Barack and Michelle Obama's first film offering under their lucrative Netflix deal has fans scratching their heads. The new film from the Obamas' Higher Ground Productions company is a documentary titled American Factory.

The film will be released in select theaters on Wednesday, August 21.

American Factory is about factory workers in a small Midwestern town who experience the joys of hope and change when a shuttered GM factory is reopened. But their joy turns to despair when their Chinese bosses impose strict demands on them.

This is "reverse globalization," say Oscar-nominated directors Steven Bognar and Julia Reichert, who filmed the GM plant's closure in 2008.

The Obamas acquired "American Factory" after viewing it at the Sundance Film Festival in January.

"Mrs Obama said it resonated with her because her father had done an intense, hardworking job for decades just to provide for his family, and she felt the Midwesterness of the film in what she saw on screen," Bognar told AFP.

"She felt her own family in the film, and I think the President felt there was a certain amount of policy issues and big broad globalization" themes in the documentary, added Reichert.

"You're getting a slice of what globalization really looks like on a human level," said Reichert, adding: "I think the film leaves you with a sense of unease."

Black Twitter users who adore the Obamas were baffled by the first offering from their production company. But others noted the factory is in Moraine, Ohio, where then-candidate Donald Trump promised jobs to laid-off blue collar workers.

Earlier this year, a GM factory in nearby Lordstown, Ohio became the latest to close its doors, sending even more laid-off workers to the unemployment lines.

  • ALLMINE?

    ?. Black folks will pretend to like it.

  • The Chosen 1.

    lmfao and you are right.

  • Phillybruh

    This is on the list to watch with the hubby this week.

  • Gloria

    ? the only thing I have positive to say is that I’m very surprised just by how much I’ve been enjoying MIchelle’s book “Becoming.” I will still side eye the Obamas but a good read is a good read ?????

  • Renee26

    Sounds boring... I won't be watching but congrats to the Obama's on their movie deal!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Some say the Obamas are out of touch with the Black experience.

  • Dre Clemons

    Yall would complain about the subject matter no matter what. Just say you dont care for the Obamas and cut the sh*t

  • ALLMINE?

    I'm out of touch too. ????

  • the guest

    Reverse globalization must be heeded and understood.

    Model minorities such as Asians will replace whites as industrial bosses. The Obamas' film is a wake up call and warning about what is ahead in America.

    Latins are dying to become a dominating model minority.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Do tell us what the black experience is, Auntie since you're from England.

  • The REAL Cheese eggs

    The "black experience" is not just one thing . Black people are diverse in their lives and experience.

  • Parent

    I will check it out.

    Michelle is a bad ass chick. Always looking her best.

  • Phillybruh

    Don't tell them nothing! Let them continue on.

  • Pamela

    ???

  • Bossy704

    There are jobs but the workers cannot stay sober or pass a urine test. Meth and opiates are bad in the Midwest. These guys are unemployable.

  • Vonn

    I can't wait to see this.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Its on the list to watch this week. I watch my shows on Saturdays. I want a movie about corporations like Sprint, Starbucks, etc using cheap prison labor and driving the private prison systems. Hell prisons are trading on Wall Street now but the corporations won't hire convicts when they're released. Yet use them for $0.07/hr while they're locked up. Put the shyt out there!!!

  • TV

    Spread this truth. They love to hate them.

  • wigmon68

    There aren't any blacks living in England?

  • Phillybruh

    The experience is not the same as the American blacks that I can tell you.

  • Miss Lady

    Alex, I will take Dre Clemons is Correct for $500.

  • TriniHarlem

    I'm not sure anyone with a functioning brain was scratching their heads. Description is clear as day as to what it's about. Anyway films like this is up my docu alley. I'm going to watch happy prison next. I'm intrigued by the obvious human aspect and what it does being imprisoned.

  • Reenaface

    This is right up my alley as I love documentaries like this. I think I saw a similar one on Hulu too. Black folks better wake up and recognize that we are moving towards a globalization society so all of our grievances, marches, protests, will no longer matter much. Look at how the Chinese people are buying up everything, they're in and out of Africa and the Caribbeans buying up land resources and etc... More attention needs to be shed on this situation. Netflix is killing it, I'm not even done watching half of the programs they came out with this summer, I'll to move some of them to my falltime watchlist.

  • LeeSeeCee

    So folks were expecting some Tyler Perry type offerings, huh? This is on my watch list for this weekend.

