Young black college student, decided to hold weekend party while his parents were away. After a rollicking time, he and his buddies were cleaning up when they found a teenage white girl in one of the bedrooms face down in a pool of vomit.
Who is she? She had no purse, no I.D., but she was still breathing. It was 2 am. What to do? Call 911? Would the cops believe these black kids, a speck in this white upper-class neighborhood, did not drug her? Knew she was a minor yet allowed her in? Their fingerprints were all over her body; could they be accused of assault? Could this be the end of their college life as they had envisaged?
The young black “brothers” were about to do the AQUA BOOGIE (Parliament Funkadelic). Black men, “living in America” (James Brown). Walking that “fine line” of believability.
What did happen to those young black college students?
Even though I made up the story, the elements are real, and can be found in a new cinematic production carrying the name EMERGENCY.
You may come away with the pop-ups in your head, IS AMERICA IN AN EMERGENCY? IS THIS REALLY THE HOME OF THE BRAVE and LAND OF THE FREE?
Start practicing the Aqua Boogie,… some of us may need it, to get to “the promised land”. (Rev, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.)
