  88. miss l Says:

    I understand for Russell its business but I don’t think its wrong for him to point out that when the goverments aren’t corrupt the natural resources (in this case diamonds) can be used to benefit the ppl. Its more about the goverments than the diamonds. And I’m guessing “that’s why Nelson Mandela sent a message to Warner Bros. reminding them that Africans are DEPENDING on diamonds to rebuild their countries.”

    Akon owns a diamond co. and is using the money to open schools etc in his home town. Not all diamonds are “blood diamonds” and for some ill informed this movie might continue to misinform so its good some ppl are showing another side to the story.

    Blood Diamonds is a mandatory watch! Go & check that out!

    Russell is definately thinking on the business side of matters. I see his point whole heartedly about the drastic change that has taken place in Africa since the Kimberley Act. Ed Zwick heart is in the right place. I’m sure he is traumatized by the aftermath of war torn countries, amputated children, and haunting stories of the senseless violence that killed so many who never even seen a diamond in their life. But… The diamond industry does in fact provide the tools and means for millions in Africa to develope well organized communities. That movie is based on the truths that existed in the 90′s pre-the Kimberley act (which many countries denounced the purchase of diamonds from conflict zones). Now, you can go to some of those same places and see roads, better home, schools, & jobs that help these people maintain in a civilized society.
    I’ve worked in the diamond Industry, & the 1 thing that everyone should know about purchasing diamonds is “Where did my Diamonds come from”?
    Ask questions (especially to private jewelers) You don’t want blood on your hands…literally.

  105. STEELZKITCHEN Says:

    THAT BLOCK SAVVY SHIT IS THE WORST..LOL

  106. diplomatic Says:

    If you’re going to buy diamonds i don’t know why you wouldn’t buy mand made ones. they’re the exact same thing and made the same way, compressing carbon dioxide. only one take millions of years to make and is dug up by shady ppl doing shady things, and the other is made in a lab but some science geeks. plus their generally 1/1oth the price of naturally formed diamonds. so save your money and you conscience and get some man made diamond for that grill of yours
