Few comedians can stir up controversy like the legendary Paul Mooney -- writer for Richard Pryor, creator of In Living Color's Homey the Clown and featured guest on Chappelle's Show. With his characteristic brutal honesty, Mooney passionately and hysterically charges into the electrified currents of racial tension. In this magnificent standup performance at Hollywood's Laugh Factory, Mooney earns a standing ovation with his relentless no-holds-barred observations on black history, stereotypes and prejudices, living in White America, celebrity divas and much, much more!
You should never make a movie (and pretending to "educate" people) with such lack of honesty and precaution ! Of course, if you want to demonstrate that Jesus was black... before having any proof, well it's easy ! You will read and interpret any element in this direction.
Problem of this movie is that it's not convincing at all... and that serious historians (who are not all whites, members of the KKK and prejudiced against colored people !) are still debating about it...
We know for sure that Jesus did not have a Nordic type : it's not a proof that he was black ! And Cleopatra was a metis between Egyptian and Greek : she's the last queen of the Ptomele dynasty... which is coming more from Athen than Africa !!! so watching this movie is really scary sometimes ! Especially when you start to imagine that uncultivated people will take its "researches" for truth...
