Is "Good Hair" Not Connecting With Audiences?

Chris Rock's documentary "Good Hair" has received a pretty heavy media blitz over the the last month, but after 2 weeks at the box office admittedly in a limited number of theatres, the movie has generated less that $1.8 million in receipts and only $437,000 over the weekend. It appears that this is a topic that black people just don't have an interest in despite Rock making the rounds on every show imaginable to laugh about the texture of hair. Glad to see that black folks just won't fall for any form of entertainment.

Please take a moment to check out my documentary film BLACK HAIR

It is free at youtube. 6 parts including an update from London, England.

It explores the Korean Take-over of the Black Beauty Supply and Hair biz..

The current situation makes it hard to believe that Madame C.J. Walker once ran the whole thing.

I am not a hater, I am a motivator.

Plus I am a White guy who stumbled upon this, and felt it was so wrong I had to make a film about it.

self-funded film, made from the heart.

Can it be taken back?
