Okay, I will play devil's advocate. Let me start with this disclaimer: I know that they portray us a certain way in the media to brainwash people. That being said, I get what you are saying, but a similar movie comes to mind, Ocean's 12. You had Bernie Mac and Don Cheadle playing characters that were a part of the group, not trying to get over. There are tons of movies where white people are getting over, such as: Casino, Godfather, The Italian Job, Batman, Iron Man etc. A movie comes out where a black dude is less than honorable, and we analyze as if that portrays who we are, or what people perceive us to be. We should make more movies about us and by us, but guess what...we will still complain. A good example is Tyler Perry, he made all types of movies and the men have good and bad roles, the women have good and bad roles, because that is life. I feel what this post is about has good information, but this is where I become ...what's the word I am looking for...unsure. Do I not like it just because a black man is portrayed in a bad light, or do I really feel as if there is an underlying motive? I honestly don't know, and before someone jumps all over me and says that I love white people, that is not what I am saying. I am just trying not to become a bitter person, I want to understand the condition we are in as a people without becoming an angry person that carries it in their heart at all times. I love movies, I love when a movie portrays what I feel inside in a way that is unconventional and truthful, but now I am careful of what I watch, but when has it become too much, when am I just being paranoid? Am I just being paranoid? Sometimes I say yes, and sometimes I say no.
