Mannnnnnnnnnn ..... you are SO right about THAT, Ms. Koco!!!

 

And it's not JUST about (Black) movies or stories about us that Black folks don't/won't support each other in ..... I'm still trying to think of a subject matter where we are willing to "come together for each other" .... and support something that has to do with - and is good for - us. 

 

You let some tacky-ass, bleeped-out, scandalous, back-stabbing, 'baffoonis'h-type "reality show" come on TV and Blackfolks will get speeding tickets and knock each other down to be in front of the tube to watch it!!!  But a good, historic, enlightening story about iconic Black achievement, bravery or greatness?? 

 

They'd rather have their wisdom teeth pulled out with a pair of rusty pliers. 

 

We will NEVER get our stories told if we wait about for Black people to tell 'em.  It may have taken a White man 25 years and his OWN money to produce thisBLACK film.  But at least SOMEBODY did it!!  When a whole lot of other "somebodys" DID NOT!!!
