Utopia Talk / Politics / OT - An Important Mini-Series To Watch

Most of you are too young to have seen this particular mini-series. When it was first shown it took the country by storm. All across the country folks were having parties or just some friends getting together to watch it. There were on average 7 or 8 of us that got together every week to watch it.

I had forgotten how good it is and what an important story it tells.

A man named Alex Haley traced his family tree back to 1750 when his ancestor, Kunta Kinte, was captured in Africa, brought to America and sold into slavery.

I just finished hour #6 and I would be remiss if I did not tell you guys about it in hopes that some of you will watch it and enjoy it as much as I am in this current watching.


The name of the mini-series, if you haven't guessed it already is, "ROOTS."

We aren't stupid. We know what Roots is. It's one of the most famous mini-series ever made. Stop thinking that just because you are an old fuck that you know more than everyone else.

I did not say that any of you were stupid.

What I said is that most of you were too young to have seen it when it first aired in 1977. That was 40 years ago.

It was shown at least one perhaps two or three times since then I'm sure. If you have seen it then I am happy for you if you enjoyed it.


As I have told you a number of times, you should avoid my threads They just upset you because you are not old enough to understand the concept of sharing.

Probably not smart enough either.


BTW, did you?

"when it first aired in 1977"

Yeah, when it first aired. And guess what, dumbass? It's aired a million times since then.

woo, it is too deep for you.

But you would enjoy the parts where the black man is whipped and had his foot chopped off.

The book was originally described as "fiction," yet sold in the non-fiction section of bookstores. Haley spent the last chapter of the book describing his research in archives and libraries to support his family's oral tradition with written records. However, historians and genealogists found critical errors in his research. Most of the novel is either unsupported or contradicted by the available evidence.


Courlander's [plagiarism] suit was settled out of court for $650,000 (equivalent to $2.4 million in 2017) and an acknowledgment from Haley certain passages within Roots were copied from The African.[16]

.....

Ronald Reagan, who had run for president in 1976 and was preparing to do so again in 1980, called the TV series “anti-white” propaganda meant to stir up unrest in the inner cities.

So where can I see Roots?

Are there any good actors in it, like Will Smith or Harisson Ford?

Hot Rod:

The killer that you defend played a small part in the original series.

Just about everyone and anyone made an appearance in the original series.

I said you, not me.

Huge difference.



You can get the DVD from Amazon for $19.95. I imagine some libraries might have it.
