"What grade would you give 2015 Black films?"


  

          

I only saw Dope and Straight Outta Compton. I only went to about twelve movies last year. My grade would be a D. I'm including movies with black folk in co starring roles too just any kind of representation. I compare it to the NBA, if white folks boycotted because there's not enough whites playing.

Wasn't Selma 2014. Took my Moms to the theater to see it . It was good but nothing I'm gonna be watching over and over. That's where I'm at with most black films I'm always saying hey I can watch this with my mom. The Butler moms, 12 years A Slave took moms, Selma took Moms, Get On Up took moms.

The NBA wants you simply because you're good.
Oscars have a racist history of choosing people based on race...
not to mention, the NBA had the same history until they realized
Black folk were just better players lol... you don't get chosen to
be in the NBA soley because you're Black, you get chosen in SPITE of
it due to your exceptional skills. The Oscars still shut you out on
the basis of you being Black.
