let’s review the ratings *filters the white reviews*
This is why it’s important we flood the theaters when this goes into theaters.
But if a white person did dear black people it would be wrong
…yes, yes it would…
what do white people have to say to black people that we don’t tell them every day already with our actions, judgments, racial stereotypes, laws, and police force?
white people don’t have anything to say to black people because we already have a say in everything they do and have done for the last few hundred years. one movie where black people have the spotlight over white people, calling out blatant and subtle racism in our society, isn’t going to kill us.
get the fuck over your white superiority complex. you don’t stand to lose anything, but black people stand to gain everything.

Darren Wilson’s jury
number of votes needed to get him off
9 out of 12
The town is 60% black and you could only find 3 blacks to serve on this jury?
I mean, hell. You could have made it “fair:” 6 whites and 6 blacks.
Or even just 6 non white people, they don’t all need to be black people but seriously. Provide a fair fucking jury.
YESSS!!!! (via shitrichcollegekidssay)
