Take your family to "Red Tails". See how Americans fought for our country's freedom while protecting each other.

If they made Red Tails look older, like actually set in its time I'd take it seriously. But it looks all up to date..I can't.

Just saw a trailer for the movie "Red Tails". Looks pretty legit.


Maybe ignorant is a better word for these three tweets below ...

Bill So Hard @PimpBillClinton
Is Red Tails fictional? Because the black guy worried about fathers getting back to their children is confusing me.
Gourmet Spud @gourmetspud
"What should we call this movie?" "How about Soul Plane?" "It's taken." "Alright, let's go with Red Tails..."
Eric 🏳️‍🌈 @trem2303
I'm not racist by saying red tails looks fucking stupid, am I?


They must indeed have their say . . .

@EichEyeEich the real question is who knew red tails was about the tuskegee airmen ?
JeanJak D'Ayiti @jeanjak
DYK only living member of Tuskegee Airmen is Haitian-born Raymond Cassagnol? Was 1 of handful of Haitians recruited for prgrm. RED TAILS?!
