Overview

It's happened to all of us. We're watching some type of genre movie and a black character is introduced. Suddenly, we get a sinking feeling in the pit of our stomach, because we know this character is going to die. For anyone who has ever watched a horror film, or science fiction movie, or action flick, and wondered why the black characters always seem to get killed, David Walker, award-winning journalist, filmmaker and creator of BadAzz MoFo, answers the question, "Why's the Brotha Gotta Die!" In this collection of irreverent and informative essays and profiles, Walker examines the cinematic phenomenon of the Disposable Brotha-the black characters that get bumped off in genre movies. Along the way he profiles some of the greatest Disposable Brothas and Sistas of all time, the films in which they die, and even those lucky few who escape with their lives.
