It was too bad that the NAACP and CORE took offense to the movies that were being made for the black population. I enjoyed watching those movies that showed the real side of ghetto life: some real, some make believe and some not so real. But still, to kill a dream, and that's what they did, was to take away others enjoyment of watching their own race in films.
