Did Harriet Give Enough Slave Reference?









Hey, I went to see Harriet the movie about a week ago and I really enjoyed it. However, I began watching some reviews about the film and I was very disappointed. Many of the reviews called the movie trash or very far from the truth. So this is my perception of the film, Harriet was outstanding! I felt that it was cast perfectly, directed great and had good historical reference.
I have a problem with us as a society expecting to continue in this same racial cycle. Especially Black people we want to move forward and want others to treat us different but we get mad when books, music or movies don't continue to show the demon that was slavery. I'm in no way trying to minimize slavery but how many movies do we need to watch about beatings, raping and lynching to know what our people went through.
Yes, I feel that Harriet had enough slave reference, the movie showed balance which is what we need. We are in a climate right now where there is so much racial tension that we need to stop trying to be a victim because we have overcome so much, yes we have a long way to go but victory is near.
