depressing reality of sierra leon and blood diamonds
7 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

the whole point of the hip hop culture, rap, the bling lifestyle is a sort of superhero culture. It's not about the reality of being poor and not being able to make a living, it's about escaping from it. Thats the point of bling.

the point of this movie is to put rappers, some bling makers, and tego calderon, who came from the worst conditions of blood diamond wars back in sierra leon.

I get the feeling the point of this movie is to rub reality in the noses of the rappers.

but like tego calderon says, of the women raped, the amputees, the blood diamonds . . . "It's too much to take." depressing.

I'm not sure the best way to raise awareness for the problem of blood diamonds, but this movie has just too much reality.
