A Truly Crucial Lesson to Be Learned....."Bring Your 'A' Game"

Watch more free documentaries

First off, the message from this Mario Van Peebles produced project is one that we tout here at Afronerd ad infinitum. The message is on point, I'm just not sure about some of the folks displayed in this piece actually being in a position of authority to propogate it! Case in point-Ice Cube, P. Diddy, Russell Simmons and Kevin Liles, just to name a few, are some of the individuals (again, some not all) who are the image makers responsible for the minstrel aesthetic that is infecting the Hip Hop industry that this doc seeks to critique. But what say you? Are we off base? Can we ignore some of the messengers in this one?

No - you can't ignore them. It would be akin to a surgeon removing a metastatic tumor from your brain while ignoring the cancerous source in your lung.
