    I think the videos speak for themselves, but I just wanted to add my opinion that EXACTLY the way Farrakhan speaks about The Color Purple in this video series, is how I felt/feel about Precious (and The Color Purple). I feel Precious achieves the same, and worse, as The Color Purple. If you edit this video and put the word "Precious", where he says "The Color Purple", it would be the same thing. Please watch the WHOLE series, but I posted parts 4 and 5 because these parts particularly remind me the most of "Precious"

    Yeah.. precious has roots in the color purple.. And Alice Walker and Saphire
    are from the same generation of lesbian women.. Saphire mentions the Color
    purple throughout the book.. and she also mentions Farrakahn throughout
    the book.. Farrakahn is what the character Precious repeatedly
    calls a real man. They cut that out of the movie though.. and also the
    references to Langston Hughes.. But that's what you get when you put
    together a group of black men hating folks.. everyone from the writers, to
    the producers to the director has problems with black men.. and that's the
    reality of what we face.. ​

    probably because you mastered the pics, he mastered the mic...ie


    you capture their attention behind camera lenses, he does it from behind pulpits...

    it does not hurt that he has a nation behind him either..

    yes indeed, the bashaing of bm is at an all time high. A full scale war against black families is also in full effect. We are only shown in our extreme worst on TV. And historically since the 1970s when specifically a bw who has something bad to say, write, or produce about black society that makes bm look bad, they are held in high esteem among whites. Many bw have become attck dogs for their white massas against bm as this new age bw proclaims she is too succesful for a bro and only a wm can fullfil her fantasies and needs. Rare it is that bw like Condeleeza Rice, Serena an Venus who had strong black fathers are listened to or encouraged to speak positively of their strong black fathers.

    Only if you accept they are speaking to and about you. People will always try to put you in a box. The only way they can get you there is if you let them put you there.
