Moonlight

Who said a movie with a majority black cast can’t win awards unless the main character plays a maid or a crack addict?

Moonlight is about a black boy named Chiron who grows up in a rough part of Miami and finally accepts his homosexuality after longing for a boyhood pal.

Moonlight stars Mahershala Ali, Janelle Monáe and Naomie Harries as Paula, Chiron’s crackhead single mom.

Chiron (played by 3 actors from childhood to adult) is bullied unmercifully by neighborhood thugs, mostly for his small stature and his effeminate nature.

Mahershala Ali plays Juan, the sympathetic neighborhood drug dealer who acts as a father figure to Chiron and teaches the boy to swim.

Monáe plays Juan’s empathetic girlfriend Teresa, who provides Chiron with a safe home away from home.

The following is a quote from a Wikipedia review:

“The only other person Chiron seems to find comfort and companionship in is his best friend Kevin (Jaden Piner), and their sexuality begins to bud when they stay after a dancing class during school to show their genitals to each other.”

Moonlight didn’t do well at the box office for obvious reasons (it grossed $8 million since opening day in October). But the critics are raving about Moonlight, Hollywood’s pet project of the moment.

    This Is downright disgusting

  • Petty Rubble

    I liked it

  • Rachel

    (Shrugs), I wonder if this is going to be the new trend for AA to win oscars. They have worn out the slave and maid movies to death, so the new angle is the black gay man or boy movies. Sorry I don’t see nothing fascinating about this movie maybe the empathic Caucasians will love it.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I guess I’ll see it this Fridee

  • Incog-knee-gress

    So black gay boys not supposed to grow up? They cant show it? Why am I singled out for having supposedly gay hate, when I aint got none…. and all REAL gay the haters on here get to spew their hate freely?

    I listened to the screenwriter on NPR talking about the movie. I believe it was kind of based on his own experiences. He had a tough time.

    Who said a movie with a majority black cast can’t win awards unless the main character plays a maid or a crack addict?

    Don’t forget gay. Blacks have to play a lesser role to be awarded. So I’m not personally impressed that it was nominated.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Doctor Strange is really good. I’m not really into Marvel but I really enjoyed it.

  • Yoni

    I LOVE Kid Fury. LOL

  • MoniquetheGeek

    I went to see the movie because Mahershala Ali is in it. (he’s so fine). Oh and Naomie Harris is in it too (plays his mama). That woman can act!!

    Yes, Chiron’s sexuality played a role, but it isn’t an overly gay movie like Sandra’s making it out to be. The movie was very good.

  • Buttercup

    If Loving You is Wrong is SO BAD, but I can’t stop watching it.

  • Yoni

    Doctor Strange is something I want to see…..but not right now.

  • Buttercup

    We’ll definitely see it this weekend. Lil Butter has made me love all things Marvel.

  • iWasteTime

    I was thinking the same. It is a coming of age film just with a gay lead. In the damn trailer the “momma” asked the surrogate if he was going to explain to the boy why they keep beating him up.

  • Salliemae’s Boosh

    great minds…

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Tell me more…

  • iWasteTime

    where do we find it

  • Yoni

    It’s not about my beliefs. My spirit isn’t ready for the bullying, beating, drugs and struggle that was shown. My spirit might be a lil fragile right now. Is what I’m saying.

    I feel you…my son was offered a gay role and he refused to take it because of that. I know Michael K isn’t gay, but I respect his range. I am not sure how I feel about my son playing a gay role not being gay… but hey, He’s is grown. So I can’t tell him what he should or shouldn’t do otherwise. Will smith did it…but errrr…nevermind.

    What do you expect from Sandra exactly?

  • harley_quinn2.0

    For those who say Cottonmouth is fine….Do you think he’s a good looking man or is it his swag (whatever the term the kids use today) that you find attractive? Just curious cause his looks do nothing for me but he does have swag which I find sexy.

    I agree but this is my last season. I can’t deal with the long drawn out scenes, the dialogue between the characters is stupid at times. Just ridiculous.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Not a papsmear ???. Bye OJ ?

  • Scromes1212

    I just don’t understand how you saying you knew your friend was gay and you stuck around for 14 years. His story is suspect.

  • Elevated Soul

    This is ONE of the main reasons why I don’t do Democrat because of the immorality they push on people ESPECIALLY Black people.They have hurt Black people in so many ways but many Blacks are too blind to see it.

    The puppet masters used the very willing 0bama to push the gay agenda in America and beyond.Homosexuality isn’t normal but in this age of “PC” by those who are not correct,this sin is pushed on the masses as if it’s okay.

