    I'm tired of seeing things about gay people. Like. Okay. We get it. You're gay. I'm straight who freak cares. People don't make movies about somebody being straight.

    People are born ignorant. People are born to judge. People are born to steal. People are born to kill, does that make it right? People have a choice. I realize some don't because of certain issues. But being born gay is just like being born a pedophile. Being born a sex addict. Being born a rapist. No one knows how they were born.

    Too many Black men playing gay roles, in Hollywood. Most of the casting couches are gay. Besides I could never watch a movie with a black person praying to A white Jesus. PTSD (Posttraumatic Slave Disorder). Mo'Nique probably had to do this propaganda piece to be accepted back into Hollywood. The Dominant  society uses Hollywood as a Tool in a attempt to Homosexualize and depopulate the black community, but it won't work. Black people are gradually waking up.

    I'm all for our negroes doing their part to uplift others and I am proud of Monique. However, I watched her in another YouTube vid stating that this movie was based off of her friend's life and then I cringed. I cringed because I had a flashback of how Aaliya and Whitney Houston were wrongly exploited by others without the consent of family. Negroes need to stop exploiting their own for financial gain. I hope her movie does well but I hope that it was done right with the consent of those lives she based the movie off of.

    I love Monique but I'm gonna watch this too much drama. Religion doesn't have to be put into everything. Your gay be gay, all of sudden u have pretend to be straight cause you feel God won't love u. The bible says to come as you are, I hate when religious people feel as if they can pass judgment on other like all of sudden bc they go to church. Suddenyl they have the power to tell people how to run their life? What you do with your body is your business. Some churches tells if you pierce your ear, perm your hair it's wrong or , women wearing pants is an offense to the Lord. Such small things can make others question your relationship with God. Live your life right, have God in your heart, n have morals I.e don't rape, kill, hurt people, steal etc. Everything doesn't have to be so difficult. Religion is actually suppose to bring us together, but the way some people go about cause more problems n tears people apart.

    This movie is a abomination, thus movie has nothing to do why being a Christian especially rated R, this is a sad thing to see that's promoted to mix homosexuality and church. Being s homosexual is a sin and turning from that is a step in the right direction to Jesus Christ, not staying a homosexual, here's a woman that changed her life.

    Why always the black gay guy has to be with a white dude?

    I saw Blackbird last night (on April 24) and loved it. I believe that if the lead roles were with a different cast it would have made more of an impact but the story was remarkable anyway. I give it 8 of 10 points and here is why: I read somewhere that actors who want to play drunk lean towards playing sober to be more convincing and I think this lead should have done the same with this role as playing "gay". Potty-mouthed Efrem played by Gary LeRoi Gray stole the show.

    Looks so good!

    I have mixed emotions about this movie. In one hand I think it will suck, but I still want to support Isiah Washington and hope this movie stops him from being blackballed.  Good tactic by the way. Play dad supporting his gay son to get the gay community off your back

When a man is accidentally killed in the ring, though, his life is changed forever. He decides that he should return the dead man's money to his widow and child. But, after he meets the woman, Shiza understands that he has real feelings...
