'Black Media got that Good Hair'
The video is a brief review on the movie 'Good Hair'. For me the most important part of the video is the appeal for black people to support and also take part in our own dissemination of black images.
That's what I was trying to explain to the person I was having the discussion with regarding the Cadury's advert. It's completely fine disagreeing and voicing that to Cadbury's, but we have to look at this realistically. What are their concerns? and main objectives?. $£$£
We need to start using all the outlets available so we can represent ourselves.We also need to understand first what it means to be black in today's society, outside of Africa and truly represent that to our people and whoever chooses, to read, watch or listen.
We complain, get mad, curse, do kinds of emotional rhetoric, but how far are we prepared to go to change anything. What are we going to do to support other black people now, who are trying to start or we going to get back to our comfort zone of saying a lot but doing nothing.
Please see below websites I visit and also the ones that were mentioned in the videos.
