Dr Boyce Watkins: Why the movie "Girls Trip" makes me VERY uncomfortable
Good and thoughtful comments from Boyce. Overall, I enjoyed the movie. The idea of the women peeing when in the air was a bit much for me.
Angela Rye is an attorney and the former executive director and general counsel to the Congressional Black Caucus for the 112th Congress, not just someone who is into the Congressional Black Caucus. I would have thought that someone like Boyce would be more informed, but am not surprised that he wasn't given his general attitude toward Black woman. Whether one agrees with Black folks participating in such institutions, it is still important to know what they are. He often shares stories about his girls to establish his credibility/love for females, but his comments ultimately show something different.
Bottom line is that everything black people put in the cinema can't be Malcolm X and MLK, Jr. This movie was funny. It was a comedy. It was a movie. Nothing more and nothing less. It's not that serious. Adults can choose to interpret whatever they want however they want. This movie was not meant for children or to be a political editorial. There are more important issues to focus on. Life is serious enough. After a while you were just rambling.
I heard that the movie is pretty good. My message and concerns are the same, but I will give it a chance when it comes out on video
Yes it made me uncomfortable as well....I laughed throughout the entire movie and shed some tears during the end! Excellent Queen and Jada! Thanks for giving me a lot of sunshine on a Sunday afternoon....Love You Ladies!
