 years, told of the racist mail he receives among his fan mail, the unwelcome attitude with which some tournament organizers greet his plans to host clinics for youngsters while he is competing, and of incidents where his golf prowess is invisible to people who see only his skin color. Just in the past two weeks, he said, he has received two letters from people telling him that "niggers" do not belong in golf. On a recent trip to his Southern California home, the owner of a house facing a golf course that Woods played was so convinced Woods was trying to hit balls at the house that he demanded course officials "kick this nigger off the f-ing course." "People get this stereotype that racism is in the South. That’s B.S. It’s everywhere," Woods told the campus audience.

Tiger has experienced racism, and he has suffered be called “nigger” just like many black Americans have. He did not let the negative experiences he has had as a kid growing up stop him, and hold him back from becoming one of the most successful athletes in golf history.

 Bobby And The Debarge Family Legacy

By Chance Kelsey, chancellorfiles.com

The Debarge family was one of the most successful R&B groups of the 1980s. Debarge consisted of brothers El, Randy, James, Mark, and sister Bunny. Even before the Debarge came out in the 1980s they had two older brothers named Bobby and Tommy who were members in a music group named switch. Bobby was the oldest of the Debarge children and Tommy was the second oldest. Bobby was the lead singer in the R&B group switch before he left the group. Bobby had a beautiful falsetto voice, and it was his voice that made switch so popular. El Debarge has a beautiful falsetto voice also, with his voice he helped make Debarge famous.

Update: Hip Hop artist rapper Kanye West broke down into tears on Saturday, November 17, 2007 on stage at a concert in Paris, France while attempting to perform (sing) the song "Hey Mama." The fans starting chanting Kanye, Kanye, and some (certain) members of his came to console him. West eventually left the stage and returned soon to perform the song "Stronger" and the audience started yelling their support. West is expected to return to the United States (America) for his mother’s funeral, which will take place Tuesday in Oklahoma city. Dr. Jan Adams under investigation (regarding the death of Donda west) By Chance kelsey, chancellorfiles.com Chance: Dr. Jan Adams is in serious trouble after his patient Donda West died one day later after receiving cosmetic surgery from him. Donda West was the mother of Hip hop artist Kanye West. The surgery was done on November 9, 2007 and Donda died the next day on November 10, 2007.

Dr. Andre Aboolian of Beverly Hills, California said that Donda West came to him and wanted him to do cosmetic surgery but he refused because she had a medical condition that could lead to a heart attack. Abolian told her to go and get medical clearance (approval) from another Doctor, and then come back and see him. Donda never came back to see him. We now know she got the cosmetic surgery done by Dr. Jan Adams. Some of the comments I have seen and read on the Internet blogs, and websites are very interesting. Some people ask was Donda West pursuing Vanity?

 

Dr Jan Adams is not even board certified to practice and perform plastic surgery according to the Medical board. According to records Jan Adams has been sued twice, Some new organizations say Adams has been arrested twice on on DUI’s — but the website TMZ.com says that Adams has been arrested three times for DUI (driving under the influence).

 

DR. Jan Adams is a very handsome Caramel brown skin black, with a deep voice, aura of confidence, friendly personality, and comes across as very intelligent. So it is easy to see why people would trust.

 

Julie Coleman is a young female in her late 30s, and she went to DR Jan Adams for cosmetic surgery. The end result was she ended up physically scared for life around the breast and waist areas of her body. Julie did an interview with TMZ.com, and she said that because of the scars her husband would not look at her for 9 months, and it almost caused a divorced.

 

Also Jan Adams has his personal website advertising his cosmetic surgery. He also, has another website that sells skin bleaching creme to lighten the skin tones for women of color.

  http://www.drjanadams.com/   and http://www.drjanadamswomenofcolor.com/ 

 Jan Adams career as a Doctor is over, and it is sad to see that Miss Donda west lost her life she died at the age of 58 years old.

Floyd Sneed And Chance

 

By Chance Kelsey, chancellorfiles.com  

 

Chance: I remember back in 1993 in Hollywood, California I was sitting at the barber shop waiting to get my done and hair cut, and in walks a black man with a white T-shirt, white baseball cap, and blue shorts and his face was clean shaven. He sat in a chair right next too me. We began talking with each other, and he introduced himself. He said his name was Floyd Sneed. He also talked with other people in the shop too.

