    Excellent-it's about time somebody was so truthful!

    I am a 1/4 Black, 3/8 Indigenous American, 3/8 White woman who easily can pass for Sicilian and I am not at all angry at brothers-they actually have been a lot nicer to me than many sisters. I am sick and tired of Tyler Perry, Alice Walker, and Waiting to Exhale and all the bombardment of the message that brothers need to for some reason "atone" just because. Well, so do women of ALL cultures; but nobody has been able to or corageous enough to state that openly yet. This movie was refreshing, incredibly truthful, and yes; many women don't want to hear what it has to say but they sure NEED to. Men and black men in particular have been for the past 40 odd years the scapegoat and boogeyman for women (especially black women)-the truth is that they are not, and they go through a lot from women too. This movie not only tells that so well, it shows it too. It doesn't blame women for everything like some women mistakenly have claimed, but it does say step up to the plate and make better choices. Also, there are many good black men-but nobody even recognizes or values them. This film I would have given 6 stars to if I could have. It's time to end this 40 odd year old female fascism and hear out both sides of the story. That is the only way anything CAN change for the better.
