an award-winning documentary, suggests not
Senator Barak Obama, who has barely served two years in the US Senate, feels that he is qualified to be President and the left agrees with him. But would they feel that way if he was a Republican . . . like Lt. Gov. Michael Steele, Ken Blackwell, Lynn Swann, Keith Butler or Alan Keyes? All of these candidates were ignored not because of the color of their skin, but the content of their character . . . and their choice in political parties.
The new award-winning documentary, Emancipation Revelation Revolution dissects the roles that both political parties have played in the Civil Rights Movement, and what happens to blacks who leave the liberal plantation and embrace the party of Lincoln.
Emancipation Revelation Revolution discusses the Civil Rights Movement from the abolition of slavery, to the ending of segregation in the 1960s. But it explains that that movement would not have been necessary if one political party had not fought so hard to oppose abolition, equal rights, and even the right for blacks.
It traces the legacy of both parties showing the Republican party, founded by liberal Democrats specifically to abolish slavery, and the Democratic party that worked to overturn every single civil rights law passed by Republicans.
Dr. Alveda King relives the time, with images and commentary, of growing up in the segregated South as the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King. Gloria Jackson, great granddaughter of Booker T. Washington talks about his legacy and how it has been all but forgotten in America because he did not embrace radical views like W.E.B. Dubois.
Several conservative black leaders, such as Star Parker, Jesse Peterson, Bishop Harry Jackson, Mason Weaver, Rev. O’Neal Dozier, talk about how they were treated during segregation. And they talk about the new philosophical discrimination they endure today, and the names they are called when they identify themselves as conservative.
“Would Barak Obama be treated the same way if he embraced the same ideals and values? Would he be ridiculed, called Uncle Tom, have Oreo cookies thrown at him if he dared leave the party that founded the KKK and embrace the party that was founded to abolish slavery?” asks Niger Innis of CORE. These double standards and hypocrisies are discussed in the film.
“Senator Biden who suggests that Barak Obama is the first bright, clean, articulate black to run for office, needs to see this movie,” explains Mychal Massie of Project 21. “He would realize that the first 23 blacks to serve in the U.S. Congress were there over 150 years ago . . .and seven had been ex-slaves. And”, he adds, “They were all bright, clean, articulate, and . . . Republicans.”
