A friend of mine who worked at our local cinema when '12 Years a Slave' came out told me this story:

  • He's working at the snacks section
  • 3 black women come up and order their snacks, smiling, happy, joking etc
  • he gives them their stuff, they pay, say please and thank you etc
  • after the film they walk by him with frowns and angry faces, giving him a particularly foul look, simply because he was white

These films do not solve any problems that have not already been solved, they perpetuate racial divisions and cause more harm than good

My dad was a white pastor in a black neighborhood church when I was a kid. The people in the neighborhood wouldn't come to the church because they perceived it as a 'white' church. I never read anything deeper into it than they liked their own kind of service and music and we didn't have it, etc. But plenty of my friends came from that neighborhood due to the vast amount of time I spent there as the kid of the preacher.

We opined in agreement when we were all 6... that racism would end if we'd all just stop talking about it. I haven't changed my opinion in the slightest in the following 3 decades.

Racism would stop if we stopped thinking about it, but we're programmed to be wary of the out group and many people don't grow up around ethnicities different from their own. If we don't talk about it it WILL get worse.

Aside from his current status, I'd like to see more stuff like what Bill Cosby used to put out or Fresh Prince. That stuff was positive and feel good, everything that involves black neighborhoods is all ghetto, hood, slavery, violent.

It'll leave anyone a bit salty.

Why the fuck are they remaking 'Roots'? Seriously, what could possibly be the point other than to stir shit?

Maybe we should also remake 'North and South' to remind them why they have the ability to remake shitty movies in the first place.

Because the original lacked rainbow hair and diversity.

Yet adding diversity to Roots would mean making it white! Just like having more Larry Birds in the NBA.

Because it'll make money.

That's it. They can cash in on the current craze of telling black people that their problems are caused by a mysterious force outside of their control; in this case that force is "history" and white people. Let alone the fact that 99% of the white people you see either didn't have ancestors in the country, or weren't among the privileged elite that owned slaves.

You know how much time I spend worrying about what my great-great-great-grandfather did and how it affects my life? Zero. Because it's as meaningful as reading tea leaves and as changeable as shouting at a mountain. You're dealt the hand you're dealt; if you can't cope with that you'll look for excuses, and if you were previously well-adjusted but are stupid, then the first time you hear a huckster selling you a magic pill you'll go "wait a second, maybe I wasn't happy," and fork over your cash.

If they had the audacity to remake ghostbusters, what is to stop them from doing the same with movies like roots. Shock factor is the only thing driving these decisions.

This was retarded. He thinks the reason why rich white liberals make these fucking movies is to rub it in their face that "we had them", and not to Instill white guilt. Snoop dog isn't based in any way, he's just an over rated dip shit

Who elegantly phrases his rhetoric cases in rap mannered crazes. Eloquently elaborating on his philosophical meandering... I'm out of things rhyming... =/

He's also a product of reddit. A puppet that time rendered irrelevant a decade ago. Fucking guy is like a social media zombie. He's "Not your parents Oldsmobile"...

That is why rich white liberals do it. It keeps the people split. Liberals are the biggest group of racist people you can find.

I took it the other way around. He's sick of being reminded about how "they did us," as in he thinks 'they' is irrelevant in this day and age and he's tired of being painted as a victim.

I've not heard it put that way before, but a lot of people of all races agree with him. The SJWs and regressive left need to catch up and forget about white guilt and WWII - just live as we are now.

This would be more inspiring if he weren't a spokesboy for Tweed, an unconstitutional draconian plantation corporation feeding us dog shit. Snoop is just the house boy, no integrity at all.

"I ain't watching that shit, and I advise you motherf-—ers as real n— like myself; f— them television shows," Snoop said. "Let's create our own shit based on today, how we live and how we inspire people today. Black is what's real. F— that old shit."

Eloquent? No...

An edifying and inspirational message? Maybe...
