Left wing narrative now is that racial tensions are at the highest it’s ever been. Ok, really? I wonder what is creating all this suppose madness - Yep –
the left wing media. I just went to my local Coffee Bean. All different races were waiting in line and all different races were having a conversation.
Same thing happened when I went to my local 24 hour fitness. I live in the outskirts of a large city with many different walks of life. Even when
I visit downtown, every race gets along quite well. I don’t see color but let’s not let identity politics die now, Democrat leaders need more voters.
Yes – there are many places in the U.S where racial tension is high but to frame it as if the whole country is fighting each other is very
wrong by the media. The media is talking about race relations a lot more now, I wonder why. It is not because of Trump but with Obama’s stirring up divisive
rhetoric during his reign that has increased the tensions. Trump is now feeling the effects of Obama’s and Media’s identity politics.
So here comes Hollywood to keep the tensions high with Detroit. The film is loosely based on the events of the Detroit riots in 1967.
Director Kartheryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal who brought you Zero Dark Thirty has now brought you a movie concerning racial
tensions amongst urban blacks and white cops. The writing is very bad in this movie. I am not trying to say that race relations in
Detroit in 1967 were not important but the dialogue and logic of the screenplay was all over the place. There are many instances in
the movie when you are thinking, “Huh, that doesn’t make sense.” The acting was superb but even the performance by John Boyega could
not save the weak storyline. Bigelow tried to create a shock and awe scenario between races. She went over the top with the
characterizations of some of the key components of the movie. You want to sympathize with the characters but it’s hard to when your
brains keeps asking questions on why and how.
It’s an average movie.

By: I love red meat | August 4, 2017 Runtime: 2h 23min Rating: R Wide Release Date: August 4, 2017
Director: Kathryn Bigelow Cast: John Boyega, Anthony Mackie, Algee Smith
Bigelow is definitely a left wing activist. She has appeared with left wing politicians
and has donated to them as well. I like Boyega and the rest of the cast though. Since many right
wingers are on a boycott anything Hollywood lately – I would say go ahead and boycott Bigelow and this movie.
ReeYaa Score = Somewhat Disapprove
Leftist Social Engineering (LSE)
White people are sadist and black people are angels sent to Earth. This attempt as a biopic feels rushed and without proper guidance.
ReeYaa Score = High
Skip it and go watch Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. speeches.
