Nate Parker

Nate Parker‘s scandal-plagued movie The Birth of a Nation is expected to flop at the box office this weekend. The slavery movie opened nationwide in 2,100 theaters on Friday.

The movie was a shoe-in for an Academy Award, but the Oscar hopes will end in disaster for the film’s troubled star, writer and director.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, media Guru Oprah Winfrey and her bestie Gayle King were among the first to view the film at a private screening in January.

Nate Parker Winfrey was so excited about the film’s Oscar chances that she and King sent Parker a Feb. 1 Instagram video congratulating him.

But the excitement was short lived.

By August, news reports were circulating about the rape charges involving Parker and Birth of a Nation co-writer, Jean Celestin.

The news was damning, but it was further complicated when the unidentified victim killed herself.

At first Winfrey was sympathetic to Parker’s plight. She tried to give him helpful suggestions.

Sources tell Hollywoodreporter.com that Winfrey suggested Parker sit down with King to discuss the rape case on her CBS talk show.

But Parker declined.

He was reportedly upset that the decades old rape case had become an issue — even though he attempted to play the victim by claiming he was falsely accused during a planned college tour to promote the film. The college tour was abruptly cancelled after the scandal careened out of control on social media.

Parker ignored Winfrey’s advice to be open and honest about the rape incident. Instead, he appeared as a guest on daytime talk shows where he repeatedly played the victim.

In an interview on Good Morning America this week, co-host Robin Roberts asked Parker about his glaring lack of empathy for his victim.

Parker argued arrogantly, “I was falsely accused, I was proven innocent and I’m not going to apologize for that.”

Director Judd Apatow said Parker missed his opportunity to address the rape culture that exists on college campuses.

“He has an opportunity to teach young men about the meaning of consent,” Apatow tweeted on Oct. 5. “He could do something that would help so many people.”

Executives for Fox Searchlight, which paid a record $17.5 million for the rights to distribute Birth of a Nation, are said to be frustrated over Parker’s arrogance and unwillingness to be humble.

The movie studio paid a boatload of money to public-relations consultants to do damage control. They gave Parker media training and helped him send the right message about sexual violence. But Parker ignored their advice as soon as the cameras started rolling.

“They gave him talking points and he just didn’t execute,” says an industry veteran.

Parker’s narcissism was on full display in an interview with Steve Harvey. Once again, Parker blamed others for his problems.

“What are these journalists trying to do?” he whined to Harvey. “Do they care about [me]?”

Hollywood insiders were stunned at Parker’s pompous attitude.

“You watch the Steve Harvey thing — you can’t find a more softball situation — and [Parker] is just simmering,” said a source close to the movie project.

Birth of Nation is on track for a soft opening of about $10 million or less in ticket sales this weekend.

Insiders say the movie will not recoup the budget the studio poured into making the film. ‘Nation’ will just barely make back Fox Searchlight’s initial $17.5 million investment.

Like typical narcissists, Parker has only himself to blame for his spectacular downfall.

“He will not have an easy time,” says a veteran producer. “He’s clearly a vital filmmaking voice. It’s maddening to watch it go so wrong. No one is hiring him at the moment. If they’re going to pay $17.5 million, you’ve got to do everything right.”

    But were they being confronted with it publicly? Robin, Phillip, even Heath all created a collective gasp when they passed. Whereas someone like Anna Nicole was always the face of tabloid Culture. In fact I remember when news hit she was rushed to the hospital…Idiots like Perez and that loser at Dlist made fun of her…Here we go again read the headlines…That they quickly edited to say RIP. The media refuses to let this man live. Many of the reasons they refuse to do so are obvious…

  • Scromes1212

    I was talking about human beings not rich or poor or white or black. Your past is always there. If you have demons they will come out one way or another. If you watch him discuss it there is clearly something there he is dealing with. He said hisself he felt morally wrong. And I don’t think for one minute that girls death doesn’t haunt this brother. But I prey for the brother cause I don’t think he is a evil person he just made a mistake that’s not going to go away cause you did a BET interview .

