DARK GIRLS is a fascinating and controversial film that goes underneath the surface to explore the prejudices dark-skinned women face throughout the world. It explores the roots of classism, racism and the lack of self-esteem within a segment of cultures that span from America to the most remote corners of the globe. Women share their personal stories, touching on deeply ingrained beliefs and attitudes of society, while allowing generations to heal as they learn to love themselves for who they are.

I think this video comes out of NYC. It shows how the Chinese catch, kill, cut and cook
rats that look like chicken and serve it to unsuspecting black folks. It you can't find it on
the street search You Tube. Very interesting. Watch what you eat! -Xavier James

I had never seen a white woman with so much candor and audacity.
I recommend that you watch the experiment she did with adults. She shows, proves and
exposes whites to the same treatment they've been putting on black folks.
Watch white folks cry as she breaks them down with the truth. -Xavier James

Goodbye Uncle Tom was banned in America around 1971. It was mostly viewed in foreign markets outside the reach and shame of white Americans. There was a great fear that it could spark a revolution among African Americans. Goodbye Uncle Tom is a graphic, painful, horrible, true look at slavery in America; in all it's ugly detail. Alex Haley's ROOTS would be considered watered down when compared to the historical records regarding the treatment of slaves.
Two French directors used the diaries, captains logs, and memoirs of the actual slave masters, clergy, doctors, and slave ship captains to turn their words and feelings into a script. They then bring these inhuman slave masters back to life on screen. The result is a shocking denial of history white-
folks never wanted revealed. Because of the graphic nudity and gut-wrenching scenes, you may want to view it by yourself before recommending it to your family or friends.

"The most detailed documentary on the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Assassination I've ever seen. It includes revelations from people who knew the assassins and one black pastor who unknowingly admitted he helped set up his friend Martin. One of the biggest conspiracies in U.S. History was solved and white supremacists made sure nobody knew about it " -Xavier James
According to a Memphis jury’s verdict on December 8, 1999, in the wrongful death lawsuit of the King family versus Loyd Jowers “and other unknown co-conspirators,” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated by a conspiracy that included agencies of his own government. Almost 32 years after King’s murder at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis on April 4, 1968, a court extended the circle of responsibility for the assassination beyond the late scapegoat James Earl Ray to the United States government.

"Banished talks about a few injustices out of tens of thousands. It's about how whites killed and ran blacks out of town and stole their land. The question of how reparations should be given is asked but that question they say is unanswerable; why? Yet the Jews are constantly given reparations for Hitler's genocide. Who put a dollar amount on their suffering? To this day the whites in this documentary refuse to do the right thing." - Xavier James
Banished vividly recounts the forgotten history of racial cleansing in America when thousands of African Americas were driven from their homes and communities by violent racist mobs in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In fear for their lives, black people left these towns and never returned to reclaim their property. The film places these events in the context of present day race relations, by following three concrete cases of towns that remain all-white to this day (Forsyth County, Georgia; Pierce City, Missouri; Harrison, Arkansas).
Banished raises the larger questions -- will the United States ever make meaningful reparations for the human rights abuses suffered, then and now, against its African American citizens? Can reconciliation between the races be possible without them? Banished follows a twisting trail through yellowed newspaper archives registries of deeds, photos from treasured family albums and dimly recalled stories of elders who lived through those traumatic events.
The film features black families determined to go to any length to reconstruct their families past and gain some justice for their ancestors and themselves. It also interviews dedicated, local, newspaper reporters who braved community opposition to research the banishments in-depth and force their readers to confront their towns past and present.

"I came across this documentary about two weeks ago. It's the most detailed documentary on the Tasmanian genocide ever made." - Xavier James
The Tasmanians were a distinct people, isolated from Australia and the rest of the world for 12,000 years. In 1803, British colonization began and in 1876, Truganini died. She was the last full-blood and tribal Tasmanian Aboriginal. Within her one lifetime, a whole society and culture were removed from the face of the earth.

Henrietta Lacks (August 1, 1920 – October 4, 1951)
"I recently got a hold of a dvd on Henrietta Lacks. You can thank her for cloning research, Cancer research and stem cell research-medicines and vaccines. " -Xavier James
Henrietta Lacks (August 1, 1920 – October 4, 1951) (sometimes erroneously called Henrietta Lakes, Helen Lane or Helen Larson) was an African-American woman who was the unwitting source of cells (from her cancerous tumor) which were cultured by George Otto Gey to create the first known human immortal cell line for medical research. This is now known as the HeLa cell line.
