Pandering to black women ain’t as lucrative as it used to be

Too bad black men don’t get pandered too bc we actually support sh1t that we identify with and I know we not a monolith but most black men can agree on certain issues
Like the rap albums we buy

Nobody buys albums it’s streaming now but we did buy physical copies don’t act like didn’t
A lot of mid rappers were going gold and platinum selling physical albums


And as a mid 30 year old black man that’s far removed from the streets bc I grew up like a lot of black men my age the rap sh1t doesn’t fit our lifestyles like it used to

We own homes, have decent to good credit and have families, it’s few rappers that rap about that

It was trash
It really wasn't though. I went into it not knowing they made it a musical. That sh1t was dope. Saw it in the AM with my Orlando crew. Then drove home to WPB and went and saw it again. I thought it was great.

Just a side note, unrelated. If you ever go to the movies. Buy the ticket for the Black movie even if your going to see a white one. Support Black People in any and all facets of life.

They never check the tickets anyway. Next day I took my son to see the Iron Claw, but bought tix for the color purple

I didn't see it ill probably see it on Max
Zaslav is gonna sell pretty soon or merge with another streaming platform the L's in the box office is adding up between sh1t like this and the last string of DC flops not looking good.

Dune part 2 might put them in the green tho

It became a successful Broadway play
it probably worked better as a play than a movie. Same with Phantom of the opera

enough of this sh1t

I wanna see $100 mill for a nat turner film, and I want a scene of him smashing and crushing white babies, which he did ..

Hollywood obsessed with slavery, let's be obsessed then. talk about everything
I like your vision sir.

The same bi#ch that wrote the book married a white man. Allegedly the white guy eventually divorced her partly because of her long standing hatred of black men.

fu#k her and that book.
She was a first wave feminist and treated her daughter like sh1t because she saw having a child as burden, her husband is/was jewish but then later in life she became super anti semtic so she's all fu#ked up but her work did it's job and now it circulates amongst academics as a documentary on the horrors of black men

There's an interview with her daughter that goes more in depth and there is an article a black man wrote on his experiences regarding the harassment and push back he received and still receives because of his criticism of the film and book

The biggest movie in Warner history is “Barbie”

Movie is literally about “the patriarchy”

Taraji killed this movie... I feel like it was very selfish of her to do all that complaining in the middle of the promo run. The negative press of this movie overshadowed it which is a shame because Fantasia did her thing and she'll never get recognition for it because Taraji wanted to get on her soapbox.
Nah films like that gotta go the Tyler perry route and do straight to stream releases. Film wouldve made a better profit. Nobody was going to watch that in theaters. The best man did a reboot for holidays a couple years ago and it was a success on peacock.

Switch and bait of an iconic, historic brand/toy for all living generations sold the movie, not feminism.

Never saw the original as a kid and wasn't interested in watching it as an adult

My mom loved the og and had it on vhs. She watched 15 minutes of the the new one last week and that was all she could take

Would've done much better if it wasn't a musical... The musical aspect is what hurt them the most. I know alot of people that was interested in the remake but nobody interested in the Broadway version

say something...