  • Pamela

    The fans left scratching their heads probably need to watch it at least five times to eventually get it. Js

  • Scromes1212

    You should read Baracks first two books

  • Phillybruh

    I can't wait until his new one comes out next year.

  • Scromes1212

    I'm not gonna lie his first two seemed very honest and I enjoyed them.

  • Phillybruh

    Same

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Hey that’s going on all across America folks being worked to damn death and mostly in the south on black men

  • iWasteTime

    The next one should be about Midwestern farmers with too many crops and no one to buy them ... oh wait

  • Nik

    Please share a couple of good docs you've seen. I need some new ones to watch.

  • Carrington

    "OG", huh? LMAO
    ... y'all, don't be fooled by these people. THESE are the people they were talking about when they said "... they infiltrated black websites and pretended to follow the "woke" movement in an effort to affect the black vote."
    THIS is who they were talking about. If y'all want to stay woke - keep BOTH eyes open. These people aren't looking out for your interest. They're pretending to be blacks and gays and women and, if you'll notice - they speak of NO ill with regard to racists and Trumps and the racists who've embraced him.
    STAYWOKE!

  • Mz_Opinionated

    I saw the previews...I don't know if this is quite my cup. If you all like it and let me know. I will tune in...but watching the preview. I wasn't necessarily intrigued.

  • ATL White Guy

    I read somewhere, I think the NYTimes, where the Chinese have came in and are providing satellite tv in a number of countries in Africa. They're using that to indoctrinate people into working with Chinese bosses on things.

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Damn...Life...its tough. Not easy at all.

  • ATL White Guy
  • Jesse

    I love the Obama's and I love documentaries, so i'm definitely going to check it out.

    Meanwhile, Sandra, your boy Trump is leading us right into a recession.

    Bush- Destroyed the economy
    Clinton- Fixed the economy
    George W- Destroyed the economy
    Obama- Fixed the economy
    Trump- Destroying the economy

    It's almost as if there's a pattern here. And that is Republicans are a detriment to the economy. Which also explains why the poorest states are Republican.

  • Jesse

    Exactly!! These trolls are obvious.

  • Li-Wright

    I would see it, although I've seen so many other movies like it. But I didn't know about the Chinese buying the GM factory; that would be a twist.

  • Li-Wright

    Nope, Trump is going to give every worker a tax cut (again), which will drive up the deficit. He will give the farmers grant money (again) which won't help them get their Chinese business back.

    The economy was on track until DJT start messing with it. He's frustrated that the GDP hasn't increased to 3%+. It's at about 1-2%. He's frustrated that salaries haven't increased. He's frustrated that Apple didn't bring those Chinese jobs back to the States.

    However, you'll know the tariffs are effecting Americans when the Dollar Store increases its prices.:)

  • Li-Wright

    The Obamas said they would do documentaries and docudramas.

  • Li-Wright

    Acc. to John Salley the Chinese are buying up African land....blame the African leaders.

    I don't doubt this at all because it's already starting.

  • Reenaface

    Thanks for the link.

  • Ryan

    "Black Twitter users who adore the Obamas were baffled by the first offering from their production company." Screenshots? Or are we just making junk up now? In that case, many are baffled about how a humpbacked fat orange toad married to a "former" eurotash hooker became the POTUS - no wait, that's actually true.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I added the link to the trailer. ?

  • Dreadboi

    So-called blacks will never get ahead if you continue to worship people like the obama's who are GLOBALIST themselves and could care less if you and yours have anything to survive..This is the change part of his hope and change solgan.Sell out every area of America to the highest bidder...

    These two frauds don't care about you the average black person,never struggled like you the average black,never had to worry about a thing in their lives like you the average black person,but because they black and first so called black president and first lady you pro-blacks think they gods when they could care less about you and your life..

  • Ryan

    Wait till the Affordable Health Care (aka Obamacare) is repealed - those same entitled lazy rednecks who love to talk mess about the Obama's are the first ones in line at the doctor's office. They'll see that "their" president doesn't give a damn about their broke azzes. If y'all think the opioid "crisis" is bad now....

  • Dreadboi

    Clinton didn't fix the economy during his tenure it was actually done by the Republicans who was in charge of congress..George W screw the joint up and Obama did nothing to improve it.he just stayed status quo..

  • Ryan

    Trolls jump up to get blocked - thanks for exposing yourself.

  • Phillybruh

    At this point everyone should be a globalist in some way shape or form. The world is evolving man, we need to get on board or get left behind. And think you should use yourself as an example when you say things like struggle and average.

  • Dreadboi

    Sounds almost similar to what's going on in "urban america" wouldn't you say??

