Most recently, I’ve watched a few good documentaries: Anita: Speaking Truth to Power, What Happened, Miss Simone? And, Little White Lie. After watching Anita, I was pissed. On one hand, I appreciate her sacrificing herself and giving workplace sexual harassment and gender equality a platform. On the other hand, there has been little progress. I’ll reserve my rant for another day... Nina Simone’s documentary was sad. Although she was a musical genius she was physically abused and suffered with mental illness most of her life. Last but not least is Little White Lie. Errrr, let me first say that sometimes…I can’t locate my empathy switch and can be... ... ...MEAN. This particular documentary was peculiar and sometimes humorous because I knew she was a black as soon as I saw her but her and her family took a while before they came to terms… My uber brief summaries of not only Little White Lie but all of these documentaries are mild so I encourage you to watch for yourself.
Overall, the real meaning of this post is to judge those of you who have not hopped on the Netflix bandwagon. Netflix will make you addicted to shows you didn’t know you would like( House of Cards, Orange Is the New Black and most recently, The 100). Suck it cable TV!
