The death of politics in African-American films!!
29 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

This movie is a classic!!! It's so honest, funny, and realistic.

Whenever African-Americans attempt to succeed and enhance our economic statuses, we are always accused of "selling-out" or becoming white. However if you are true to yourself and to those who love you, then you can accomplish anything. As Malcolm X said, "A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything." If you don't believe in yourself, how can you expect others to? It's a shame that many current A.A. films neglect political and social issues such as the ones Dexter Jackson faced in this film. Job well done to director Michael Schultz & writer William Mosley-Payne for this movie. I truly love it!!!!