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    You say "blacks" like you ride on horses with white sheets on your body and head during the weekend...

  • Jesse

    Your utter stupidity just put you on my block list. My goodness.

    Blocked.

  • Jesse

    Exactly!

  • Dreadboi

    Latins are the dominte minority class. The dems are showing you how much the so-called black americans are valued when they are fighting for ILLEGALS to have more rights and services then they are for those that was suppose to have build this "nation"

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I saw Happy Jail over the weekend and enjoyed it.

  • Nita Pie

    Thats cause black people dont understand nothing and only looking for ghetto sh*t. Maybe if my people listened and learned something we wouldn't be in some situations we ALL are in.

  • Phillybruh

    No, but I do give white people credit for getting in front of the mandatory sentencing for possession and because they saw what they did do the black and brown communities.

  • Nita Pie

    You need to check the history books lovebug.

  • Phillybruh

    They don't read. they just spew what they hear...lol

  • Nita Pie

    Are you illegal?

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    So you don’t think productivity in American have went up while wages have went down?

  • Nita Pie

    You was probably scratching your head cause its boring huh?

  • Jessy

    Who exactly is scratching their heads? I think, this is actually a very fitting, very American, first-offering from The First Family.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    True. A lot of our people need to broaden their minds a little bit. We spend so much time watching sports, reality TV, and TylerPerry -type foolishness, that we see stuff like this and we're "baffled". I can already tell this is going to be a great documentary. I hope the Obamas produce more like it.

  • Nita Pie

    I cant wait to watch

  • Eileen

    Thank you instead of following the latest black messiah we should be reading investigating and holding our "so-called" black leaders accountable!

  • Karen Brady

    Now I got Brand Nubian all up in my head :-)

  • Karen Brady

    They say a year from now we will be in recession. Again.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    If you're intrigued by this story...PBS' Frontline actually did a really good documentary called Left Behind America and they spent some time talking about this same factory, so it gives a little bit of a preview about what the Obama documentary goes into in more detail: https://www.pbs.org/video/left-behind-america-tkmile/

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. I hope they do more documentaries that cover things like healthcare , voter suppression, income inequality, and a bunch of other topics that the mainstream media doesn't spend enough time focusing on.

  • wigmon68

    And the experience for all blacks in America is the same?

  • Eileen

    FINALLY somebody sees through the sludge of the obamas all of that talk about income equality and they signed lucrative book deals movie deals lucrative speaking engagements and the multiple houses with security people who have loaded GUNS!!! but they leave us with poverty and confused crap that they want our children to swallow while their little darlings attend the ivy league schools protected and privileged!
    Now I am not one to critizise I believe in capitalism with federal guidelines policies blah blah blah to make sure the system works properly but the obamas spewed to us income equality and how the rich should feel guilty about their money and the first day out of office they signing all kinds of contracts and money making deals! well heres to you mr and mrs obama I had so much HOPE but you guys stink to the lowest degree you are hypocrites of the system you pilfered from for 8 long agonizing years

  • Yardgirl

    Right!! It's like the video of the female redneck talking about she don't want o "Obamacare, she only wants the Affordable Heath Care" I cackled at the absurdity of these racist Trump supporters. Truth be told he would not spit on them to out them being on fire. Dummies.

  • Jessy

    Agreed!

  • Yup, I said it

    Honey it is the pure truth! When I first graduated college all the jobs I worked were on straight bullshiat. One job had ppl clocking their bathroom breaks because they were limited to 15 minute collectively per day. The durn supervisors would walk in the bathroom and look at whose feet where in the stalls. This won't China this was in USA. They had grown women with children in college holding their pee because they had used up too much personal time. I said fugg this, fugg the kidney problems, and fugg this job. Aint no paycheck worth wearing a diaper just so you can pay your bills.

  • Eileen

    Thank You and when you bring in the immorality of it all yep thats obama mr. transforming our children into confusion with his anti christian and anti family agenda. If black folks dont pay attention we will be systematically disposed of! Hold your so called black leaders accountable from maxine waters to al sharpton they have all sold us down the river of racial redundancy with no plan for redemption and reperation checks dont count!

  • Eileen

    once again confuse the black folks...oops I meant the masses.

  • Dreadboi

    What channels are you watching CNN,MSNBC?? Thought obamacare was suppose to be all end all for healthcare?? Only voter suppression that is going on is those that only care to vote when there is someone that only looks like them(i.e. the first "black president). Only income inequality comes from those that care not to change their situation to get more income or better themselves to get better chances to get said income..Topics that the msm reports on everyday from the dozen of media talking heads on every channel..