    There was a time according to my people, where Black people didn’t “go along with this nonsense” now you pay to see it which means you also support it.

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    I saw this film, it was a very in depth film. I enjoyed the content. This film (in my opinion) was created to push “The Gay Agenda”. It speaks to other factors/epidemics within the African American community.

  • Irony

    Maybe not pushed an agenda, but try to lay it on the AA community to start accepting those that are shall we say different? Since you saw it.

  • stanhope

    Gay Agenda? Another black (i presume) mind poisoned by YT media and associated crackers. The same minds that come up with s h y t like gay agenda are the sames ones calling you n i g g e r. Purchase a clue.

  • RespectSelf

    So you disagree with the terminology? If not “gay agenda” then what do you call it? Gay Marketing??? There does seem to be a strong push for our society to embrace homosexuality. You see this push through TV shows, Movies, Schools, Advertisements, and so on….

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    Not with his film. Though it highlights his struggles with his sexuality it touches on a lot of other factors that tends to keep “us” disinfranchised (I.e. Crack-cocaine epidemic, no father within the household, etc).

  • kennedy campbell

    so it’s not a movie for you ..but there is a black child out there not going through this…democrat or repub…they’ve been pushing the str8 agenda too long anyway…let some of the others see themselves reflected in the media..of course people will pay to see it b/c there is an audience..not all of us fall under your bubble

  • kennedy campbell

    probably because there are kids going through these real life events…this is def a reflection of one of my gay cousins

  • Phillybruh

    I don’t think its pushing you to accept anything except that particular person, people are more than gay and more than black. But often times that’s what we reduce people down too, before he’s John, he’s gay.

  • SouljaSociety

    WTF….. So this is the new theme of Black films? Homosexuality for the Black Males… interracial dating for the Black Females.

    And that’s why I stopped watching Empire. I can’t stand all these damn gay men prancing all over the damn place. Sickening.

  • OrchidJones-Work for Money

    My sister is on this whole kick with Hollywood and how everyone is worshiping evil spirits and Illuminati and selling their souls to be successful. I stayed on the phone with her last night listening to her rant on her conspiracy theory. That part is not what I want my child to sign up for, and I can probably see some it being true with Will and the others… but I totally get what you are saying about those ‘spiritual” doors. Like I just don’t think people should entertain certain elements,,, like Aaliyah in Queen of the damned or the whole cast that died in Poltergeist. Somethings are just better left…undone in all aspects of media.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I hear ya lol

  • RespectSelf

    But my question is why? If homosexuality wasn’t accepted the way that it is today would there be as many homosexuals? I don’t really think so. Society is made up of followers lol. Society follows what is in. You see that through social media everyday. They do it with clothes all the time. I do not think that if there wasn’t such a strong push to have everyone accept/damn near be gay…. that there would be so many kids even having to deal or think about it so heavily.

    so why is it receiving such raves reviews? not trolling you, i’m genuinely asking.

    i watched “the oversimplification of her beauty” after it was hurrah’ed over by the film (snob) community and i thought it was just alright—more an art piece than a film.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    When he pulles out that engagement ring that didn’t have a single diamond….

  • kennedy campbell

    how do you think we feel when the str8 agenda has been shoved down our throats…you people that say that act like the gay agenda has been going as long as the str8 agenda….why don’t you just ignore it and let it be for the audience it’s intended for..you can easily control what you want to see right? or are you being forced?.. you could avoid this website right?

  • Incog-knee-gress

    For me its both. I love his chisled features. I love a blurple colored man. That swag helps his case as well.

  • Irony

    That’s why I said it profitted, I haven’t seen it but I’m sure production was only $1000. LOL

  • kennedy campbell

    well if he’s not gay and he plays a gay role. don’t worry it won’t make him gay..before women where allowed to act men played all of the roles…if anything if he’s able to get through it it will show he’s a really good actor instead of some of these actors playing roles that don’t actually show their talents. ..i want to see halle play someone other than halle berry…maybe she’s in a movie playing someone just reciting lines and i haven’t seen it yet

  • Irony

    But the REAL question: Does it push a “gay agenda?”

  • MoniquetheGeek

    I tried to look past some of the camera angles partially because it is an independent film.

  • SummerBaby

    I saw this movie & I liked it. It was a little slow paced at times & a few loose ends, but I took it for what is was.

  • OrchidJones-Work for Money

    Not A 1!!. Bugs Bunny had more Karats!

  • Phillybruh

    I don’t think it pushed an agenda, I think it pushed a this particular dude had issues that he hadn’t dealt with.

