Playing Games

In a roundtable interview with the Washington Post and others, an interviewer asked Brown how he was able to write from a woman’s perspective. He said the characters were based off of women he knew.

I combined my ex-girlfriend with my sister and pretty much used their voice in their relationships and by observing the relationships that I was in.

Another interviewer asked Brown if he was concerned about perpetuating stereotypes that black couples played games in relationships.

As far as the stereotypes, my parents have been married for 50 years and I see visual game playing. In every relationship, especially in the early stages of the relationship, there is a power struggle or game playing. I think that this [movie] is an example of relationships in general, not just about women. I think women and men play games to show that they have control and who “wears the pants.”
