    THE TITLE TELLS US WHO THE INTENDED MARKET FOR THE FILM IS. SO WHY REACT WITH HATE TO A TITLE?

    Are colored people not sick of this foam of discrimination? If non-colored folk had movies, channels, history months, beauty pageants, comedy nights, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, about them, wouldn't that be racist? Whats next, White Nativity?

    Why don't they just call it "Nativity". Why does it have to be about color.
