I'm broke, goin to school and I don't have my own family but I do help my mother out. I don't need to pay $10.00 to have the same situation mirrored back at me.

Being broke, going to school, marrying...etc. are not conditions exclusive to black people. In my office we have broke white people, broke spanish people and even a broke asian. We also have other adult learners with children that attend college (I work for Stony Brook University Hospital so there are a lot of college students).

Bottom line its just a movie. I would rather see rich black folks in the screen than I don't know a movie like State Property. Now I'm not saying I never want to see poor people on screen, I'm saying I don't want them to act like fools.
