Murder Without Motive? More like propaganda without conscience
10 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The main character has a huge chip on his shoulder. He wants to blame his color for treatment that lands upon ANY of us that do not come from privilege. This situation is now even worse than ever before because black tribalism has allowed for the hatred of white people to be more than tolerated. It is commercially promoted by multibillion dollar, multinational corporations and governments.

The character is ultimately a racist that tries to beat a man to death because he was white and rude for good reason. At the time of this movie's release, people were pretty open to accepting any depiction of black hardship as racism caused by white people. I grew up during the 80's and 90's. They really brainwashed our generation and today has it even worse.

It's garbage like this that killed American culture and put white people in a position of minorities of EQUALITY.

The people who see the least equality in this nation are white and this has been the case for a decade and a half. We now see free room, board, healthcare and COLLEGE TUITION for illegal aliens. I fear garbage like this will keep being released and make things worse for those of us who are not interested in being ashamed of our heritage and adopting black ghetto skid row gutter culture. I am proud to be white for very good reason.

It won't be long before black pride is something to be ashamed of based on what is happening in 2013 USA.