  • Yup, I said it

    Amen!!!! While Black folks out here with car notes the size of a mortgage payment, white people are snapping up the land and the houses and making us rent from them. This is how feudailsm started

  • Dreadboi

    Born in america.. charleston s.c. to be exact..

  • Sushi

    I'm sorry, and I don't get deep into politics with people , but where have you been, hiding your head in the sand?...

  • Eileen

    The chinese are racist they aint going for his we shall overcome which is dying out with the useless black leaders who kept their riches within the black elite no sharing of the wealth by way of insuring education intact families etc. etc. everybody benefits from dumb black folk who dont read investigate or ask questions. Remember when ya mama would say boy/girl stop asking so many questions or hush yo mouth you talk too much. My daughter said mommy I was out having lunch and I notice that white people talk to their kids black parents talk to us to critisize, or reprimand but not to just have a normal conversation. I am not saying your child is your friend they are not! but white folks do have conversations with their children about their day or the museum they just visited. black folks have we overcome? the soles of my feet are tired and chinese dont care nothing about MLK. yall better ask questions get married and dont have babies without marriage or we shall continue treading the same old path of we shall overcome!

  • 1KimJones

    You are 100% correct. Did nothing for the black community at all! Yet many do "worship" them. He did come right out and say, " I am not Black America's President". He would never sat that about the other groups of people he helped Then, proceeded to pass laws to benefit many other groups. Great deception with smoke and mirrors. All it took was a little "swag", melanin, charming personality and nice smile, and that's it. Most didn't pay attention to anything he actually did and Did Not do! I don't care who doesn't like this comment. The truth is the truth. Oh well.

  • Eileen

    uh they are marrying african women. Africhi babies

  • Eileen

    Are the chinese the new colonists?
    Hold your african leaders accountable!

  • Sushi

    Agreed only if the Black people you are referring to was educated like our white counter parts, there is and always have been a separation. You might say it is self inflicted, but I'll say it is programing , and other social economics at work...

  • Eileen

    Holla for real so where the hell were our black elected officials congress, legislative and senators at? Obama was a senator!

  • 1KimJones

    Yes! Most don't want to do the independent research to find out the truth! The repeat programmed rhetoric to support their perceived agenda.

  • Dreadboi

    Clinton was to busy dropping bombs in tbe middle east anr signing laws that crushed the so-called black community which leads to him having to do a deal with the gop which lead to balanced budgets and in the 90's and a surplus in the gov which we haven't since he left office..

  • Sushi

    None of them "President Elect" do anything for "The People ". There only focus is big businesses, and the Elite agenda....

  • Eileen

    They can become the model minority because they have a strong infrastructure of family (marriage, mom dad the kids) They are traditional and not accepting of their sons switching and sashaying when their daughters are pregnant they marry and are enveloped into a stable extended family that is what black folks used to be like before we went rogue and became staunch democrats with programs thrown at us left and right! You cant have a model community without a plan that you follow to completion.
    The dems are tired of black folks china dispises black folk unless you entertaining them yall betta get woke!
    Pull up ya pants stop tatting yo skin STOP making babies all over the place and get yoself married!

  • Sushi

    I'm see how you did that there, love the shade (truth)....

  • Dreadboi

    So crack,weed and the likes didn't and haven't until present time affected the black community as opiods/scripts and such affecting the "white" communities??
    It's a wonder why blacks were late to do what whites did when it comes to sentencing and such especially when there were blacks in congress and so-called black activist around..

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I'm convinced that "Dreadboi" is a white man.

    Just saying.

  • Dreadboi

    No i say so-called blacks dear because black is not a race its a color..My skin tone is the same as yours dear.. Not every has to view the world as you probably do through..I bet on horses on the weekend not ride them..

  • Ryan

    On my playlist today lol!

  • Yup, I said it

    Those dummies are so tired of Trunp probably want to re-elect Obama for a 3rd term. At least they had farms and customers. Now they are losing family farms and only the corporate farmers are getting the Trumps farmers welfare. WOMP, WOMP ?

  • Pamela

    Maybe his wife Jenny is the one that made the masks (Django Unchained)????

  • Dreadboi

    Globalism leads to socialism and I will not be a part of that game.. By all means get on the globalism boat but I would rather not regardless if the world is evolving because nothing good could come from having only one central gov.all you got to do is look at the problems and what has happen in the E.U.

