Though it could be argued that this movie could have better by an X thinking Spike Lee. That argument wouldn't hold much water. This is the movie that sisters should make a girl date to go see. This is the movie that brothers should take their sons and nephews to see. This is the movie that businessmen need to buy tickets for. So that young people should see. This is especially the movie that the alt right conservatives need to see. Because afterwards, if they don't understand why there is a BLM movement, then they are the problem

The real problem is many of us made excuses not to go see it.

I have always said, if we don't support our stories, no one will tell them
