I Am Not Your Negro Reviews
James Baldwin was an intelligent, insightful and articulate man who described the world of race in America with depth and perception. This movie certainly did an admirable job of presenting his views and it should make everyone who watches it think. However, like so many presentations it is one sided and does little to explain the reasons for all the ills in the black community, short of blaming white America only. It would be interesting to see a more balanced view of the problems we face with race.
This important film shares Baldwin's views on racism at a point in his life where he was 63. Angry, tired, introspective, enlightened is how Baldwin comes across (in a letter read by Samuel L. Jackson and visualized brilliantly by Raoul Peck).
This is a film that needs to be shared in homes, schools and any venue where discussion can follow.
This documentary only uses the facts that benefits the story of the brought down black man. The black Panthers killed many white people but NO just show images of the long suffering black man. A lot of white people died fighting for black rights. a Lot of black people, back in the day agreed with segagration not just whites.
#blacklivesmatter is racist because all lives matter. Racism is ignorant and wrong no matter what color you are. Blacks are even racist towards other blacks. Saying your too dark too be pretty. When will it end?! Diversity is what makes America great. Let's move forward! This documentary moves backwords.
