02.27.06Alamo Downtown Alamo's Soul Cinema program continues with this story about how some Senator's poll results forces him to call racism on the CIA which in turn forces them to institute some sort of affirmative action program for agents. Only one brother makes it through the rigorous training program just to be put in charge of running the copy machine. So out of the blue, he quits, moves back to Chicago, and starts training street gangs to become a guerilla army and overthrow the country to show Whitey that they mean business. Most of the best parts are in that first half hour that takes place in the CIA. After that it gets pretty long but still has a few notable notes that made it enjoyable... especially for a buck.
