Why did Stevie choose to use the word "but" in that first line? He could've just as easily said "and she is sho 'nuff pretty" to convey the meaning. 
But he implies that it's incongruous to be both black and pretty. This has bothered me for quite a while.




Written, I'd reckon, not as himself, but as a character who thinks exactly that.

My Better Half™ noticed that there's a history of "don't look the white man in the eyes" that might have had something to do with the plot. I agree, but missed it until she brought it up.
Me, I think he was looking for something to use as the spine of his new film and then...that song that the guy sang (not spoiling the plot by naming it) came on. Inspiration! It didn't redefine cinema as we know it, but it was pretty, interesting, and a good day at the real, big, Atmos cinema. Not a small screen film by any means.
 
Please to be pm’ing me the song title. Thank you. {#Propeller}

And yes, it was awesome on the big screen.
