Black History Month

Bamboozled.JPG (76 KB)

An African American television writer [Damon Wayans] is criticized one too many times by his white ‘not racist boss [Michael Rapaport] for not being street enough. As a way to get back at his condescending boss, he proposes a modern day minstrel show, complete with black actors in black face. Amazingly, the show not only is approved by the executives, but becomes a nation-wide success leading to legions of fans running around the streets in black face. As you could guess, things could only go downhill from there

    I still have yet to watch the whole movie. Sad thing is that a lot of black people either fall in the category of living up to the stereotypes placed upon them YEARS ago, or being over-sensitive when it comes to jokes concerning their race; sometimes they’ll jump the gun, no pun intended: see Sean Delonas.

    I haven’t seen the movie. But you point about the stereotyping and overly-sensitive people are so true. You could apply this statement to any race. Stereotypes exist because it seems that large groups of people from all races have a sick compultion to make idiots out of themselves, knowingly or unknowingly.

    @Fish:
    Stereotypes exist because they are, to a certain point, true.

    These may have been some of the stupidest comments I’ve come across (excluding dieA), unless you’re all rednecks and fulfilling your own stereotypes.

    Totally missed this post…

    I saw it. It’s fucking great until about 2/3 of the way through, when –like many Spike Lee flicks– it starts to fly off the rails into overwrought melodramatic bullshit. Still, it’s worth a torrent or even a rental.

    At my old movie-theater job the manager had this poster hanging in his office. And yes, he was white. Went over real big when he interviewed local black kids for jobs…

    Looks like a USDA poster to promote the sale of watermelons via food stamps.