 

 

He was telling the owner of the barber shop (Nolan) that he had a show to do soon. When Floyd and I started talking again we talked about his Drumming career. He mentioned that he was a drummer and that he was the drummer for the group Three Dog Night back in the 1960s and 1970s. Floyd had a very friendly and youthful energy about him. His personality was easy going. A year earlier I had seen an television interview Chuck Negron the lead singer of Three Dogs Night. In the interview Chuck said that he ended up homeless and on drugs for a while.

 

So I decided to ask Floyd what it was like working with Chuck, Floyd said he liked it a lot. He said he enjoyed the years that he was with the group. Floyd said that did opening acts for other groups to. I asked Floyd does the music industry give out royalties to the former members of the group Three Dogs Night. He said yes.   

 

Floyd got his hair cut, and when he got ready to leave he gave me his card. We spoke some more, and he left. It was a pleasant encountered with music history.   

 

Floyd also has a brother named Bernie Sneed who is also a musician. Floyd Sneed is the uncle of actress Rae Dawn Chong, Rae’s mother and Floyd are brother and sister. Floyd is from Canada.

Do you feel that Duane Dog Chapman is a racist or did he just used poor choice of words?

 

Duane Dog Chapman’s 5 minute tape phone call to his son Tucker Chapman  

Chance: Many whites are defending Duane Dog Chapman even though he made those racist comments. The reality is that in America big money is mad out of bashing black Americans on television, radio, and vilifying them in movies. 

 

The fact that many whites have come to the defense of Dog Chapman proves this. Whites are so readily to forgive Chapman, but not so ready to forgive when it was former NFL football player Michael Vick, Former Grey’s anatomy actor Isaiah Washington, and even in the backlash to the Jena 6 case in Louisiana, and the Genarlow Wilson case in Georgia. Attacking blacks unprovoked has always been a pass in America.

Don Imus would have gotten away with it too, if there was not this out cry against him. Some people that Dog Chapman is not a racist it was just the fact that he comes from the streets trailer parks, lived the life of a motor cycle gangster, and therefore, Chapman was use to just speaking his mind and speaking in general lingo. Some people feel his son should have kept the conversation between them. Duane Chapman was angry that his son Tucker Chapman was dating a black woman name Monique Shinnery.

Duane Chapman has said it was not her race that he disliked but her character. On the tape Dog Chapman uses the word Nigger to describe Monique. Black women have had reputation in America of being gold diggers, and Chapman on the tape said he is not about to loose everything he has worked for in 30 years in behind Monique threatening to expose him for using the word NIGGER in the past.  

 

Could Chapman had felt that Monique was going to try to gold dig her way to the top by brining down a popular television star like Chapman. It sounds like Dog Chapman felt so.    Continue Reading »

 

 El Debarge, Kid Rock, And Their Mixed Race Kids 

 (The Mixed race and Biracial Kids of celebs) 

By Chance Kelsey, chancellorfiles.com

Singer El Debarge has 10 kids, I saw a photo of El with four of his kids and all 4 were clearly mixed. The singer Kid has a bi racial son the mother is black and Kid rock is white. Now I have noticed, on the Internet at certain blogs and websites that Kid rock’s son is referred to as bi racial (mixed). The boy is definitely mixed. At the Sandra rose blog a debate broke out because some people said Kid rock’s son is so handsome, and mixed. Another commenter said why is it that Kid rock’s son is considered mixed, but Senator Barack Obama is just considered black. The commenter goes on to say could it be because Obama looks more black in appearance. The posters also talked about how is it, that because some bi racials have light skin and good hair they are considered mixed, those biracials who have hair like blacks, and have darker skin are considered just black. I have observed that there is a general truth to what these posters said, and that is, the lighter the skin the more you can get away with saying you are mixed or biracial. From what I have observed, if the skin tone is a yellow color, yellowish red, or whitish it is easier to get people to at least call you mixed. Even if they put the ODR (one drop rule) on you they still will at least call you bi racial, or accept you as an MGM, If you are an MGM who acknowledges that you are mixed.

