    And, in my case, I'm not all that sure what most (if not all) of you expect, i. e., from what are meant to be marketed for mass consumption, not meant to 'uplift the race', to begin with!

    fyi

    Also personally: I do make a clear distinction, i. e., between movies that merely entertain me, as opposed to those that inspire me, too...

    fyi

    Being that the past era was plagued by even black men in drag, why does the very notion of black gays come as a bit of a shock, etc.?

    The flip side: Something else the one time black talk show host considered a means to her ends as well...

    I. e., even the likes of Martin Lawrence revealed how far they did go, to market to a white audience, etc.

    As in, from white tv stars to major movie actors, another minority to poke fun at, but ole have times change, even if we're the last to know...

    I don't mean to make another speech, but the very idea of a black man in drag playing a 'big bad momma' (Tyler Perry) is the worse insult anybody could or can make on our collective intelligence...

    Do read between the lines, and let nobody else play you so cheap or real close, posters...

    FYI

    Nothing is quite that obvious to most if not all of our relations:

    Such is why I started this thread...

    FYI

    I. e., most (if not all) fail to recognize our peoples impact on everybody else, too...

    Contrast that with alleged young 'comics' dissing what was one of their role models here too...
