A movie about dancing colored people will surely bring out the “gangs”. Holy shit:
Oh of course not, it has NOTHING to do with race. No, you just don't want to attract "that audience". Besides, everyone knows anything young and black = gang violence.
Fearful of attracting more gang violence to its movie theaters, Springfield's Kerasotes Theatres will not open "Stomp the Yard," a film about black college students in a dancing competition.
Kerasotes Theatres' company chairman and CEO Tony Kerasotes called the decision a safety consideration in the wake of a Christmas Day shooting at the chain's Parkway Pointe location.
"I chose to err on the side of caution and in the interest of safety and chose not to open the film in Springfield this week," Kerasotes said Wednesday. "I was fearful the movie could become the occasion for more gang violence, because I felt certain it would draw that audience."
Asked if the decision was a question of race, Kerasotes said: "You could phrase the question that way, but to me, it's a question of gangs. It's about gangs. It's not about race."
