"Why are black people so insecure?" said Walter Latham, the creator behind the successful "The Original Kings of Comedy" tour and film that featured Cedric the Entertainer, Bernie Mac, D.L. Hughley and Steve Harvey.
Latham, who is developing other comedy tours, TV and film projects, added: "We put so much energy into criticizing films like this instead of addressing what's really relevant, such as our economic state. Black people should accept the fact that our heritage is different, and we should embrace who we are as a people. If there was a black airline, they probably would serve ribs and collard greens. That's who we are."
