But I'm sure someone will fill me in on the exploits of the real nation of Islam, dead eye aim, bowtie wearing, one man muscle squad Brother Mouzone

Some people seem to forget that in their attempt to gain some sort of aficionado props, one is watching a show not a documentary.

So it doesn't matter if the characters are real or outlandish as long as the shit is entertaining.
