Reason that there are no comments ?
17 December 2007 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

I was wondering why nobody seemed to think this movie was worth commenting on.

Living in South Africa I can tell you my idea why this is so.

People, especially white people world wide and especially in this country has been loaded with a guilt trip about blacks. We see it in this country every day. We have to feel guilty about the behavior of black people. In the USA slavery is still being given as the reason for their failure and the reason they make up the vast majority of the criminal population.

In South Africa they make up more than 98% of the prison population and this after the communist ANC party has been ruining the country since 1994.

The youths deserved Texas justice. A life for a life. Nothing more and nothing less.

In South Africa they get away with the murder of 1800 white farmers in 10 years. Why ? The same reason nobody commented on this movie. Whites are loaded with a guilt trip for black failure.

In South Africa it is so bad that there is a rape every 52 seconds. What does the black government do about it. They tell the VICTOMS to be more careful. The most disgusting thing about this is that the GUILT LOAD of the whites is so severe they actually believe this rubbish. They actually forgive these barbaric actions because the church says so.

This movie is part of everyday life in South Africa and God Forbid that the Americans ever get so pathetic.

Justice systems should not allow themselves to be hijacked by racist cowards that do not want to see the reality of their own people and communities.

Slavery can no longer be used in the USA as an excuse for being a sick human being and a social failure. It is time that people start taking responsibility for their actions/ This movie was disturbing because of the reality of it. It awakes severe anger against leaders such as the Reverend from HELL.

I presume this is only discussed in the privacy of homes unfortunately.
