VERY hard to watch...but watch you WILL
3 May 2007 | by (Tokyo, Japan) – See all my reviews

This is not real. But it was. That's the rub.

A chopper goes back in time to the slavery days of America. The pre Civil War years when blacks were basically livestock.

Slaves are bought, sold, traded, and given away as gifts. No concern for the families being broken up so callously. And the traders thought this was God's will. A preacher even affirms this.

They eat the back end of the crops. And if they refuse, they get force fed. These scenes are hard to watch because of the violence and the grossness. But it DID happen that way.

Of course you have your whipping scenes. Seems ordinary, but remember, the blacks weren't criminals. They were people like the rest of us. They did nothing to deserve their plight.

What shocked me was watching the owners grab body parts like they were looking for ripe veggies. And check their teeth and eyes like they were buying a race horse.

Shock-o-rama. And mostly because it's true.
