I am really tired of this stereotypical black movies that try an depict a black relationship. Even worse, I am tired of these young, seemingly intelligent, Black People who star in these roles- not realizing that they are not simply choosing to represent themselves but every Black Person on the face of the planet. Not only that, I am tired of seeing the ‘certain types’ of Black People- and you know what I mean, they all have ‘that look’ and do not represent the greater majority of Black People. Keep in mind, that most the Blacks that are depicted in these films are not ‘light-skinned’ they are pretty dark and every films claims to capture the black-on-black relationship.
Also, I am tired of any film that urges Black Woman to do anything to quote ‘keep a man’ or ‘keep her man happy’- Hey, maybe I am wrong, maybe this film has a good storyline, plot and ending but I am tired of this mindset that black people are only 1-generation away from stripping down naked and back running in the bushes naked. Movies like this, acts as if our relationships are different from any relationship. As if, black women, even is beautiful and intelligent are mouthy, manipulative, she-devils. Give me a break!
I mean, look at the title of this film- ‘Think Like A Man”- really? In a day in age where a man is relative to what he chooses to identify with- on our community a man is 45-year old male athlete paying $1000,000 a month in child support, an individual perpetually dressed for winter with his boats and heavy jacket, an illiterate womanizer etc etc. In a day in age where STD’s run rampant in the Black Community, in a day in age where well over 50% of Black children are growing up in a single parent home etc, etc- and we want the Black women to think like a man but that same man could care very little about the fact that he is the father to at least 10 children by 7 different woman.
I have one shout out to Black Women- think like the intelligent, smart, beautiful creature that you are and don’t go and see this film. Its both stereotypical and trifling. You don’t need to ‘Think Like a Man” if he can’t treat you like a human being, with respect and honor.
