All the little Black girls know that the best part of the iconic, classic Bring It On movie was watching Gabrielle Union and her elite cheerleading squad “The Clovers.” They were prettier, they were better and even morally superior in the sense that, after a while, they were still willing to treat the Toros with kindness. Even after they stole from them.

Honestly, the movie could have been a foreshadowing and a history lesson about the ways in which White people have co-opted the talents, crafts, ideas and traditions of Black folks.

It was a game-changer. And thankfully, The Clovers deservedly took home first place. It wasn’t the type of movie to reward the Toros, simply because they were White. Still, it was their story that was centered.

There have been a few Bring It On sequels. One with a predominately minority cast—complete with Solange Knowles as the lead.

But recently, someone suggested a remake that features Union, the head cheerleader for The Clovers coaching the next generation, led by Ryan Destiny—who many have called the next Union. Check out the concept and the reaction to it on the following pages.
