1. At least it's not a Virginia politician in the starring role.

2. The Root didn't pull any punches.

From the article:
On Friday, social media let out a collective ‘wtf??’ after a trailer for an upcoming movie went viral: a white bartender disguises his voice as a stereotypical black woman’s to get the radio host job he couldn’t as a white man. They named the movie Loqueesha and I wish I was making this shit up but yet here we are.

The main character (played by Jeremy Saville who also wrote/directed) is a family man who needs to pull in some extra cash to secure bribes and falsify admissions applications send his son to an expensive private school for the ‘gifted’. One day, while watching some Jerry Springer-type circus of ig’nant black folks on TV, he thinks out loud, “That’s who needs their own show; if I were a black woman it’d be perfect.”

4. n/s

We've gone from Get Out, Sorry To Bother You, Crazy Rich Asians, Black Panther, Star Wars Casts that are super diverse . . .

To this shit in just a few short years?

Really? They made this movie in the 80's - it was called Soul Man. I suspect this won't attack the stereotypes the way that did.
