Found this lil piece of interestingness (no its not a real word) over @ Okayplayer.com
"Film buffs will be excited for the new documentary, Whitewash, which we've mentioned before on OKP. The doc explores race in America through the struggles and history of black surfers, and is narrated by Ben Harper and Black Thought. The movie also features music by The Roots and Erykah Badu. Watch the full trailer above. Still in the indie-film faze, you can only see this flick at exclusive screenings in NYC"
A topic seldom covered...
No matter what you do if you are doing anything untypical of the stereo type placed on black people someone will accuse you of being "White"
Being different isnt "White" is being counter what is expected
which is exceptional
I have decided 2 do a song about it on the "Def Sound is Anything" album
Music and film that matters.
