“This was the first time in as long as I can remember where the lead characters, though African-American and male, were not tragedies. No drugs, alcohol problems. Each man had a job, neigh a career. It really reminded me of my friends. I know someone that represents each of those characters. Not too long out of college and working our way towards u0026quot;making it.u0026quot; It really sent the message that African-Americans are able to achieve without a rap video and we certainly donu0026#39;t all sell drugs. It was not a typical u0026quot;blacku0026quot; movie. It was just a movie about a group of friends, irrespective of the color of their skin. We have brains and know how to use them. This is a more accurate representation of us anyway since what the media shows is a very small percentage. Great job, Spike!”
