Once again, all I’m saying is stop getting into huge arguments with every person you disagree with. This forum was made to discuss films dealing with racial injustice, and even if you think that many of the films in question are invalid, that doesn’t mean that people who like those films don’t get to mention them, or that their opinion doesn’t matter. You’ve recently gotten into arguments with several users across more than just this forum, and the more that people argue over the films here then the more the original point of the topic gets lost. If you disagree with this post, which I’m guessing you will, just say you disagree and move on, because while I’m willing to make my point a final time, I’m not going to let this topic get derailed into yet another confrontation.June 12, 2020 at 10:26 pm #1203530598
Avoid a lot of the films mentioned above, especially Green Book, The Help, Driving Miss Daisy, and The Blind Side. They’re films by white artists, made to make white audiences feel good about “how far we’ve come,” and they surround a white savior, instead of talking about the Black American experience. They are not helpful. Watch instead: -Do the Right Thing (essential viewing, especially right now) -BlackKklansman -If Beale Street Could Talk -Mudbound -The Color Purple -Get Out -Malcom X -Precious -Paris is Burning -Moonlight -Fences -A Raisin in the Sun If you want to learn about racial prejudice in America, you’ve got to watch some movies that are going to hurt and make you sad. You won’t learn anything from a feel-good movie about racism.
Those films I’ve mentioned will never be avoided. Those films are significant and special. Just my opinion.June 12, 2020 at 2:34 pm #1203530181

She blew me away. Too bad she hated the film and her performance but we don’t. Glad the Oscars included her during In Memoriam segment.
