Ben Affleck agreed to be on a show with Dr Henry Louis gates to trace
and it was discovered that Affleck’s family had Slaves
and it amazes me when folks act like they are shocked or surprise
or can’t imagine this happening
when it fact its very much a reality in america
especially in the south. i mean i always say get a clue
and how slavery impacted this country and understand
the realitys of it and what it means then
and now. however he wanted it to be erased
and act like it wasn’t a part of his being.
problem is when you deny the obvious and go and try to hide.
better to acknowledge and also discuss and air it out.
it would be something to make a documentary
and also to understand the realitys that still divide america
and how it benefited him down the line and make no mistake
its very real.
how embarassed are you that you found out or are you ashamed
at what the bigger picture here tries to ignore that aspect of this country
and tracing the past can lead to said revelations.
suddenly being an oscar winner, respected actor,writer,director
in hollywood can’t cover the reality
and fantasy ain’t as happening anymore. wake up call.
