Entertaining, far from Prescient but refreshingly self-aware


Spike Lee in telling the story of Ron Stallworth now could have been a foreshadowing of the present climate if it were told 5 years earlier.

In the theater I was in there was indeed laughter but it was always tempered against the stark reality of what was happening in trying to take the "Organization" and it's ideas mainstream. This was a well done passion piece by Spike and all of the actors who bought in and delivered great performances.

I really enjoyed the parallel snippets of life and POV's of the two sides. There is a point where the Police Commander is doing a threat assessment of both groups after hearing about potential acts of violence and both are deemed not credible. The false equivalency of the two groups was jarring for me as much then as it is today.

I saw it last Saturday and I am still thinking about the movie.

Blacks kill more other blacks in one year than the KKK ever did in their entire history. You're just wrong.

The reason the media wants you to view right wing anti-establishment politics as "home grown terrorists" is because they're a bunch of rich Jews who need us to keep funding the banks and fighting wars for Israel.

The Media can't convince YOU to buy Monistat 7 how in the world are they gonna convince YOU to view anything any which way?

What does any of what you typed have to do with Spike Lee as a director or BlackKklansman as a movie?

White people kill more White people every year than Muslim extremists ever have, and yet, I bet you still care about muslim extremists, don't you?

Stop deflecting, idiot.

I saw this movie the other night. It was a good movie, rather intense, and the fact that an African-American cop was infiltrating/investigating the Ku Klux Klan was quite interesting, indeed. Spike Lee, who's made some very good films, did a good job of directing the film Blackkklansman, as well.
