    You keep saying race, and referencing racism, but that is not the correct term. It's more classism/elitism and the need to distance yourself from those who you view as less than you because they don't have what you have.

    Why didn't she look for white people instead of her own kind stupid movie if it was a white guy she was doing this to it would have been a great movie

    I love this channel however 1. POC is not appropriate it is just black people, other "poc" do not usually stand with us when we are struggling. 2. It is more about classism as black people can't be racist, colorist, prejudice or classist though yeah.

    As a black person I was surprised that the entire community and was black which was kind of cool and I definitely hated the kids being so entitled but that's how us black people do when we get more money than the average. Loretta Devine was creepy which was a different role she's ever done

    I was waiting for the twist to be that he was actually a practitioner of quite some power himself. What he thinks is backwards is a bunch of hillbillies using it for petty minor things instead of say..... manipulating a trial, and then a final set of scenes of him basically outcasting the ones who captured him.

  • ukkugoodasfidem

    It’s classism NOT racism bro. But cheers to being one of a few white youtubers that try to understand and articulately convey information and messages in films about black people and the experience that comes with having brown skin. Keep it up. And don’t skim on the research. There are a lot of eyes and ears on you. Let’s be sure the information is accurate.

    • ukkugoodasfidem

      A little feedback on the opening in the first minute or so. 1. The cast isn’t “POC” they are black or AA. POC is too often used and misused. It’s an umbrella term that may or may not include black people. Just say black for heavens sake. Stop trying to be so PC that you are wrong lol. 2. It’s classism not racism. Again important distinction with very different definitions. But discrimination yes. 3. It’s not just about him “looking down” on country people. It’s about how perception impacts self view and how people alter themselves to assimilate, survive, and thrive away from struggle. Country people are often looked down on, made fun of, marginalized, mistreated, completely ignored, and even severely harmed just because of who they are. Sound familiar? Well he worked hard to leave that life and that perception. But in the end we all have to face our past and live in our truth of who we are and we’re we come from. That includes the negative perceptions, judgements, and assumptions that come along with it. 4. If I may suggest. White ppl need to stop getting so excited when you all hear the n word. Black ppl use it. You can’t. Cry cry. We are gonna keep using it amongst our community. Move on. It’s not a spectacle here. 5. Seeing a black serial killer isn’t cliché at all. And seeing many ... it’s bananas. They aren’t common in movies or in real life. So this movie was not predictable in that aspect. White murdering hicks sure. But this was different. Just a few thing I wanted to add to any white people who may see it. Today I had a little time and decided to type out some educational points lol. I know his audience is mostly white which is why so many things go unsaid. No ones fault per se. Just facts.

    As a Black person, I fucking hate these "Black Pain" movies....Idk why can't we just make fantasy movies and sh!t??? Just like that bullsh!t Antebellum. Black filmmakers just won't let Black folks be successful in movies without the "Black pain" sh!t...They can have these well off white families in movies and they don't have this type of shit in it, they're going on vacations, lavish parties, or like indie movies like It Follows or something, etc...Why won't PoC make ACTUALLY enjoyable movies like that without "Black Pain" and racism being involved. I'd like some more horror movies like US that didn't have "Black Pain" cliché, and action movies like Mission Impossible, heist movies like Oceans 11, fantasy movies with dragons or space travel movies, just SOMETHING. There are too many "Black Pain" movies and not every Black person watch them or find them interesting when a new one comes out.

    Honestly, I am not much interested in pro-black advocacy - I don't use words like BIPOC, etc. Just being honest. But I've always wanted to hear/see intra-community relations talked about/otherwise discussed among black people. I think this in-community relations have things to do with being LGBTQ and not coming out, keeping "hard" drug use a secret, etc. So, nice to see in-community black-on-black racism discussed/pictured here. There is not much of this in media.

    Love these movies. It always brings the fact that people of colour no matter who they are can be racist. Even though in today's society everyone tried to make whites the main cause of racism.

  • Derforst

    Why not tell the police that he's kept in the house against his will by armed black inviduals, as terrible as it would be, that certainly would amp up his changes of being resqued and avoid any of the "police is here! Sike! Bad person kills the police"

  • BusyChrissy

    Voodoun was our originally religion. Until they came and colonized and implanted their religion within us smh. Now "hoodoo" thats the evil form of voodoo. When she says "get the poison out of him" she means to cleanse him of his usage of cellphones and the material world.

    So this is like skeleton key but teaching the protagonist to believe in hoodo backfired because his background allows him to be a practitioner and use it to fight back. Cool.

    This review was not a favorite of mine and I've been subscribed for quite a while.There truly was a missed opportunity here. The themes that this movie touches on are so deep and relevant. This review didn't do this movie any justice. And that's really unfortunate. But I suppose I don't come here for that and I won't let my expectations allow me to make the mistake again.
