: Not to play the devil's advocate but How many African Americans did
Hi Tee, I have to agree with you and also add...'somebody's doing some heave trippin' round here.' Cedric is an 'Entertainer,' a 'Comedian.' I honestly don't think these were his words personally, but then again..I don't know. But whatever, this was a 'Hollywood' movie. 'Intimate circle of Friends'..we all know people talk. At a beauty shop, a barber shop. The only difference with this was 'the shop was open to the world.' Ms. Parks does have her right not to attend, and state the reason why..the woman's 90 years old and deserves to do, say and think any way she wants. I'm not saying the comments were right, but for god's sake, this was an entertainment movie. Is Cedric going to be 'punished' forever because he 'went to work?' Or, is it a matter of letting people in 'our house' to hear 'our conversations?' As a matter of fact..How come Richard Pryor never got this kind of attention when he goes 'National' and talks about black/white sex relations? Now that's what makes me (kind of) mad, but, I still LOVE HIM!!