 

They still will try to apply the ODR if you have visible black ancestry, but at least they acknowledge you are mixed. Halle Berry, Tiger Woods, Rae Dwan Chong, and Lenny Kravitz are immediately ODRed because they show a lot of visible black ancestry. Alicia Keyes is biracial but she  Identifies as black, but even Alica Keyes has more room to say she is mixed than darker mixed race people because Alicia has yellowish skin. Vin Diesel, Wentworth Miller, and Mariah Carey are not ODRed to the same strong degree as darker mixed race people (mulattoes). Mariah Carey acknowledges she is biracial and black at the sametime but her phenotype will always protect her from the full effects of the ODR. Part of the problem is that caramel brown skin and Dark skin mulattoes have phenotypes that are stereotyped as black. Someday mixed race people will have a choice to choose how they want to be labeled with having to worry about other people labeling them black only. This is why I say a third category called mixed race and multiracial is needed. Personally I don’t believe Kid Rock puts the ODR on his son.

R&B singer Keke Wyatt has generated some controversy regarding her comments to essence magazine (essence.com). Keke said that her white mother frequently used the word nigger towards her and her brother. Keke also acknowledges that she is biracial, many blacks are angry that Keke views herself only as part black but not fully.

Many Blacks all over the Internet at various website forums, and blogs are saying that Keke is simply black. So therefore, this means that blacks are putting the ODR (one drop rule) on Keke, this the one drop blood rule that says if you have one drop of black blood in you then you are black is still a problem in America.  In 1967 the Supreme court removed the one drop blood rule from the law books. Keke is not black, Keke is mixed race and bi racial.

K.W.: People always say I look really different in person and ask, “What are you mixed with?” Then when I tell them they say, “I thought you were all Black!” I get that a lot because my mother is Caucasian and my father is Indian and Black.

 Essence.com: Do you identify as a Black woman?

 K.W.: I am a woman. I ain’t like Tiger Woods. The truth is I’m 25 percent Black. I claim to be Black, Indian and I claim to be White. I’m all of it. If you ask me, “What are you?” I’m going to say, “I’m a woman.” I stand up for all women. I don’t care if you’re Black, White, Chinese, whatever. I don’t know what my mama put on my birth certificate…. (Laughs)

Essence.com: So did your mom ever discuss race with you?

K.W.: I know when I was a little girl she would never let me and my brother watch movies that criticized Black people or where White people treated Black people really disgusting, like Roots. She didn’t want us to see how White people treated Black people because she probably thought we might start hating White people.

Essence.com: Was she afraid of how you and your brothers might perceive her?

 K.W.: I used to tell her we’re not blind to the fact because we’re sitting there listening to people call her a “n—– lover” or accusing my daddy of being a “sell out” because he’s with a White chick. I told her she didn’t have to hide that stuff from us because we did see and hear about it, and kids did treat us differently. Essence.com: Did she ever talk to you about the N-word?

 K.W.: My mom was raised around African-American people all her life. She can cornrow and everything. All she knows is the African-American way of living, because her stepfather was Black and she was raised by his family. She will use the N-word like it’s going out of style. I say, “Mama you can’t just go around using the N-word,” and she’s like, “I don’t give a damn. I say what I want to say. N—a ain’t no color, it’s an ignorant person.” Essence.com: But that word is still synonymous with Black folk. So you couldn’t watch Roots, but she used the N-word around you and your siblings?

K.W.: No, she doesn’t say “n—er,” she says “n—a” and says it in front of everybody, every day. She has always said it since I was a little girl. Hell, I thought my name was “n—er” for a long time. We never thought about it being a bad word.

Essence.com: Wow. So she didn’t want you to watch Roots, but she referred to you and your brother with the N-word? Do you think it’s time for her to stop using it?

 K.W.: People should feel free to say what they want to say as long as they don’t use it to hurt other people. I don’t think “n—a” is a bad word. I don’t think it’s directed toward people of color. Now, the word “n—er,” if you call me that, I will kick your a– because now you’re trying to be nasty and hurt my feelings. It depends on how you’re using it.

