    LOL AV, I put that more for rhetorical, literary effect. Basically, shit sucks all over.

    Yeah, true, but who ever said it was? Weren't most black Brits complaining about the lack of opportunities?

    Scratch another dumbass thing Toure says off the list.

    It appears that UK filmmakers and actors of color have to deal with the same stereotypes and lack of diverse storytelling that we do here in the US.

    Its great that these talented people are even given the opportunity to work, but as Touré famously said: “Drug dealers also create jobs."

    Sure this is a good movie...but is anyone else noticing the trend in the UK with Black films?..... "youth and their struggles with poverty, drugs and gang culture"

    Guess grass ain't always greener now is it
