Dwayne Johnson Poses On Top of the World for 'Ebony' Cover!

Dwayne Johnson Poses On Top of the World for 'Ebony' Cover!

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson‘s muscles bulge out of his sweater on the cover of Ebony‘s December 2017/January 2018 issue.

The 45-year-old actor, whose movie Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle hits theaters in December, posed on top of the Shangri-La Hotel in Vancouver while in town shooting his upcoming movie Rampage.

The shoot features photos by Gavin Bond, creative direction by Courtney Walter, an interview by Alicia Quarles, and production by Bianca Grey. Here is what Dwayne shared about black power:

“Black power means influence, identity and respect. The influence part is the ability to influence people in a powerful way. We are finding that out now. Sometimes the loudest voice isn’t necessarily the most influential, but the most positive action is. The other one would be identity. It is invaluable to have a real sense of identity and to know who you are and where you came from and to understand your roots. It lets you move forward in life in a positive way. It’s connected to the most powerful thing. The most powerful thing you can be is yourself,” he said.

“Black power is respect,” he continued. “It’s something we all crave. Respect is given when it’s earned. To me, respect is earned through positive actions. For example, the protests we are seeing with our football players, our athletes. Some view it as a sign of disrespect. I view it as a sign of craving respect. It’s a cry for respect, a call for action to our leaders who have that positive, powerful influence.

    I like Dwayne Johnson, he hasn’t really been given the credit he deserves as an actor. Maybe the roles are too action based, but I actually think he’s got a side to him that is very different than what we are used to seeing from him. Maybe the right project hasn’t landed in his lap yet; but you got glimpses in San Andrea’s.

    We wage wars easier than we repair preaches and build walls instead of building bridges. We loot, ruin and pillage this whole world and call it democracy. We lie to ourselves and the world when we claim we lead in anything when we cant even provide clean water to our own people. While we reign with terror all over the globe. The fact that good people can relate to foreign struggles like the plight of Palestinians and Visa versa so easily; proves that this is a global struggle against a system that collaborates with repression, despots and demagoguery. That for generations has only ever brought misery and torment for millions while a few get to flourish in a bubble of false utopia.

    Walk in the shoes of your outcast neighbor, that you were told was so and so and the state of their house is their own fault. Yet if you visit them, on your own terms and on your own, you will find things you did not know, that you yourself can relate to and things you yourself would never accept happening to you. Respect and DIGNITY are earned, you have to fight for both to earn them.

    Dwayne is right and I wish he had shared more, or had more to say.

    We now more than ever need good people to step up. Not back down or cross picket lines to accomidate the rot or worse, contribute to masking it. In all political, and personal fields, foreign and domestic, we need GOOD PEOPLE. All of what we have been enduring and tolerating has to stop. Haven’t we given the war mongers, profiteers and the workers of iniquity enough of our time, of our lives? To ruin and condemn millions upon millions of lives right here at home and abroad?

    It time for good people to rise and arrive.
