Tito Today: Precious Movie…………………………


Written by:

I do agree that this movie is based on a reality for some African Americans. However, does this story need to be told?… no. What needs to be told are stories of the Talented Tenth. Stories of great African Americans doing great things. Admit it or not, people’s opinions are greatly influenced by TV and movies. With so few Black dramas, another poor ghetto story that goes no where is not profound nor entertaining. It is repetitive and image damaging.
What are your thoughts on my comments and/or the movie? It’s an open discussion.

    I think sometimes we as African-Americans are ashamed of what others (whites,etc) will think of us if our stories are told…the bad ones that is. While I agree we don’t need another negative out there about us, sexual and physical abuse are things that are too often swept under the rug. Just ask around and you will find that many families have “that uncle” the one that all the girls are told to stay away from but NO ONE in the darn family has the courage, conviction, or dare I say intelligence to REPORT. Victims are suffering beyond belief and I think our society does a disservice to those who are abused. AAs don’t own abuse, it happens in all kinds of families. It’s ugly but it’s truth, and yes people need to face it.

    I agree the problem exist. I agree the problem is serious and deserves attention. However, with so few Black Movies reaching the Big Screen do we really need more films that illustrate the dysfunctions of the Black Family? How many Black people in the hood movies are there going to be? We need balance.
