So, we all know that Love Jones is the best Black Love story our generation has ever seen right? The same can be said for Coming to America vs. Boomerang. Boomerang was great but better than Coming to America? In the words of Lisa in that epic closing scene – “Nahhhhhh.” Well, some would beg to differ. That’s why, to wrap up the biggest and Blackest Black History Month in history, the incredible team at Black&Sexy.TV will be hosting the G.O.A.T. (Greatest of All Times) Debate on February 28, 6pm Pacific Time. That’s 9pm for us on the East Coast and about 2am/02:00 for all of you Brits. For more info go to battleofthegoats.com.
We’ll be tuning in with popcorn and mini-creme brulée cheesecakes in hand. But to get the fight jump-started a little early, Bae and I weighed in with our own little pre-debate debate.
