What did they wear on TV? What did they wear in the movies?
How did the movies make them famous?
You don’t get all of this information from an article in the New Yorker. You get it from the movie posters.
Movies, you understand. They are like the Great Gatsby and Gone With the Wind—they are a metaphor for all that is good and evil in the world. And that’s basically what it is for TV. They also capture the kind of excitement and passion of the moment that I think so many people get from going to the movies. And I like movies a lot. I was never a huge comic book guy, but I do really love movies.
And now look at the big picture and you’re very disappointed with the state of television right now—that it has become so conservative, and it’s so conservative about having to appeal to black people, that all you are getting to see are white people having sex, eating cake, and smoking hookah. That is what I’m hearing.
It’s the same thing I was hearing when I was watching the ’60s: It’s an American thing. And then one day it’s a black thing and another day it’s a gay thing and another day it’s white thing. That’s where we are right now.
In the ’80s, black people weren’t like this. It was a great era to be black in America. It was a time when a lot of people were making movies. I was obsessed with the movies before they became popular in the ’80s. You had black filmmakers like Terence Young; Marlon Brando; and Iggy Pop. That was a very good time to be black in the United States. Back then you didn’t have to be politically correct, but the world was looking at you differently. It was a little bit of a change.
Today, black people are the most politically correct people that exist today. This is the first thing. Let me clarify this: It’s not the whole audience. It’s the people behind it. I love a whole bunch of movies. I love comedies, drama, and romantic comedies; I love horror movies. I love everything. But I’ve never been a huge fan of movies that have one thing in common.
So instead of me writing about movies, what you’re reading right now—even though it has more than 20 pages devoted to movies
