    Excellent question NNQ. We can presume but we'll never really know. As the "Minister of Defense" he was dead serious in he and Bobby Seals goal to bring us into the new era of Black American awareness and to seize the time and take what was rightfully ours by force if necessary since years of negotiation by the existing cadre of Black civil rights leaders was about as effective as walking into pool of quicksand and holding out our hands to our oppressors for help. He also loved our future and cared very much for their safety, care and feeding by any means necessary. I would therefore guess that he would laud our people who made it for what it is. Not so much as a feel good escape from reality that the "Other Man" wishes it were that simplistic but a film depicting our forward progress if #1 We'd stop trusting outsiders that mean us great harm and #2 Stop killing each other and form a common defense against those who continue to kill us with impunity.

    Man, just listening to both of those cars when they were idling would make a girls heart race. Standing near them you could feel the ground vibrating. You could hear them a block away. And some people think the movie franchise, "The Fast and the Furious" invented street racing...not by a long shot. LOL

    Ah, Bro. SOA, I am truly humbled by your thoughts of me. Thank you. I have this insatiable need to learn and try to understand. When I was younger, I read a lot of books. As I get older, I talk more to people. I find that people, no matter whether they have letters behind their names, or fancy titles, can teach you so much valuable information about life and more importantly, themselves. As a kid, my mother would see me staring at people and tell me to stop and I would look away thinking as though that was a rude thing to do. But I was fascinated by people, still am. What I was actually doing was trying to learn about them without actually talking to them, trying to interpret their moods or to figure out their life story. I've always been curious about what people know, how they know it, and what they think about what they know. I love to process information and am not afraid to change the way I think when new information arrives or that I'm more open at a given moment in time to actively listen and understand of it. That's one of the main reasons I come here, to Destee...to learn more. I want to see how different or similar we are. I have my favorite storytellers here. Some, like you, post every day and some, every now and then. Some write paragraphs and some, one liners, but what I find is, without fail, whenever my favorites post, there are "gems" in every message. All of us are contributing to a repository of information that is priceless, in my opinion. I can't say enough, how grateful I am to be a part of this family.

    "Car Wash", I loved the movie and the soundtrack. The remake, "The Wash" was a good effort, but not as good as the original, in my opinion, except when my boy at that toxic burrito from the food truck. :running::danger::flamethrower::explode::gas:

    Bro. SOA, you are truly demonstrating how Black people in America are going backwards in the entertainment/story telling industry. The number of movies that were produced about us and with us starring in them...what the heck happened? And did you see the young Laurence Fishburne in "Cornbread, Earl and Me"? I was really sad when he and Gina Torres split. I never knew he had started his acting career so young. You are adding movies here that I have never heard of and some that I have, show that our struggle continues. There's a lot that can said about wishing that we could bring back the old days. And this is why "Black Panther" the movie was the largest grossing movie of all time?

    Well NNQ not that you don't already know this but as far our take in the big screen profession It should improve with "Black Panther" being the catalyst to spring us forward in a billion dollar industry. We've done it once and we can do it again. EVER FORWARD!!!!!!

    The political, spiritual and progressive leaders of our race sometimes cuts our collective noses off to spite the "Other Mans" face. The NAACP did this with the "Amos & Andy" TV series thus rendering every Black actor in that series unemployed. I call this an act of the 4th sin: Pride. Irregardless of why the Hollywood moguls elected to give us Blacks in America some manner of pride and false hope for our future or maybe it was a nothing more then a conspiracy with the DOJ to placate us after the tumultuous 60's where we almost burned Amerikkka to the ground to demand a decent standard of living as we so rightfully deserved since we helped build this land for the most part free and eventually to this day for a mere pittance. Read "Animal Farm" It's all in there. The mindset of the pigs can be aptly applied to other ethnic cleansing edicts such as the Jewish and Polish Holocaust. I have no idea and don't care to know who but we as a marginalized race seeking emotional comfort carried the "Blaxploitation" banner as some macho badge of courage and fear which worked for a while only as an illusion while the Hollywood producers skimmed 99% of the up front profits from the signed contracts and 100% from the back end residuals. If a great many of our entertainment potentials would have followed the leads of Spike Lee and Tyler Perry who took great financial risk, especially Spike Lee staked every dime he had with the help of AMEX got his investment back in spades because he was a genius in his own right. Tyler Perry crafted a style that Flip Wilson was handed a few dollars and a pat on the head for. Flip Wilson like Lincoln Theodore Monroe Andrew Perry had to degrade himself to pave the way for the next generation of Black entertainers to demean themselves much less in film or stage for far more pay. Mr. StepinFetchit named by Boss man as "The laziest man in the world" was the first ever Black comedian to gross one million dollars throughout his acting career. That was virtually unheard of for a Black actor in the 1900's. The "Other Man" tried his best to blast "Black Panthers" success but sometimes the firestorm of hate and jealousy blows back into the face of the arsonist and now they bleat that it's success was an anomaly. I'd be less then forthcoming if I said we have slid back into obscurity after the "Blaxploitation" era but we never had a foot up then but we can revel in "Black Panther" with the hopes that our well heeled Black entertainment and investment folk will seek to invest in more of what we need, quality entertainment that we finance, control and wholly profit from.

    Laurence Fishburne was always one of my top 5 favorite actors. The first I was aware of his natural acting abilities was in Apocalypse Now. I think I posted a comment about him somewhere here. Gina Torres never struck me as much of a dynamic actress as her dedicated and loyal hubby Laurence. It's interesting when you mentioned their split, I heard rumors of their impending divorce and both their publicist stated that the Suits TV series was going to relocate to Canada to offset the cost of union support staff and that was going to strain their committed marriage since 2002. Come to find out in 2016 ole Gina has been in the arms, mind and quite sure the bed of Utah entrepreneur Kevin Wright for over a year before I guess Laurence just had enough of the public humiliation and was decent enough to allow her to break the sad news in 2017 of his divorcing her not because she was a cheater and fornicator but to say he was regrettably dissolving their long standing marriage due to irreconcilable differences. Unless there's something we all know nothing about, swirl or no swirl that was indecent of Gina.
