I Ain’t Scared of You

I Ain’t Scared of You: A Tribute to Bernie Mac (2011) is a humorous documentary directed by Robert Small about comedian Bernie Mac, a man who embodied rugged individualism and achieved the quintessential American Dream despite numerous obstacles and personal tragedies.

Life Lesson:

Love yourself enough to be the person you want to become.

Movie Scene:

Comedian D. L. Hughley, speaking at the funeral service: “It is true that only the good die young. Fifty years is not enough time. The thing that I can say about Bernie is this: The hardest thing for a black man to do is to be an individual, is to stand on your own and to say what you mean and to not be influenced by anybody, to make your own mind up and your own way. And Bernie Mac was a man, believe me when I tell you. He stood on his own. He said what he believed. He used to always say, ‘I don’t care if you like me, I like me.'”
