Mumia Film

Something slipped under my radar the other day. This past Tuesday the 12th a touring black film company called brought a film to Charlotte recently. Now I checked out their site just briefly and their objective is to bring black independent films to the public that show blacks in non-stereotypical ways. Which I think is a good thing because I know when most white people think of black movies they think of either “Fridays” or “House Party”. So, for the most part, I don’t have a beef with them. Except now they’re touring with a film called “Voice of The Voiceless” about convicted cop killer Mumia Abu Jamal. If you wanted to show blacks in a positive light this is not the man to use. No matter how intelligent or personable he may be he still killed a cop and left a young woman a widow. He is not a role model for blacks. I know a lot of blacks, in my office alone, that would make much better role models than him. He is scum that deserves to die.