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    I shall give you an outline of action-but before that I shall assure you that distrust is stronger than trust and envy is stronger than adulation, respect, or admiration.
    The Black slave after receiving this indoctrination shall carry on and will become self re-fueling and self generating for hundreds of years, maybe thousands. Don’t forget you must pitch the old Black male vs. the young Black male, and the young Black male against the old Black male. You must use the dark skin slaves vs. the light skin slaves and the light skin slaves vs. the dark skin slaves. You must use the female vs. the male, and the male vs. the female. You must also have your white servants and overseers distrust all Blacks, but it is necessary that your slaves trust and depend on us. They must love, respect and trust only us.

  • naughtycorner

    As much as I think Nate Parker is scum Judd Apatow is a hypocrite he seems only to be concerned about sexual predators when they are black i.e Cosby and now Nate not a word about that pedo daughter marrying Woody Allen.
    Cosby doesnt get much sympathy from me either but his deeds were the biz worse kept secret but if you look at the timing he was the sacrificial lamb they gave up to take the heat off Woody Allen who came under great pressure from former allies in the media when his incest allegations resurfaced within days the story switched From Allen to Cosby
    Anyhoo Nate needs to stop talking like Now …turd

  • Metoo

    The man was acquitted. That’s a pertinent fact that should not be ignored. Why should he appologize for his innocence? If anything, he’s owed an apology for being falsely accused and his roommate’s conviction was overturned as well. You need to stop misleading your readers. He was not arrogant on the Steve Harvey show and expressed sorrow for what the woman endured. That took a lot considering what he endured. I saw the movie and encourage you’ll to support this film. Sandra you’ve become a crab.

    Roman Polanski, and Woody Allen continue to do well, what’s the difference with this black man? Oh he’s black! (Certainly do not condone, rape or arrogance from anyone), however the aforementioned has continued to succeed with horrifying accusations, and truths against them.

    You sound very ignorant Sandra.

    It’s probably safe to assume he’s more of an historian than you are Sandra. Let’s see you apologize for something you didn’t do. We know you aren’t into men but is it impossible for one to be falsely accused?

    Name one film that Woody Allen released after being accused of being a child molestor that was a box office success. You can’t…cause you just heard somebody else say that and you are running with it. I don’t know why people keep mentioning Woody Allen as if he has anything to do with the public’s reaction to what they are learning about Nate Parker today.

  • stav

    He’s a product of Hollywood, none of them apologizes, or tell the truth. You look at the color of one’s skin and obviously hold them to higher regard, Hollywood isn’t about the color (oh but it is in many regards ) the bottom line is debauchery, and anything that is against God’s righteousness , and that doesn’t have a color!

  • Scromes1212

    As if Hollywood as a whole isn’t fiction, based on whites rewriting history in their favor! You’re clueless, and in favor of all that doesn’t have your complexion. Pitiful!

  • stav

    And we constantly look at the blog of a self hating black chick! People in glass houses!

  • Scromes1212

    You say that while posting on her blog lol

  • Yada Yada and etc.

    But let’s stop acting as if being acquitted means being innocent…rape and especially acquaintance rape is nearly impossible to prove without hard evidence, and let’s stop trying to mislead into this belief that his co-defendents conviction was overturned because he was wrongly convicted, when the truth is he got lucky on appeal because the alleged victim would not testify. And let’s stop shaming black people for not supporting or believing Nate Parker just because he is black. Women especially are very sensitive to the issue of sexual crimes against other women. If there had been no alcohol, and no witness who testified that Nate invited others to come watch/join him have sex, we might be more inclined to believe that the girl was a willing participant. But that is simply not how the situation looks.

    I was with you all the way until you said you didn’t think he was evil. Unfortunately I think rapists are evil. And to call others into the room to rape her solidifies my thought. Outside of that, I agree with what you are saying.

  • Scromes1212

    I can respect that. I’m big on forgiveness and I speak at prisons and live in a rough area so I’ve seen truly evil human beings. If it is true then he committed a evil act but is not a evil person. In my humble opinion. But I respect your opinion.

  • Scromes1212

    Your right, I apologize you didn’t say that. I just don’t understand the hate for Sandra. She is a black women that came from nothing that created a successful blog. She speaks her mind and doesn’t hide behind some font or avi and isn’t scared which is more then I can say for most. Have to respect that. Everyone is entitled to there opinion.

Please don’t block me, as I have been loyal to you since I came across a website that was bashing you to the ground. That was, like, 4 years ago. Baby, please, stop. Stop with the hatred.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

  • SkepticalBaby

    Just wait for people (especially Parker himself) to blame the film’s poor box office on the media. Because apparently no Americans, black or otherwise, can make their own decisions about what movies they want to see. And obviously, any and all black people would want to spend $10 to see a brutal film about slavery instead of Godzilla or something.

