If you're interested in a satirical book about spies, community, and integration during the late 1960s-70s then my discussion of The Spook Who Sat By the Door is for you. Written by Sam Greenlee in the 60s, the book offers a lot of commentary on the self-serving nature of liberal politicians and activists, institutional racism, and the assimilation dreams of the Black bourgeoisie.

A review of the movie "Love & Basketball", a decent movie with a problematic love story that is absolute trash but gets a pass. The odds are that you’ve already seen "Love & Basketball". I’d like your perspective if you agree with my take on the movie. But I also want all the smoke if you disagree with my assessment.
