I don't just talk; I practice what I believe in. I stopped watching the CW when they got rid of all the Black shows. If we're not good enough for your station, you won't be getting my views. I don't boycott one person for rape and rape culture and not the others. I wanted to raise Marvin Gaye from the dead and kick his ass once I learned his history with a sixteen-year-old. I had to delete him from my playlist. I got rid of Tupac from my playlist. I don't even listen to hip hop anymore. The rape culture is too glaring. I will no longer watch Black-ish. I can't listen to Michael Jackson or Prince. I don't listen to David Bowie. I get uncomfortable riding with people when R. Kelly comes on the radio and I can't turn it off or switch the station. I did not march for Alton Sterling. I could go on and on. Some have even told me I take things to the extreme. But I stand firm in what I believe in. Racism, rape and rape culture, pedophilia, and child molestation have no place anywhere in my life.
So I watched Deuces last night. It's a new movie starring Larenz Tate, Lance Gross and Meagan Goode. The premise of the story is damn near like every one of those hood novels that are so popular on Amazon these days. If you've read any novel considered hood or urban lit, then you've seen this movie already. And just like some of the hood/urban lit novels, the movie had a few issues. That didn't take away from the fact I kinda enjoyed the jawn. The story goes a little something like this: Man is a drug dealer. Man wants to go legit. Man meets girl. Girl falls in love with man. A new dude comes into the crew. It shakes up crazy and before you know it, the shit done hit the fan. I give the movie a solid three-stars and that's only because it was good to see Larenz Tate on the screen again. However, some of the acting left a lot to be desired. Still, if you got nothing to do on a late night, I'd recommend it.