    How dare people spend their time enjoying themselves at the movies! How dare they go to see an action film or a comedy when they could have their soul crushed by self-serious Oscar bait!

    Seriously, whatever the controversy, I think people are just sick of being preached at and not enjoying themselves. Maybe people like to go to the movies to be… entertained?

    I agree, plain & simple his stank attitude repels me and Gabrielle Union showed me that she is about a pay check at any cost. I remember years ago when she was trying to sue tabloids saying she did not know Dwayne Wade or was in a relationship w/him & yet she was with him on the low. I read about BOAN in school so I don’t care to see an over the top version at the movies.

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    He is failing at sensitivity. Sensitivity doesn’t equate guilt, if he would humble himself then he could win at the box office and during award season . I don’t know if he committed the rape but sure is showing anger, rage, and a need to be in control. Those are things rapist do…. I’m beginning to wonder about you Mr. Nate.

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    He shouldn’t apologize , however he is angry and insensensitive. I think he shouldn’t apologize but he should show humility and a gratefulness for those who put the money, time, and support in the film other than him This tarnishes the message when you see hecis ready to explode. I watched one of the interview and he was belgerant. I wanted this film to be a success. Just because it scores low in the movie theatre doesn’t mean it won’t win an award though.

  • leapyearpisces

    As, a date rape victim (roofied), after MUCH soul searching, I have decided I am going to see this movie because it’s,an uplifting story about US, that needs to be told I have decided for me and mine, it doest matter the messager, it’s the message I am interested. And for the record, Nate Parker is coming off as arrogant. THAT I can agree about .

    I think this movie will do just fine .. The sad thing if he was found not guilty why was the story even brought to light about him almost 10 years earlier ? Some hating folks out there and its sad they dont want him to succeed .. I hope this move breaks all kinds of records in sales and reviews just to show people you cant try to do dirt on people and get away with it ..

  • jussaying

    Anger and rage are valid responses to a rape charge that one is 1) falsely accused of, 2) acquitted of, and 3) then reminded of decades later. I’m not sure if he raped that chick or not. But let’s not act like white women (i think she was white) accusing black men wrongfully of rape – especially those individuals who are sport stars or on the verge of success – doesn’t happen. I’m sure if you were wrongfully accused of something and acquitted of it then forced to “admit” or talk about it and have it impact your current livelihood, you’d be quite angered and annoyed as well. Nate doesn’t want to cater to white audiences. He shouldn’t have to either, but that he does is the reality of being in the entertainment world.

  • the guest

    Please read the Nation’s article by an esteemed sister Doctorate and Historian who takes care to expose the FACT that The Birth of a Nation is not only historically inaccurate, the film misrepresents Nat Turner and enslaved black women.

    I am hopeful and have faith that a great Nat Turner movie will be made in the future.

    This election is a vice, a painful trap. Hilary hates other women she feels threatened by, she has spoken in vile ways about black men, she condescends black people, she holds immigrants and gays as favored minorities over black people, and she has always sheltered herself from the poor whom she disdains. Her husband’s prison industrial complex advocacy cut down a generation of black men who were dealing drugs literally to overcome racist economic marginalization.

    This election is voting on interests because neither candidate loves black people. I want a president that’s going to put seed money in the hands of black small businesses and agricultural seed money in the hands of black farmers. I’ve yet to hear this from any candidate.

    I saw the interview … I could understand him being upset. My issue is this; there are so many others BESIDES him that were involved in making the film both behind the sciences and in the film. His inability to control his temper, to show humility, and understanding is not unreasonable. In fact it a sign of growth , maturity, and security in knowing he was RIGHTFULLY aquitted. This would allow him to move past this while freeing him from his past. He isn’t free from this because if he was he wouldn’t still be angry which means he is in bondage and bitter. He is resentful even with all he has accomplished and he may not get another opportunity to work like this again . Hopefully the film was not done in vain.

    I assumed ppl were aware that Sandra is a Trump supporter and my comment was directed at her sheer ignorance and bias. Let me be clear – my comment is in regards to her support of the Orange Buffoon.

