30 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have yet to see this film, but the first comment I saw on here was from a race relations group who profits from the current system of blaming 'the white man' for all that is wrong in the Afro-Caribbean community. It is therefore not surprising that they pull this down for the negative portrayals of the Afro-Caribbean community. I would suggest we all white, black, purple people eaters all watch this and draw our own conclusions about a film made by and starring black people about black people. I also don't see how the first review compared this to a KKK film from the 1920's made by white men for white men. That was a racist film playing on the fear of the white community. This is a film much like the book "Enough" by Juan Williams and the comments made by Bill Cosby asking the black community to take ownership of the problems affecting them.