  • RespectSelf

    I agree that people are more than skin color and who they prefer to be in love with…. But I can’t deny or be blind to the fact that there is a push for us to embrace something that actually goes against the three monotheistic religions. Most people I encounter are either Jews, Christians, or Muslim…

  • Kanyade

    ultimately, i love seeing black filmmakers/actors/producers/all of that EXPAND us. we’re more than them roles that have won Oscars.

    i can’t understand why people have to bash the movie….if it’s not the type of movie you want to see b/c of the gay theme simply don’t watch it…as far as a gay agenda..some of you act like the gay agenda in the media has been going on as long as the str8 agenda??? shoved down your throats? really? as much as gay people had to watch str8 content or “normal content”… ..i’d say many of us want to see ourselves reflected in the media…the world isn’t just what you live or what i live…i’m ranting but only because some of you are acting entitled..and we have enough that already

    Then you have no one to blame but you and your dry chicken.

  • iWasteTime

    Yes. There would still be the same number. Homosexuality has been here since the beginning of time. It made the bible. Now they don’t have to hide as much on our society.

  • iWasteTime

    you and me both!

  • Keesh5000

    Yeah, I probably wont be watching this movie…..Like several others. Nothing against it…just look like it aint gonna be bout shat

  • Libra80sBaby

    Tip should be ashamed…but he aint. This goes to show, no matter how hard you ride for a dude, allow 3 somes….if he wanna cheat…HE GONE CHEAT

  • A D N

    Yes!!! And he says he doesn’t understand what everyone is amazed by. He has it laid out…with a toilet, bedroom and guest bedroom (for $25 a week)…all decorated…

  • RespectSelf

    But how??? How is it in so many people’s DNA to live a lifestyle that is simply not natural to our whole existence? Yes, I get having feeling and being moved off emotions. But before all the artificial technology— there is no way for a man and man to reproduce or a woman and woman to reproduce (from what we’ve been taught). So why would it been in someone’s DNA to not continue human life?

  • Irony

    Everyone should feel comfortable, no matter how much I cringe at things. Lol

  • OrchidJones-Work for Money

    Yes, we live in a very homophobic world my friend. I understand the range it will take. Not sure if he will.

  • Rayne

    You didn’t see how he even had antiques laid out. Lol and he had on a housecoat with a brim hat on ?? I was like look at this young playa here. He done set up home UNDER the viaduct lmmfaooo. ????

  • Phillybruh

    And the incomes, gay men and women make more than their straight counterparts and often times that income is disposable why wouldn’t they advertise to that community.

  • A D N

    Entitled? Because we want to see things we identify with? Isn’t that your argument…that you want to see things that you identify with?

  • OrchidJones-Work for Money

  • shun king

    At my soon to be old job once the gays and undercover gays find out it not a snowball chance in hell of your screwing them or playing patty cake it’s hell to pay worked to death and just forget about a promotion

  • SummerBaby

    I’ve said this numerous times. I think she turned him onto that lifestyle.

  • Phillybruh

    Worrying about the next man is what’s not natural to our existence its what has gotten man in far more trouble than homosexuality.

  • A D N

    “Soon to be old job” LMBO

  • Carter Jones

    This comment made me giggle.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    It may be a good movie, but it’s odd to keep pushing homosexuality onto children. I guess the presumption is that it already exists, so why not address it. BUT what if it doesn’t already exist?!

  • Scromes1212

    So a woman that doesn’t want to have kids should be looked at the same?

  • A D N

    REALLY?!!! Oh no!

  • T3

    Girl yes. I just got on it. I didn’t watch ABG on YouTube though. I might check it out. I like her too though.

  • A D N

    He really took pride in his home. Someone said the city tore down his home.

  • Irony

    Or barren?

  • Incog-knee-gress

    I knew they would once it got out he was making money off it renting space out to the other homeless.

  • Scromes1212

    They also carry the most debt.

  • ChocolateChick84

    I saw this movie over the holiday and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. If you look at it with an open mind and are not too put off by the “gay agenda”, the movie is really good. Also, let me just say Trevante Rhodes, who plays the main character Black when he grows up, is so damn fine!

  • Phillybruh

    You can choose to believe it doesn’t exist.

  • Libra80sBaby

    I’m not saying she isn’t, but you would think a man getting all that EXTRA would sit down somewhere

  • SummerBaby

    Yes indeed! My doorter was like no way he got that fine. ?

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Which children is this movie pushing homosexuality on to though? This movie is Rated R. Not E for everyone. Kids shouldnt be at this movie noway.