Essence.com: But do you really think it’s enough of a distinction between the two to make exceptions?

 K.W.: Yes, because back in the day they were saying it with the “er” on the end. I think it’s just like saying Negro, because the word in the dictionary it means “ignorant person.”

Essence.com: Yes, and many people still believe that “ignorant people” equals “Black people.”

K.W.: At the end of the day, you’re the one who is ignorant. I don’t think people should use the word so much. I hate how everyone thinks that Black people are beneath them, even Asians, Whites and …Mexicans. No, I’m not all Black, but I definitely stand up for the Black people. They’ve had it rough, they can’t help the fact that they’re skin is dark, or that their nose is a lil’ wider or that the curls in their hair might be tighter than yours. I don’t think that it’s fair for people who look like me with the light skin, pointy nose and the pretty hair to think that dark-complected people are any less than them. Who am I?

I’m not better than you. I breathe the same air and I bleed the same blood. Nobody is better than anybody else. We are all in this struggle called life. I think brown skin is beautiful because people like me have to lay out in the sun to try and look like you. My best friends are Black—Black-Black—and I think that’s so beautiful. I think that’s why I decided to make my children Black. I could have married a White dude or got with a White man and my kids probably would have looked completely White. That’s not what I wanted. Now, they can go outside and get a for-real tan (laughs). I think Black is beautiful. I stand for the African-American people until the day I die.

 

Chance writes: I met film editor and director Peter R. Hunt in the year 2000; we encountered each other on three or four occasions. He and I talked about the James Bond movies, actors, and other movies. I found him to be friendly and to have a pleasant personality. I really enjoyed talking with him Peter was the film editor of the Sean Connery James Bond Movies and he directed the James Bond movie ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE (1969). He passed away (died) August 14, 2002. 

 Peter Hunt And  Chance Kelsey  

(Peter, Chance, And The James Bond Movies)

 By Chance, Chancellorfiles

    Peter Roger Hunt, Film editor and director  Chance Kelsey:   In the year 2000 I worked at a cleaners in Brentwood, California (Brentwood is a wealthy rich town located in West Los Angeles), and it was there that I met Peter R. Hunt; Peter was a film director and film editor. He worked on the first six James Bond films. Peter had come in to get his clothes many times before but I had never waited on him or spoken to him my co-workers had. One day Peter came in and I got his new clean clothes for him.

He was very friendly and he had a British accent, we talked briefly and he always smiled. Peter came into the cleaners another time to get his clothes, but this time there was another man with him. Peter looked at me and pointed to the man and said, this is my son. His son took the clothes off the rack for Peter, I looked at his son who appeared to be in 40s and said hello he said Hi and smiled. His son had on a white button up shirt and blue jeans. After Peter and I talked briefly Peter and his son left his son carried Peters clothes to the car.        

Another day peter came in again and I got his clothes for him — and this time I asked him about the James Bond movies he had worked upon. He was very friendly and he answered all the questions I asked him about the bond films. I am now going off of memory based upon the conversation that Peter and I had. 

CHANCE KELSEY: You worked on the James bond films.

PETER HUNT: Yes the first six.

CHANCE KELSEY: How was Sean Connery was he a nice person what was he like.

PETER HUNT: Sean Connery was nice and he was easy to work with and a good actor.

CHANCE KELSEY: Who do you think is the greatest James Bond actor Sean Connery, Roger Moore, or George Lazenby?

PETER HUNT: There is only one James Bond and that is Sean Connery.

CHANCE KELSEY: Why do you say Sean Connery and what was it about Sean that made him the best Bond?

PETER HUNT: Sean Connery was a masculine manly type Bond he was serious he was always serious about everything tough and very manly.

CHANCE KELSEY: What type of Bond was Roger Moore?

PETER HUNT: Roger Moore was a humorous playful type Bond. He made you laugh and was not very tough and masculine and always serious like Sean Cannery’s Bond Character. Moore’s Bond character had a joke-ful and humorous personality.

CHANCE KELSEY: What about George Lazenby?

