Vivica A. Fox,
A young medical student finds himself entrenched in a web of intrigue when he's sent to care for the former US Ambassador to Syria. Christopher Cousins, Vivica A. Fox and Missi Pyle co-star in Loomis' thrilling drama.
The film takes place in a small town where 72 % of the people who live there are Black, 10 % are Hispanic, 4 % are Asian and the remaining residents are primarily White. While this is the make up of those who live there, with the exception of a few black officers the local police force is predominately white. But sadly, and as is the case in many communities of color, nearly all of those who have been shot and killed by the police are unarmed minority men, women and now more than ever young children, most of whom posed little or no real threat to the officers. While simultaneously dealing with the fact that his grandmother is suffering from dementia and more and more of these cop shootings, 12 year old Jason Mckey whose character is played by new comer Jamol Manigault, looks to his uncle for help, his uncle then seeks to acquire the services of Always Best to assist with the in home Care and comforting of the woman Jason affectionately calls Mom Mom. After a young boy with whom he ...Written by
The dishonesty in this "film" is without equal in modern filmmaking. Its not surprising, given the intended audience. The material must be intended for children?, I can't imagine an adult with an IQ above 75 would buy the into lies, and half-truths, its that stupid.
If this is this is the sort of material that informs the black community, we are in for bad times.
For the record, we again need to bring up the statistics on race and crime in America. The narrative that police target and kill young black men without cause is based on fallacies and bold faced LIES. The stats tell us that only about 2% of black men murdered in our inner-cities are killed by police. This would seem to be an inconvenient truth for the makers of this film.
The stats also tell us that more white people are killed by police than black people. The key statistic is that blacks are killed by police in direct proportion to their interactions with law enforcement. In other words, black criminqaltiy is more of a factor in the issue of police killing unarmed black men.
Have some innocent black men been killed by police, yes, and that's a bad thing, but this happens to whites, Hispanics and everyone else.
Blaming law enforcement for the problems that STILL plague the black community in 2019 is dishonest and a cop out. Over 1200 black men are shot in Chicago last year they were almost exclusively shot by other black men. The statistics don't lie, this film DOES!
