American Gods


Recommended Posts

Haven't seen it yet but from the little research I've done on it already, I don't like it.
Just more racist stereotypes hidden (and not so hidden) in well planned acting and directing.

You got a Black man called Mr. Nancy (short for Anansi but still a woman's name) in a clown suit gritting his teeth and looking crazy.
He's known as a "trickster"

And another Black man named Shadow Moon who is an ex-convict.

I don't give a damn how well you dress it up or how good the acting is......
It's just more stereotypes of Black people acting stupid, crazy, and criminal while the White characters are running the show.

Poison will still harm you regardles of how great the food it's slipped in tastes.