  • RespectSelf

    I know that they have been around for many of years. But I do think that a lot of people are moving on what they see.

    That’s what pisses me off! Gay agenda. Ok. Go for it. Leave the babies out of this! That’s how you know this is some twisted chit!

  • A D N

    Destroying the black family began centuries ago…

  • CutdBS

    This is what white liberals have planned for blacks. 50% of black male news anchors are gay. Most of the black producers are Gay. They even want black leadership to be Gay. Black Lives matters is a Jewish funded black Gay led organization. The problem with this is Black Gays #1 PRIORITY is their sexual orientation NOT the Black Community.

    This older guy and I was to see. He mentioned that he heard “Moonlight” was good and he might see it. Then, I told him what it was about and he changed his mind lol. He was pissed that no one told him. I didn’t know either until I looked up another trailer online. Love the cast but have no desire to see it.

    “These crackers are trying to destroy this race”

    It falls on more than those wicked “crackers”. Black folk have had a hand in this and have in many ways been complicit — which they should be free to do. None other that President Obama has been on the forefront of making Homosexuality mainstream. Ever since he “evolved”, He didn’t simply make Homosexuality a thing to be accepted/tolerated, but has actively pushed a number of things to promote the “Gay Agenda”: Removed government support of the Defense of Marriage Act, had government attorneys defend the “same-sex” marriage case, removing “don’t ask – don’t tell” from all military branches.

    With the leader of the nation being so involved with gay issues, you can’t deny that it gives a huge level of validation to the cause at hand. So it stands to reason that movies and other forms of artistic expression will gain a new found acceptance.

    Just don’t believe this is simply about what some white folks with an agenda are doing. Is Obama trying to destroy the black race?

  • RespectSelf

    I guess that’s my whole point…. Why is there being a push to accept something that doesn’t bother me. If a man like and man… cool… If a woman likes a women cool… But why does it seem like they are trying to force something down our throats. This push is causing folks to have to worry about what the next man is doing when I don’t really want to.

    • Annual income of gay people average $61,500 compared to national median of $50,054

    • Gay people are $4,000 less in debt than straight counterparts

    • Gay people build up more equity in their homes: a median of $77,000 compared to the national median of $62,000

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Who said anything about black women? Where?

  • Incog-knee-gress

    They were on GMA! That mess. Girl.

  • Scromes1212

    He said women also, I guess because of this site demographics i just assumed he meant middle aged black women.

  • ChocolateChick84

    Some parts definitely pull at your heart strings. No child should EVER have to deal with the things that he (main character) had to. It really is heartbreaking to see it.

  • RespectSelf

    Sandra posted stories about a son trying to marry his mom and daughter trying to marry her mom…. I have the same thoughts that I have for gay people. It is their lives. If they want to be able to do something that makes them happy cool. Doesn’t take a way from who they are as people

    But if I start seeing advertisements with son and mother lovers, they start talking to the kids about accepting them (therefore introducing children to that possible lifestyle) If I see it in movies.. If TV shows start to have a least one character in a relationship with their parent. If a celebrity or simply employees starts to have to be in jeopardy of their jobs/money for speaking against that lifestyle… then I will think that they are pushing that crap down our throats.

  • Phillybruh

    Cable box in the family room gets nothing but Disney and Nickelodeon. We may go see a Transformer or them type of movies, But never anything like this. I thought the new roots was too much, but the partner disagreed. Now the youngest one is a bit cagey around white folk…lol

  • BRuhman_Vista

    What “Christians” are you referring to? Now if you mean “Mormons” — which many would not consider Christians in the orthodox sense — they did hold to the “curse of Ham” belief until they received “new revelation” in the 20th century.

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    Not with his film. Though it highlights his struggles with his sexuality it touches on a lot of other factors that tends to keep “us” disinfranchised (I.e. Crack-cocaine epidemic, no father within the household, etc).

  • Libra80sBaby

    That’s just ridiculous…Like damned if you do, damned if you dont.

  • Phillybruh

    Just two

  • Phillybruh

    No need to apologize its the internet…lol

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    There is no need to “purchase a clue”. Please reference my second comment. Part of the issue is that folks need to STOP depending on the “white media” to raise their children. It’s the parent’s/village’s responsibility to provide culture and substance to the child.

  • OrchidJones-Work for Money

    And! that’s exactly what she did and exactly what happened.

    Lol I’m always surprised when people are shocked that homosexuality exists. Sexual undertones with heterosexual kids happens in movies as well. Gay people aren’t going anywhere.