PETER HUNT: I liked George Lazenby’s bond character too the name of the Bond film that Lazenby did was called on Her Majesty’s Secret Service. It was a good Bond film and George was a good actor — but he did not do any more James bond films he only did one.

GEORGE LAZENBY AND A NEGATIVE ATTITUDE

I then asked Peter what happened to George Lazenby how come he only did one James Bond Film.

CHANCE KELSEY: How come George only did one James Bond film.     

PETER HUNT: George was a good actor but he had a bad attitude he was very difficult to work with. He would argue with the directors and producers and others on the movie set around him. He had a bad attitude and a short temper and this caused him to be blacklisted in the movie industry. Producers and Directors who had worked with him put the word out do not work with George because he has a very difficult personality. This is why he never ended up getting many major film roles. If George did not like something he would let it be known to the director, and if he could not get his way he would become angry. But George was a good actor he could have went further in his career if it was not for his difficult personality.         

CHANCE KELSEY: What do you think about the James Bond actors of today?

PETER HUNT: It is not the same the old Bond films were better.

CHANCE KELSEY: What do you think of Timothy Dolton?

PETER HUNT: Timothy Dolton should have never been selected to play James Bond he has no personality. I did not like him as a James Bond.

CHANCE KELSEY: What about Pierce Brosnan?

PETER HUNT: Pierce Brosnan is alright I like his James Bond acting.
Then after we finished talking we said good bye to each other and Peter Left.

I asked Peter did he think that the movie titled American Beauty, deserve to win the Oscars.

CHANCE KELSEY: Did you like the movie American beauty and did you think it deserve to win an Oscar for best picture. 
 

PETER HUNT: American Beauty was not a good movie it should have never won an Oscar for best picture.

PETER AND HIS BROKEN ARM

A few months later Peter came into the cleaners again this time he had his arm wrapped it had been broken. I think it was his left arm I going by memory. So I asked Mr. Hunt what happened to your arm. He said that he had gone on a trip back to London, England and when he arrived at Heathrow airport in London, England he fell and broke his arm at the airport. If I am not mistaken Peter said he fell down at Heathrow airport in London but the fact I am sure of is he did brake his arm in London, England. But if my memory serves me correctly he said he fell down at Heathrow airport in London, and not at some other location in London.

CHANCE KELSEY: Mr. Hunt what happened to your arm.  

PETER HUNT: I was at Heathrow airport in London and I fell down. Then I was taken to the Hospital and there was a nice Doctor at the Hospital who treated me. The Doctor was a Sikh he wore a turban on his head he was such a nice and friendly Doctor.

CHANCE KELSEY: This conversation took place in 2000 and this was the last time I saw Peter R. Hunt and all conversations that I had with Peter hunt took place in 2000. He was so friendly and nice he had a pleasant personality. He was always smiling and he had real white skin sometimes his cheeks would turn reddish because he was blushing. His Cheek bones were kind of high like a Native American Indian or a Chinese. Every time I saw him he always wore a suit but often without a tie.

Peter Liked dark suits and dark paints I remember when he wore a nice gray suit Jacket and gray paints with a dark Powder blue button up shirt it made him look like a man of elegance — it was all him. Shortly after I stop working at the cleaners and I never saw Peter Roger Hunt again.

 

I started working at the cleaners because I had worked as cook for some years – and I wanted to leave the culinary (cooking) field. I wanted to try something new, anything, so I needed a job to hold me over until I found something I could at least stick with for a couple of years — and that’s when I saw a help wanted sign in the window at this cleaners.

 

It was a blessing because I got a chance to meet some nice people who worked for celebrities and met other celebrities Producers, Directors, and entertainers. When I was a cook certain restaurants I worked at had celebrities and it was very fun to see and encounter them.

 

CHANCE KELSEY: I found out that Peter Roger Hunt died two years later on August 14, 2002; he was a very pleasurable and nice person with a friendly personality. I am grateful to have encountered him one year before he died. I feel privileged to have come in contact with him during the last two years of his long life.

 

REST IN PEACE AND MAY THE GREAT CREATOR (GOD) BLESS YOUR SOUL. And thank you for allowing me too have a moment of your attention and feeling comfortable enough in my presence to the point you shared certain information with me based upon questions I asked.
