    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?
