It was just a good movie. Get over it. Or more appropriately, get over yourself.
What was? Do you mean "Black Panther"? A classic example of popularity as an inverse measurement of quality. .
I understood the black critic's position on "Green Book" when it was pointed out, but I didn't see it at the time. As a white, non American, I don't always see the racial elements in Hollywood films. That doesn't mean they ain't there.
Black American jobs in the movies? Yep, playing racial stereotypes. shoeshine, maids, waiters, or 'Stepn Fetchit's 'coon' type buffoon.
