In the tradition of The Twilight Zone, this bizarre, thought-provoking trilogy addresses the destiny of the world's minorities: Part I: A conservative African American politician must choose between his people's survival and appeasing his white colleagues when space aliens propose to share their profound knowledge in exchange for all black people on earth. Part II: The Virgin Mary's appearance in an inner-city housing project forces a Hispanic priest to face the hidden cultural origins of Western religion. Part III: On the dawn of the "Black Revolution," an African American couple discovers who the "real" enemy is. Written by Lammastide

The functional word is "slop"
9 March 2012 | by (Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie on breitbart.TV's bighollywood site after Derrick Bell's story hit the news. I can't imagine how anyone could imagine a bigger bucket of racist hogwash in my entire life. Shame on HBO for financing and producing this clichéd piece of filth. Start to finish, this movie plays out one racist stereotype of Caucasians after another. The coup de gras is a bunch of white men sitting around a walnut paneled room in leather wingbacks chomping on cigars wondering how much business they'll lose selling afro-centric goods to blacks after they trade them all away to aliens in exchange for vacuum cleaners that suck all the dirty water out of Lake Michigan. Not. Kidding. It's unbelievable to think that the guy that wrote this piece of dogmatic nonsense was once a Harvard Professor. Yes, you read that right. A Harvard Professor, and apparently a mentor to President Obama, wrote this incredibly racist anti-white and anti-Jew diatribe. Here's one of the "witty" jokes from the film; "The American dream is all blacks swimming back to Africa with a Jew under each arm." Again... Not. Kidding. If you want know the plot, all you do is take the Twilight Zone episode "To Serve Man", substitute a Max Headroom version of Ronald Reagan in place of Richard Kiel as the evil Alien, and then, only blacks are forced on the spaceships to the alien sausage factory... "It's a cookbook for blacks, Robert Guillaume, don't get on that spaceship!" Just sickening.
