Nina Simone - Why? (The King of Love Is Dead)
Peace out, Mandela
i think i have to just stop reading reviews of black films altogether. one review of fruitvale station said ryan coogler omitted some information and wanted to make oscar grant sympathetic. god forbid you have sympathy for a man murdered in cold blood then his murderer only serves 8 months in a county jail. then there’s all the white reviewers/interviewers trying to make 12 years a slave “a universal experience” and trying to remove racism/race from a movie about slavery! jesus christ.
they burnt them down. BURNT THEM DOWN. You see something and you decide that since it aint what you do you destroy it. FUCK YOU white people. And that white supremacist Christianity of yours!
Because there really really REALLY hasn’t. stop yakking on and on about how your film stands out cause it aint a slavery film. LOTSSSSSS of black films aint slavery films.
and there’s only been one by a black person. i can’t remember if roots was directed by a black person or not. there was one interview i read about 12 years, i think in the guardian, and he was like oh its been too many slavery films. how ironic he says this when a black director makes one. he wasn’t tired of them when spielberg and tarantino made them. and how many holocaust films are there? slavery went on for hundreds of years there are many stories to be told.
and why not post white? How about striving for THAT?
