Pure Paranoid Whitey Did It Nonsense
8 May 2012 | by (Albany, NY) – See all my reviews

The whole premise of the KKK plot behind the killings portrayed in this film is pure garbage. For one, even in the film, they acknowledge that the Mayor of Atlanta back then was black, so why would he want to suppress the news of this so called conspiracy? The film tries to explain this that anything short of a complete indictment of the KKK would make martyrs of the klansmen and/or start a race war is crap too. Even if the KKK was not directly indicted, a few of the white killers could have been arrested and tried and they may have later ratted on the KKK.

Second, the killings stopped after the rightfully convicted killer was arrested. Another clue that the premise of this book and movie are bunk. the fact that no one ever saw one white man abduct any of those black kids should be cause to doubt this whole conspiracy.

No slight against James Belushi, he is an okay actor but no star and Hines is the same. This is total B movie dreck aimed at a crackpot black audience who refuses to accept any responsibility for their own people's dismal lot. So there is a built in audience for this kind of dishonest dreck. Stone's "JFK" was a load of crap too, but at least that was an interesting well made movie.

But just look at Mumia, another case involving a black killer, these sort of cases create conspiracies.
