Host Deardra Shuler features filmmaker Al Greeze on Topically Yours to talk about his film Frustrated. Based on the article "Blame it on Rio," written by William Jelani Cobb (a professor of history at Atlanta's Spelman College), featured in Essence Magazine, the filmmaker traveled to Brazil to interview Black men about their opinion on Cobb's primarily negative depiction. The article suggested black men travel to Brazil in droves to vacation and have sex with Brazilian prostitutes.
