http://www.misterthewriter.com/white-people-got-the-writing-about-black-people-game-on-lock/ let’s talk about ‘Straight Out of Compton’, a film that cost an estimated $28 million to make and has since raked in more than $200 million. In case you have been under a rock, N.W.A is an 80’s collective of rappers who opted for black jeans, black hoodies and black winter hats in the dead of baby African summers. They made songs that highlighted the comings and goings of *******, tricks, gangsters, and hoes all the while encouraging the masses to raise their middle fingers at unscrupulous members of law enforcement. They were black for no reason black. Jheri curls dripping down foreheads while flipping through Ebony Magazine black. Red Kool-Aid in a mayonnaise jar black. Hit it from the back in black church socks and hard bottom gator shoes black. MC Hammer once danced hard in a Kentucky Fried Chicken commercial and that moment was still not blacker than the authentic inner-city rage of ‘****** With Attitudes’. So I’m perplexed on the highest level that the film about their rise to fame, produced by two of its members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre among others—and directed by the wonderfully talented F. Gary Gray (‘The Negotiator’, ‘Set it Off’, ‘Friday’) was written by writers who are whiter than the walls of Joan Rivers’ ghost vagina.
