"The black groups that boycott certain films would do better to get the money together to make the films they want to see, or stay in church and leave us to our work"

- Richard Pryor

About this Quote

In this quote, Richard Pryor is dealing with the issue of black groups boycotting specific films. He suggests that rather of boycotting, these groups need to come together and use their resources to develop the movies they want to see. This implies that by taking action and being proactive, they can have a greater effect on the representation of black individuals in the film industry. Pryor also mentions staying in church, which could be analyzed as a call to concentrate on more important matters and leave the movie industry to do its own work. In general, Pryor is advocating for taking action and creating modification rather than simply objecting and expecting others to do it for them.
