As the popular Moorish Scholar Taj Tarik Bey would say “…they’re going to solve this Negro problem one way or another.” As I reflect on that statement, it brings me back to something my young cousin said to me. He said, “Trump is the type to institute a purge.”
He was only 14 when he said that to me and it was on the eve of the election. Art imitates life, but in today’s society life imitates Art as a norm via suggestive programming and neurolinguistic programming.
So I find it ironic that the prequel to the series of ‘The Purge’ movie series via the trailer, appears to be about Privileged White folks with Corporations and Government contracts who seek to use Black folks and the Urban Projects as the first subjects of the purge.
According to the Official synopsis from their youtube page:
“To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) test a sociological theory that vents aggression for one night in one isolated community. But when the violence of oppressors meets the rage of the marginalized, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.”
The concept of this movie makes you wonder what America has in store for Black America. We can already see the racial tensions are boiling over with every passing day. The reality is that Black Americans are sitting ducks if an actual purge is sanctioned by the Government. Keep in mind this Country once legalized privatized slavery and involuntary servitude.
Black Americans only comprise about 12-13% of the US population. Black Americans are also the poorest Americans, and the most marginalized. They are also more likely to be discriminated against. Overall the movie will probably be as good as the other movies, and at the end of the day, it’s only a movie right? Leave a comment, let me know what you all think and also like share and subscribe.
