White and Black Does Not Make Black.
6 August 2000 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I loved the movie, I thought it had a few funny scenes. It was a good decent movie that you can watch with your parents. Karen played Nia well, and I liked the guy that lived under her, though he did not have many parts. I did have a problem with one thing, A white parent, and a black parent, cannot make a black child! I am Irish and black, and I have straight red hair, green eyes, and snow-white skin, but I do not go around saying that I'm just "Irish", I say that I am Irish and Black, because that is what I am, even if I look only white.
