So, what would happen if, say, black people were in charge of our country back in the day and whites were an enslaved minority once upon a time?
Well, we’re about to find out or, rather, we’re about to see at least one person’s version (vision?) of what a reversal of our history would be like, but with an alleged 2020 twist.
Welcome to “Cracka,” a new series that puts blacks as owners of white slaves.
The upcoming series “Cracka” is likely to cause a storm of controversy for the premise: “What if the roles were reversed in slavery?”
The movie offers a present-day so-called white supremacist who is magically thrust back in time to an alternate past where Africans enslave whites and rule the land known as America. …
The movie is the brainchild of director Dale Resteghini, a white man born in Boston, Massachusetts that made his mark with rap videos. Resteghini worked with a colorful ensemble of artists including Pitbull, Akon, Lil Wayne, Ice Cube, Guns N Roses, Flo Rida, RZA, TYGA, Soulja Boy, Ty Dolla, Nicki Minaj, Diddy. Now, he is taking his talents in a new, controversial manner.
In the trailer of the movie, which is slated for a fall 2020 release, the protagonist – tatted with racist Nazi symbols – begins to harass an African American motorist. It is at that point that the violence starts. After the lead character rains down blows on the motorist, the pseudo-Nazi returns to his home. He then finds himself staring at the barrel of a shotgun and enslaved.
(Yes, dear reader, I know what you’re thinking. ‘What a racist term that is. What would happen if someone were to make a series debasing blacks and title it the N-word?’ Well, we both know that’s not going to happen so, might as well move on from it. Such a series would never even get into production.)
According to a synopsis of the series, “In a world where white privilege, systematic oppression, and minority protest in order to break the chains of bondage runs regular, white supremacist Michael Stone is doing everything he can to maintain his privilege by exercising every opportunity to ensure the America he knows and loves continues to remain pure and more importantly, remain white!”
Naturally, because there are so many ‘white supremacists’ around as it is. Not.
All Hip Hop notes that the series “relives all the horrors of slavery” including beatings, rape, and even name changes.
But, we’re told, the cast is not comprised of black people who are “perpetrating the same sick injustices as their counterparts.”
Of course not.
“Cracka doesn’t just tackle racism; it confronts it in a way you can’t possibly imagine. This unique series forces us – as a people, society, and overall a collective human unit – to look past color, look past our fears and pain, and see ourselves as people through the much-needed lens of love,” the synopsis continues.
Sure. Watch the trailer (below) and see if you believe that.
There is no official launch date yet, but it’s expected to be released in the fall right before the November election.
Here’s the trailer. You’ll especially like the part where they show a ‘Trump 2020’ bumper sticker on a vehicle.
