Slave Mentality Film
26 February 2014 | by Moviemanb2014See all my reviews

Racism is internalized by the people who are victimized by it. How else can you explain a movie where a group of enslaved Africans turn to an African "witchdoctor" to free them in exchange for sacrificing their children. Right - I won't say what happens in the movie, but the depiction of African religious beliefs -you know the religious belief of Africans when they were free in Africa before they were enslaved and made into "Christians" -are horrible and misleading. If people who consider themselves "white," made this movie - the NAACP, the NBA, and all of Compton would be up in protest. Yes the slave mentality exists so much that people today would rather stick to the religion given to them by their slave masters than take time to really learn about what their ancestors actually believed when they were FREE in Africa. The saddest thing is that there are some good actors and notable actors in the movie - one guess they hadn't read the script until showing up or were so desperate for a check due to Hollywood's paucity of acting jobs for black people they decided to do it anyway. It's very sad indeed of the stereotypes and pure ignorance that black people have been indoctrinated with regarding their natural belief systems. I guess our hair and skin were not the only things whitewashed or we were made to hate over the past 400 years. The search for positive and accurate black images continue -shoot, right now I'd just settle for something accurate based on Hollywood's continual racist b.s. This time done in black face.
