The one thing I liked about the movie is that it depicted the brutality of slavery. There were scenes with slaves battling to the death for the master’s amusement; a scene of a slave torn apart by the master’s dogs; and a scene of the enclosure in a box that recaptured runaway slaves had to suffer through. There are scenes that should offend all viewers to the point where they demand that the United States Government pay for the inhumanity it participated in and sanctioned in the past.
But that wouldn’t happen. The white power structure will get another pass on that one as it has on all other wrongs it legitimized against blacks in the past. Here is an example of how they get away with their wrongs. Take this with you: A white man, a black man and a Jew were stranded on an island. One of them kicked opened a bottle and a genie was released. The genie offered to grant each of them a wish for setting him free. He started with the black man. “I want all of my people to go back to Africa and live free,” the black man wished. “It is so,” the genie said. The Jew wished that all his people would be sent to the holy land to live free. “It is so,” said the genie. Then he turned to the white man. The white man said; “Let me get this straight: the niggers are all in Africa?" “Yep,” said the genie. And the kikes are all in the holy land?" “Yep” said the genie, “now what do you want?” The white man said, “Shit, in that case I’ll have a martini.”
