  1. Fake News: the idea this is the biggest movie of all-time is laughable. There aren’t that many black people in the history of the world.

    • JCGrantatAC your comment is like that one weird kid in high school who does dumb stuff to get attention. But hey any attention is good attention….so I’ve heard.

    • This movie has made a lot of money, I think that says it all. It’s a good movie. Obviously not everyone is going to like it. There is no way that everyone will like the same thing. But my question is, what is it that bothers you so much. Is it that it made a lot of money than any other movies or is it that it sucks or is it that the majority of the actors are blacks? Before you answer these questions. Do you ever hear any African Americans talk with so much anger about a movie with predominantly white casts in it. For many years blacks have been told that their movies do not sell. For once they have proven that it is not true. They have every right to rejoice because for years they have been watching movies acted by whites without any complaints. So why is it an issue when the table is turned? It’s a MOVIE..

    • Neneh Diminga: The problem is that it’s being falsely propped up. I’m tired of seeing black people being infantilized.

  2. the movie is taking advantage of black people giving them false hope again. Meanwhile in AFRICA …

  3. If they want some African art then they should have went to South Africa, Ghana, Ethiopia, Uganda, or Madagascar even. Like, if the video production did this then they are unprofessional and that artist deserves money from the production crew not the artist.

  4. Her paintings are not the reasons I listen to the song sorry. I did not notice her art until saw the suing title.

  5. Why you gotta hate? You not even talking about the movie you’re talking about a song man. For God sakes can you people find some other race to hate on. Smh

  6. Never seen this woman artwork in my life and I have seen other artists use these same symbols on clothing and paintings
