A show shine boy loves to listen to the horn more than anything. As such, he places a deposit for a bugle from a second hand shop, he needing to come up with an additional $2 to get the bugle, which he knows he will never get unless he comes up with the money before the store closes at the end of the day. As he hustles for business at a bar to raise that $2, the boy comes across two talent agents, Garry Goff and Lucky, who, on a lark, ask the boy to play the trumpet belonging to the bar's band's trumpet player. That incident promises to change the boy's life, but he may have other more pressing issues on his mind for just wanting the $2 to buy that second hand bugle. Written by
Example of Hollywood producers obsession to humiliate the Black male
Yet another sad example of how far the Hollywood executives go to make Black males look stupid, without basic knowledge or understanding about life, in other words, the low of the low in society. They seemed determined to convince average hardworking Americans that Black males really are totally different and more inferior than every other race of American male, therefore no guilt should be felt for any treatment past, present or future is put upon them. Look at the attention given to Snoop Dog, Jay-Z and 50 cent compared to educated articulate Black males who are primarily ignored by the mass media. And yes, Black Entertainment Television is owned by Viacom. Thank God the Canadian and European movie producers of the same period and today treat Black males equally and do not seem to hold this bias.
