"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."

If that's what's really relevant, to him, then why is he not addressing that? I guess he's seeking to "address" his personal economic state without regard to any broader community impact! downT

He lives a very sheltered life if all he understands of black culture is what is portrayed in Soul Plane.

Sorry. There is Black Enterprise and Essence and "O" as well as XXL and The Source etc. I f there was a black-owned major airline I imagine that it would be quite similar to others that it would compete with.
No shit Vox..........I hear ya...to even come in here with that dumb schit is asinine.....I do not need a black spokesperson to describe who in the hell I am.....that is my call....by the way...i've only eaten greens once in my life.....don't like em.....and i'm black as they come...so now what?......I think that is the whole purpose of the media as presented by racist whites, buffoon blacks and the loyalists who defend them....is to normalize ignorance and demeaning stereotypes as black culture in order to strip away the high aspirations of many and make them comfortable with a dumbed-down version of themselves..........well it "ain't" working across the board....i can tell that by the dialogue of the progressive brothers and sisters in here....you know who you are......we agree on everything...coincidental as hell huh? Big Grin
Whew!!!!

I was afraid there would be a argument mounted to defend that garbage.

Thanks for making me drastically wrong.

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the trailer for this movie.

This is 'Hip-Hop'?

I hope not.

Was that a 'rap.'?

Walter Latham is clearly a hustler of buffoonery. That's okay. Buffoonery is a part of comedy. But don't pass buffoonery off as the base character of a people.

Limbaugh will like this guy.

Just watch.

PEACE
