    Since we are on the topic of movies, we have to talk about the the obscene piece of cinema called Girls Trip. I just saw the movie, I want my money back. That movie was just as offensive as Soul Plane. It seems Tiffany Haddish is the new black actress who is going to play the stereotypical, loud, ignorant, ghetto type of black woman; you know, the black woman who isn’t very attractive and probably suffers from a serious case of mental illness and attention deficit disorder (Think Nene Leakes). One of the lines in the movie is, “You can’t get a STD in your booty hole.” In my opinion, black people should boycott this disgusting cinematic minstrel show.
