The Black Men Can’t Jump In Hollywood podcast is a unique show with a unique take on The Culture and Hollywood. It is a podcast that solely reviews films with leading actors of color and analyzes them in the context of race and Hollywood’s diversity issues. And it’s all done with a comedic slant.
The host are comedians Jonathan Braylock, Jerah Milligan, and James III. They review everything both old a new. From instant classics like Judas and The Black Messiah to the not-so classic like Vampires vs. The Bronx, the pod has you covered. Well connected, the pod also does interviews. They’ve had guest including Keegan Michael Key, Phoebe Robinson and Langston Kerman.
But what might be the best aspect of the pod is their very unique rating system. Every film they discuss gets one of three ratings. A Black Fist – The film furthers the cause of helping black talent lead projects and get further work. A White Palm – The film held the race back and harmed an actor’s career. Nothing – If the film is just bad and/or contributed nothing to society.
The show has been going since the summer of 2015 and (as of this writing) is at nearly 300 episodes recorded. And all that excellent work has not gone unnoticed. BMCJ is an iTunes Editor’s Choice podcast and has reached #2 on the iTunes Film/TV charts. BMCJ has also been covered by multiple websites including Huffington Post, Splitsider, Salon, The Daily Dot, and more.
A podcast dedicated to shinning the spotlight on black-led films. A podcast hosted by three smart and hilarious black men. Black Men Can’t Hump in Hollywood is definitely repping for The Culture.