  • Pamela

    Done blocked this idiot ages ago. Not worth the aggravation .

  • Miss Lady

    May I ask who you worked for...that chit is craycray.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    So atleast we know you watch Married to Medicine clips since you like recycling used lines from Sunday... If you are then you strike me as the Uncle Rukkus self- hating african american I hear about all the time...I've read your comments before and the way you say "blacks" is with disdain...Your cadence is off so I dont believe you are african american at all... But carry on troling "Dear"...I only block on MWF so your spared on this end til tomorrow...

  • Dreadboi

    Thought you already blocked me though??

  • Elevated Soul

    Shoutout to my Black people who refuse to let these two niggahs indoctrinate you with globalism. Clown azzzzzzz Obama did enough damage to an already brainwashed people.

  • Nita Pie

    True but we can educate ourselves

  • Calikush

    ??Not interested......I’m tired of the Obama’s so I won’t be watching. Disclaimer: Don’t like my comment? Keep scrollin’ ??

  • speakinmymind

    Education is FREE in this country. Just because it isn't 'taught' in schools, ALL information is available to those who seek it. All phones have access to the www

  • Phillybruh

    I've often noticed that most educated blacks don't watch this stuff, its usually the ones your describing who eat this stuff up, problem is they have no idea how to get out of the circumstances they have created for themselves.

  • fawkery

    So basically this sounds like anti-Chinese propaganda. I'm sure the Chinese implement rough working conditions but I have little empathy given the barbaric nature of this country and its treatment of the labor force. Maybe empathy isn't the best word....more so giving this documentary and politics the sideeye.

  • Phillybruh

    Your already a part of it, this country has always practiced some form of socialism.

  • Yup, I said it

    I can't say the name but it was a large health insurance company. They are #1 or #2 insurance in the country. I thought they were reputable too. I was so disappointed at the ghetto ness of it all.

  • Phillybruh

    Never said that, but the English black and the American blacks experience surely aren't.

  • fawkery

    Always thought that, literally all facts and it keeps us dependent on the system that is more times than not rigged. Politicians are selected and that's why it is almost unheard of to see a democrat elected for 12 years, or 4 terms, in a row....

  • ATL White Guy

    From what I heard, working at a Amazon fulfillment center is just like this.

  • Phillybruh

    All those things exist in Chinese house holds. They are just good at the memory game and putting forth what they want you to see.

  • Coffee1st

    Totally believe you. That micromanagament crosses that thin line into a Dictatorship like environment. I, too, worked for a well known health insurance company from home. These cretans bullied via emails... it was insane. More money than i ever made and walked clean away like I'd won a lucrative scratch off.

  • Yup, I said it

    Chinese still practice slavery and human servitude. Some of those factories have people locked in and they be jumping out the window to commit suicide. Thats the only way they will ever be free. Naw we don't want to get to that point.

  • fawkery

    I believe it....I saw a meme that describes the corporate environment in America. Your salary is the company's subscription of your talent. And the response "I never gave them a discount promo code." SMH

  • Dreadboi

    Lol ahh another plantation slave..Don't watch ratchetness so I have no clue as to what you talking aboutbut continue ahead if that's how you spend your sundays..

    Didn't realize you could tell my cadence by typing when you never heard me speak a word.I do love the Boondocks by the way but far from Uncle Rukkus..

    Not disdain but saddness that all I see is victimhood from people who's history is more then slavery but those same people would rather stay in slavery(mentally) then to be like those in their history and im not talking about the white mans history you are taught once a month a year for 28/29 days..
    Feel free to block me but Ill still be here speaking when I feel the need..

  • Yup, I said it

    My experience was in 2007 Its definitely getting worse. In 1998 I was a cashier in high school at Winn Dixie and they treated me like damn Queen compared to how these jobs treat us now. We are moving in reverse.

  • fawkery

    I get that but what immediately came to mind was the 13th amendment and the prison industrial complex. Some innocent people get caught up in it and prisoners work for pennies on the dollar. Free labor - it happens here in this country too. All in all, everyone gets the side eye. But I agree, we don't want it to go there either!

  • Bushbabe

    Present!!

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Whoa ? It's not funny though. That sucks! Some places behave like that if it's a call center. I've had that happen for call centers. Not for normal 9-5 places of employment.

  • Coffee1st

    I hate the term black but i use it to get my point across.

  • Dreadboi

    No don't spend time commenting on every post put up here due to me working doing what I need to make this money so I don't have to sit around complaining about someone else getting paid and im not..
    Time is money in my industry and it's too much money to be made to sit around and complain..
    These talking heads on t.v. channels are actors and get their scripts from narrative pushers and I don't have time for it and when you understand that you too will care less and less about the agendas they pushing..

