Reply to "Boycott Cold Mountain"

Point well taken everyone. This is why I surf the internet instead of watching TV. As far as I am concerned the TV is one way communication. It feeds rather than interact. I got tired of Black people being portrayed negatively back in the Dark days of 1980 till 1984. Keep in mind that Hollywood and the entertainment industry will always show thing from a Caucasian, Eurocentric point of view.

This is one of the challenges that many black film makers have to overcome. Maybe many of the younger people out there can't relate when at one point in the early 80's, when black people virtually disappeared off tv and the movie screen. I hate the fact that black people are minimized and negatively shown. It just feeds the stereotype that many of us have to overcome in the real world.

Knowledge is Power
Ignorance is Oppression
