A new word has been invented for "nigger lover," viz. "apologist." That's the first time I come across it. But it is funny to find that politically correct word. I guess the word "racist" has been replaced by "apocalypsist." It is amazing how long it may take some people to just come down from their satisfied little protected sanctuary and realize that they are locking themselves up in a mental ghetto.
a slave again, Thanks Abraham Obama!, February 2, 2013
This is an admirable adventure
film and it probably reflect a deep change in American culture concerning the
Blacks, African Americans. So far the great authors and playwrights dealing
with the Blacks only or practically only showed the villainous hardships of
slavery. This film surely shows a lot of that, but with a different eye than in
Toni Morrison's Beloved or many other novels. It shows slavery as the most
cruel and absurd social system ever invented but once again from a new point of
view, that of a black man who gets out of slavery by accident and gets in
business with a German immigrant and shares with him the profession of bounty
hunter. That means he can ride a horse and kill white people, provided it is
under the authority of his white associate and under the sanctimonious
authority of a court-ordered mission, that of catching some fugitive criminals
dead or alive.
This black man has a vengeance to
fulfill since his wife has been sold away to another planter, one of the worst
I will not deflower the film and tell you the details. This black man, Django,
wants to find his wife and free her and in the end, of course, he will succeed,
but what an adventure.
The new element in this film is
that beyond slavery, and we are just before the Civil War, some Blacks are
recapturing their desire to be free beyond their fate of obedience. That fate
is explained by the planter as being the result of some kind of a "malformation"
of the skull. It is of course the result of nothing but the Post Traumatic
Stress Syndrome (PTSS) they have been through in the daily suffering imposed
onto them mostly for the pure and simple pleasure of the white planters and
their white associates who are all shown over and over again as nothing but
We are here in a postcolonial
approach that is only possible because the Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, also
called Post Traumatic Slavery Syndrome is finding some kind of a solution, some
healing procedure, some way of stepping over it and moving on. This has been a
slow and long procedure and the Civil Rights movement, Martin Luther King, and
now Barack Obama, and many others before and in-between, have been instrumental
in that evolution. Blacks or African Americans are finally finding their
self-respect, their self-freedom, their self-pride back and they can finally
decolonialize their own souls, their own minds, as the CNN wrote so rightly on
November 22, 2012. And when one's mind is free of any colonial heritage the sky
is the limit and the White House is the first step to that sky.
Of course the film is
unrealistic, the weapons are as effective as missile throwers if not even
rockets launched by some drone from the sky. Of course there is too much blood.
But it is the first time some of the cruelty of these slave-owners is finally
shown, alluded to and defused into absolute punishment. To be free in your soul
you must be convinced your torturers have been punished, even those who were
silent if not consenting witnesses. That means you have to finally remember and
reconcile with and recommit yourself to the future and no longer remain
enslaved to the past. That means forgiving the descendants of your torturers
and that means the descendants of your torturers have to finally step over
their belief you are inferior, which makes them superior without having to
That's why this film is great. It
is really the beginning of the end, maybe even the beginning of the day after

An apologist from France
...now I've seen everything.
This movie isn't a homage to the most unqualified President in our history;
it's just another Quientin Tarantino shoot 'em up. And guess what? Most of the
population in the US
never had slave owning ancestors. Get over yourself. Unless of course you're
trolling, and if that's the case... sorry, not funny.

Have you heard of Post Traumatic Slavery
Syndrome by the best qualified psychiatrists and neuroscience researchers in
Note I am not from France
am in France
but I am from Gascony
. Maybe you do
not make a difference between Georgia
True both states start with an S end end with a Y.
Have a good day. and be sure I am no apologist. I do not have time to waste on
being such an intellectually reduced mind.

Wow, an arrogant tool as well! I'd be careful before you
accuse another of being intellectually deficent. Yes, I've heard of your made
up disorder - it is just that, a misnomer. And I'm sorry, but your words are
exactly that of an apologist, whether you're from France
though with your esteemed accredidations I'm sure you'd have picked that up. By
the way, you usually end a question with a question mark, though again I'm sure
you're already aware of such a grammatical disparity. Continue on with your
ranting garbled reviews that you try and pass off as high intellectual
writings. A soul doctor indeed; it may be time to leave a classroom, pull your
lips away from Obama's rear end, and take a walk in the real world.

An "apologist" isn't a term that has anything to
do with the noun "apology." But kudos on your ability to read the
dictionary. It's a term for those who feel guilty over slavery, or any type of
event that had nothing to do with you, and feel the need to make some type of
amends to descendants who have no memory or were involved in said events in any
case. That's what you are doing. There's no such thing as Post Traumatic
Slavery Syndrome; no african American today was involved in that horrid time.
It's simply used as an excuse and crutch by many today. I don't have what
you're describing, at all; and most don't. It's a far left APOLOGIST misnomer.
You feel guilty for reading and understanding history, and are unable to
seperate yourself from said events. That's sad, in every sense of the word.
Nothing poor about me, but you seriously need to get some help. You defend so
called "victims" so vehemently, when there's no victim to defend
anymore. The Civil War, and slavery, are long done. All that's left are those
who perpetually use a historical event to mask their own deficinces.
I love when the so called "educated" try to talk down to those who I
can guarantee have far more intelligence and education than you do, usually by
attempting to qoute an innocous source and twisting it to your own end. You
must fit into whatever university you wear your patched sleeve tweed coat at
every day. In any event, you're incredibly boring, and I won't be responding
anymore. And for the record, the great President Abraham Lincoln isn't and
never was related to or involved with the farce that is Barack Hussein Obama;
they don't belong in any type of comparison or combination, in thought or word.

Since Derek Nye will not respond anymore, which I regret,
let me tell him, or you for you to tell him, that he is missing many points.
It is the Catholic Church of the USA that for the first time considered the
Catholics, hence all Americans since the Catholic Church considers itself as
universal, had to "remember, reconcile and recommit" themselves to
serving justice for and to American Indians. I just wonder why Congress just
passed big packages of reparations to Reservation Indians and Black farmers or
sharecroppers, or their descendants?
Mr Derek Nye rejects Obama. Who cares? Obama was just very fairly re-elected
which was not the case of some others.
But Mr Derek Nye should get out of his images: I do not teach in a public
university. I do not wear patched sleeve tweed coats. I am not from his picture
The use of apologist with that meaning of his is so far not listed in
dictionaries. I found another approach though:
"Starting Out as an Apologist
"People often ask, "How should I begin to train myself to defend my
faith? How do I prepare for the inevitable knock on the door? I don't want to
have to stand there open-mouthed." The best place to start your homework
is the Bible. Almost every American home has one. It's either a well-worn,
well-used book (if that's how it is in your home, you may skip the next several
paragraphs), or it's the book with the thickest layer of dust. " (Robert
H. Brom, Bishop of San Diego, August 10, 2004)
If Bible we take, let me ask you how many generations of children are supposed
to be held responsible for the mistakes and sins of the parents? Isn't it 7 or
so? Hence 7 x 30 = 210 years. There is still a lot of water to run under the
bridges of your conscience before 1865 + 210 = 2075.
Your attitude and discourse, Mr Derek Nye is only there to disenfranchise
yourself from your responsibility to yourself and to your fellow citizens,
Blacks and Whites and Latinos and Asians. I regret that state of mind which is
in many ways the negation of the mind itself.
Have a good evening.
