Filmmaker Kevin J. Williams has hit on a very important sociopolitical issue: Why are there so few African-American Republicans, particularly in urban areas? He supports his argument for why most of the black population leaned further left over the course of the 20th century, yet Fear of a Black Republican feels incredibly outdated beyond the premise. For example, he searches for black GOP faithful at George Bush’s second inauguration and discusses his thesis with the 2008 Republican nominees. There’s no post-Obama focus, or even a mention of Herman Cain or firebrand Tea Party Republican Allen West. Williams’ question is in the right place, and he gets a lot of interview access for a homemade film, but it needs to be updated to reflect a more-current political landscape.
