Though it could be argued that this movie could have better by an X thinking Spike Lee. That argument wouldn't hold much water. This is the movie that sisters should make a girl date to go see. This is the movie that brothers should take their sons and nephews to see. This is the movie that businessmen need to buy tickets for. So that young people should see. This is especially the movie that the alt right conservatives need to see. Because afterwards, if they don't understand why there is a BLM movement, then they are the problem

Correct, resulting in this ... not that we care about Hollywood's appetite :facepalm:



Why ‘Detroit’ Flopping At The Box Office, Signals A Dent In Hollywood’s Appetite For Black Movies of Shame

The numbers are in and unfortunately despite best laid plans and the projection for a more than decent opening at the box office — Kathryn Bigelow’s much-hyped and picked apart movie about the Detroit riots of 1967 — aptly titled Detroit — barely registered with theater goers across the country ...

The real problem is many of us made excuses not to go see it.

I have always said, if we don't support our stories, no one will tell them

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
