This is aimed at the "pride" movie coming soon...

when will these movies end... I don't think this help repairs relations with white, and black people.

The only way this country is gonna move froward is to let go of the past.

It's sad.

Move on if we don't we will never unite as Americans.

Does anyone else feel the same way... I know it's a touchy subject.

This country is so divided cause things like this at least thats what I think. I guess it is our history though.

Can't argue with you here shackle. Sometimes movies and other things are made with no consideration to he effect to it. Or maybe the film makers don't give a shit.

ya this is pretty typical when fighting is involved. it seems like the first thing people want to know when a fight breaks out at my school is what race they are and THEN who won. i couldnt care less what you look like or what color your skin is when i fight or watch a fight but its really annoying when people turn it into a racial contest.

You guys are absolutely right about trying to move forward but don't you think blacks have a valid right to be pissed?

I would be mad if my great grandparents were slaves. I mean slavery wasnt that long ago.

And Racism is still a reality for lots of people: Look at Guantanamo Bay. Just because they looked like terrorists they were imprisoned without due Judicial process.

No because it was sooooo long ago, and most people prob don't care about there great great great great grandmother they never seen. I know I don't cause I don't even know her.

If we don't move on, and let go of the past our country will be stuck like this forever. Race will always be a issue I think ... I just wished we could all just move on, and get alone.

almost Every race went through slavery at one point in time.

How long does it take for a race of people to recover from Hundreds of years of oppression?
Its not like the Jews who were slaves thousands of years ago.
Remember that things like poverty, abuse, and depression are inherited from one generation to the next. And we see the results of these things in our prison systems/social systems today. im not trying to make excuses for anyone, but people have to be sensitve towards these issues. More so than ever. I realize that this generation didnt enslave black people, but there is still a deep rooted racism in America today. Look at how we treated muslum people after 911.

I think as time goes on the youth generations will put aside the stereotypes passed on to them by our parents and we will move forward, but everything takes time

Never going to happen. As long as people decide to keep their cultures preserved we won't be a giant melting pot.

what a worthless post go back to sherdog ass hole.

No one is bitching. I'm just stating how I don't think these movies helps race relations.

It's time to move on. It's fine to know your history, but don't live by it, and hate a race for something that happen so long ago. I'm sure these movies upset people too.

As your mother tells you "forgive and forget".
