The Birth of a Nation

The Birth of a Nation

“As the helpless whites look on”

Saying this is an important film is like saying Avengers: Endgame is an important film. It’s not technically false, they did shape society for worse by their mere existence, that’s kind of relevant or important in a way, but they are also both grandiose products from deep pockets meant to be consumed in mass.

The only real difference is this one features ideas and hate that exist even to this day, tell me that quote I just wrote isn’t literally something you’re likely to hear today.

Nothing says blockbuster like an epic team up with like minded individuals to fend off the strange invaders of “your land”. Super heroes were a mistake.
