      How exactly is it 'relevant today'. BLM are more of a threat today than the KKK.

      It's also difficult to take any of this "white supremacy" stuff seriously when the Americans just had a black president for 8 years.

      Black Lives Matter (I assume you mean) is a "threat"?. By saying that black lives are just as important as white lives? How is that a threat?

      And the backlash got Donald Trump elected who is steadily trying to dismantle every part of President Obama's legacy. Meanwhile David Duke is praising Donald Trump who calls Nazi's "fine people". But you are right. Nothing to see here. Lets move on!

      A white supremacist shot up a black church and killed 9 people and a white supremacist killed a counter protestor at a Unite The White rally which the President of the United States failed to condemn but BLM are the real threat guys

      Attacking white people for being white in 2018, and advocating a list of demands that would infringe on white people's freedom. Black lives do matter (as if anyone needs to be reminded of that), but the organisation is nasty and a threat to people living today.

      There is so much wrong with almost every single word you said that it would take an essay to explain and for you to ignore. So I will just concentrate on the statement quoted above. In particular "(as if anyone needs to be reminded of that)".

      If you "really" believe that then you are living on a completely different planet to black people and many white people too. What is sad is that you really are living on a different planet and you can't see it. You're a sensitive soul I can see that from other comments you have made in the past and how upset you get sometimes. But it's like you stick your fingers in your ears, close your eyes and sing. This isn't cognitive dissonance. That would be too easy. This is deliberate avoidance of what is staring you in the face. Unless of course you live somewhere where your only access to black people is the Daily Mail (Fox News lite) and National Geographic?

      When black parents have to spend time teaching their children so they don't get shot by the police something is wrong.
      When Trayvon Martin got shot in the back in Florida by a man who had time to go back to his house, get his gun the go back and shoot him yet gets off under their 'stand your ground law' but a black woman who stood up to her violent partner and fired one shot into the ground went to to jail then BLM matters.
      When someone calls the police on a child running a lemonade stand there is something wrong.

      I apologise. I went off the reservation. Obviously, we live in privileged times and the KKK and slavery and everyone with black skin is oppressed today and I failed to check my priviledge. I genuinely pray for your safety and hope you survive the next few hours as society is a minefield of racist hate. What do I know. I'll simply swallow the narrative.

      'Black parents' would be nice. Its curently estimated that 70% of black kids are born out of wedlock and without fathers. Surely nothing at all to do with crime statistics. Perhaps something is 'wrong'.

      I have lived and worked with a wide range of people and have seen how some are treated by supposedly civilised people.
      I have also seen that all groups have good, indifferent and bad and your' well, black and white view of things frankly suggests a lack of experience with other cultures and races.

      It's interesting to note that white people are very free to shoot black people in "stand your ground" states but the same courtesy doesn't extend to black people.

      Also what about the Freedom not to be shot on sight for being black, or to be reported for selling water while being black, or to be called the N word in a bus full of black people, or to be reported to the police for being an estate agent while black, or to be allowed to stand in a public place, lets say a restaurant while being black and so on and on and on.

      Freedom is not absolute. It comes with responsibility. Most people, even racists understood that which is why they mostly kept their views to themselves. This has now changed. I wonder why?

      That's not a very clever trick. Take the genuine concern of someone who has bothered to actually read and more importantly experience the real world then exaggerate them. As a deflection tactic this is pretty weak mate. I would suggest you stop digging.

      At some point someone will say, why are you going on about this, it's only a movie, or something like that. Neatly forgetting that I didn't start this conversation but I will call BS when I see it.

      "Have you forgotten that once we were brought here, we were robbed of our name, robbed of our language. We lost our religion, our culture, our god...and many of us, by the way we act, we even lost our minds"

      But, but, but......that was so long ago.........like.......get over it........geeez.

      But it’s a vicious cycle caused by the white on black racism that you seem to deny.

      Black people in America are the most socially disadvantaged group, living predominantly in the crappier urban areas with the lowest median income., so it is not surprising that they suffer the most social problems.

      As to crime, they are disproportionately likely to be targeted by the police and more likely to receive a sentence stiffer than white counterparts.

      All of that is a function of racism and what is essentially disenfranchisement for the majority from the mainstream which still goes on today despite the society moving forward enough to elect a black president.

      Totally agree mate.

      But the comments being made could never in a million years be left unchallenged.

      As I said before, I didn't want this and I certainly didn't start this. But I will certainly end it!

      @Sharuna Warner or @Garrett, is this review and thread in the wrong forum?

      5238F738-DB6F-49B0-BEB9-A8AD37609268.png

      Shouldn't it be in "Movies" as it's currently in cinemas?
