  1. No thanks, I’ll pass on all the coon’in from films and sportscasters and anyone else defending that fool on the Eagles.

  2. When I was a child growing up in the Midwest I used to hear stories about Black men who left the South and decided never to return. (Not even to visit family members.) This movie is not only about the son who participated in civil rights movement but it’s about the father making that choice to live life differently during those times. It seems somewhat obvious to me that both choices took courage and that each suffered great pain as a result of the choices they made. This is also a story about a mother and a wife caught in the middle but who ultimately supports her husband even to the point of slapping her disrespectful son whom she obviously adored. I saw my family in this story. My uncle made the same choice “The Butler” made at the age of 14 so I get it. My mom, aunts and older sisters are Oprah’s character in spades. (Right down to the red fingernails and lipstick.) While I’ve seem many, many films and read book after book on the South and the Civil rights movement, I’ve never seen my own story told in film, not this way. There were (and sometimes still are) two faces for most Black folks back then. One of the real us and the other used to survive some very challenging issues and times. I hope everyone goes to see this movie. I’ve seen it twice and there is a quiet dignity in it. Much like that of 2011′s “The Help”. Signed, The Proud Daughter of a Maid. (Who raised me to be so much more.)

  3. up to I looked at the draft which said $4225, I didnt believe …that…my brothers friend was like actually erning money part-time on-line.. there best friend has done this for under 22 months and resently cleard the depts on there house and got a great Citroën DS. go to,

    50 years MLK Day celebration: KKK Threat saddens my heart. They’re marching I’m still dealing with racism, unfair education system and violations of injustices. 50 years later, there is less of an” innocent until proven guilty system.” There is less interest in remedy injustices and equal rights. There is almost no interest in discovering the truth. People that can provide legal help, don’t have time unless you have the money. By the time a poor person can save the money, the statue time of limitations is up. This plan works out perfect for the persons and corporations in the wrong. However, it keeps the oppressed depressed for they have waited so long for nothing.
    Their justice fighting went from days to years without seeing JUSTICE come to light. The court will not hear the long kept evidence. So, while we cry for help, they flip the calendar of no justice.

  5. WHITE PEOPLE GOT THEIR WHITE HEROES, We got the BUTLER to be proud of. The “BUTLER” is a set-back-in-time in the plight of Black America.
