If I Wuz Yo Girl

The narrator at the outset of this video feature by Chicagoan Coquie Hughes promises a story about “real life, real people, real issues.” What we get is a story about troubled lesbian relationships that's shrill in tone and clueless in execution. Outside of some raunchy girl talk and tough attitude that may be true to the African-American “gyrl” milieu, Hughes offers only Jerry Springer situations in which men are sexist abusers and women are tantrum throwers, then abruptly terminates the mess with a sanctimonious public service announcement about domestic violence. 75 min.
