“You don’t have to be a cartoon of a black person to find acceptance in the black community. In fact it’s going to work against you. You’re not going to be able to make a connection to the culture, if you can’t make a connection to the people. If you do you will be fine, if you don’t you will be a damn wigger” – Bill Adler music journalist and critic who specializes in hip-hop
With all the talk about Blackface, ‘Wigger Please’ a documentary feature film chronicling the cultural stereotypes of white Americans embracing hip hop culture, seems to be a thoughtful inquiry into this racial quagmire and my extend a bridge and a guide for the benign yet confused people trying to express their love for Black culture.
Currently in production, the filmmakers are interviewing rappers, actors, artists and writers who have had their political or personal perspectives influenced by their experiences with hip hop or black culture.
‘Wigger Please’ features Bill Adler, Baje One, Baba Israel, Tom Breihan, Kevin Coval, GQ, JQ, Jus Rhyme, Jim Mahfood, Jason Tanz, Erik Weiner, andTim Wise.
