DIALOGUE AND DISCUSSION ON EDUCATION, ENVIRONMENT AND RACE
I can not say that I really knew much about Amos and Andy. I heard it in conversation a few times other than that I can not claim to know much else about the show. The documentary was very interesting and shows that there can be more to something than what one sees on its surface. The thing that really surprises me is that in the year 2015, entertainers are doing things now that one could think is a negative depiction. Does the NAACP not have the same influence on the entertainment industry now or is it something else that seems to have handcuffed that organization?
These are the kind of questions that must be addressed in class or in convention.
I watched three different shows or commercials where this particular information may apply. One featured Michelle Obama with two so called white male actors dressed as women acting silly. Madera which features Tyler Perry is another movie where a male actor was dressed as a woman that made me think about this information. Last I recently watched a commercial that featured Lebron James and the same exact thing was going on as I stated, I will have to watch the Amos and Andy show in order to get an understanding of this information.
