Thinking heavily about the post the brother Khasm13 posted about whitewashing in the latest movie, something hit me on how the subject matter feed to Black people via movies periodically changes. I will start with the 90's and move on up since those are the times I am most familiar with. During the early-mid 90's, my teenage years saw movies geared towards the "in hood" life. From the mid 90's to late 90's, the focus switched to buffoonery comedies. 2000's onward, we have the dysfunctional Black male/Black female relationship, separate male and female camaraderie, struggling and painful trauma and interracial relationship movies. This is just my perspective so I am not saying I am right, but has anyone else seen "trends" like this in the movies supposedly made for us? If so, what "trends" have you seen?
