JAMIL SMITH writes in TIME magazine: Quote: “It’s a movie about what it means to be black in both America and Africa—and, more broadly, in the world.” (It’s entirely fictional so what, exactly, does it mean Jamil, to be black?)
To view the movie, black audiences and cast members wore ascending head wraps made of various African fabrics. Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o wore her natural hair tightly wrapped above a resplendent bejeweled purple gown. Men, including star Chadwick Boseman and Coogler, wore Afrocentric patterns and clothing, dashikis and boubous. Co-star Daniel Kaluuya, an Oscar nominee for his star turn in Get Out, arrived wearing a kanzu, the formal tunic of his Ugandan ancestry.
This is about the color of one’s skin. White is the color of the Oppressor’s skin. Black is the skin color of the oppressed….. Remember, this is 2018 in the United States of America where Affirmative Action has been in place since 1964, 54 long and expensive years of billions paid to people not because of the content of their character, That lie ended when it started.
Fifty-four years and the stale rhetoric of skin color is resonating and being amplified.
From SBPDL: “On His Netflix Comedy Special, Chris Rock Calls for the Shooting of White Children (So White Mothers Will Cry).
Here’s his opening joke:
You would think cops would occasionally shoot a white kid just to make it look good. You would think that every couple of months they’d look at their dead nigga calendar and go, “Oh my god, the 16th—we gotta shoot a white kid quick.” “Which one?” “The first one you see singing Cardi B.”
Then he continues: “I want to live in a world with real equality. I want to live in a world where an equal amount of white kids are shot every month. I want to see white mothers on TV crying.”
Ladies and gentlemen, the mask is slipping. Chris Rock has his knives sharpened. He has just – on Netflix – called for the killing of white kids.
A lot of white people have tried to make this experiment work; but when looking at the picture of race relations in America, a disturbing hidden pictures emerges. Rock just showed it to us.
