Lol @ the no signs
For myself the most resonant movies on a particular topic present believable, complex, relatable characters doing plausible things ... It didn't do that
Beyond that the movie didn't deliver any insightful commentary in regards to marriage or relationships or on the media
And the ending felt lazy
Seriously what really was so great about the movie?
Go watch a tylper Perry movie or something. Cause you tripping hard
Tripping how so?
Just didn't enjoy the movie... Seems as though finch and co didn't know if they wanted to make a thriller, a murder mystery, or a satire
The drop >>>> gone girl
And I don't do tyler perry movies bruh
That's the whole point! It's a film that plays with the audience's minds whilst watching it as evidenced from some posters here. .. ("Wtf did I just watch???")
Even Fincher himself in an interview I watched recently said what drew him to the script was the bending tones; the unpredictability of the story
It's just a story with the theme: Everything Is Not What It Seems.. .
Why is this 22 pages?
So-called niggas are just disadvantaged black people who have been especially hard hit by racism and discrimination going back generations.
That's not to say that they never do anything that deepen or sustain their own downtrodden condition. But that behavior is itself the cumulative result of racial oppression.
So this distinction between 'niggas' and black people is dehumanizing to so-called niggas, and wrongly detaches their shortcomings from the racial oppression that produced them. That is something that white people often do.
Give us an example of a black person not hit hard by racism and discrimination for generations. This shit makes no sense at all. Like some shit you conjured up to cope and assimilate with white people.
Nigga letting the word be defined by a pissing contest of who had it worst. What black person had it easy?
Our goal should not be raising a race of hyper moral super humans or adopting the divisive tactics of our oppressor
Our goal should be affording our children the right to live like the normal humans they are, will be through group economics, voting, etc
All this niggas vs blk people talk just impedes our progress as well as perpetuates white supremacy
Just do your part click up with like minded individuals, volunteer in ur community, mentor the youth, be politically active, put together a neighborhood watch, learn your rights and past on the knowledge, etc
and the rest will fall into place
Slavery only ended only a little over 150 yrs it's gonna take time
What in the fuck is normal?
Normal is a relative term. It describes the standards of behavior set by a community of people through a system of rewards and punishments. Normal is socialized behavior.
For instance, in white homes, it's completely normal for white children to have cursing matches and screaming fits with their parents.
Is this normal behavior for a Black home? I on't care how thugged out or how much of a bad bitch someone claims to be, they know they not takin that mess home to they momma.
Morality, law, ethics, was disseminated into the world from the African. People were in the world living lawless, straight reckless. African people set the standard, we were the law, we taught law, code of conduct. We were teaching people that you shouldn't sleep with immediate family members. We were teaching people that murdering someone is wrong. We were teaching people that living in the same quarters as your animals is not healthy.
Black standards of normality are not the same as everyone else's. However we got these generation of folks who want to be be treated just liek white folks not understanding that less than two generations ago we knew how filthy white folks were, and that they were no standard to be following. Our grandmommas and great grans and aunties who cleaned their houses, or great fathers or unc who drove them around knew their dirt, saw beyond that facade, that public mask.
The community sets the standard for what normal is. However, Black people have been placed, have been imposed upon, have been forced into an environment where criminality, poverty, and the resulting stressed behaviors and personalities, we refer to as niggas, have become the acceptable norm.
And aint no goddamn slavery end 150 years ago. We still have slavery today. it is caled the prison industrial complex, and rather than matrilineal slavery, we have penal slavery, which is why the existence of "the nigga" is such an imperative, white folks need that image more than anything, because they can project anything upon it.
A nigga is a Black person who has accepted the cracca's distortion of him or her, which is why they accept the term nigga in the first place.
