Kenya McQueen is a successful African-American CPA, working her way to the top of the corporate ladder -- but her life has become all work and no play. Urged on by her friends to try something new and to let go of her dream of the "ideal black man," she accepts a blind date with an architectural landscaper named Brian, only to cut the date short upon first sight, because Brian is white. The two meet again at a party, and Kenya hires Brian to landscape her new home. Over time, they hit it off, but Kenya's reservations about the acceptance their romance will find among her friends and family threatens everything. An intelligent romantic comedy that chooses to deal with issues of race and perception in a straight-forward way, from a point of view not often seen: that of a successful, upper-class black woman.

I saw the movie on Saturday night and will see it again on Thursday.This is a much needed topic.I date outside my race(Black American)and find that White males are usually more respectful and complimentary of my looks and talents than black males.It does seem that too many Black males care about superficial things such as skin tone and hair length.Those things don't seem to matter with non black guys,who from my experience believe pretty is pretty no matter what the color.It bothers me that Black women are the most unmarried women in the country;yet we close ourselves to dating outside our race.Black males do not share this sentiment and date anything they want to;so why shouldn't we? I think we downplay and don't truly realize our own beauty because of negative depictions of black women in music videos or television shows.Its sad because we are beautiful the way God made us whether its with short hair,dark skin,thick figures or a stick figure.
