I’ve already seen For Colored Girls.
I was slightly coerced (pushed!) by my colleagues to accompany fabulous Tell Me More host Michel Martin to a screening the other day.
But I’m thinking, “here we go again.”
The last thing I wanted (or needed) to see was another film that painted the black man as society’s stammering uber-demon, who comes to steal, kill and destroy; or another project that portrays black men as this nation’s perpetual delinquents — jobless, thoughtless sexual misfits who can’t stop screwing long enough to pick our heads up and realize how we’re letting down our women, our children and families, our God and our America.
Hide your kids, hide your wife, and hide your husbands, too … (you know the rest).
