To speak against Sarah Jane is to not understand how bad segregation was. We still weren't 100 years out of slavery. It's easy in 2015 to talk about what "she should have" or "you would have done".  People-- especially black people just wanted to be treated as normal human beings and not second class citizens.  Can you imagine how phuqqed up it was if you wanted to actually deny your own color?  And it's very obvious if you're black but she was one of those few who could pass. Being from Louisiana I know people who could easily pass if there was a need for it.  I mean even dark skinned men during segregation permed their hair to give the image of being white like, when it's quite obvious they weren't. In watching the film it can piss you off how she treats her mother but she was a kid and just wanted to be like everyone else.

The last 1:57 of this song Run and DC are just free styling and ad-libbing. Amazing. No 9 new today could do this

One of the greatest and timeless love songs. I can only hope the next generation can appreciate this. It's so great to see I'm not only looking for or appreciates it.i don't think Rockie Robbins knew how great it was-- or maybe he did..i can't lie it actually feels good trying to remind people of the song and when they can't remember I play it and that instantaneous recognition b of it so sweet

Amazing how some can't see that the NBA scrotums they're "all on" evolved from this man.

This would have worked much better than JUST SAY NO in the 80's.

This has me in hilarity.
 
Kim and I show America and the world how to pay homage to the mother land and to our African American trailblazers, Hollywood style! Enjoy!

I understand his issue with homophobia in the black community. It's a real issue. But his throwaway statement "I walked in and saw nothing but black women and children is what should really concern people. I thought I was at the welfare office". We're not the only ones there. Idk about anyone else but that speaks volumes to me on how he sees the majority of black women. From Monster's Ball to Precious to The Butler and even Shadowboxer. I don't have a problem with certain portrayals but there's an uneven balance in what he pushes. Hes the anti-Shonda. It's just entertainment ain't always the answer.

+Ann McDonald ..So I'm not being sensitive here? Good to know because I too thought it fell out his mouth quite easily. I've been raised and with many black women and the welfare office is just not my first thought if I see them with kids.
