red pill / blue pill…OR…white pill / black pill?

sometimes i wonder what’s worse for Black people:

1. White Jesus?

2. Movies / Television (BLAXPLOITATION)?

3. Music (‘Hip-Hop’ / RAP)?

4. the ‘RED-BONE’ / ‘GOOD-HAIR’ skin / hair hierarchy?

or

5. blatant disregard and lack of KNOWLEDGE OF SELF (history, ancestry, and heritage / lineage)?

  1. [spoiler alert]

    it has similar trends as basterds, which simply was a fantasy revenge against hitler and the nazi movement.
    the mistreatment that creates the heroes of basterds is documented by ww2 history.

    based on a narrow reading of the plot and the script, the ‘leading role’ of django is not a black man.
    that’s why will smith turned down the part.
    smith argued that it was still a white savior pic, which is one interpretation.

    however, django is clearly the hero, and the one who has more brains, guts, and adaptive creativity.
    django is alive at the end.
    django gets his girl back.
    and the viewer roots (no pun intended) for django, something that jamie foxx understood.
