Harlem Nights 1989
An absolutely great film.
» Critics hated this film. A prime example of white people not understanding a thing, so they shit all over the thing, point to it, and call it crap. Eddie was so upset by the critical failure, he didn’t watch the movie for years. He appreciates it now for what it is, but can you imagine working so hard on something you love with people you admire, putting it out in the world and then having it trashed?
This movie is amazing. It’s hilarious. One of Eddie Murphy’s best. The writing is on point. The direction is on point. It’s a cult classic in the black community, because we know gold when we see it.
If you haven’t seen Harlem Nights get your life and get it done.
THAT IS LITERALLY WHAT ANY SCHOOL HEALTH CLASS WOULD TELL YOU TO DO.
So she’s getting punished for doing the right thing? She should have let her friend drive drunk? Should she have let her friend kill herself in an auto accident?
Reblogged it before and i’ll fucking reblog it again.
glad bhs isnt like this
WAIT I KNOW HER WTF?
THIS IS FUCKING BULLSHIT
THIS IS HOW YOU GET KIDS KILLED
This is bothersome not only because she’s being punished for doing the right thing, but ultimately because the school is way outside of their juristdiction in punishing her for something she did on her own time, off school property, not using school resources. This is a gross and egregious misappropriation of in loco parentis. Their zero-tolerance policy on drugs and alcohol (like all zero-tolerance policies) is utter shit - how many kids at that school violate it constantly - and this young woman wasn’t drinking, just picking up a friend.
An argument could be made that she could have notified an adult to go with her, but with the school’s policy I wonder if that would have even made a difference?
