Cena_mark - 2019-02-13 Beyond the black face this film also seems to push the narrative that a few scholarships for blacks means it's a hard knock life for middle class white boys. I know so many people who believe white males are oppressed and that being a minority cake.
exy - 2019-02-14 As an accidental Soul Man apologist: IIRC, our hero eventually learns that swiping this affirmative action slot was a shithead thing to do. Not that this movie was converting anyone's mindset. If you were racist enough to think minorities had it easy, you were also racist enough to avoid watching a movie that paid any mind to "those people."
