On the other hand, Everlee says Chris' film started great conversations with her white friends. "My co-worker asked me questions that she hadn't felt comfortable asking before. And I was able to ask her questions also, so it created a good dialogue," she says. "For that reason alone, I think people should see the documentary."
Chris says that was the goal. "My first intent is always to make people laugh, but at the same time, put a little Oprah in there. Put a little information in there ... a little positivity," he says. "It's not important what's on top of your head—it's important what's inside
of your head. That is the theme of the movie."
