So black people is gonna pretend that their wasn't Koonz in slavery days....like they are now....the moral of the story is that Harreit Tubman was hero for those wanted to be free from White Oppression but now you have black people in droves now signing up to be slaves for White Validation ...even our so called superstars like Jay z and Beyonce ..and most of all Miss Kooonye can't do enuff to shoe shine for the Massa..

Exactly why I watched this isht on Kodi last night for free. It looked like garbage to me when I saw the previews, and proved to be just that. Hell, I fell asleep on it 43 minutes in, and have no desire to pick up where I left off.

I wanted to see it. But I know my history. Harriet was severely abused by white owners before saving herself. And going back to save others. Never heard of Bigger Long. If I see it Ill go expecting to see fiction.

They completely did 180 on the life story of a Black heroine and then they had the nerve to call it a biopic. And folks are defending it saying it's just for entertainment. People are so dense. Wake me when they make a movie about how George Washington used to rape his female slaves while watching Martha have threesomes with her male slave named Johnny Handcock.

I didn't see this movie but I may just watch a bootleg version so I can rip it to shreds. Unfuckingbelievable what Hollywood and the blacks who support them will try to get away with. Janelle can get an L for this one.

I knew this movie was going to be complete and utter fuckery. This is why Nubians need to tell their own stories. The same thing is done in the spiritual communities with these fucking troglodytes, depicting and writing books on Babylonians, Phoenicians, Kemetic portraying them as caucasoids, and blaspheming all over the place. Then our dumb ass people initiating them into Ifa/Palo/Vodun and other spiritual sciences, this is why I would never write a book on Obeah and its rituals, leave it to others to speculate what it is and what it isn't. This is why we must stop including them into out stuff, go get your own shit and leave our things alone. I hope these bitches get sick behind this blasphemy.

First they take her $20 now THIS!!! Know your history and tell our story. Harriet Tubman lifetime wasn't this long ago for this level of ambiguity.

No!!!!!! said...

1228 you really need to know your history. there were NO BLACK BOUNTY HUNTERS back then!! NONE!! do u think fr fr they would give a BLACK MAN a gun back then!??! the white slave catcher would catch him too!! u have no idea what you are talking about and thats sad!! uncle tom wasnt really an "uncle tom" stop believing lies!! there might be coons today but its complete fiction there were black bounty hunters during slavery.
the coons were the igbo diala who were free nigerian blacks who sold slaves to the whites in america. this actress is a nigerian who more than likely is a descendent of the diala tribe. ..

and for u to cosign a white savior during a slave movie u need to check yourself
