I thought this movie was beyond silly... and I'm sorry, but I don't see the 'emasculated black man' thing. I understand the concept but I'm not sure I buy into it. We have to deal with far more overt manifestations of racism than those found in a movie. It's just a movie, folks.... Be that as it may, on with my review: The actors were fine -- I'm a fan of both Naomi Watts and Jack Black. But the film was wayyy over the top.

I read the Coldest Winter Ever and didn't find it as profound as a lot of people make it out to be. It is an interesting read and Souljah makes some good points that promote interesting discussion, but before I read the book it was presented to me like: "Gurl, you have to read this. This is the best book I ever read. This book is deep. I think it should be required reading for all young Black women." Maybe it's just that I heard too much of the hype before actually reading the book and that...

My Take on part two..in bold http://www.sptimes.com/2004/10/02/Floridian/More_responses_to__Do.shtml Andre King Great article on the status of black man/woman relationships. I don't think that that is the end of the black man's opinion on this, however. Even though there were a variety of opinions on the subject, most of them seemed little more than simple preferences. And that is what I think all of this boils down to. If I were to date a woman of another race, I would date her because I...

"Love" is a man made concept that has endured not because it works the majority of the time but because it gives everyone a "warm and fuzzy" feeling. It has its place but it does not have the strength to be the bedrock of a relationship. All those who bring out "love is the cornerstone of my happy relationship" tend to be economically stable, fairly rational, and always tout communication and working as partners. Love is pretty much a fringe benefit. Ask anyone who stays in a bad...

Sigh..... I don't agree with this..... Being in a relationship with a person you don't love is torture.... and painful to a degree that is unimaginable.... your soul begans to rot away slowly... and the relationship begans to feel like poison....... Having no love in a bond like marriage feels like being weighted down with an anchor and released periodically.... drowning but never dying..... I wish this on no one..... Peace, Virtue

You can still have love, but that should not be the foundation that the relationship is standing on. The concept of love just does'nt have the muscle to carry the weight. Plus mutual respect (garnered from both people fullfilling thier educational, employment, and other goals)has proven to be way more effective. Relationships (in my view) should be processed as K=f(x); K= Relationships f=function x= all variables that will ensure a successful and rewarding partnership. After all, in the end...

That's all the more reason why Whites should never complain about Black people... They should be glad that they don't have a Nat Turner around every corner. It's amazing that they can even fix their mouths to be upset with Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson or Farrakhan, etc. I definitely understand the feeling... don't know if those are my exact thoughts... but I do know that viewing those types of pictures wouldn't make for a *healthy* "multi-cultural" event!

A quick follow up: 1. Creation does not need to be ex nihilo, i.e., it does not negate continuity. As I use it, it does mean, however, that a metamorphisis does take place once the African goes through the Middle Passage and lands on this continent. There is continuity, but it is fractured and fragmented. Thus African peoples in the United States, though informed by their history, also create and adapt to their new situation. 2.
