Permit Patty and Friends & Preview to Episode 134

July 18, 2018

This week on Black on Black Cinema, the guys return to preview the next episode. They will break their one rule and do a second film this year by the infamous director, Tyler Perry. The 2018 film about a woman scorned, Acrimony, stars Taraji P. Henson. The random topic of the week is all about the new precedent of white people calling the police on Black people for just living their lives. We've seen the rise of the Permit Patti and now even Flagrant Freddie. While the Internet nicknames are hilarious, the root of the issue is far more terrifying. Dealing with a sense of privilege, payback, arrogance, and even pure malice is what the issue is truly about. The guys give their thoughts on it.
