Critic Reviews for American Blackout
Ian Inaba assembles compelling evidence to support his claim that African-Americans -- who are traditionally more likely to vote Democratic -- are being deliberately and systematically excluded from the political process.
The movie includes a postscript about [McKinney's] loss, blaming it on more dirty tricks. That may be true, but it doesn't put the steam back in the film.
American Blackout makes a credible case, with some of its most damning evidence coming from the mouths of the conservatives themselves.
An illuminating, infuriating document that paints McKinney as a true American heroine and patriot and confirms your worst fears about just how rotten our 'democratic' process is at its core.
Audience Reviews for American Blackout
This documentary should be mandatory. I'm disgusted by what I learned. And I'm doubly disgusted that this information is not common knowledge. Please rent it and watch. I watched on the recommendation of my cousin. Thanks George.
Yet another well made political documentary. Appropriately fierce and uncompromising film detailing Black/minority disenfranchisement and violation of basic civil rights (in some ways replacing lynching as a tool of social control), all set to the soothing sounds of DJ Shadow's Endtroducing album.
Everyone needs to see this documentary. It follows Cynthia McKinney's Congressional career (including the smear campaign against her) and the 2000 and 2004 voting crimes the Republicans orchestrated and successfully accomplished namely in Florida and Ohio. Cynthia McKinney is truly a hero!
