Stereotype: Angry Black Man

If you watch any cop movie from the 70s and 80s, they all had the loud angry black captain. That was the African-American pacifier – you’re in charge but your just one scream away from full hypertension. Well, unfortunately, Halo reached back to Starsky & Hutch in and brought out Sgt. Johnson.  Cigar-chomping, swearing and grizzled-voiced, Johnson is the ultimate angry black man. While he is not terrible, Johnson could have been more multifaceted rather than one dimensional and predictable.
