'Birth of a Nation' Poster Features Nate Parker Hung By a Flag

The new poster for the upcoming movie The Birth of a Nation has been released and it features the film’s star Nate Parker with an American flag around his neck like a noose.

The 36-year-old actor not only stars in the critically acclaimed film – he also directed it, wrote it, and produced it. The movie is definitely going to be a big Oscars contender and Nate will be eligible for four awards!

Set against the antebellum South, The Birth of a Nation follows Nat Turner (Parker), a literate slave and preacher, whose financially strained owner, Samuel Turner (Armie Hammer), accepts an offer to use Nat’s preaching to subdue unruly slaves. As he witnesses countless atrocities – against himself and his fellow slaves – Nat orchestrates an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom.

Also starring in the movie are Gabrielle Union, Penelope Ann Miller, Jackie Earle Haley, Aja Naomi King, Colman Domingo, and more. The film is set to hit theaters on October 7.

    Another racist, hateful movie written, directed and produced by black. It’s going to be another huge portion of fuel for racial tension in the U.S..

    A little bit of history: «In Charleston, South Carolina about 42% of free blacks owned slaves in 1850, and about 64% of these slaveholders were women.»

    Historical factual movies are not to display racism but to educate…
    It is sad you feel so misguided by your snap shot of history! Yes, as with all oppressive goverment systems you will find anomalies-
    But, learn they are not the norm…
    Sorry your sooo miss informed & miserable…

    Another angry white person who prefers to see racism swept under the rug. Calling out racism isn’t racist just because it makes you uncomfortable.

  • John Dow

    Racism doesn’t make me uncomfortable. I don’t care about it. Racism exists only in eyes and minds of black racists. They are fueling racism by making hateful songs, movies, tv shows and stories with made up facts and lies. Black racists even have their own domestic terrorist group called Black Lives Matter. Activists of that group have killed 8 cops for the last few weeks. It’s the biggest number of cops killed by terrorists since 9/11. Blacks are the biggest racists in the U.S.

  • John Dow

    LOL. This is not «historical factual movie». This product loosely based on selected parts of the history.

    P.S. That was just a tiny bit of the real history. There are a lot more of bits like this one.

  • Gina

    YAWN. Goodbye troll.

  • Denia Davis M.Ed.

    Oh really
    Is this HISTory or what you want the public to believe-
    Your version-story…
    LOL 2 yourself & really get a laugh about your ignorance!!!

  • John Dow

    You are another loser. If somebody’s opinion doesn’t fit your agenda then his is a troll. You are so pathetic.

    No, you ignoramus. I’ve replied to one too many racist morons like yourself and the only thing I accomplished was the loss of brain cells. People like you are a lost cause. I’m beginning to think that at this point, our generation just has to wait for people like you to die out.

  • John Dow

    Don’t worry about me – i’ll spit on your grave :)

  • John Dow

    You are an idiot. This is not my history, this is the real history, this is what people all over the world (except usa) study in schools, universities etc. U.S. popular history of that era is mostly made up bullshit.

    Thanks god idiots like you are only 13% of the U.S. population and soon going to be wipe out.

  • Gina

    Ha! You wish! If you actually did your research, you’d know that white people are quickly becoming the minority in the US. Gird your loins, Satan!

  • Roscoe

    All of these evil people trying to get us to kill, hurt, and distrust each other need to die. Public hangings, ironically, are appropriate.

  • Bad Citizen

    Man, you’re trying to teach idiots. They can’t even to google some facts.

    Example:

    «William Ellison Jr, born April Ellison, (c. April 1790 – December 5, 1861) was a cotton gin maker and blacksmith in South Carolina, a free negro and former slave who achieved considerable success in business before the American Civil War. He eventually became a major planter and one of the medium property owners, and certainly the wealthiest “black” property owner, in the state. He held 40 slaves at his death and more than 1,000 acres (400 ha) of land. From 1830-1865 he and his sons were the only free blacks in Sumter County, South Carolina to own slaves. The county was largely devoted to cotton plantations and the majority population were slaves.»

    THIS!
    The use of blanket judgement form both sides are just increasing the divide.

    More about the nuances of controversial subjects are needed.

    Give people the benefit of the doubt. No matter which side of the argument they are on.

  • FerCat

    In a different time that image would not be considered inciteful. Unfortunate this is the now.

    Black people don’t want that kind of benefit (you see it in this comment section). A lot of them have been tought to hate white people.

    Some parts of american popular history were rewritten and edited to redefine the values and priorities that will be taught to the next generation and hide ugly facts about some people and actual events… But amercian people don’t really care about it, because they don’t care about the truth.

  • Dee

    i have seen this shit alot, the “black people have been taught to hate white people” thing. Where did you hear that? cause I really think white people may be taught to think that…

  • Dee

    guess it will fuel the hate, proof in your post….
