Blaxploitation... minstrel show?
You've got to give your peers more credit than that. Do you feel that the we are that dense, that we wouldn't be able to detect if we were being exploited? We entertain ourselves first; our entertainment is energetic and magnetic.
If you don't see the minstrelsy then at the very least you are definately that dense. About the Blaxploitation...you are right. Blaxploitation isn't as bad as some of these mindless music videos.
I give my peers THAT DON"T SELL OUT OUR PEOPLE AND OUR STRUGGLE major credit. Not those helping to imternationalize the the image of African males born in Amerikkka as oversexed fools that throw away all their money on diamonds stolen from Africa and cars.
Jesus star....How spiritual is any of this stuff? I thought you were practicing a "higher" form of spirituality than the rest of us? How can you defend this stuff that manifests our "lower animal nature"?...lol
