Ok, maybe Posse can't compare to other popular cowboy/western movies. But
that's because it didn't have the FUNDING those movies had. Obviously,
whenever you want to produce a story such as this one, focusing on African
American historical involvement (and NO, servants and 'mammies' are not
historical involvement), Hollywood isn't going to be too supportive. And
believe me they weren't. The producers and actors sacrificed a lot of 'out
of pocket' expenses to make "Posse", just so that the story could be told.
I think that alone is commendable. Posse may not be Oscar material (and
they don't like Black media too much either), but it is a start. It is
entertaining, and it introduces us to the black cowboy, a character most of
us are unfamiliar with.
