People are tired of hearing the black thing and all, but it’s things like this that make people pull the race card. Cuz you best believe that if this movie was white (or hell, even Hispanic or Jewish) and the actresses were M. Streep, N. Kidman, C. Blanchett or K. Winslet, just to name a few, this movie would have ruled at the Academy Awards. But now, all that this movie will ever be is a “black movie”.
I have so much respect for Tyler Perry. That man, he is doing great things. Not only is he the first black man to own his own studios, but I feel like he has taken the phenomenon of “black movies” to a higher level. You and I both know that as much as we enjoy them, in general our movies tend to lack quality. The biggest problem IMO is sound editing. The first movie that comes to mind is Obsessed. I hate to call out Beyoncé, but like I said, I gotta keep it 100. Beyoncé girl, you got money, you could’ve hired some real talent to do that mixing for you. The music and sound editing in that movie was just horrendous. Songs would just start playing really loud out of the blue, and songs that didn’t fit the scene. And of course she had to throw in a couple of her own songs, which I understand, but the way they did it was not cute. Sorry boo, but you failed on that one.
In the end it doesn’t matter. It’s like a battle which we will always be fightin’. Honestly, I’m not the second coming of MLK or anything, but sometimes you just have to speak up, you know. People think that racism is gone and ish, but it’s not. And it’s alive in the ignorance of people who don’t even realize what they’re saying sometimes (I was gonna give you an example about this girl in my class, but I still have to make class projects with her, and I really don’t feel like having drama, so I won’t. Maybe next year, when I’m done working with her hahahaha).
