@Aleah W. My father-in-law grew up in Illinois and visits them frequently. His words, not mine, "We might drive around with [rebel] flags on our trucks in Tennessee but up there they keep hoods in their closets." I've never visited my wife's family.
You bring up a good point. Also, there was a different kind of subjugation, too: anti-Catholic and immigrants. Some years ago I worked with a guy who was 1st generation Irish . He told me horror stories of how deluded the pious North was in regards to their innocence. He read the letters from his relatives and told me stories about one in particular who was cut with a broken bottle after trying to attend mass.
Hey, hey ,hey guys towards the end of the review I felt like Cyrus was getting picked on. Why pick on the white guy, what have white people ever done to... oh, um, er never mind, lol.
My wife has already talked about seeing this movie, if I do I think I'll just rent it (has that vibe to me). On a side note I made it almost through The Great Debaters. It was the scene with the lynching and fire that did it to me. I wanted to go out and gather up a group to beat up white people! That scene leaves an ink stain on one's psyche. It is hard to believe that only several decades back the simple quite elderly people I know today would have tolerated such atrocities.
With all its flaws, at least films like this invite conversation about issues that are still relevant and shouldn’t be forgotten.
BTW, the North was just as bad. Don’t get it twisted anti-slavery didn’t mean pro-Black. I’m from Oregon and we had Black exclusion laws that made it illegal for Blacks to even live here originally and in the early 20th century plenty of legal segregation. Hey, just do a Google image search for The Coon Chicken Inn Restaurant …
