I found out about this website from the guest speaker, Malcolm D. Lee, writer/director of The Best Man and Best Man Holiday on WBLS "Open Line" Sunday morning talk show. I was so excited to learn about "cast and crew of color.org" and fortunately was linked to "dvrepublic.org"! I'm so excited to really commit myself to what I love and do best, write and produce stories of content! Thank you for being the spark that have reignited the flame inside of me!
When a Caribbean-born South Asian man is roughed up on the street because he "looks like a Arab", his American-born son is outraged. Ignoring his parent's advice to let it go, this young man dresses up in traditional Arabic dress and walks the street as a kind of shark bait for bigots. This politicized Kung Fu film raises issues of racial profiling and vigilantism.
