Shit (some) Black People Said During and After ‘Red Tails’ [Spoiler Alert]

An account of honest conversations that occurred amongst some African-Americans after seeing the highly-anticipated, “Hollywood-shunned”, George Lucas-produced, and in their opinion, over-hyped and underachieveing film, “Red Tails”.
 

“I’ll admit, I saw this movie because I felt obligated.”

“I thought the theater was going to be sold out.”

“You think some of the white people here came because they are George Lucas fans?”

“Well, my mama told me it was good…but she likes anything with us in it.”

“Black folks will clap everytime a black character stands up to a white character in a movie.”

“I thought I’d learn somethin’ new though…”

“Were any of those characters real?”

“Shhh… don’t talk down the movie around mixed company.”

“The music is a bit much, no?”

“What was up with that Arial font in the opening and ending credits?”

“That script was killin’ me…”

“Not one sista, huh?”

“The characters had 21st century swagger in a 1940’s movie. I wouldn’t have been surprised if they dabbed each other up at some point.”
