    Interesting! That’s why independent films need support to get what most people want to hear about and watch.

    I don’t think the interview should’ve ended there. Ms. Ali sounded like she was onto something at the end of the interview when she said we need to “tell our own story, because no one else is going to tell it for us…” Here are some possible follow up questions: “If you’re not allowed to make any more Black Panther movies, why are they allowed to make slave movies EVERY single year? Why do independent black films that do tell interesting stories NOT involving the stereotypical denigration of our image rarely get the financial backing (or whatever it takes) sufficient to get it into mainstream theaters? Even if great black stories do make it to the big screen, what does that say of the blatant miseducation in our public school system (which PURPOSELY fails to teach children law, real estate, organic gardening, relationships, etc.) which is the REAL source of all of our perceived problems? IMO, these interviews don’t delve deeply enough into the real issues and people’s tendency to be politically correct make these interviews a waste of time to watch.

    I wholeheartedly agree with everything that was discussed in the video!
