Will You Be Going To See “12 Years A Slave”?

tumblr_m8mf9cw4SC1rqfdzgo1_500what is up with all these slave movies?
django dun opened the flood gates?
i just watched this trailer for “12 years a slave”.
i won’t lie it got me.
i don’t like slave movies because it hurts to know what “we” went though,
but this looks interesting…

12 Years a Slave” is based on an incredible true story of one man’s fight for survival and freedom. In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty (personified by a malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender), as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon’s chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt) will forever alter his life.

i dunno if i’ll go see it in the theater.

  1. All the NIGGERS need to put on their most swagger of outfits, get in their fancy cars, and go see this movie. And I’m a white gay male saying this.

      1. Dumb ass? That is very harsh and unfair. I’ve done nothing to you being new to this website. I don’t like NIGGER dick. I love educated black MEN. I call people with hood mentality = NIGGERS. All of my black friends address them like that as well. I support many black causes and stand up for blacks. What has you done for your community or are you a NIGGER?

    1. Lil white boy don’t even go to the “what have you done for your community” because i breathe community service. I am educated. matriculating into Grad school. I admit I was once in that cycle of seeing other “less FORTUNATE” blacks as niggers. Some actually ARE, however, it is sometimes not WHOLE to pass out that judgement that way. Some may want to be educated but circumstances prevent them from..don’t judge because you do not know their story. I taught Upward Bound kids, I started a civic social org for minority at-risk young males and have been featured in our local newspaper for starters and am in an organization that caters primarily to service…so let’s not get into what have you done…whether your BLACK friends participate in ignorance should you as well? Do better…let them see others for their worth, not for their degrees, everybody is important in some way. I am matriculating to an Ivy League, I am BLESSED to do so, (and HARDWORK)…still looking down through your glasses to others may not necessarily be the key (I have learned) . Some indeed have CHOSEN to be “niggers”, some “are” , yet some are victims of circumstance. Since you can not decipher easily, take a neutral standpoint.

  2. It puzzles me how gay NIGGERS can talk about men and fucking all day but would not go watch a movie with substance. This is why these white assholes in higher positions treat black people like trash. Hey as a gay male I know what it’s like to be oppressed and I’m white.

  3. I will see it, they are rolling the film out starting Oct 18 in limited release so NYC and LA will get it in Oct.I plan to read book first to know the background story.Django was Quenton’s story, TYAS is Solomon’s story

  4. You know white people will make this movie number 1.They love to watch movies like this.It’s reliving their glory days or what they like to call “the good ol days.”People really need to stop supporting these movies.I had no idea black people supported this shit.Damn, do you guys just want to say “fuck our freedom and put those chains back on us.”I had no idea that black people missed being tortured, raped, and killed and being called Nigger like it was your first name so much that they want to keep reliving those days.Hey black actors, if you don’t want to be gang-banger/thug in film you can always play a slave.You should see how many black women are saying how hot the slave master is that they can’t wait to see a rape scene with him and a black woman/slave.Seriously, this is how far we’ve progressed?100 and something years after slavery ended and these people still want to dress up and pretend to be slaves.What the hell was the point of fighting for our freedom, if you motherfuckers want to keep watching a time when we didn’t have any play out on screen.Do you really need visuals, it wasn’t enough to read about it.HBO or SHOWTIME might as well do a reboot of ROOTS.That’s what you all want.Why the hell are you entertained by slavery?I don’t get it.I hated sitting through Roots at my grandma’s house.Couldn’t wait till that shit ended.It was torture, no j/k.

    1. The director of the movie is a English black man.

      Just a heads up. Your assumption is completely wrong and hurtful. As a white man, and I can’t speak for all of them, but I’m not going to see the movie to enjoy slavery. I’m going to see it to see the ignorance of my own people. These movies (Roots, Django, The Help) also help whites to acknowledge they own racism head on. They cast black people as the hero in the end rather than the victim/enemy.

  5. Reading these comments; a lot of you have a lot to learn. Finally a film that speaks to the injustice of our captivity an the strength of our people and you all refuse to go see it?

    You motherfuckers are stupid.

    I plan on seeing the movie.

    Btw, I found this extremely ironic:
    “i am glad god blessed me to be born within this generation.”

    Love you Jamari, but…yeah.