  • RespectSelf

    True… Let me say I am referring to all the religious groups who use the bible as their Holy book. There is no secret that the bible are with stories of black people..

    But the 10 commandments have seem to be a universal law. Marriage is one of those. Marriage is define by God (according to the Bible) to between a man and woman.

  • Carrington

    Personally, it was as artistically produced as well as it could be. I don’t have much to say from that end… in terms of the direction and editing – it was simply horrible. It went on and on and on about absolutely nothing for the first full hour. And it never explained certain things. Like why this drug dealer took a liking to this kid and befriended him… if I was righteous in my uncomfortable feelings every time he looked at the kid. Every time he touched him, particularly in that pool… How, he became a thug when he moved to Atlanta and then came back to town at the last minute to tell his high school friend (that he kissed one time during school) that he never let another PERSON touch him since that day… they gazed into each other’s eyes – and it went off. Wait, wet? Was the friend gay? Did he two piece him? Did he two-piece him? WHY did he kiss his friend in high school and swear off women AND men for the next 13 years? Did the friend, who had a baby and was the school “player” have feelings for him and that’s why he got his number from his mammy and called him and told him that he heard a song on the radio and then decided to reach out? Why, why, why? What, what, what? It was too much nothing and not enough something going on. I wasn’t looking for them to kiss and have relations, I was just interested in their lives and how they became who they were, why they became who they were… it was too much nothingness going on in my opinion. And honestly, it wasn’t really a “gay agenda” theme to me. It was a story that just happened to be about two dudes who may, or may not, have been gay. I’m just interested in interpersonal relationship dynamics period, so the gay stuff (which, honestly there wasn’t ANY gay stuff , besides that one kiss, in the movie) wasn’t a draw for me. I’m reading a really good book about John F. Kennedy and his best friend Lem now that was recommended by my cousin who is a college professor who knows of my interest in complicated relationships and this one is about JFK’s best friend from high school all the way through his death (and everyone knew it)… who was a flaming queen.
    That peaked the HELL out of my interest, so I’m into it.

  • Phillybruh

    Well first all son/mother and all that stuff is disgusting and unfortunately, It sounds like you equate gay with sex and that’s all you can see is the sex and not the person.

  • Irony

    This was talk many years ago, long before the Internet. But there are forums were it has/is being discussed. So, that tells you that some Christians had ghis thought process. (Whites namely) But it spewed over in some of our church talks before where ole passa wanted to show we weren’t.

  • KcoolMuziq

    This movie is a must see. The statement U gave and the quote from the movie is totally misleading. This movie is so much more than your juvenile statements…

    BTW Mahershala Ali who plays Juan is the next Denzel. The acting was phenomenal by the whole cast…

  • morenYAHdelsur

    LMBO. Absolutely! Kids are off limits in my opinion. That’s my only beef.

  • RespectSelf

    your comment is silly to me. Who defines what is disgusting lol??? There are plenty of who think homosexuals and their lifestyles as disgusting. All of that stuff is unnatural. It seems like you equate child and parent lovers to just sex… and don’t see them as people. But they are still people even if you or I don’t agree with what they are doing. If they are grown and they are making decision like that… who am I to judge.

    But I will have a problem if their lifestyle starts to be push down our throats. It is a slippery slope where you want to make it so that we have to accept one group of people for their unnatural lifestyles then why not accept other group of people for their unnatural lifestyles.

  • T3

    Well Sandra its time for a movie that shares this sort of story. This is a story millions of people can relate to–and it doesn’t glorify black-on-black homicide the way two of your favorite rappers–T.I. and Young Jeezy–do in their music. Its a touching story that anyone with a heart can appreciate.

    Its getting rave reviews from people who have chosen not to be blinded by hate or ignorance. Perhaps you should watch it Sandra and then let us know what you think. Clearly, you haven’t sat for a minute of it.

  • Phillybruh

    LOL @ your whole comment, actually at all your comments on this thread. You equate incest with being gay.

  • KcoolMuziq

    I’m not a doll I’m an action figure.

  • Cerebral Assassin

    If the movie was good, why the need to make the main character gay in the first place? Hollywood consistently depicts black people in the most demeaning ways possible and just because they paired this shit with a decent script makes this a pill you can swallow?

    It’s not ‘overly gay’, wtf? Does it need to be? No POC should be supporting this film just because it wears the guise of being a ‘black film’.

    Look if you have sons, if you are a person of color trying to make it in this corrupt industry, if you ever feel like you’re being looked down upon by ‘white America’, if you love all people but can admit that there is a homosexual agenda saturating our media… then don’t support this movie in the slightest. Not in cinema, not on dvd, not anywhere.

