      HA!!!

      I’m a pomegranate. I hope you can enjoy this. It made me really emotional.

    Ha. Good looking out. I will watch it next year along with all the other slave films. When all the ‘opinions’ have faded.

      Good luck. By next year there will be a whole new crop of slave films. Past and present.

      Which brings me to something I saw in 12 Years. That Alfre Woodard has absolutely no shame. Not only is she a wench in real life she has no heartburn playing one in every other movie she’s in. It makes me ill that someone can take so much pride in being a fucking bed warmer. The star of the movie also makes my stomach churn. This is why I limit my exposure to Hollywood as much as I can and still stay informed.

        Yeah. And I read about the Holly hood gang wanting to remake Roots. They want to be the owner of the slave narrative and no one can stop them. Completely erase their hand and foot in it.
        “She is a wench in real life’. You have been spying on her? No need to answer, I do not even know who she is.

        Yeah Alfre Woodard is really something else. I think she gets a kick out of playing roles like this. It hits so close to home for her. Much like Samuel L. Jackson played a boot-licking,shucking and jiving Uncle Tom in Django Unchained. He played it do well because that’s who HE really is. Actors like Samuel and Alfre shouldn’t get Oscar nominations for roles that come so naturally to them. It’s like giving Jamie Foxx an Oscar for playing a homosexual. Oops!! Did I say that out loud? My bad!
        Anyway,the film was very well acted. And I liked a lot of the cinematography. Although the brutality was hard to watch at times. I hate seeing sistas raped by beasts like that! And beatings and almost lynching was unbearable. But it is a reality of what our ancestors endured. But of course it was worse than what the film showed. I was talking to a sista about this film recently. She said whites love slavery theater. She said they get off on seeing us beaten,raped,lynched and degraded. Which is why this film is being praised so much. What do you think? Does she have a point!

          I think they really do get a kick out of seeing this. Let’s call it “racism porn” and go with that.

          In case you didn’t know the lead actor also has a white wife. To me it makes the message conflicted and confusing. Either that or they believe we have overcome.

          • Kushite Prince November 9, 2013 at 7:35 PM #

            Racism porn has a nice ring to hit.lol But I think you’re right,they truly get off on our pain and suffering. Which reminds me,have you seen Goodbye Uncle Tom? It’s an old film made in 1971 about slavery. It was by an Italian filmmaker. It was actually banned in the US for its horrific brutality. You can find it on YouTube I believe. It makes Roots look like a sitcom.

              I tried to watch that film about 5 or 6 times and I can’t do it. My mental state would take a hit that would probably make me dangerous.

              • Kushite Prince November 10, 2013 at 2:47 PM #

                I know what you mean. It’s hard to watch straight through. I stopped it a few times. There were scenes that messed with my head. Hard to get some of those images out of my mind. You have to be in a certain type of mood to watch that film. But I will say it’s not a film you ever forget.

                • hunglikejesus November 10, 2013 at 2:55 PM #

                  Yeah, I won’t be watching and I think that’s best for all involved.

    I have seen the film and I cried. One of my friends took me to see the film for my birthday. We were emotional.

    • hunglikejesus November 11, 2013 at 8:54 PM #

      It pissed me off and what pissed me off more than anything……..guess.

  5. mary burrell November 11, 2013 at 8:54 PM #

    I thought about you, I wondered if something like this would upset you. I thought that this film would not be good for you, I bothered me for days and made me depressed.

    • hunglikejesus November 11, 2013 at 8:56 PM #

      I don’t get depressed by these types of films but they do make a dangerous person. Meaning: they really irk me.
