I recently saw a commercial on television for a remake of the movie “Roots.” This illustrates one of the greatest faults of Hollywood: Lack of originality and creativity. Literally, there must be a hundred thousand great stories that could be made into a movie, but they chose to do a remake.
But, that’s not the issue for today.
There’s at least a generation of people today that did not know there was a fiction book written in the 1970’s that was made into a highly acclaimed television mini-series in 1977. That fiction book was “Roots” by Alex Haley.
Now the really important part is the fact that most of the people that were alive during the “Roots” phenomena, don’t know today that:
1: The book was fiction
2: Alex Haley plagiarized a good portion of the research.
Sadly, many won’t care about that.
I won’t be watching the remake movie so I won’t know how well it will be told that the story is fiction.
But, that won’t matter to the BLM type groups. They will use this film as agi-prop to promote their class/race warfare agenda.
Black people are not excited about voting for an old white dude or an old white hag, so this movie will help get people agitated
