The majority of movies produced and directed by blacks does nothing but disrespect and insult blacks. That premise is busted. So why is Spike Lee the lone villain? Did Spike say something unfavorable about ‘the lord and Savior’ in the White House? It's disappointing to see Dick Gregory go off on a unsubstantiated tirade like this. And it’s even more disturbing to see how easily black people can be manipulated over fictional shit. Django is a freaking movie. A remake. The original movie...

Yes, "The Angry Black Woman" is a stereotype and the only reason that it is even being mentioned in the same sentence with the name Michelle Obama, is because she happens to be a Black woman.
