Roots was better. But really it seems to be a movie to make people feel sorry for blacks.
I feel sorry for them anyway as they are poor, not very bright and often violent towards each other. These issues are common whether they are in England, America, Africa or the W.Indies.

We don't want your pity you silly cow. Especially since some of us are greater achievers in spite of the obstacles that are placed before us than your sad and sorry arse whose only aspiration is to get shagged by a footballer.

And the Oscar goes to. Somali Stanky for not even acting but for being a Muslim.

The supporting actor prize went to Barkhad Abdi, who made an explosive screen debut as a Somali pirate in “Captain Phillips.”

The 28-year-old called his experience of going from obscurity in Minnesota to stardom — complete with an Oscar nomination —“surreal.”

Praising the other Somali actors who played his fellow pirates, he said:“We came from nothing and we got this.”

Says the same lunatic who supports child killer Assad. I don't think Assad like nighurs at all. Arabs hate nighurs more than Whites. I know many Arabs who prove my point.

The Muzlums acting in Captain Phillips was a joke. The movie was not worth the buck fifty I spent to rent it out.