  • Yup, I said it

    Its funny when I look back on it. You go into the bathroom and everybody urine was smelling right strong and looked like ginger ale because it was heavily concentrated and ppl were dehydrated because we drank less.

  • Bree

    This is why I wasn't jumping for joy during Obama's presidency. The Obamas are more like celebrities instead of well respected people, which they are in our community. I hope they don't become like the Kardashians.

  • Coffee1st

    (snickers)...

  • Coffee1st

    Better, worse or just different?

  • Yup, I said it

    The IT field can operate like that. They can trace all movements on your screen and if there is no action or movement for a while they start pinging you.

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Good Grief! That's like a damn sweat shop! I don't think I could have lasted there. People make it a days work drinking coffee and going to the bathroom!

  • T865!

    Says a trumpet supporter ?

  • Rayne

    Bcbs?

  • Phillybruh

    Just Different.

  • Madashelle

    And them dummies, yup, I called the leaders of Kenya and other countries in Africa dummies because they allowed this shit to take place. And them chinks are calling them all kinds of niggurs, right in their face!

    Sorry, but not sorry. When the Africans sold their people to the Whites and Arabs and others, they eren't intending on slavery becoming a generational thing. When it did, the kings and other leaders in all of the countries in Africa should have got together to wage some type of war against the slavers to get their people back. But they didn't. So my sympathy is only for ADOS at this point.

  • Carrington

    I think ANYTHING you say is designed to push an agenda of agnosticism within the black community. That's why you're very careful to never push the conservative agenda, but PURPOSELY try to make "subtle" suggestions AGAINST a liberal one.
    I see you, even if other people don't.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Yes I can tell...from the comments you have written on your public page I see that your disdain for African Americans runs long and deep... Me being a free thinking "black" it makes me sick to know that some of you exist...for you to be so hateful towards a race when you are a part of it shows how stupid or delusional you are...If you are AA and if you walked up to shake Trump's hand he would still sick security on your dumb ass and put a knee in your back..Your so Anti-Obama but this man is no longer in the white house!! It like your obsessed with him and his family which to me is a form of deflection... mixed with a hint of admiration... or maybe even some attraction??? (sorry my educational pedigree is showing let me bring it back)... I'll bet money your just some lonely yt man with a receding hairline and a micro penis...you probably get no respect in real life so you make a persona online bashing "US" because no one takes you seriously...a sheepish sad person who needs to be a big person on line because no one talks to you or even notices you...I wouldn't be surprised if you were an Incel...You dont want this Black Girl Magic over here so keep it moving patty mayonnaise w/ ambrosia salad....

    I'm not sure if you caught that I am aware, but trust me I am, that is why I don't support any party. I make a very good living doing what I enjoy doing, working from home, when I want to, as long as my deliverables are not only in on time but surpass my counter parts, black/white, men and women. However I am sure that you understand that the playing field is not even. Not only am I the only black female in the board room at the round table meetings But I am the only Black Transsexual Female making moves in a fortune 500 company. You are correct a lot of our people have been brained washed, but as a Free thinking man it is your and my responsibility to break the cycle, am I saying to be captain save a Ho (intended spelling) no, but it starts with education not belittling......

  • the guest

    God no. I hope not.

  • the guest

    Exactly.

    The Obamas are giving a warning and heads up.

  • the guest

    They are a majority populous minority NOT a model minority and certainly not a dominating model minority.

  • the guest

    The port and hub of slavery.

  • Sushi

    True, but if you only feed a baby junk food that is all they will eat, and teach their own.... You are speaking of someone that is woke, making an assumption that everyone should know what you know, that's like saying a baby should know how to speak, clean themselves, walk, and talk.

  • Being bad is way more fun

    You know this is a pro GOP site so anything about President Obama or the DEMS will be negative ;-[

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Right. Because there are no Black people in England. ?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    LOL.
    No, you tell us how black Americans don't believe the Obamas had a black experience while they were growing up.

  • Elevated Soul

    Exactly....

    When Obama bytch azzz was residing @ 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue,the only time he paid Blacks any attention was when he was either berating Blacks or pushing the homosexual agenda.

    Obozo doesn't care about the nuclear family and neither does his bug eyed wife.They're two failed lawyers caught up in demonic Hollywood and they think they're owed something, which is why they are getting paid for doing something they aren't qualified to do.These propaganda pieces will promote globalist & Democrat agendas.It'll be nothing but one long lying commercial that ignorant Black democrats will fall for.

