The sequel to Stomp the Yard, Stomp the Yard: Homecoming, is coming to DVD September 21st, and I can’t help but wonder if it wouldn’t have gone straight to DVD had they gone with the more obvious title, Stepbrothers. All that aside, in this clip, Columbus Short gives one of the most inspirational performances in a film about fraternity step dancing I have ever seen. It would make a worthy edition to the Inspirational Movie Speeches compilation .
We fight. WE FIGHT. When the chips are down, we fight. If you could stand together right here, right now, as a family? Ain’t nothin stoppin us. If you could have enough courage to look past what’s wrong, and see the value in what’s right? Win or lose, we win.
TODAY… IS OUR.. INDEPEN DANCE DAY! FREEEEEDOOOOMMM! NOW LET’S GO GREASE THE TREADS OF OUR TANKS WITH THE BASTARDS’ JHERI CURL! (*does head spin, ices bro*) I don’t know how black fraternities do it, but their version of date rape sure seems to involve a lot of complex foreplay. Wait a second, is that a 20-year-old black dude wearing a Grateful Dead shirt? Is that cool again? I’m so confused right now.
