In recent years Bamboozled has achieved cult film status for its satirical look at stereotypical depictions of black people in both historical and contemporary American film and television productions.

Here is the plot of Bamboozled as described on Wikipedia.


If you are a progressive politically, I suggest that you gather a bunch of your black, white, and Asian friends, preferably cross-generational, watch the movie together, sit quietly after it is done for at least ten minutes and then have a serious discussion about black face, BLM and issues of race. I’ve already done it. It was an amazing experience.

Thanks for your “Claps”. They are greatly appreciated and motivate me to write even more profusely