  • Metoo

    I saw the 60 Minutes interview and Steve Harvey and feel enough contrition was shown in both. If he truly feels falsely accused, it would be difficult not to harbor bitterness and resentment towards the accuser as it must have been difficult for a Black man to convince a jury of White women that his White accuser was being less than truthful. Nate Parker didn’t come from wealth so I find it unlikely that he would be acquitted if guilty. And to your point, my theater was virtually empty for the 7pm show opening night so it may very well bomb at the box office and still do well doing awards season.

    This election is some frightening isht. My fear is Hilary will get into the Oval Office and flip the script on black people and turn cold and blind eye. If she does that black people will have no recourse but to protest and that will be an excuse for arrests. If Hilary spirals blank people into poverty and cuts programs for her political interests and acceptance, there will be civil unrest. This election is a mess.

    I don’t support him but understand where the people that do support him are coming from. Malcolm X is my hero but my son studied the things he said before he left the nation and said to me ” Dad he was a rascist” I understand how he can come to that conclusion based off the things Malcom said back then. Even Malcom apologized for them.

  • Baron

    Hillary is not a saint. In fact, she has done things with which I disagree. However, Trump is not an option. Do you have a daughter, mother, sister, aunt? How would you feel if a “man” spoke so vulgarly about their most intimate parts? Would you accept his behavior from your child? I assume, not. So, why accept this behavior from a 70 year old? ?

  • Diva_woman

    Nate Parker was not falsely accused, that is simply a lie. There is a difference of opinion on consent but he did have sex with her, his friend did have sex with her next. The girl felt she was too drunk to do anything and a third man testified that he was invited by Nate to have sex with her next but he declined. The second guy to sleep with her was convicted, Nate wasn’t convicted bc they had a previous sexual encounter whereas she didn’t know Celestine. Nate and Celestine harassed the girl for years after and she ultimately committed suicide.

  • Metoo

    Just read the Nation’s article. The writer made valid points; however, it felt a bit nitpicking to me. Sure, one can say the film lacked detail (considering time restraints) but Nate Parker himself admitted the movie is “based on the life of Nat Turner.” He was right! So what, if he despicted the impetus of the rebellion as a brutal “gang rape” of his beloved wife. History has shown that many enslaved women were in fact sexually violated so is it really far fetched to imagine that his wife could have too fallen victim? And for the writer to say he portrayed Black men as heroes to passive Black women was also baffling. The scene with Gabrielle Union properly conveyed the defeated emotion of a powerless Black man who had no choice but to accept his wife being assaulted by the hands of a White man. Was he a hero to his wife in that moment? I think not. The film also brilliantly depicted the conflictions of some White slave owners as well and stopped short at portraying them as advocates or saviors. I thought the film was well done and left with an understanding that some storytelling (which fit well into the slavery narrative) took place.

We all know that there are people wrongly convincted even in today’s era of DNA evidence for crimes they may not have committed, but they don’t represent the 98% of the criminals who are locked up because they are in fact guilty.

    When she takes to insulting commenters and making personal slights against us, that’s not ok, especially when we have refrained from showing her disrespect. IDC what her complexion is, she is still my sister. I love her. I just wish she showed more love to herself and her people via her thoughts and words. That’s all.

  • Yada Yada and etc.

    It was a luck and the construct of reasonable doubt due to a lack of evidence. Since he and the victim had a sexual encounter the day before, and there was no physical evidence of rape, then there’s reasonable doubt that he had sex with her without her consent. And when’s there’s reasonable doubt, you have to acquit under the instruction of the law. But the friend didn’t get off so lucky…he was a stranger who the girl didn’t want to have sex with, and he took advantage of the situation.

    Anyway, people don’t care that Nate was acquitted, the legality of this case is not the issue. It’s his character that people aren’t comfortable with…he still like a slimeball for what he allowed to happen back then, and he looks like a slimeball for things that are coming out of his mouth about it today.

    I’ve said from the start the cinematography is genius. No matter what, the cinematographer deserves recognition.

    There are some facts he did not need to alter or embellish. Nat Turner’s character, depth, spirit, intellect, vision, bravery need no embellishment. There will be another film made I can feel it. His memory deserves it.

    I never planned to see the movie in the theater because I felt seeing a slave revolt movie in a closed quarter during these racially tenuous times was too much of a vulnerability and risk. I feel screenings are vulnerable to race attack in my personal opinion. I don’t trust these times we live in.

  • Yada Yada and etc.

    So, what is your point? That still doesn’t prove any racial conspiracy against Nate Parker when it’s the public who pay to go see the movies who garner the box office success for Woody Allen, and most of the revenue for his movies comes from outside the US anyway. Also, the Woody Allen scandal first started circulating nearly 30 years ago and has already exhausted its way thru the media over the decades…what we are learning about Nate Parker is new to the public and thanks to social media, news spreads more quickly. I still don’t understand why people insist on shouting Woody Allens name anytime we talk about Parker.

    There were many persons in history who embodied Nat Turner’s courage and conviction. Sojourner Truth and Harriet Tubman were his female counterparts. I personally didn’t feel unsafe seeing the movie but understand why some would. This film needs to be seen by the masses if for no other reason than it shows us rebelling against the brutal oppressor. It left me feeling proud of those who were hung because they, more than likely resisted injustice while putting their life and the lives of their family members on the line. Colin Kaepernick’s stance today is a less extreme version of this but unfortunately; the reality is, one act of resistance can yield awful consequences for others.

  • Metoo

    You speak like an attorney and one who has followed this case a lot more closely than I have. I have no bone in this fight but can say; of the two interviews I saw (60 Minutes & Steve Harvey) enough contrition was shown for me. Sometimes good people do bad things and this I know. Furthermore, enough of us have been falsely accused/convicted that I’ve chosen to give this brotha the benefit of doubt in trusting his acquittal was justifiable.

    Kiki, I have a lot biases. When it comes to segregation and MLK’s yearning to have civil rights. Booker T. Washington’s speech at the Atlanta Convention…I could go on, but I’d prefer to argue with my Afro-Studies professors at Howard. My biases are not yours and yours are not mine. My interpretation of history is not yours and yours is not mine. So………I can admit that I am bias, can you?

    She is no longer on this earth. As a victim of assault I hold no bitterness towards my attacker. It would hold me in bondage. I know people who still hate/resent the dead and buried just like Nate. In his case I would rejoice that I wasn’t convicted and in jail! He should find joy and use that to combat any resentment. My Goodness look at Nelson Mandela no resentment at all and yet he was in jail for years. Is how you choose to perceive and live your life. Maybe a an award or nomination will vindicate him if not hope he really can move forward.

  • chris

    Everyone has biases and an angle some are just better at disguising it.

  • KiKi

    First Howard, you do not appear to know the definition of the word “bias”: prejudice in favor of or against one thing, person, or group compared with another, usually in a way considered to be unfair. Your examples of your bias or not bias but what you think on an issue, your opinions. My point was that your painting historians as all having bias is absurd. Good historians, and they are legion, do not use bias as the basis for understanding history. That you need to make the messenger wrong because you do not like the message is something you should discuss with all your professors. And on the subject of King- don’t you think his comment on the content of character is germane here? Has not Parker shown us over and over again in interviews and posts on his Facebook who he is?

  • Allihave2say

    Ok I lub Sandie. I’m just checkin.

  • Metoo

    Okay, Kiki not sure exactly how to respond to your assumptions but to say; I’ve not had to face a jury in order to complain that it did not go my way. We all know the American Judicial System is imperfect so I hope you also complain when innocent persons are falsely accused/convicted and especially seek adequate compensation for those whom have served lengthy prison sentences which have been overturned by DNA.

  • abby500

    In the words of ME….bye Nate!

  • abby500

    Yep I’m waiting until NEVER to watch this movie. I’ll read up on Nat Turner.

  • abby500

    He could apologize for the situation and for what she went through. There is was a way of apologizing without saying he raped her. He needed me! I would have had his azz off the hook without looking like an insensitive axxhole

  • Metoo

    I appreciate your input on this subject as I have no first hand experience nor do I speak for Nate Parker. I’m simply saying he seemed remorseful during the two interviews I saw and I personally wasn’t offended by a man claiming his innocence and refusing to apologize for it. I interpreted him saying he felt it was morally wrong as relating to sex outside of marriage or sex without love or group sex but not necessarily non consensual sex. I also am a firm believer that you reap what you sow and no deed goes unpunished. So, hopefully he’s made peace with the situation for his own sake.

  • PrettyBrown28

    I’m neither immature nor ignorant. The fact that you choose to learn about Nat Turner through a movie, shows your immaturity and ignorance. We all know that Hollywood stories are chopped and screwed. So, my dear, you grow up and stop allowing movies to be your educator.

  • Metoo

    Nice try, however bad comparison. George Zimmerman had Florida Stand Your Ground Law on his side and though we have evidence that he was advised by law enforcement to fall back; he continued to pursue and kill Trayvon Martin. As for the plethora of police officers, we have video evidence in most cases showing a clear case of murder or at a minimal-unlawful use of force. Is there a video of Nate Parker rapping this woman? There must be since you’re so convinced. The man claims his innocence, a jury of White women found him innocent and I’m going to assume you were not present to stop the assault so I’m giving the brotha the benefit of doubt that his acquittal was in fact justifiable.

  • Metoo

    In my opinion, that’s exactly what he did in the 60 Minutes and Steve Harvey interviews. He expressed sorrow for what happened and in hindsight saw the error in his ways. I don’t know what more can be expected from a man who feels he was falsely accused.

  • Mrs Mary

    it was a great movie and i went to see it based on NAT TURNER’S STORY NOT NATE PARKERS!!!! the only thing i could say nate parker SHOULD have done was to teach young men to abstain from sex on campus and especially group sex, yes this was a teacheable moment for him to teach about sex on campus, however, the movie should be treated differentlyl.

  • chris

    You argue like an angry child hurling insults because I enjoyed a movie by a black man that you clearly want to burn at the stake. You want to get a point across to someone a bad place to start is with an insult, Any mature adult would know this.

    Please point out where I said I chose to learn anything from this movie?? I’ll wait.

  • Metoo

    Exactly!

  • PrettyBrown28

    That’s all you gathered from my response? Yeah, ok. This is a waste.

  • PrettyBrown28

  • PrettyBrown28

    It wasn’t Nat Turner’s story. But then again, only the people who didn’t read the story of Nat Turner take the hollywood version as gold.

  • KiKi

    What assumptions? You state that he was acquitted with the clear implication that that was that. Since you agree the system is flawed and miscarriages of justice do indeed happen what is your argument? By our current, more fulsome and evolved understanding of consent Parker would not have walked. And if you read the trial transcript it seems clear that the consensual sex his walking was based on would also by today’s standard not wash. I believe in reparations for those whose prison sentences have been over turned by DNA, prosecutorial malfeasance etc. and the following link is to the donations page of the Innocence Project. They do good and important work so don’t be stingy.

    Uhh, I was referring to your saying, “I bet you have complained plenty about juries etc when it didn’t suit you,” is that not in fact an assumption? You seem to be an attorney or some form of legal professional; I am not so surely you would find it beneath you to argue with a lay person such as myself. It is my prerogative to accept Nate Parker’s acquittal as just, just like it’s yours not to and your pulling out court transcripts and retrying this man publicly is akin to shall I say, double jeopardy. Now come back with your legalese that most of us here won’t understand but dare I forget to mention; I hope you support Nate Parker’s “The Birth Of A Nation,” it won’t disappoint. And thanks for the link. Let’s hope you practice what you preach.

    Our biases are typically what shape our opinion. What is she talking about? Historians good and bad are people first; therefore, some are more objective than others.

  • Howard Alum ?

    Oh Kiki, I truly do understand the definition of bias. I gave you examples of situations I am and still biased about. Did I explain to you why, no. So, I can see why you would think, I used this word in the wrong context. Me mentioning I would rather argue with my professors still stands. I would love to go into further details on a plethora of black people in the 19th and 20th century and why I’m biased about them. However, this is not the place to discuss them. Secondly, I hear what you’re saying, however, there are SOME biased historians. I know some professors who are and there in the HISTORY department. ? Now, if you want to continue trying to school me on a comment I made that was strictly my opinion, by all means feel free. Futhermore, this is my last time replying to you. Shoot me your email if you’d like to chat further. I’ll even recommend some books to you. Have a great night ?

  • Howard Alum ?

    Thank you, but I guess she/he didn’t get that out of my statement. But again, it’s all about interpretation…

  • Howard Alum ?

    Oh and I don’t condone rape, especially by a black man, considering our past in this country. However, I am not going to let a mistake that was made years ago, overshadow a movie about a man considered a hero in the antebellum south. More stories like this need to be told, bc the Hollywood narrative on what back people were subjected to for years is getting old. Peace ?

  • Howard Alum ?

    Right, if you see the books written for high school students, those books are full of biases. Oh and let’s not forget Texas completely trying to erase slavery from their history books. Those historians are totally bias…lol. I guess she just wanted to have an Internet argument…I’m not with it ?

  • lilli lilian

    I’m confused about the constant Woody Allen mentions too, because I’m guessing, and maybe I’m all the way off, but I’m guessing Nate Parker and Woody Allen have completely different generations of people checking for them. I highly doubt the majority age group of people not willing to support Nate Parker are the same people that were supporting Woody Allen, and I’m pretty doubtful that Woody Allen and Nate Parker share a good chunk of the same audience. If the people doing the most boycotting are majority millennials then is it not possible they didn’t have to boycott Woody because they never checked for him to begin with. I don’t get!

  • lilli lilian

    Why is the message of the film so important, I swear I don’t get why the message being presented through this film is “so important.” Are there not books and documentaries already available that deliver just as important of a message? What about the books and other sources of information Nate Parker used, it’s not like he was actually there with first-hand witness testimony so why does it have to be this film vs people just reading the same thing Parker read. Has PBS really not presented a bio story for Turner?

    I don’t think people should keep tossing out Woody Allen as an example without being able to truly state that the people who went to see his movies after the accusation actually were aware of the accusation, because quite frankly I had to go to Wikipedia to see what the problem was. Up until the great Nate Parker scandal of 2016 Woody Allen wasn’t someone I ever googled to learn about, so it’s possible many people were just going to see a movie that looked interesting and didn’t have a clue it was attached to someone they should not support, it happens. There’s a lot of people in the world walking around with their heads in the cloud (as my mother says) who just aren’t aware of all the wrong doings in the world. I don’t know what I was doing or where I was but I totally missed this Woody Allen story.

  • bitterhoney9

    First of all, the title to this article uses the word “smug” which is brings questions to intent and knowledge. Do you know Mr. Parker personally to make such a judgement of his character? I am not him, but in any case all advice which is given to anyone does not have to be taken. Now, what I am not hearing comments on is the fact that this is not Mr. Parker’s first film, so what is the true intent of bringing up rape allegations from his past at this point in his career? Think, but you don’t have to think to hard, “How dare he bring this up”. “Who is he to tell Our story from His perspective!”. I saw the film and am grateful to Mr. Parker for telling this story with the intensity which is needed to remind America how racism is still being played out! To this day, an unarmed Black man can be killed by the police and inspire controversy instead of condemnation and punishment!

  • whitty hutton

    ??? and folks like yall are the SOLE reason why I come here. I love seeing OUR stories being told on the big screen. I have so many faves – Glory, Amistad, 12 Years a Slave, etc. Hubby asked a coworker (a 50+ year old Black guy) was he going to see the movie and he responded that he’d NEVER heard of Nate Turner until this movie. For this reason alone, our stories need to be told.

    A lot of you are so self-absorbed that you don’t take into account that every Black person didn’t get the same education, have the same kind of upbringing, etc. and may not have the same level of knowledge about our history. Hell, prior to Glory, I had not a clue about the 54th infantry of Black soldiers who are CREDITED with turning the tide of the entire Civil War!! Nor did I know that a group of slaves took over their slaveship then fought for and won their rightful freedom in the all White U.S. Supreme Court.

    Neither of these stories were taught in my history classes during school so I am grateful that filmmakers are telling our history and piquing our collective interest to research and learn more about US in this country.

  • KiKi

    An attorney? Because I know the term “prosecutorial malfesance”? Yikes! And it is hardly double jeopardy for me to have read the trial transcript, Parker’s own posts and watched him in interviews and formed and stated an opinion. You are a bit thin-skinned and defensive methinks. And there is truly no point in any more of this. Worry about practicing what you preach and donate.

