Default Re: OT: If an old white man had a young black girl by a chain..

luckily nobody here is angry about it. i just like to see things from different perspectives.

but i do know that if a white/black guy had a hispanic girl by a chain for an entire movie i wouldnt like it.

of course, yall are saying he's "saving her", but the previews dont make it seem that way at all.

This is what people should be outraged about much more than the race issue. The movie portrays a man who believes that it's ok to chain people if they disagree with your personal views of morality as a positive character.

What is this movie about anyway? I only saw the preview for it once, and I was doing other things, do I didn't pay much attention.

The chain is symbolic and the movie is actually deeper than it's previews lead you to believe. It's as if they don't think people would come out and see it if in the previews they explained it for more of what it really is so instead they focus on the half naked nimpho in a chain and the assumption is that it's some sort of sexual debauchery and everyone will go out to see it.

Many will leave the theatres disappointed because of this since they were expecting soft core porn and instead found the movie to be too heavy and provocative, while others will be pleasantly surprised by it.

Monster Ball anyone? A movie about a white racist prison guard getting some black booty from the wife of a man who just happens to be on death row.

With that being said Christina Ricci deserves and Oscar.

According to my girl there was an old white man holding Sanaa Lathan as his sex slave in Nip/Tuck and you didn't see any big backlash over that. Wasn't advertised like this but the premise is still the same.

it is what it is, meaning it has a different reaction for a reason: because its just different.
Like take this for example
A female teacher having sex with a male student
or
a male teacher having sex with a female student

what do you think is worse?

Most think the 2nd is worse... But personally think they are both equally bad because of the damage they do to young kids..

Boys are hurt because they are just way too young to be in a sexual relationship with a grown woman...

I heard how the one female had some kid shaving her pubic hair

I think the kid was in 8th grade or something.. and 8th grader is waay too young to handle something like that..

While other kids are playing sports and doing things an 8th grader should be doing, this woman has gone and warped this kids brain by introducing him to something like that... the kid is gonna be a serious pervert if not dealt with properly

I could handle a razor in 8th grade. If he can't it's her own fault.

I think both are extremely deplorable and reprehensible, but I honestly don't think many 8th grade boys would shy away from the chance to get with a good looking teacher. You'd be surprised at what some of these children know and have done, even at an early age.

It would be stupid for a any person to get angry or feel "hate" for this movie and not feel a bit of hypocrisy considering blacks have to watch slave movies and TV shows where black women are chained, beaten, and mistreated by white men all the time. Plus I'm not sure Ricci is white, or even human, she looks kinda alien.
