Typically, I tend to let the higher power guide me to write about the things that touch my life. Most recently, the death of my older brother (technically my uncle) really made me reflect on the struggles of black men and the areas where we go wrong. But ironically, it was during this journey that I realized that sometimes, the place where we go wrong is inside our own heads. Our desire to hate and disrespect one another so blatantly and consistently doesn’t do much to help our collective self-esteem, and ultimately turns a surmountable challenge into a mountain which cannot be climbed.
Watching the film “Hoodwinked” was a moving experience and made me actually believe that this might be one of the most important movies I’ve ever seen. It’s importantly largely because it changes the way we see ourselves and one another. Janks Morton has outdone himself with this one, and I must give him credit for the creation of what could very well become a classic.
