Maybe I missed something.
What made it a must see good movie Kem?


It told the story well. It showed how traitors are made. It showed how and why we are targeted. It showed that power wants no challenge to it's authority. Most of all, which is why I say white people should see this movie, it shows how we ended up with 45. Moreover, why his incidious message worked.

'Judas and the Black Messiah'
Kem,
It would be rather hard (at lest from here) to ignore the trying to tie into the Christian passion play thing theme with any opening title like Judas and the..........choose what ever flavor you like.
But you liked the story (parable) of the thirteen(?) steps and 30 pieces of silver Judas took for the betrayal of Jesus? To that I get your point in the viewing of the film even though to me judas is a dead soul on arrival, always has been and always will be. In fact I guess as a kind of testament to the movie every time the actor portraying O'Neill came on screen I had a visceral gut reaction........BUT that was because I know more of the back ground from the Messiah part of the passion play and that is what was lacking..........that what was SORELY and FATALLY lacking to complete the passion play narrative, the Messiah. Why was his message so dangerous? And I summit no one would walk away from from this film having the foggiest notion without at least some fore knowledge of what Hampton was trying to accomplish. So where is the Messiah in this passion play? That he fell in love and created a baby? Is that it? Hell, even Judas did that before his end.
Where is the Messiah in the play Kem. Or is the film supposed to be just another splintered off shoot of Waiting for Godot?

Heres a Judas parable I think does as good if not better told in a 7 seven minute story (as you seem to tend toward the biblical parables)

So what made Fred so dangerous to the powers that be and bringing the whole weight of the US down upon him? Did you get any sense of the why beyond that he was a black man? Where was the Messiah's part of the story? He wasn't a Messiah just because he happened to be black. Where were the shoulders he stood on? i.e. what propelled, no, compelled him to his crucifixion? (carrying on your passion play theme). It seemed to me Fred Hampton was MIA in this film which after all who is supposed to be at least half of the story. So he isn't so much there other than a prop? Excuse me! I need to find a tree or bush I can puke behind.

Most of all, which is why I say white people should see this movie, it shows how we ended up with 45. Moreover, why his incidious message worked.
I think that statement is really really really a looooooooooooong stretch Kem.

30 pieces of silver equaled a few hundred, a car ( his in ) and the title to a gas station.

The J Edgar Hoover character explained it. He had blacks, hispanics, white supremacists, etc. all under one banner. The original Rainbow Coalition. ( Coopted by Jessie Jackson ?!!? ) To Hoover, all the poor and disenfranchised were all but aligned with the commies. Therefore, ....

Whites see it, they will get it and pass it on ( hopefully )

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
