Reply to "Hustle and flow"

IMO, the movie looks and sounds like more of the usual junk. Yet another pimp/drug dealer/hustler/degenerate who *gasp!* also wants to sign up for the Rap Minstrel Show and tap dance for Massa. Aren't we tired of seeing this crap yet? Aren't we tired of financially supporting these buffoonish messages? Aren't Ice-T, 50 Cent, and the rest of them already doing this in real life and supplying us with all the gory details in documentaries and songs? Don't we want our children to see a more accurate and dignified representation of us on screen? Man, Malcolm and Martin are tired from all the spinning in their graves. Even Terrence Howard is embarassed by this filth. I posted an interview he did with Africana about the movie and the brotha couldn't even bring himself to admit he played a pimp. He was ashamed. And rightfully so.

We talk all this talk about how Massa is putting out these harmful messages about Black people and only putting money behind the most backward/buffonish entertainment, and at the very same time we can't run down to the Cineplex fast enough to catch the latest piece of steaming hot garbage he's promoting. If it wasn't so sad, it would be funny. The only way to stop the proliferation of this junk is to stop supporting it with our hard-earned cash.