    Democratic Politicians from Elijah Cummings to Bernie Sanders, have shown ignorant Black Democrats that they've been replaced and these niggahs just refuse to believe it. I wonder what these dumb niggahs will do when they finally wake up to what's really happening.

  • JENNYJONES1

    And lying, clown ass Trump is doing an ass whipping for all the fools that complained about Obama......... Jenny Jones!

  • JENNYJONES1

    Hey every production company starts somewhere. It seems to be a film they believe in and that fits today’s economic climate. Good for them. Unlike some other past presidents & 1st ladies they are still trying to live their dreams and not just living off of memoir book deals and speaking engagements while trying to make a positive change and bring awareness to real issues........ Jenny Jones!

  • Lajuanalwayskeepitonehunnit Jo

    OBAMA BEST PRESIDENT IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!! TRUMP WORST PRESIDENT THUS FAR!!!!!!!!

  • Lajuanalwayskeepitonehunnit Jo

    sound more like you are the one brainwashed! U are just jealous of the Obamas! That's all!

  • Sushi

    Damn you said that...

  • Renee26

    Nah I just don't watch movies like that. I can watch a history documentary and be fully engaged if it's a topic that's interesting to me. Watching a movie about factory work and all isn't my cup of tea.

    They won’t become the trash your referring to. They actually have talent and education and didn’t have to lay on their backs and create fake story lines for relevancy

    Good the Chinese are ruthless and should be exposed. They have so many African countries in debt because of their promises yet their sucking them of their resources and land

  • Harley

    Yep

    No one but racists and ignorant people

    Making it up for click and bait as always

  • Elevated Soul

    Sounds to me that you are projecting the fact that "you are projecting your jealous heart onto me". I say this because I never accuse people whom I don't know, of being"jealous" ....The problem niggahs like you have is that you "worship" those two birds and you think all Blacks must do the same and if we don't,you go back to basics by accusing people of being jealous and to that I say a resounding Byyyyyyyyyyyyytch Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze!

    Bottom line is that: You dumb niggahs who live to FOLLOW are setting back the Black race but you are too stupid to see it.

  • Elevated Soul

    If you want to believe that Obozo was a good President,by all means do so...In my view President Trump has been the best of my lifetime and there is nothing you can say,to change my view.

    Nuff said!

  • Harley

    Every black person i. The world has a different experience and they are in touch with “their” experience as people of color. Anyone who feels they can determine another persons experience in this world is delusional

  • dontgetblocked

    Amazon has a lot of factories in small town Ohio, not to mention prisons. There are lots of blue collar jobs.

  • dontgetblocked

    They already are.

  • wigmon68

    If many just in this country are different, then why would one even need to say that the experiences in different countries is different?

  • Bree

    I don't believe they will either. I referenced the Kardashians because they are splattered everywhere. I hate that Obama is more of a celebrity than a well respected man. People only vouch for him because he is black.

  • Bree

    It's unfortunate. When Obama became president, it seemed he was more of a celebrity to me. But to each their own

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The Obamas are as out of touch with the Black community as Jay-Z and Beyonce are.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    If they had a Black experience growing up it ain't obvious today.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Michelle and Barry learned to follow jay n beys moves of playing to poor fans who will believe you give a phuck even when the facts show you don't &can barely keep your lies and cover stories straight

    Just like when he was in office, he still misses the mark?????. Really Obama, there was nothing else you could've shed some light on with your multi million dollar netflix deal smdh y'all go head and finish.

    .There is a lot of truth to this aspect of "reverse globalization".
    I work for a major corporation. The technology arm is now majority
    "Indian" from engineers thru GVP.

    They support each other no matter what... they do NOT share with other ethnic groups. They change the language or go to a break room and talk over coffee/tea.

    Crazy changes... but exceptions are typically made for "the majority group".

    I am going to watch this film.

  • Ryan

    READ? LOL a lot of these MFers can't read above a third grade level - that's why they just repeat what they hear on Fox news. https://media3.giphy.com/media/xUA7aM09ByyR1w5YWc/giphy.gif

  • Ryan

    TBH I'd be surprised if it didn't happen sooner.

  • Ryan

    Plenty of first gen Africans and they resent the hell out of African Americans in my experience, have been to London and surrounding areas and stayed for several weeks at a time and as soon as they see me or I open my mouth - bitter AF. I remember one time walking down the street laughing and talking with a coworker and a couple of them looked like they wanted to cut me for existing!! One of those fools made a sudden move to his pocket and I stopped and glared at him (thank God I'm tall) Yeah I know about the knifing crimes over there.

