From the site:
"Runaway Slave is a new documentary that exposes the economic slavery of the Black community to the Progressive policies of the US government and how Black Conservatives lead the fight so all Americans can be “free at last.” C.L. Bryant is a Runaway Slave.
Former NAACP leader and self-professed “Democratic Radical,” C.L. escaped from the bondage of Progressivism and the shackles of entitlements to secure the blessings of liberty guaranteed by our founding document, the US Constitution.
Follow C.L. as he traces the footsteps of runaway slaves through the Underground Railroad. He travels into the heart of Black communities across the US from the slave ports of New Orleans to Chicago’s Cabrini Green to Martin Luther King’s birthplace, Atlanta, on to Jefferson’s Monticello; the film explores how 95% support of the Democratic Party has impacted the Black community.
Through interviews with politicians and everyday Americans and footage from national events, the film seeks to answer the question: Is the Black community 'free at last?'”
I read many of the comments after the videos on youtube.com and many are calling this film racist and that it is stirring up race issues. I think the only thing racist about it, is that it singles out black people as being affected by these policies, instead of saying that it is really all people that are affected. I think though, that he has had an awakening on the idea of freedom and really wants to share it. He likely feels that this kind of information is better coming from him, a black man, than from a white man, a white man would automatically get labelled as a racist for speaking about such things.
One of the questions the trailers asked was why are race issues still a problem in this country. The movie looks like it speaks very well to this. Hopefully I will get a chance to view it once it is completed.
Below are the trailers to the movie. It has not been completely edited and they are looking for money to finish up the project.
