movies like The Butler are for black people who are in denial about how far we’ve come and to make white people cry about how fucked up their people are from the comfort and safety of a dark theatre.
I didn’t watch because Lee Daniels is anti-black woman and anti-black as fuck and I don’t need to support oppressive ass black men especially those that demonize blackness for interviews in order to posture as one of the GOOD NEGROES.
White people - stop watching movies like the butler and actually do some history changing! we don’t need your tears! we don’t want your tears! we want you to tell your people about white supremacy, and to not think because you teachin’ that you’re above any one of them because you’re not! As long as you benefit from mine and others oppression you are the oppressor!
