    Why are you so angry about this movie? Y'all ain't know that we used to do the work of Mexicans back in the day? Or have you conveniently forgotten?

    I just saw the commercial a little while ago, and a question immediately came to mind.
    That is, I havn't seen a movie with an significant number of blacks in it in a month of Sundays, and the first one that comes around is called "The Help" about black housekeepers?

    I feel and think Ice Cube makes better flicks...

    His flciks tend to be more respectful as he reveals how confusing and dumbfound today's world is to many our relations...

    And no black guys in dresses in his flicks!

    Spike has his chance...

    Now it's somebody else's...

    FYI....

    Some days when I get home I tell my children to put something on with black people in it. I really don't think this is one I would be interested in seeing. If I go back in the day, I prefer stuff like the Tuskegee airmen, the Jackie Robinson story, or the one about Booker t Washington called "Booker " last night I watched one called "future brother " about a young bro from Detroit who didn't care about school or history. He got hit by a car and woke up back in slavery time. (In a dream)
