This has not been a good year for black men who are really really dark complexion wise.

He seemed to be a true mack daddy.

R.I.P.

I was lucky enough to meet him at a screening in L.A. last year. He signed my Human Tornado DVD after making it crystal clear that I had bought it from him and that I didn't just bring it in off the street. Very funny guy. He told a lot of jokes that had the crowd rolling.

R.I.F.P. (Rest in Funky Peace)

Ugh, damn. It was so sad to return to the country this week to hear about his passing - I just watched Human Tornado for the first time a few weeks ago. Dolemite's been in constant rotation for years, though. Damn.

I posted my analysis of the Dolemite trailer over here in tribute, in case anyone wants to look:
