Black Tea

So you may recall back in March (HERE) I reported about a new documentary in the works called Black Tea: The New Civil Right, or as I would like to call it, as I said back then (and still do), The Descendants of Stephen (for those of you who know Django).

I first heard about the doc when the filmmaker of the project, Kevin Dotson, appeared on MSNBC’s Hardball to talk about his film which deals with those lost and confused souls who are black members of the Tea Party Movement.

Now I admit that I am just teensy weensy biased about black people who are members of the movement and have nothing but contempt for them. Which is why really I admire Mr. Dotson, as well as his producer, Katy Jordan of Katy Jordan Media (HERE) who are much better people than I am, and who will be working as objective journalists in their approach to letting the audience decide for themselves.

However, the film, which is scheduled to be completed this fall, now currently has Kickstarter campaign going on to raise $50,000 by June 13th to help complete his film.

And it’s for sure to be a controversial film once it’s completed, which makes it even better.

To go to the Kickstarter page go HERE.

Below is the first trailer for the film:

    I bet during their Teabagger rallies the black folks are somewhat segregated from the crowd. SMDH.

    I am a bit curious to watch this doc? Somewhat. However, I am not sure that I am that interested in seeing it.

    My statement should have said "Am I a bit curious to watch this doc?"

    I wouldn't give him a dime. Sorry, but the subject matter is completely offensive and these people don't deserve our attention.

    Looks like it was made by a high school drop out. Sometimes there is just no there there, and this faux controversy is stirring a shit soup that does not exist. "But if you build it, they will come", must be the motto of the director of this wet firecracker. Only right wing racists and a few black Norman/a Desmonds' looking for their close-up would donate money to have this turd materialize.
