    trailer for "the blind side"





    I say "no thanks" to this movie playing out the rehashed "white savior" theme.....I don't care if it's "based on a true story"..........this crap makes me sick to my stomach.

    The youtube doesn't work, but these folks are on the case and have a documentary expressing your/our outrage.

    Please realize that since Birth of a Nation, this has been Hollywood's job and mission,
    the sad thing is we have not pursued ours in defense.

    After Spike made Malcolm X, that was the opportunity for Black millionaires in sports and hip hop to support young brothers and sisters with positive stories they have written for the screen.

    How long ago was Panther? 15 years?

    i couldn't help but to chuckle at certain parts either, because they were that bad...

    Little White Boy: "Oh mom look at what I found at school today!!!.....CAN WE KEEP EM!!!!"

    Sandra Bullock: "That big dumb black boy is MY SON!...now go and play some football honey!!!"

    throw this movie in the trash with Radio, Dangerous Minds, and Freedom Writers..............

    The point is out of our 800 billion we should be throwing a counterbalance up on the screen to shelter those who don't know any better from this form of
    fascist propaganda,

    who had the bigger Black audience, Soul Plane, or Drop Squad?

    We still have a lot of work o do
