Just what "America" needs: Some more fuel added to the 500 year old flames we've already been treading and continue to tread through. You're getting a profound "No Thanks" from me.

I'm glad that someone had the guts to actually make a movie about the true sadism, brutality and torture of slavery. They make a million movies and tv shows and "documentaries" about 'slavery' that only amount to subliminally suggestive propaganda films, that in essence, only show White people lording over and controlling Black people. This movies shows how lower-based the mentalities of people who enslave other human beings has to be, and that "slavery" was not just people being made to...

I’ve wondered for decades why no one has made exactly this kind of film to disclose the actuality of hellish horror, heartbreak, domestic terrorism and inhumane torture that has branded the souls of american slave descendants. . Haters and holocaust deniers will persist but truth counts. This is overdue.

Well I'm going to go see it and taking my children with me. They really need to see what it meant to be enslaved. Not a honey coated version of it given at places like Colonial Williamsburg and those other plantation museums where the offer up a 'slavery light' version of history. This is what happens when we fail to take control of our history. Thank goodness for Steve McQueen, a black brit.

“In 12 Years A Slave, three of the main characters have white women or men. How do you legitimize what you are doing by playing a part in what it was that destroyed you and brought you and your people to the state you are in, and then you come out on the red carpet and show the world just how much a slave you really still are.” This quote speaks to much deeper issues than what we see on the big screen, or even in the images above. The true message behind the movie is that the white race has...

Having a white proteges is old news. Black celebrities especially the successful ones have ALWAYS sported a white companion. Even political advocates like Belafonte, Poitier have had white women or as close to it as they can...look at Eldrige clever. So black men do it ALL the time...they talk that racist bullshyte and have a white whore on their arms....while they throw black women who marched right next to them UNDER THE BUS. Even today.....actors/entertainers/athletes like Taye Diggs,...

Re-introduction? The re-introduction of CNN once again, back to White America. Regarding diversity, CNN can say they have diversity because if you look at that 12 person line-up above, you have 3 minorities in that grouping: Sanjay Gupta, Christine Amanpour and Fareed Zakaria....who aren't White but Indian Muslim Americans that satisfies their affirmative action/diversity quota and since they aren't Black, White viewers are not going to complain because all 3 have been solid regulars on...

I see it as America was about to drift back into where it was trying to be headed in the 70's, a society of acceptance, and about that time, President Obama was elected, so America's racist have been hard at work behind the scenes as well as out front doing what they do best to undue any social progress that was being made, just as they did in the 70s, 60s, after Emancipation and during Jim Crow. They are planning to once again, undo any social progress America has made, and their first rule...

They thought Jim Crow would last forever and they also KNEW that Romney was going to beat Obama because they along with Romney, truly believed that Whites would never make the same mistake twice by reelecting a Black man.

As far as the new white-washed CNN? They can have that shyte. Cuz no matter how they try to homogenized the truth? It'll still be according to WHAT network you listen to...whether its a white face or black face speaking it. Don't matter. And I'm sure that Cooper and Morgan are gonna remain true to who they are. I'm not familiar with the rest of 'em. And really don't care one way or the other. I just know that the two I have mentioned have always shown colorless integrity in their reporting...

If folks can look at the Housewives of every city in America, Scandal, Empire, what's some damn race films added to the mix from days of yore? Film actors are playing parts from the land of make believe. Whatever floats folks' boats, is what I say. One can watch a Donald Trump spewing of words and find all the racial shit one can ever desire. Watch the news and get all the excitement one can ever fathom in an entire lifetime, if one is allowed to live for any length of time. Something's...
