John Singleton directed a movie at age 23, one year after graduating from the very important USC School of Cinematic Arts titled "Boyz in the Hood.

For a white guy with her own problems in 1991, this movie described a lot of what happened in Black Neighborhoods, specifically in a Los Angeles neighborhood:
John Singleton's portrayal of social problems in inner-city Los Angeles takes the form of a tale of three friends growing up together 'in the 'hood.' Half-brothers Doughboy and Ricky Baker are foils for each other's personality, presenting very different approaches to the tough lives they face. Ricky is the 'All-American' athlete, looking to win a football scholarship to USC and seeks salvation through sports, while 'Dough' succumbs to the violence, alcohol, and crime surrounding him in his environment, but maintains a strong sense of pride and code of honor. Between these two is their friend Tre, who is lucky to have a father, 'Furious' Styles, to teach him to have the strength of character to do what is right and to always take responsibility for his actions.

It is still an important movie and while it may be dated, take a chance a watch a VERY thoughtful movie directed by this important African-American taken way too soon by a fatal stroke.

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. Let him forget there is such a thing as war. If the Government is inefficient, top-heavy, and tax-mad, better it is all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag.
