More power to you ...
More power to you and your well articulated viewpoints. You are a living testament to the belief that more Black men should embrace higher education. Intelligent Black men can't be stopped. But, unfortunately too may black people are sellouts. We seem to believe in this nation that it's all about the dollar. I have come to detest Black entertainment.
I have to totally ...
I have to totally agree with this brotha and the way he articulated his views on TP. I too have the same frustrations with the seemingly repetative storylines TP hits us with but I respect that Rome was not built in one day and for him to amase the infrastructure needed to move foward, he'll have to stick with a his working formula, for now. Respect to Tyler, respect, Baratunde and respect to Reelblack.
the title kind of ...
the title kind of stifles me too. I could read it on kundle . im not getting a hard copy , it could make my public transport experience hell.
how to be black .. ...
how to be black ..hmm. i'll check it out before i say anything. but i dont like the title so far. but hey ' let check it out
I LOVED HOW THIS ...
I LOVED HOW THIS BROTHA ARTICULATED HIS PROS AND CONS OF BROTHA PERRY, FIRST I WANT TO START BY SAYING TO MR. PERRY CONTINUED SUCCESS. NOW TO MY CRITIQUE OF HIS FILMS, MR PERRY CAN YOU TELL A STORY ABOUT AA WHO ARE A CENTERED BLACK PEOPLE; CAN YOU TELL LA STORY ABOUT BLACK MUSLIM'S IN THIS COUNTRY. MR PERRY CAN YOU TELL A STORY ABOUT OUR PAST HISTORY BEFORE OUR ANCESTORS CAME TO THESE SHORES I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THOSE STORY LINES, PLEASE. TO BROTHA BARATUNDE KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, HOTEP.
Thanks for the love ...

Interesting perspective. I don't know why I've never heard of Baratunde but intend to check out his book and his comedy. Thanks for the interview--I like your work..