    We have more than enough talented artists and screen writers out there. Hollywood can do better. Bored? Go read a book, talk to your kids, or go catch up with someone you haven’t spoken to in a while but please don’t settle for this cerebral garbage they call a movie.

  • B.Sweet has e-white privilege

    And I you.

  • RespectSelf

    I applied your logic of accepting people for who they are. Those child and parent lovers are somebody neighbors, they are probably funny too, they probably help people out as well… that’s what is wrong with folks… I’m saying that they are people too… just like gays, white, black, whatever…. They too are doing something that is unnatural… But for now… until we move to a world wear they’ll be accepted… we will say it’s disgusting…. kind of how the gays started out.

    If they are disgusting you… as they are to most. That’s one right to think that. you don’t have to accept that… I would be bothered if they starting pushing us to accept something that I don’t agree with in my life or my child’s life…. and I apply that same logic to gays… it’s one right not to want to accept gays so why keep throwing it down our throats.

    But if you are gay then I can see why you wouldn’t feel like there is a “gay agenda”

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    This was a well-written review but your logic is flawed. Millions of people don’t relate to down low men hiding their lust for other men. So I’m now following what you mean by that. The truth is homosexuality is usually the result of a dysfunctional childhood. More black boys are being exposed to dysfunctional home environments and the lack of a father figure in the home.

    And don’t forget the abundance of incest/molestation that takes place within the Black community passed down from generation to generation.
    Way too many of our Black fathers, uncles, brothers and cousins are lusting after their own relatives. smh.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I really wanna see this. I wanna know and better understand what gay people go through in life.

  • BLACK *I*C*E*

    My lawd!!! We done with Trump orange colored ass…so now we back to the gay shyt.

    This blog gives me the sads.
    It used to be so funny!!

    Babies are not born gay. We are born asexual. If allowed to develop normally we become heterosexual. It is only when children are molested, abused, or influenced by other external forces that we become gay or develop abnormal sexual fetishes.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Researchers say there is no genetic link to homosexuality which is a sexual behavior. Behaviors are learned.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Whether we like it or not, society has laws that govern our behavior. Should we be a society without laws?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    This is an old and tired argument. If you remove sexuality there is no homosexuality. By definition homosexuality means a sexual preference for the same sex.

  • Irony

    I don’t need anyone to tell me how to “act.” Is being homosexual breaking a law in this good ole boy country?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Only 6% of the population is gay. That makes heterosexuality the majority standard for the population.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Let me know when the video drops. Until then it is just hearsay.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Bullying is a normal part of growing up. It is normal in nature for the strong to weed out the weak. Have you ever seen puppies at play? They’re not really playing. They are exerting their dominance so the weaker puppies know who is boss.

  • Tynamight

    Hollywood loves a gay black male! They are non-offensive, non-threatening and soo soo much fun. *dripping w/ friggin’ sarcasm*

    I will not see this movie. Nothing about this movie seems interesting. What I will see is a fabulous black movie about a non-crack addicted black mom married to a non-pimped out black dad and the fun shenanigans of family life.

  • Tynamight

    Truth minus those mean ol’ little people.

  • S. Williams

    ok Sonny Corinthos is still kicking LOL

  • Well$$Well$$?

    I want to see this. Heard it was very good. Mahershala Ali is bae. ???

  • MoniquetheGeek

    I can support whatever I want to. And I particularly wanted to support this black cast! Y’all act like they only making black characters gay. Like white folk ain’t out here portraying gay characters.

  • Elevated Soul

    Sweetie this article is not about President Trump,so if you want it to be done,then stop talking about President Trump.

    For those who over-stand.This article is about the continuing assault on Black males,by those that support the gay agenda. Those that support that nonsense are trying to MAKE Black people accept it, by presenting it as normal behavior,when it’s anything but that.

  • pika12

    You said “usually”…does that mean you are admitting that some people were just born that way?

  • Elevated Soul

    There’s no such thing as a straight agenda because whether you want to admit it or not,heterosexuality is normal.

    A heterosexual would never see ” heterosexuality as an agenda”,especially when life can only be created through heterosexuality”.

    I mentioned Democrat because that is the political party that pushes and glorify the sin of homosexuality,surely you won’t deny that fact?The Democrats are the ones going around calling everyone “homophobic or even racist” when someone doesn’t support that nonsense.

