‘Us’ Vs Them

I saw Jordan Peele‘s new movie “Us” the other day, and then I looked up the Rotten Tomatoes audience scores online–and I was shocked to see a bunch of trolls had panned it! Then I checked the Rotten Tomatoes audience scores for a bunch of other black movies and I began to notice a trend. So I wrote this essay for the Grio.

BTW, I have a new novel coming out called “Around Harvard Square” that you should check out, and I’ll be reading from it at the Voracious Reader in Larchmont, NY on Friday, March 29 at 7 p.m. I hope I see you there!
