The Movie Industry Blows It, Again

My kids love movies.  Rosie, who is visually very astute, really loves movies.  Finding films I'm excited about showing her is challenging, though. Aside from overall message, level of sexism, amount of violence, I am always searching for films in which she can see herself.  Images of strong, intelligent, beautiful black girls are few and far between.

Rosie's not the only one feeling the sting of a highly monochromatic movie industry.  Here's a great youtube video about 20th Century Fox's recently released Dragonball.