  • Ryan

    Jokes aside, who do you consider to be in touch with the black community? Asking with respect.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Nice dodge and moving of the goalposts, Auntie.

    Have a good evening.

  • Ryan

    The writing was always on the wall. trump never did anything for po' whites before and they fell for the okey dokey during his campaign.

  • Ryan

    I think this fool is born and raised in the U.S., too dumb to be foreign. This is some homegrown ignorance right here.

    I hate how they always want to play it safe. Disappointing & discouraging.

    Maybe this will help the afflicted understand:

    The Obamas’ First Big Anti-Trump Statement of 2020

    The former first couple’s Netflix documentary offers a quiet response to Trump’s promises to reinvigorate the industrial heartland.

  • Reenaface

    I read a statement on Instagram that rings so true for black people. It said, "Can black folks stop passing down religion like it's generational wealth". While they have us focused on white Jesus, these other races are making money moves. I read an article that the median income for the black community in my home state is $8, compared to $20 for the white community. In another article I read by year 2053 the median income household for black people will be $0. In another article there was a comparison about how long it took a $1 to circulate around different communities before leaving it, Whites, Asians, and Hispanics, it took an hour for $1, for the black community it took 30 mins. The black community is so behind the curve that we can't compete globally with the other races. They can come into our communities and build homes, apartments, open up nail shops and gas stations and we don't have no say in it. Look how those Asians were beating up black people in their salons, yes some of them were stealing but they set up shop in our neighborhoods and will treat us like shit but will turn around and take our money and black people still haven't learned a damn thing.

    And sadly it's too late for black folks so they should save their efforts because I hate to say it but a mass traumatic event would have to happen to shake blacks folks out of their slumber. The community would need to be purged of all the gang bangers, drug dealers, pedophiles etc... Those are the 2/3 of people who continue to make it hard for the black community because they don't give a shit. The pookie's and Ray Rays out here shooting innocent babies have got to be purged.

    Your daughter is very intuitive at a young age. I have noticed the differences in how we raise our children vs white people. We treat our children like chattel, we don't talk to them or put effort into preparing them for the future, we just let the tv, radio, and internet raise them. But white people will take their children to the museums, they'll take them on hiking trips and talk to them about nature I've witnessed it many times before. Black parents have that "Do what I say, not as I do" attitude when it comes to raising kids which does a great disservice to them. They act like corporal punishment is the only way to raise children. I was one of those curious children, I was always asking questions because I lived in a big world and wanted to know more about it. Thank God for being exposed to books at such a young age, encyclopedias and dictionary's.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    You do the same, Rod.

  • Reenaface

    I know, but sometimes the elites have to reveal a slither of the truth, that's why my curious self will still be watching this documentary.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Anyone who shares the Black experience, lives in the Black community and gives back to the culture. Good example is Atlanta Mayor Keisha who lives in a Black community when she could easily move to the northern suburbs of Atlanta.

  • Reenaface

    I did wonder what happened to his I am my brother's keeper initiative that he started for black men.

  • Ryan

    Very thoughtful answer, thanks. And yes that would be ideal, to have people speak about the community who actually LIVE in the environment.

    The majority of their administration left Washington and got on the boards of Entertainment industry. Thats one of the reasons the Media is so one sided. Media is like the DNC... Reincarnated.
    George Bushs Administration was on the board of the oil companies...

    I watched it..open your minds...it's about a factory being reopened and revitalized but it wan't TRUMP who revitalized the indusrty like he promised to AMERICANS..ASIAN folk swooped in and purchased the property like they're doing in Africa... and now Americans are working for them..the company is open 24 hrs a day and it's basically following the Asian owners try to adjust to the "AMERICAN" WAY OF LIVING..all of the rules and regulations we have and trying to form a union.

    Gotcha Sandy!!

  • TheOwley

    Over the last 20 years, manufacturing moved out of the US to China and India and that left people here without jobs. Now we have become a nation of consumers, not producers.

    Trump wants to bring back manufacturing to the US. That is not a secret. This is why China is so angry with him. That laptop from which you write was made in China, not Virginia.

    This film is about the Asian wealthy opening a manufacturing plant here. This is neither anti or pro anything (but I would have to watch to say so with more certainty). It sound like it's about rich Asians bringing jobs here. They could have easily done this in China and pay people $1.00 an hour.
