Black History Month on HBO

The funniest thing I've seen on HBO this February has to be their selection of movies commemorating Black History Month. In an attempt to celebrate African-American culture, they show that the network is whiter than tofu.

The month is almost over, but you can still catch the nature documentary, "Snakes on a Plane" or "The Shawshank Redemption," a romantic comedy set in prison.

Now, what being in jail or trapped in a plane with snakes has to do with being black, I haven't a clue. And the last time I checked, Tim Robbins was Samoan.

Worse, HBO also aired "The Wiz," which is weird since its star, Michael Jackson, isn't even black — though he was considerably blacker then.

And in between "Sex and the City" reruns, they aired "The Last King of Scotland," featuring a black man as a homicidal dictator who may have eaten his enemies. As someone who engages in cannibalism from time to time, I reject the film's small minded and frankly judgmental approach to what some consider to be a healthy diet. It's better than Atkins, but without the bad breath.

What I'm saying is I just don't get their choices, but then I didn't get it when Miranda chose to move to Brooklyn with Steve.

And, yes I am married — to a woman.

And, if you don't believe me, then you sir are worse than Hitler.