    You can watch what you want to watch.You just need to grasp that everyone isn’t enamored with such nonsense especially when it’s being pushed on a community that already have enough issues to deal with.Some of us are most definitely not enamored with this being pushed on Black children.

    I gave no indication,that I fell under any bubble because, I don’t fall for anything. You need to over-stand the fact that “no one has to accept homosexuality” just because you do.

  • Elevated Soul

    Exactly!!!

  • BLACK *I*C*E*

    ***Sweetie this article is not about President Trump***

    Reading is fundamental!

    I said we are OFF of Trump and BACK to gay shyt.

    Homosexuality is gross and unnatural, God detest it. Those participating in homosexual acts , and practicing homosexuality will not inherit God’s Kindom, not my words Biblical facts,I agree! 1 Corinthians 6:9,10

  • kennedy campbell

    what i mean by that is people keep saying that the gay agenda is being shoved down their throats..when in reality programming with herteronormative lifestyles still dominate the media….some are acting as if we can’t see our reflections in media as well.

  • kennedy campbell

    i’ve read that. but advertise what exactly? the income to the gay/lesbian community?

  • maleorderside

    Yeah. I connected with this movie as a poor black kid who grew up in the hood. It was surreal.

    Roles displaying strength and character. Achievement, compassion, and accomplishment. Walking and standing tall, not BENT OVER or LAYING DOWN with the same sex for amusement, pleasure or money.

  • Elevated Soul

    Clearly you didn’t even grasp what you wrote.

  • JustRight13

    So it’s either they’re gay, drug addicts, sell drugs or ball players.

  • MookieFly

    Bending over or laying down for money? What da hell? What does that have to do with the film? What movie are you describing? None of that ish even happens in Moonlight. Im starting to think some of yall ladies are undercover cus self hate is real. Love ya’self

  • A D N

    Wow. I totally disagree. When black men were taken from their families in slavery, the family was destroyed. When the welfare system was introduced to allow women to join, the men were not allowed in the home so the female can benefit from the program; the family was destroyed. When men had to leave the home to look for work in other places, the family was destroyed. Drugs introduced in the communities destroyed the black family. Prison for small amount of weeeed destroyed the black family. What you are speaking of is another method used in today’s society to further separate the black family orchestrated based upon fear of strength which grows from unity in the household headed by the black man. However, the plan did not begin in recent years under Obama. And it will take more than Obama to undue centuries of harm caused in the black household, beginning with understanding the plan in still in works.

  • A D N

    And 94% either have a gay relative or close friends with a gay person. That is why the “gay agenda” is successful. Heterosexuals allow it.

  • A D N

    I agree with you from that perspective. Kids should not be exposed to sex period because they are impressionable and usually undeveloped to understand what it means.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    That’s all I’m saying! ?

  • NuBLOSSOM

    When you’re trying to teach and condition my children to think that this is normal, than yes, it has become my business. The legalizing of gay marriage unlocked Pandora’s box, now they will stop at nothing until they have corrupted the incoming generations. They are attacking and making example of everything that goes against their ideology.

  • MangoMama

    I saw the film. It is actually a good coming of age tale. It has great acting, especially Chiron (the teen). The actor who plays Black (adult Chiron) is too fine for words, lol

  • Coco

    Black folks love acting somebody is forcing black men to be gay.

  • Coco

    Maybe because gay black men exist wether you like it or not.
    Black folks stay acting homosexuality is the only sin in the world.

  • the guest

    THANK YOU!!!!

    White Hollywood loves to push and pimp stereotypes and realities they prefer (crackhead single mom, emasculated and effeminate gay black males, destitute, struggling) for black people.

    I can’t stand the white liberal Hollywood gay agenda against black people. Can’t stand it. It’s manipulative, destructive, and make no mistake very deliberate.

  • the guest

    Thank you for bringing the truth on this agenda. In my opinion, no black parents should have permitted their black male child to act in this movie.

  • Simone

    I’d never see this movie. It’s not my thing. But the writer, director and who did the screenplay are all Black men, so the “White liberal Hollywood gay agenda” may not be pushing this movie.

  • Mssugamoma

    Preach!

  • OrchidJones-Work for Money

    Amen

  • kennedy campbell

    i get the sense that you want us all to believe in the bible and its ways as you do? sure there is a push for acceptance. so why not just let the people that want to watch it accept it and enjoy it and for the rest change to one of the other 100k movies that continue to push heteronormativity.

