I just came across this well thought out article by Speech Thomas (Arrested Development) on the new Hollywood hit "Straight Outta Compton".
The snippet below kinda summarizes the article, but read the full article (see link below).
Yes, Straight Outta Compton is very good and yes, these men have immense talent, but Italian mafioso refused to sell crack to their own communities. They insisted on separating their families from their illegal business.
We sell this “crack music” to our little kids and we infest the whole world with it!
It is NOT just entertainment. We are getting killed in real life. We influence Africa, South America and everywhere there’s poor people that need inspiration. It has never been simple entertainment and it has far out reached the block…. it’s racist propaganda. And it hurts the soul of humanity!
Don't get mad if you loved the movie and others like it, budt maybe think twice before rushing to see the next black rags to riches biopic put out by Hollywood.
