The Birth of a Nation:- Watch The Birth of a Nation on Youtube on Fire,Set against the antebellum South, THE BIRTH OF A NATION follows Nat Turner (Nate Parker), a literate slave and preacher, whose financially strained owner, Samuel Turner (Armie Hammer), accepts an offer to use Nat’s preaching to subdue unruly slaves. As he witnesses countless atrocities – against himself and his fellow slaves – Nat orchestrates an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom. I’ve read a few of the comments here – and for those of you who understood context and the severity of the human condition for blacks during this time – it goes without saying that Nat Turner was well within his right to fight for his life (and therefore, the following paragraphs are not for you).For those of you who regard this film as “propaganda” or “racist crap”, I am not surprised. Your real dismay is that the story is live for the entire world to see. Tough. If you push anyone too far – even a slave – then you get pushed back. Considering the treatment of blacks during that period, why would you dismiss his pain or that of any other “slave”? Naysayers of this film are idiots and quite comical. I gather that you’d prefer it when the racist whites – of that era and this – had the upper hand and everyone else cowered. Tough. Naysayers aren’t upset with the film – they are upset with the truth. To that I say lastly – tough.