  • kennedy campbell

    i also wont deny the fact that there are plenty of republicans who are gay and closeted. thats why i say don’t just say democrats. i get i can watch what i want. but what i’m asking you and not you peronally but the people…to grasp is that it’s just as easy for you to change the channel . if you believe heterosexuality is normal, keep on believing that and watch programming catered to what you like. but don’t tell us we can’t have what we like. for so long it wasn’t on tv in the theaters, in music,,etc and it’s there for those of us that enjoy it…you guys still dominate what you claim as normal so it’s not like you guys are lacking rightt? ..i don’t need to overstand that no one has to accept homosexuality…i’m gay i think i’ve been beat up enough while minding my own business….what i am saying is why is there a fight about the content…when again those of you don’t like it don’t watch and those of us that do then we have the few movies and channels that we have.

  • kennedy campbell

    true some of them are followers and we can say just as many lead their own but as for myself I’ve known since I was 4 years old that I like guys and this of course was well before you saw it on tv..well we didn’t even have tv… I can’t say that I personally followed someone or that my cousin who’s story closely resembles this one. in any case we have to be mindful that not everyone lives in the same bubble …and if these kids really want to be with the same sex who are we to be in their bedroom…we obviously don’t all share the same belief system

  • kennedy campbell

    thank you sandra for stating that. i wish you would post that so people will understand. i get the feeling people just think we pop out ready to sex and marry the opposite sex or the same in cases

  • Sean

    The comments on this post are partially responsible for down low black men. Who wants to be subjected to being not a real man, not normal, or dysfuntional because he likes men? We talk about white people assaulting black men, but much of the assault comes from black people, specifically black women. It’s sad. If you don’t want to see the movie, don’t see it. But stop being insulting, especially about topics you’ve taken no time to educate yourselves on.

  • Phillybruh

  • Cerebral Assassin

    Of course gay black men exist, but my point is how often does a ‘black film’ get support and recognition from Hollywood?

    First it was slavery, then drugs and now homosexuality… It’s not an accident that Hollywood only supports blacks in those roles. So many of our youth are being raised without a father and this is the best we can offer them in terms of how black men are depicted? The entertainment value isn’t worth the cost it has to our people. If your point is that something is better than nothing when it comes to black entertainment, then I respectfully disagree.

  • Storm’s Rage!

    He’s the actor that plays in Queen Sugar.

  • TheEmpowermentLeader

    Moonlight was a phenomenal movie. It didnt do well at the box office because it was blacklisted by many mainstream screens before it even had the chance for an audience. Not only that but I’m sure its polished and appropriate presentation of the non stereo type black gay male was too much to give a platform to…but Brokeback Mountain was herald! Anyway support this powerful piece of work!!!

  • Storm’s Rage!

    Huh? Sooooooo, what about all the homos that comes for good, loving households? With both parents present and loving all over them? I personally think people are born gay, unless ur ahss is in prison. That’s call Survivor’s Gay. You just doing what you have to just to survive. lol Homosexuality has existed since humans has existed, long before the world new about the bible and Christianity. This world is a jacked up place. Live and let live. I will agree with you Sandra on the DL dudes not telling women. I do believe women should have the right to know if a man likes other men. And if she wants to be with him at that point, its HER choice. But, to say its a product of a dysfunctional household, thats crazy. So, how do we account for straight people, bc there’s a lot of straight men and women that comes for dysfunctional households. lol

  • Storm’s Rage!

    I think 99% of people thats born gay. And then you have the 1% thats doing it to survive.

  • Coco

    So gay people stories shouldn’t be told because you don’t like it? People should stop expecting the media to educate their children. Gay people have been around for long time without their stories being told on TV, that didn’t stop other people from being gay.

  • Courtney Wheeler

    these comments have nothing to do with the lack of courage down low men display. stop deflecting. People are free to say what they like. You must develop thicker skin. being different is hard

  • Sean

    Courtney, I’m going to respectfully disagree with you. If you put these comments in the context of them coming from a mom, a dad, sister, “friends”, etc and not the general public, it becomes a bigger issue. I’m not deflecting because this is not an issue that I have. What I am saying is that there is often a choice to be made between being accepted by those close to an individual and being completely alone in the world. That’s a difficult choice that a lot of people won’t or choose not to understand because they haven’t lived it.

    This is an independent movie. It is a coming of age movie. Not about sex but about friendship. I just wish people would see a movie before they criticize a movie. It has nothing to do about an assault of black male hood. It actually shows strength in black male hood. It most importantly illustrates what happens when people are not true to themselves by trying to conform to machoism sometime acting out by sell drugs, being promiscuous and hurting people. There is NO Down Low elements in this film. Great film especially for black moms and dads to see. It just might make a difference in their childrearing. Just maybe.
