It’s Friday, and we’re just going relax our minds and luxuriate in this week’s loved-up, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. 

I give several reasons, both pop-cultural and profane, as to why we dig Dwayne over at the R. And I can lay out a few more reasons here, like:

* he’s probably one of the more fun action stars to swing through the pop-culture landscape in a minute. 

* he believes in helping build his communities and managing wealth.

* he’s got a bachelor’s degree in physiology and criminology.

* he did a few eps of Star Trek: Voyager (not a fan of the show, but enjoyed the idea of his being on there).

* his mom and his maternal grandmom kick ass.

And then…okay, let me spool the story: I attended an event last night celebrating the third anniversary for Black Girls Run. I met Racialicious fan Chyann Sapp and her cohorts Jaylene Clark and Hollis Heath, who are the creative team behind Renaissance In The Belly Of A Killer Whale, a multimedia project about gentrification in Harlem. I said I couldn’t stay too long because I had to write up the Crush post. Chyann was dying to know who it was to be. When I replied Johnson, they all fell silent and shook their heads. 

"That is a handsome man," Chyann said.

'Nuff said.

    He is good looking, but he’s way more attractive to me as The Rock than as Mr. Kiddie Movie Actor.

    Yep! He went to college on a full football scholarship, but didn’t play long because of an injury.
