Last week I checked out American Gangster. It was pretty good, and if you haven’t checked it out yet, you should give it a whirl.
Anywho, the day after I watched it a co-worker, Keila, and I were discussing it.
“You know,” I said, “American Gangster was pretty good, but now I’m confused.”
“Why’s that?” Keila asked.
“Well, in Boyz n the Hood, Laurence Fishburne said that drugs were brought over by the white man to keep the black man down. Yet American Gangster shows that it was a black man that brought over the drugs. Now I don’t know what to think.”
Keila studied me for a moment.
“Stewie,” she said, as if to a small child, “you have got to stop trying to learn about my people by watching movies.”
