This is the article for which my spirit has been searching. It perfectly captures the reasons for my disappointment and disgust with this horrid choice made shamelessly.

You say “we” should play it, too. White people are insulted from the effects of their choices quite often. Black people don’t have the luxury of playing a long ‘game’... because people die in the mean time. People starve in the meantime. People go to jail or remain unemployed in the mean time. The long game is about Read more

I genuinely love your writing, Michael, and agree with you on most points but nobody who sounds like a mannish teenager arguing with his mother can ever be considered the GOAT! Anybody who allows others to put him on a pedestal approximating God gets no adoration from me. No one who brags about having the finest Read more

Honestly, I wouldn’t care, so long as their activism wasn’t so arbitrary with their “pick and choose.” Like with Kanye and his wife, they pick certain things to get involved with, which turns getting support for activism into a fucking gofundme.

The Canadians also played a HUGE role in the operation to rescue those hostages, and guess, THE CANADIANS WERE PISSED. Adding a car chase to a movie “based on actual events” to increase the suspense is cinematic license. Erasing a person or a group’s role in history, or completing distorting that history, is insulting Read more

Can I make a profit making movie about one of your dead relatives who was notoriously private? Hey, he told me it was OK, and not to make it until after they were dead. Read more

That one actually rings kind of true, if you assume Mr. Shirley knows full well that family is a pack of racists (“epiphanies” notwithstanding) and who don’t have any problem exploiting black men any way they can. Also, if you read what the guy said through the lens of Condescending White Savior, it sounds a little Read more

When the family of the topic of your film, a family you claim you didn’t know existed, takes a steaming dump all over your film would it be wise to award said film the highest honor it could possibly receive? Yeah didn’t think so. I really don’t know why people get so worked up over this but they do. Do you really Read more

He wanted to make a movie about his daddy; but, his father was an unremarkable man. So, he stole the legacy of a talented musician and the history of Black Americans to elevate his father’s average life (and make some money). Read more
