100 thoughts on “Lena Waithe: I Want To Humanize Black People Through My Art

  1. This movie is going to be nominated for an Oscar. Not because it's good, the Oscars haven't been about that for years. But because politics.

  2. If after 400 years of slavery. If after decades of prayers, marching, and creating almost every genre of American music.

    , If after ushering the age of civil rights while fighting in every war., And still not being seen as human.

    Then maybe Black people need to stop caring how White people see us.

    And Instead focus on empowering ourselves.

  3. Ya know they identify and view themselves primarily as black people but they feign disappointment whenever anybody else calls them black.

  4. Can we also stop trying to dehumanize black people like Michael Jackson who is no longer here to defend himself when someone makes false allegations against him and it gets treated as the gospel. At least people like Dave Chappelle didn’t join in on it and I commend him for that.

  5. Waithe is a Kenyan name meaning, "someone who belongs to their dad". i thought she was Kenyan. i a big Colbert fan, although half the world away

  6. People's opinion of me I don't care, my love for the Father is more important ,We can't Stop Racism its in you or not knowledge of worth I've got Bucket loads

  7. (Until the philosophy
    Which hold one race superior and another
    Inferior
    Is finally
    And permanently
    Discredited
    And abandoned
    Everywhere is war
    Me say war

    That until there no longer
    First class and second class citizens of any nation
    Until the color of a man's skin
    Is of no more significance than the color of his eyes
    Me say war

    That until the basic human rights
    Are equally guaranteed to all
    Without regard to race
    Dis a war

    That until that day
    The dream of lasting peace,
    World citizenship
    Rule of international morality
    Will remain in but a fleeting illusion to be pursued,
    But never attained
    Now everywhere is war
    War)

  8. how do people get away with this racist crap? I want to make art humanizing white people. Do you know how ridiculous that sounds? It sounds just as ridiculous as for black people.

  9. I thought the black community is already represented worldwide as the most popular culture? What more needs to be done? I think other minorities in the US are extremely underrepresented.

  10. An illegal u-turn should not be punishable by death. It's so funny how not wanting to be gunned down is super controversial.

    Hey, I'm trying to watch football over here/ support the troops/911/decry political correctness for some reason! Uhhh, so you're on board with black people living?

  11. Wow, just burn all of Spike Lee's and John Singleton's movies and Lena will have an original vision!
    (Sounds like a black version of Badlands)

  12. The most humanizing part was the two of them laughing together at the end, it transcended skin color and was just two brothers.

  13. That suit is well crafted. Amazingly well crafted. The level of difficulty to symmetrically match patterns vertically & horizontally is steep, but to also add diagonal precision is extremely high end. Absolutely beautiful. And you wear it so well!!!!

  14. Beautiful, Clever, Funny and Black. She got it all going on, baby 🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️💙

  15. Who is us? Because we all bleed red. Where in America are they still living in 60s- 70s? Where in America is ONE group only killed. I guess noone has been in a majorly ethnic region and be one of few whites.

  16. A fun drinking game called 'De Niro' is similar to this. Someone names a movie and the next person must come up with an actor from that movie, then the next person must come up with another movie that the actor is in and then the next person comes up another movie, then actor from that latest movie etc etc etc. You cant use an actor or movie more than once. If you suck at movie trivia you will be very drunk lol

  17. Racism is so subtle nowadays that you can't tell until you on the other side experiencing it first-hand. Thats why "race card" was invented. To make it mythical.

  18. As a black person, we need to learn how to stop killing each other, aiding the subversive elements in destroying our own communities, and maybe properly speak the most prevalent language of the country we've been in for 5 centuries before anyone is able to humanize us. 🤷🏿‍♂️ Not saying it's right. Just saying it's reality.

  19. It's stupid statements like this that makes me want to smack the foolishness out they mouth (black slang). I had the same opportunity, and I refused lower myself to that level. Queen and Slim sucks.

  20. I find it terribly sad that anyone would ever need to say or do that. It makes me really wonder how much I understand my own country and a certain pathetic group of people in it that would dehumanize ANYONE.

  21. WHY CAN'T A WHITE PERSON WRITE A MOVIE THAT DEALS WITH ISSUES THAT BLACK PEOPLE FACE? IT'S ART. STOP BEING RACIST. AMERICANS RUIN ALL ART WITH THEIR IMMATURE CULTURAL RULES.

  22. She really said some stupid shit in this clip. This notion that every time a black person comes in contact with the police that they are in mortal danger is such bullshit.

  23. HollyWeird doesn’t make movies to humanize black people. It hasn’t and it never will with the SS-Knights of the Black Sun/CIA covertly inside HollyWeird mass media movie studios covertly behind the scenes Lucifer-ritualizing movie production projects. They giveth a little sugar coating- the illusion of a revolutionary Huey P. Newton that killed racist Oakland Police Officer John Frey in self-defense to lure you in. I am certain that Officer John Frey was a vicious racist because his own white community outed him as a racist. Some in tears outed him. They told me, personally! Frey had an SS-German Luger to ceremonially (Aryan Cult Magic) stuff out Huey’s life, spirit, and soul. The luger disappeared from the crime scene and historical records, but its distinctive bullets and shells manufactured in Germany were recovered at and on the scene of the shooting. They trap the masses in theatres by false images, illusions, and deception, then, they marginalize and demonize black people. You cannot and will not humanize black people by Satanic Black Lesbians shrouding Queen and Slim as a modern-day Black Bonnie and Clyde. During the 1920s, Bonnie & Clyde out of Texas led a gang of white southern felonious criminals- absolutely savage diabolical robbers and mass murderers. They slew at least13 people, including nine police officers- not out of self-defense, but for- they got in the way of their absolutely evil and demonic criminal enterprise. DON’T GET IT TWISTED!

  24. Lesbian trying to dehumanise black people as if slavery hadn't done enough! This gay agenda for black people will never work.

  25. "…..I want to humanize black people so much that maybe they will stopp killing us ! " What a powerfull statment. White America – you should be ashamened of youselves that this statment even is nesacery.

  26. With the way she presents and the somewhat more beautifully executed than usual struggle-love narratives she perpetuates I am sure they will love her. Jannelle Monae on the other hand? They got her in back to back slave movies getting beat to death with closed fists. I knew she was screwed after that Ralph Lauren event.

  27. How very sad to think an entire class of people, you know, humans, have to be humanized in an effort to stop killing them. 😔

  28. This clip alone brought tears to my eyes. OMG, please USA, teach your police that black people are humans too and not 2.class people! They have the same rights like everybody in this world! Peace from Europe x
