Ritz-Carlton to raise money for the child cancer charity Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation on Friday.

The Hustle and Flow actor told to The Washington Times Green & Glover, “I don’t think President Obama has been that revolutionary in reaching out to ethnic communities. President Reagan did a lot for the black community that people don’t realize.”

And if she doesn’t make the adjustment to baby wipes, I’ll know she’s not completely clean.”
