Spot the dummy!
A struggling black TV executive is ordered by his boss to come up with a hot new TV show or be fired. Together with his pretty assistant, he creates a show featuring black-face painted singing minstrels. The show is an immediate and controversial success, which of course creates problems of its own. The film is a look at Spike Lee's opinion of exploitation of black culture by white television, and features a lot of ''gangsta'' rap.|
