"I'd never seen a real-life Congolese negro before, but I really wanted him on my plantation. So, I called up my buddy who's an expert on Congolese negroes to come and take a closer look."

The part where Larry the Cable Guy played a plantation overseer and kept shouting "git-r-done" to the slaves was in especially poor taste.

A reboot is overdue, they should make it a musical about vampire enslaving werewolves with a zombie epidemic in the background. They should not forget to put in a characters that children will like, that was sadly missing from the original. And I hope they don't forget the merchandising this time, "Team Master" and "Team Slave" t-shirts should be best sellers for Christmas.

It would be way more offensive if it were called Coon Stars. And they used the same obese white family but they appraised human chattel.

hermitage_deux: folks can watch Roots and see the lords owning their slaves, and it's crystal clear...

but when folks watch films about the european monarchs...  they fail to see that the serfs are slaves.. and instead identify with the lords.  so instead of (rightfully) wishing to smash the brains out of the royals.. they watch it as a romantic ideal situation.

/ in films about the lords and ladies... we are the serfs.
// there's some lovely filth over here!
/// i thought we were an autonomous collective.  you're fooling yourself !!


BLOODY PEASANT! I ORDER you to be QUIET!

Wrong. There are no ancient aliens, just the Original scientists that built the Mother Wheel in what we now call Japan. I also have it on good authority that the white race was created on a Greek island by an evil a scientist named Yakub.

Man, I made the mistake of watching a few episodes of Ancient Aliens last night and now my mind is full of fark. Many of the guys on that show aren't claiming that alien visitation during human history was something of a possibility but rather an indisputable fact. I felt like Gandalf: Tell me, when did the History Channel abandon historical programming for crackpottery!?
