    Like as in a racial tension way.I watched Malcolm X lasts night he was a very poetic brother.The brother on here is an ignorant misguided heathen.Also Mississippi Burning was interesting too.

    The Lion King?If I'm not mistaken that was a African story they made a mockery of.It's because they think of us as animals.

    -The Godfather: it was violent yeah, but it was also about good and evil and family
    -Rebound: Didn't cry but when a raisin in the sun started playing I almost did
    -Roots: Good God, best series ever
    -Saving Private Ryan: Sad, I actually cared when the people died
    -Jurassic Park: I actually got into it. One of the few movies that I actually rooted for the people to live. When that T-Rex ate the Velociraptor I was cheering. That movie was awesome.
    -The Lion King: When Simba's father died *sniff*



    Shawshank didn't move me but was good. Tim Robbins and one of the most underratted actors ever (in my uninformed opinion) Lawerence Freeman wrecked in that movie. That was way better than the Green Mile which got so much award talk.

    Malcolm X didn't move me move me but it was ill. The way Denzel used to do that pose with the hand on the chin that Malcolm did was the ish.

    Are you familar with it? Are you familar with the African folklore? Have you ever read Anusi the Spider etc.?Don't question my knowledge I have read extensive literature I know damn well what it is about.Now go look up The Lion King. It should tell you the truth.The whole story was an African folklore story.

    no, it's not offically an adaptation of hamlet...but yes, i've heard that the stories are somewhat simliar....enough to say that it could have been inspired by that play. or at least that's what Disney is claiming................but i don't trust Disney.

    disney didn't even write the lion king...

    But the actual story is older than Hamlet...

    I thought you were talking to me with that one question my apologies but think about it how many other thing has whites took from us.Mosts of the ideas blacks don't get credited for was taken.Our women were raped.Have you ever read up on the actually BlackWallsteet?When the whites found out about it they burned it to the ground.Read up on things like this see even rap has culture in it.Look up the Harlem Diplomats.See how rich our culture is and you tell me why would that story "hamlet" not be constrived and stolen from our people.From my understanding the African folklore story Lion King is from was pasts on from many generations.
