By JOHN LAYTONA, Associated Press *By JOHN LENDINGER, Associated Post •A movie featuring a white woman’s attempt to seduce a black man is getting a mixed reaction from people who saw it as a racially insensitive film and a white man’s attempt at controlling his behavior.
The documentary, “Rage,” about a white female struggling with rage over her husband’s killing of his wife, “comes off as a kind of rage management film,” said John Lewis, the president of the National Association of Black Journalists, who has spoken out against racism.
The film has been screened at several films festivals, but it has yet to be a hit in the black community, he said.
The film centers on the Black woman, “Sassy,” who is living in Los Angeles, trying to keep her husband, a Black man, out of prison.
When a black friend of the wife of the man she is trying to sedate, “Brick,” who she believes is a Black police officer, comes to visit the wife, she takes him home, but he is a violent criminal who is on parole.
She also has an older brother, who is her boyfriend.
In one scene, she tries to seduces the brother and her mother, who also works at a local gas station.
The brothers confront her and her boyfriend, but she is able to run away and flee with him.
Sassy tries to get Brick to return to prison.
She is caught trying to get him to stay in jail.
She confronts him about the threats she is making and he is threatening to shoot her.
He refuses and threatens to shoot Sassy.
The brothers are about to take Brick out of the house, but Sassy is able in the middle of the night to break out the garage door and enter Brick’s apartment.
She attempts to break in by breaking into his bedroom, but her plan backfires when she gets the locks on his bedroom door knocked off.
She uses a broken window to break the door open.
The two break in and Brick shoots her.
She shoots herself in the head, killing herself.
Brick is arrested and taken to jail, where he is put on trial.
He is found guilty of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole.
Sasha, who grew up in the ghetto in Detroit, is convicted and is sentenced to five years in prison.
Her son, Brick, is sentenced and sent to prison after he is found not guilty of second-degree manslaughter.
She, too, is sent to jail and has her sentence reduced to two years in the state penitentiary.
The three siblings were married when they were children.
Sassy is married to a black American.
She and Brick are living together, and she has two daughters.
Bricks daughter, Jameelah, is a lawyer, and he has a family in the United States, and Sassy lives with her mother in Los Angles.
The family’s lawyer, David Harris, said his family would have liked to see the film, which focuses on the issues raised by the three siblings, but would have preferred the filmmakers to have gone back to the basics of the issue, which was that the men are criminals who are being treated unfairly.
The issue was not addressed at all in the film and the filmmakers did not do that, Harris said.
In a recent New York Times article, the author, Mark Oppenheimer, called the film a “misogynistic, racist, misogynistic, racially insensitive, racist movie” and said the filmmakers used Black and Brown voices.
Oppenheim, who was a former president of CNN, said he was troubled by the film’s portrayal of Black women as helpless victims.
He said that even if he had been offended by the portrayal of the brothers, he would not have seen the film because the filmmakers “were not asking me to watch their movie.”
He said it was important for people to see it.
Oppenedheim said that he is “totally in favor of women’s rights,” but said he does not think women should be allowed to be victims.
He said it is “very clear that Black women should not be victims.”
In a statement released Tuesday, the filmmakers said the movie “does not reflect our values and the work that we do as journalists, and we are deeply sorry for the hurt and anger we have caused.”
They added that “Ragdoll” is “the most powerful, and the most important, Black-led documentary ever made.”
It said that the film “is not about racism or sexism, but about the many challenges women face on a daily basis, from being sexually assaulted to being murdered to being incarcerated.”
It also said the film includes scenes from the “Rent” movie, which features black women, and from the TV show “Beth and Spike,” in which the white male leads a black family.
The filmmakers said they wanted to be true to the story of the sisters
