There have been much debate and commentary about the role Halle Berry played in Monsters Ball. There was much criticism for Denzel getting recognized for playing a corrupt,pimped-out police officer in 'Training Day' as well, although his role as Malcolm X was stellar. 

These unfavorable reviews are not without warranted objections.Hollywood, has experienced the gracious acting of luminaries such as Morgan Freeman, Danny Glover,Cicely Tyson and other legends, but films like 'Precious,The Help, Training Day, and Monster's Ball are scripted to bind minorities to a stereotype.

Tune in....It's real talk!
