RIP Rudy Ray Moore
My all-honky movie group once screened the hustlin' multi-hyphenate's Dolemite (1975), with his inimitable brand of very slo-mo kung fu. I'm not sure we knew what hit us. But Moore's stand-up comedy albums were hugely popular beyond the blaxploitation era of the movie, and if you didn't like it, well, to quote the pimpin' Dolemite, "you no-business, born insecure, jock-jawed motha fuckas" could just shove it.
