Anyone else watching this?
I normally don't watch documentary's but this is pretty GOAT in the way they present the way business was done in the industrial age.

    I saw that shit before. Its not a documentary, its a TV show, subject to revisionist history. It is entertaining though.

    It had alot of gems in there on business principles, but they cut alot of parts out and it was waaaaaay to sensationalized trying to make them out to be pure heroes when they were more so complex individuals with ulterior motives especially the why they portrayed JP Morgan.

    They also breezed past the fact that Henry Ford utilized Hemp and Soybean to create a plastic stronger than stell and how George Washington Carver contributed to that. So I enjoyed it for what it was I guess. You can learn much more about business from rich dad, poor dad(or other finance,business books), actually starting a business, or watching some free vids on business on youtube.

    LOL NOT A SINGLE NIGGA WAS SHOWN ON THAT SHOW SMH!!! GOD DAMN CRACKAS. Every last one of them had a shit load of free labor(niggas). where you think they got all that money from in the first place. White people will never put nothing epic out showing their evil dark side. They always got to dress it up some kind of way if they do.

    How The States Got Their Shapes is possibly one of the greatest shows to come out in the past couple years.

    I DVR'd the series, but I knew they were going to sugarcoat everything. I know these men were much more ruthless than they are making them appear to be.

    Yeah, I saw one episode of this and was hooked. I know there are things they left out about this though, too.

    ^^ The definition of a powerful post.100%truth and some white people cant handle it.If you were to ask them the question as to it relates to threadstarters thread title and ask them "who built this country" theyll prolly throw out george washington ,james madison or some shit.....lol...theyre so lost in the minds its laughable because its actual grown caucasian people who truly believe that those old white men built this country.

    The men who built this country didn't wear business suits...they wore chains.

    So chain attire will fix Africa?
