    i live here in the US, and within the last year or so there have been a CRAPLOAD of movies about black people, focused on black people doing stupid crap... what is up with this? does anyone know?

    im not racist at all, but i am wondering what is up with that

    i know you can say there are a lot of movies about white people out too, but it seems like all of a sudden there are a ton of these movies coming out...

    First Sunday
    Welcome Home Rosco Jenkins
    Are We There Yet?

    i can't even remember the half of them, but it seems like there are a lot of them that came out recently

    i remember sometime about a few months ago, like 4 came out at once and all sucked

    and the ONLY REASON I AM BRINGING THIS UP is because i have seen a LOT of stuff on TV about "Black Movie Awards" and "Black Movie Reviews" if anything, THAT is racist, if we had "White Movie Awards" or "White Movie Reviews" Jesse James and Al Sharpton would be all over it....

    btw, i am voting for Obama if he wins the democratic partys thing, hillary doesn't have a clue whats going on....

    Although you tried not to sound it. Your post did come across as racist.

    hit the nail on the head....

    these movies just perpetuate the stereotypes on how black people act.... like if anyone remembers barbershop and friday, next friday... etc.

    like i said, i am not racist, just wondering why there have been a lot of movies made by black people, mainly for black people, and they generally just show the normal typical stereotypes that are out there for a black american....

    and take for instance the chapelle show....

    also if we had a channel called WET, (white entertainment television) there would be lawsuits from here to the moon..... yes, i know we have MSNBC and CNN, but come on...
