    Stop Moving Goalposts (On Black People) - Preview to Episode 263

    6 GIU 2024 · This week on Black on Black Cinema, the crew returns to announce the next film to be reviewed. The 2020 sequel "Bad Boys For Life." The third film in the Bad Boys franchise starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence taking on a Mother and Son team of drug lords wreaking havoc in their beloved city of Miami. The random topics this week are connected through the idea of an odd need for some to move the goalposts on Black people when their standard for others remains the same. The crew disgusts sport commentators (specifically Stephen A. Smith) giving over the top coverage of Caitlin Clark playing a rookie in the WNBA. The second topic is on Sam Forster, a Canadian author, who decided to write a book on racism against Black Americans. The hook is that he disguised himself as a Black person to get a "true" understanding of what Black people go through in America.

  • Women Still Get Squeezed in Rap Beef - Preview to Episode 262

    8 MAG 2024 · This week on Black on Black Cinema, the crew returns to announce the next film, "The American Society of Magical Negroes." The film follows a young man, Aren, who is recruited into a secret society of magical Black people who dedicate their lives to a cause of utmost importance: making white people's lives easier. The random topic this week is about the rap beef between Kendrick Lamar and Drake. However, as there are so many other shows talking about the lyrical contest, we decided to take a different angle on what this beef means in a larger context. Frankly, how it and many other rap beefs tend to squeeze women in the middle as named victims, weaponized sexual encounters, and even the stripping of their humanity to be used as merely objects for these men to manipulate for the end goal of winning the contest in the court of public opinion.
