Judging by This Academy Voter's Quote, 'Selma' Never Had a Shot - Mic


Stashed in: That's racist!

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

"The whole film is kind of a left-wing, modern, black rap version — there's no white people who have any speaking parts who are favorably depicted, when, in fact, there were white people on the scene, beyond a few ministers, who risked their lives and who died supporting the civil rights efforts."

And there you have it. After a prolonged wind-up, our anonymous commentator lets it fly, deriding the film as "black rap version" of, well, he doesn't say. We can infer that he felt it had a certain edge that he associates with "black rap," which is by the tone of the statement a really bad thing.
