I have not seen the film but look forward to it.

I"m so sick of black people whining about not getting movies like this made and when they do, they attack them with a viciousness they never apply to any other films. 

I don't think most of the people attacking this film have seen it.  They read an attack by someone and then co-sign it without seeing it. 

Part of the reaction is our ambivalence with our relationship to the history of American slavery...and the typical disappointment people have with films about the subject. 

Meanwhile the Jewish community continues to make films about the Holocaust and support them every time.

There is a wide enough range of depictions of black life for black folks to take the chip off their shoulder and deal with our legacy. And the movies about slavery are so much better than ever. 

The ADOS argument is retarded beyond belief.  Malcolm X, WEB DuBois and every other great black intellectual giant has supported Pan Africanism. A bunch of non achieving jealous scrum bums making jealous complaints about Black Brits and/or Africans achieving in America is a dismissible punk move.

As for the movie itself, I don't talk about things I haven't seen.  But I know the producer and director, and they are people of great integrity.

ADOS is dangerous horsesh*t.  Yvette is MAGA and there is a photo of her wearing the hat.  Anti-Pan African?  So she's anti-Malcolm X?  Anti-WEB DuBois?  Get the f*ck otta here with that bullsh*t.  Never.

You can't be serious?

You are being extremely dismissive of a movement that has captured the zeitgeist of The Black community. I find your comments even more ironic given that I just watched Yvette Carnell's book club concerning Dr. King. Dr. King's assessment of what Black revolution needed to be more than 50 years ago now is exactly the same scenario that we are facing today.

You're so right about it capturing the zeitgeist of the Black community and it's shifted the political conversation. In 2016, the Breakfast Club was talking to Hillary Clinton about hot sauce, but now-thanks mostly to the efforts of ADOS-even they have to ask the candidates what do they specifically plan to do for black people. ADOS is why reparations became a hot topic on the presidential trail because even Mr. Socialist Bernie Sanders was openly opposed to reparations in 2016, but even he, and many of the rest of the candidates, now reluctantly give support to the idea of 'studying' (really burying) the issue, but that's better than the straight up no reparation advocates used to get. And ADOS advocacy prompted the Democrats' attempt to squelch the issue with the sham Congressional hearings about reparations this summer, but that didn't work. ADOS is forcing the Democratic presidential candidates, the Democrats, and some across the nation, to look at this issue afresh and to consider how we deal with the legacy of slavery in a tangible, really restorative way. That's not something we've seen before, and that's not because of the 'progressives' (White, Black, Brown, or otherwise), it's not because of the Democratic Party, other parts of the Democratic Party coalition, it's because of ADOS. Beyond reparations, I think ADOS is forcing the Democrats, among others, to contend with the racial inequality wealth gap in ways that specify race, and not sweep it under class (which is what Democrats generally like to do). ADOS has led to a greater political education and awakening within the Black community, so what's so wrong with that?

To another point I find a lot of ad hominem attacks against Antonio Moore and Yvette Carnell and it is indicative to me that those critics have no substantive argument against the issue of reparations that ADOS advocates for. I would LOVE to see Antonio Moore and Yvette Carnell invited on a national platform to debate the substantive issues surrounding reparations and the advancement of The Black community in America as a whole.
They don't get national forums because they don't actually do sh*t.  Who have they helped?  They just encourage black people not to vote.  And ask for money. They are grifters, like Candance Owens.

As for the MAGA hat I don't want to hear about any aspect of it as a substantive representation of political discourse any longer. It is too simple of a target at this point and functions as an excuse to end debate.
A MAGA hat and a klan hood are interchangeable to me.   I don't need to know more.

I had a double feature screening of TERMINATOR and TERMINATOR 2 with my kids. First they made fun of the low budget effects in the first film, then got into it and enjoyed it.  The second film TOTALLY holds up. Still a classic.

If there's any trend in Black America that disgusts me, it's the ADOS movement.  It's so anti-intellectual, so anti-black nationalism.  They identify with slavery as their main point of identity...how sick is that? 

The movement is financed by the right wingers who want to suppress the black vote in the next election.

I don't know what the ongoing series is going to be like, but the set up twin books (House of X and Powers of X) are incredible books that instantly become historically important.  The storytelling is incredible, the reinvention of 40 years of these stories brilliant, and I can't imagine going to back to business as usual in this series.
