In Living Color on the Big Screen. What can be said about the Black man of God? In comedies a lot has been said for many years. Woman chasers, money hungry, phony practitioners of faith chasing after your money and your spouse so that he can by a Cadillac no doubt. InThe Rev. DoWrong Ain't Right, those stereotypes are played to the hilt, but is there salvation in the end?
