Raymong Tyler - Okay Who Saw... The Woman King?
Muhammad Rasheed -Oof. Never. I'm boycotting it.
Black Americans! Do NOT spend money to see The Woman King! It glorifies one of the key Trans-Atlantic Slave Trading groups. It insults the Black Diaspora in general and especially the American Descendants of Slavery (#ADOS).

MzJay Lenore - @Muhammad... Have you seen it. How much history of different African ethnic groups have you studied and how often do you see beautiful strong black women portrayed on major screens....
MzJay Lenore - It actually addresses that African tribes traded and enslaved turned over to different European slavers.
Leslie Evans - @Muhammad... 🙄🙄🙄I can't roll my eyes enough at this rebuttal. The Dahomey nor Benin are making any money from this movie. It's "inspired" by them it's not Executive Produced by the History Channel. We allow white movies to take artistic license but don't give the same to our own...

withdraw from commercial or social relations with (a country, organization, or person) as a punishment or protest.
"we will boycott all banks which take part in the loans scheme"

Try not to hurt yourself.

How do you know? In the promo for the film, one of the producers was in Africa making a deal with some of the people over there.

Leslie wrote: "We allow white movies to take artistic license but don't give the same to our own..."
This is not "our own." This is literally taking real life villains who sold Black Americans' ancestors to the European trading companies and making them fictional heroes and marketing it to get us to support it. This is not "our own," but our literal enemies who sold "our own."
Black Americans should boycott this offensive filth.
Leslie Evans - @Muhammad... Africa is a continent not a country. It was filmed in South Africa so its possible that the producer made a "deal" to film there...obviously. You typed a lot of quotes but still no valid reasoning for being a hater.

It's also possible that the wealthy white woman floating on a Hollywood budget went to Benin to discuss some stuff with the leaders there. Lots of things are possible... obviously.
Leslie wrote: "You typed a lot of quotes but still no valid reasoning for being a hater."
I guess you didn't read down that far then. Not wishing to support a film that turns my people's old enemies into heroes is a good enough reason for me. You must be immigrant-tied to be so unreasonable.
Your mom is from Jamaica. That's why you are being unreasonable against the perfectly reasonable stance taken by the Black American activists, because you don't care and you like partnering with our ideological foes against us. #SolvedIt
Leslie Evans - 🤣🤣🤣the irony of a man with Muslim ties(at least)to say that like Muslims didn't have their own slave trade for which they benefitted from. The hypocrisy 🤦🏽♀️
Muhammad Rasheed - (As a jamaican, you ain't "my own" either btw; you're very deceitful)
Leslie wrote: "the irony of a man with Muslim ties(at least)to say that like Muslims didn't have their own slave trade for which they benefitted from. The hypocrisy"
You're using irony wrong. Muslims participated in the slave trade for the same reason Jews, Christians & pagans did: Because it was insanely lucrative, not because it was part of the faith. In fact, during the early Islamic period when the piety in the new faith was strongest, the slave institution was almost wiped out just from doing it the way God commanded from the Qur'an. It was brought back later because, again, slavery is insanely lucrative and humans are weak.
By the way, I'm Muslim because my Black American parents converted to the faith in the '60s-70s and my own studies pointed the way towards it being the correct spiritual path for me.
Thanks for playing! 🙂
Leslie Evans - FYI I'm equal parts Jamaican and American... So Muslims can do it for the money but they get a pass from you but African tribes do it for the same reason and you're leading a protest
🤔. Yeah. That makes sense.
Muhammad Rasheed - Leslie wrote: "FYI I'm equal parts Jamaican and American..."
So are many of the equally immigrant-tied sellouts who routinely disparage Black Americans when we stand up for ourselves.
Leslie wrote: "So Muslims can do it for the money but they get a pass from you but African tribes do it for the same reason and you're leading a protest"
This is foolishness. A "Muslim" is a practitioner of the religion of Al-Islam. Someone can be dead wrong and still be a practitioner of the faith. There have always been LOTS of Muslims in Africa... it's possible that some among the actual traders who attacked & seized my actual ancestors were Muslims. This has nothing to do with anything.
The point, is that this film glorifies the most notorious group of African slave traders and that is unacceptable—whether some of them were Muslim converts or not.
Leslie Evans - I'll take your name-calling as you getting defensive. That's sad for you. There were many African tribes that benefited from slavery. Just like your people, they benefitted from it. You not supporting a movie won't change that history. No one can take away from the work those actresses put in to tell the story. It was beautifully made from the accents to the fight scenes. Excellent film! Good story, NOT A DOCUMENTARY and it doesn't claim to be.

