ooooooooooooooooooooook, about Soul Plane....sadly I saw this movie. And what is even more sad than that.....i laughed......i laughed loud and I laughed **** certain sections. Please, don't hate me for it....it wasn't my fault! it was on bootlegg and I had to watch it!! That African dude had me dyin'....."you don't know the African crab.....THEY ARE HUNTAS!!!" LOL LOL ok, on a more serious note. That movie **** me off because I know that if black people got a airline, it wouldn't be like that. And it was a bad movie anyway....i mean, what was the plot? the purpose. I mean c'mon, that is just downright disprespectful. I mean, strippers?? I liked the popeyes idea, but the whole thing about passing it back and stuff, that's just wrong. It hurts cause now if we do get an airline.....people will be afraid to invest in it because Soul Plan will flash in front of their mind. The thing about black people on TV is that any little thing people see us doing on TV automatically think we all live like that. White Chicks.......i on't know.....i think more white people should be offended by this than us. You know if it was called Black Chicks....it woulda been riots and sh*t gon' on......Johnny, Jesse, and Al would start a march somewhere and be talkin' about boycott Hollywood. That goes to show you, White folk got so much power, they can stay cool and take hits that would ordinarily knock the next person out.

I'm one of those who simply looks at the movie as entertainment. Its a comedy, the whole basis of comedy is stereotyping and outrageous situations that we all should know are unlikely and ludicrous. I mean, its comedy. White comedies do the same thing. American Pie, Half-Baked, Dumb and Dumber, Eurotrip, I mean I can go on and on. Most comedies, unless a satire, dont really have a point to them or much of a plot. If you're looking for some kinda in-depth story you went to the wrong movie. :roll:

^^^true , but when is the last time a black drama has been made. White people dont get mad at their comedies because there is a balance. Everytime there is a black movie it is always a LAUC. Laugh At Us Comedy

Well said. First of all sometimes you do just have to sit back and laugh at some things but in our case the reason we are so affected by the BS put out, is because are bombarded by it. On any given day, any given channel, you can look and see black people making a fool of themselves. Where do we draw the line. I have to admit, some things that I shouldn't laugh at are straight hilarious to me and I am dying on the inside, but what we must realize is that while we are laughing with them, the world is laughing at us.

why does it seem that i have to be dirt poor to receive decent financial aid? my family is well - off but we arent rich by any means...but i still only got a couple hundred dollars from the government! i kno people have already talked about this but i'm still upset about it. just because my parents have good jobs - thats mean we make too much money which means we're rich...according the the government...this is sad.

The reason there are no black dramas is because there's no market for it. Hollywood (going to be used in reference to producers, directors, etc) is not going to make a movie/television show that no one is going to watch. The last black tv drama I can remember (City of Angels) was a really good show, but the ratings sucked compared to lets say, The Parkers. The reason BET shows music videos all day is b/c for the most part, that is what people want to see. Sure a small few might want to watch something different, see something with substance, but everyone else doesnt give two flying fat rats.

i feel what you sayin', I mean I practically had to pretend I didn't have a daddy because if I put how much he made they wouldn't have given me anything!! My parents are divorced and my dad doesn't contribute much, but the gov't don't look at stuff like that. They would thought "oh, he makes this much, he's a prolly a good guy and gives a lot of it to his daughter. No money for her!!" I mean my pel grant **** me to the fullest......its like "what the hell?? Tha's all I am worth? A couple grand?? I though it would had least been like 9 or 8 gs or something like that. I mean dayum, my mom was unemployed when I applied for school and we put that on the FAFSA. If it wasn't for the howard scholly, we woulda been a$$ed out when it came to school.