    Regarding Nate Parker’s past and the low viewer turn out for BIRTH OF A NATION is – THE MAJORITY OF BLACK WOMEN HAVE REFUSED TO SUPPORT HIM! BLACK WOMEN HAVE CHOSEN TO REJECT HIS CALL FOR BLACK SUPPORT. BLACK WOMEN ARE SICK TO THEIR STOMACHS OF “THE CULTURE OF RAPE” THE PERMEATES THE MINDSET OF BOTH BLACK AND WHITE MEN, PARTICULARLY JOCKS.
    BLACK WOMEN HOLD HIM RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SET OF CIRCUMSTANCES THAT LED TO HIS WHITE VICTIM ULTIMATELY COMMITTING SUICIDE. The majority of Black women view Parker as the typical self-loathing predatory black jock who rejects black women, and preys on white women; and who will ultimately marry white to use the white woman to produce children that will not look like him, his parents nor his siblings, in his desperate drive to commit genetic suicide.
    Parker knows it’s all over because, IF BLACK WOMEN DO NOT SUPPORT A BLACK ORIENTED PUBLIC PROJECT, IT IS DEAD IN THE WATER. Parker’s anger is really directed at black women; the very women he has always rejected.

    Nate’s ego has crushed his career in less then two months. This “man” objectified a woman and harassed her with his buddies until she dropped out of school. Now the chickens are coming home to roost and he can’t take the pressure. Oprah was right he should have put himself on Larry King or Charlie Rose. He had an opportunity to speak to young men about consent and No meaning No on college campuses instead he just ignored it and thought the work would speak for itself. He’s a monster and I threw out my “Beyond the Lights” DVD cause I cant even watch his silly ass.

  • Butter

    He was acquitted, Case close!! The accuser admitted she performed consensual oral sex on Parker. “I’m not proud of it,” she said in court, “but I saw it as being safer [than sex].”

    She was a trick!!
    From there, she alleged, “I just remember opening my eyes and seeing Nate having intercourse with me.”

    She also claimed she woke up to realize she was performing oral sex on someone and mentioned having sex with another person who was not Parker. “When it was somebody other than Nate, I said, ‘Where is Nate?’ ” she told the court.

    Parker said the coach also warned that “these things come up from time to time with girls who feel guilty … or may even find themselves pregnant with a multiracial child and rejected by their parents.” (The accuser is white and Parker is African-American.)

    Lies, Stevie Wonder can see she let them run a train on her and then played the victim, its not rape when you want it. Got real loaded up before.

    Ole white bish screaming RAPE after her sluty A$$ gave it up willingly.
    If he was guilty he would have Been convicted locked up
    He was not found guilty and I wonder why?! This was 17 years ago, the just trying to throw shade on the Movie ” Birth of a Nation”

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    SO just because he was acquitted he isn’t guilty? So George Zimmerman and the police that killed Eric Garner & Freddie Gray are innocent because a messed up judicial system said they were innocent too? Just as I said before if you read the court transcripts you can see that this woman was drunk out of her mind. There were three men in that room and one of them knowingly LEFT because he could see that she was drunk and didn’t want to take part in the train!!! Just because Nate slept with her first doesn’t mean she gave consent to get it on again with him and his friend. Our justice system cannot be trusted especially in school funded towns. Also, Nate went to Penn State one of the most funded private universities on the East Coast. This was at the height of the Paterno coaching seasons (before Sanduskygate broke lose). He was an All-pro wrestler one of the best on his team. Any public scandal would have dried up funding from Alumni. And on top of that Mr. Parker revealed his past willingly he is the one who opened his can of worms.

    You forgot the part about her being a White Slut Whore who wanted it !! They all got drunk together getting ready for the train!

  • Butter

    Those are my words! Sexual assault? So its clear you believe her, and I believe he didn’t RAPE her so whatever! I had the new first hand when it happened back in 19990 because My sister was a full time student there.. So beat it boo.. She was a known WHORE and SLUT who frequently hooked up with BLACK ATHLETES!! My sister knew all about her and followed the trial, her and the entire school knew the Girl was a LIAR! and she was sleeping around. So its hard to be believed when you already the biggest Slut on Campus and suddenly you aint with it?! That same year another Girl got raped on Campus and the guy actually did it and he was sent to Jail. The girl was lying there had been pictures and a tape of her going around school, showing just how innocent she is. Why cant she be lying? Why is her truth 100? and not his truth? Its like a known Hooker saying she got raped, Who cares?!

    The Birth of A Nation is a Great Film. I am spiritually better for having seen it. Nate acted his part brilliantly. I am aware that Nate was acquitted of rape many years ago. Those who dredge that up now are like vigilantes seeking to ostracize someone for charges he was found not guilty of. America is in denial on its history with slavery. The trashing of this great film serves this agenda of denial. Meanwhile Tyler Perry’s stereotypical fare is doing well.
