Is Hollyweird making slavery films to keep Blacks down?

Nick Cannon Talks About Slave Movies

Via SB Mag:

If you’ve been paying close attention to the latest movies centered around black characters for the last few years, you can probably notice a trend. The increasing popularity of slave movies as well as films centered around blacks being maids and butlers is pretty hard to ignore. And although these movies keep finding a way to the big screen to a point of redundancy, they seem to instantly garner critical acclaim and Oscar buzz.

Apparently Nick Cannon has noticed the trend too because he recently took to his Twitter account to slam slave movies. And with all the Oscar buzz currently surrounding the hit film “12 Years a Slave” and the recent confirmation that “Roots” will be remade, his timing surely can’t be coincidental.

Nick Cannon say he’s disturbed by White Hollyweird’s depiction of Blacks and wants to make a different type of film based on the lives of our ancestors:

Do you think Hollywood is continuing to make slave movies to portray Blacks negatively or help narrate our complex and nuanced past? Why can’t African Americans have movies about slavery AND the the history of African royalty?

Hit the flip to peep Nick blast Hollywood for its latest slavery movies…
