Say What? The Skanky Black Men in “For Colored Girls”

4) The brother on the down low
This is the smooth brother married to Janet Jackson’s character. He is emasculated by the fact that she is successful and he is not (almost none of the black men in this film have their own money). Keeping with the thieving black man theme, he takes a massive amount of money out of Janet’s account without telling her. In return for the money he’s stolen, he gives her the gift of HIV, since it’s clear that black men on the down low are single-handedly responsible for every HIV case in the history of the entire world (just ask Oprah). Janet’s character is evil toward everyone she meets for the entire film, but of course this is because of the terrible black man she has at home, it can’t be just because she’s a jerk.