So, you two don't know what 'boycott' means, nor 'defensive.' Got it.

Leslie wrote: "There were many African tribes that benefited from slavery."
And the Dahomey were the MOST NOTORIOUS of the lot.
Leslie wrote: "Just like your people, they benefitted from it."
lol My people haven't benefitted from it at all. Not only did my ever-complicit US government refuse to do right by us after both slavery and forced jim crow segregation, but they signed the 1965 Immigration & Naturalization Act as the direct counter to the 1964 Civil Rights and 1965 Voting Rights Acts to bring over the "POC/BIPOC" immigrants to erase/replace me so they could get out of paying my Reparatory Justice debt. That's where you come in and it's why you act the way you do. The result is that I'm the ever-abused wealthless bottom caste in this country I've built and the only way to free myself from yet MORE foolishness from both white supremacists and diabolical skinfolk alike, is to unify along my unique lineage & heritage under our own political advocacy group.
Leslie wrote: "You not supporting a movie won't change that history."
That's a strawman effigy. Who said it would "change the history" by refusing to monetarily support propaganda?
Leslie wrote: "No one can take away from the work those actresses put in to tell the story."
Who cares? I'm sure Viola's performance was amazing; I'm still not watching it.
Leslie wrote: "NOT A DOCUMENTARY and it doesn't claim to be."
lol Give it time. If we allow them to, they will build a film library of retconned fictionalized "sheroes" and will eventually make exactly that claim. That's how political propaganda pretending to be "just entertainment" works.
MzJay Lenore - @Muhammad... I am awhere of what boycott means... I was questioning... when did you decide .... trying to influence others not watch something that you have made assumptions about... wondering If you were justified in holding a pre conceived idea of what this particular movie was about.....
I just saw the response... I worked all day...
Last word is not always spoken.
Usually when people boycott. They should be clear on how why and how to make the issue better...
I am Curious on how you plan to re-educate, produce or create piece of work that could give a piece of history... show raw talent, entertain enlighten and show women of African decent to be seen as woman warriors that they were/are
Muhammad Rasheed - MzJay wrote: "I am awhere of what boycott means..."
Clearly not, or you wouldn't have asked me that after seeing I was advocating for boycott.
MzJay wrote: "that you have made assumptions about..."
I know who the dahomey are and I know who white people are.
MzJay wrote: "They should be clear on how why and how to make the issue better..."
lol Financially supporting insults conjured by my active enemy in the earth ain't it.
MzJay wrote: "I am Curious on how you plan to"
It sounds suspiciously like someone who I found actually advocating for my people to financially support insults conjured by my active enemy in the earth is trying to task me for something she was too [fill-in-the-blank] to do herself.
Curious. Did you really spend all day to come up with this? 🤨
MzJay Lenore - No 5 minutes... fb was off my radar while I worked today... I thought for one minute, whether to respond to you...
My words are for others to see...not trying to influence you. You are not my audience. Go see the movie people!!!
Muhammad Rasheed - MzJay wrote: "I thought for one minute, whether to respond to you..."
How did that work out? 🤔
Muhammad Rasheed - You need to flex that 'black girl magic' harder. Or put some fresh batteries in it.
@Babs007Uganda - You're the Anti-Black ones, Truly.
Muhammad Rasheed - We're the only "Black" ones. You're Ugandan, remember? Be proud of your heritage. I am of mine. #WeAreNotTheSame
It's funny that you SEE who the dahomey are, yet you partner with them to spew hate at ADOS. You are the white supremacist's support class, truly.
