Protest the Buffalo Soldier movie

Gretings to All!

This morning on the radio there has been a discussion of the upcming movie entitled "Buffalo Soldier" starring Joaquin Phoenix. The radio
host (activist) is urging everyone to protest this movie for the way the name "Buffalo Soldier" is linked to a negative movie. I read reviews on line and the tag line of the movie is "Steal All You Can Steal." The basic story is about an Army clerk who runs a sideline in black market heroin and arms dealing. I could find nothing that links the movie to Buffalo Soldiers-so why are they using a term that has been historically associated with African Americans to describe a
movie about Army corruption?
I wanted to pass this info on!! I want to write a letter protest but
I'm not sure where to direct my protest. Does anyone have any suggestions? The radio host may have given an address but I was in and
out of the car and I may have missed it.
