83 years after the time frame & events of the movie, The Great Debaters, Mr. Livingston stands proud and very articulate as he gives the 2016 commencement speech at Harvard University. Much to be proud of....much.
I really thought this a beautiful message...also a dangerous one to many. Let me explain it this way...when my plumbing breaks down, I'm gonna pay a Certified Plumber probably $100/hr to fix it & warranty it for however long. To make that kind of money (and pay the rent), you gotta go to school. Period. No amount of metaphysical stargazing however wonderful it may be, is going to get that plumber's certification that most will demand. School is required. While this message doesn't SAY schooling isn't necessary in life, it comes uncomfortably close to giving that impression!
I hate the fact that we need to prove over and over again that we are capable of amazing things. we do this every single day and yet each time it seems like "this is the first black person doing this" but hey, we are so proud of proving you wrong all the time. But yet it is an accomplishment because we do it despite all the racism and rocks we find on the way. SO PROUD
Its all memorised. He is acting. I can't understand why so many people find this diarrhea marvellous. Some of you Americans surely are stupid. Compare this shitty speech with Denzel Washington speech in this video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BxY_eJLBflk
Denzel Washington speech is far better delivered. That's why he is a great actor and this guy is not.
Creole in the house. What???? If you feel racism it is mental illness. Get over it.
It was sooooo long ago. Stop with the lie. How come Jelly Roll Morton and
the DeBois movement could make it??? How come so many INDIVIDUALS
could make it with out the need to look back and be hate???
"Injustice is telling them they are stars, without acknowledging the night the surrounds them..." Just a brilliant metaphor/analogy.
The thing about education today - is that it bankrupts you before you have begun. Because you have to go into so much debt, just to get a piece of paper that says you are qualified to begin - so far in debt that it takes decades to pay off the debt. We are weighed down with debt - even before we begin our journey in life. How is this a key? It is a ball and chain.
With the dark cloud of debt hanging over our heads - we are adverse to taking risk... and it is the risk takers that drive innovation and new ways of being. If you want your country to truly be the greatest - education should be free.
who gave you the keys asshole?.... real life out here... we have enough racist black con men in the world.... cut the sensationalistic shit... and quit stealing the honor of the many millions of people in this world in our time who were not taking shit from you but getting hurt themselves in the name of lifting your sorry ass up.
you fn suck... and harvard may not be smart enough or wise enough to be ashamed of you.. but they should be... you dishonor the men who actually made stuff better..and with bill clinton you gave the credit to fn money changers in tyrannical governments falsifying the arc of the covenant..
quit being sleezy blacks claiming they got the short end of any godamn thing... you were fn cheap with eveyrones lives.. and you were so because what?
because what?.... because you were held back?... f your godamn everlasting name you cheap fuck...your mom and dads names too...
you weren't talking trash about tupoc or some rap star telling blacks to call a patriot uncle tom.. .you wernt talking shit about rap stars or politicians or preachers telling black people there was no hope... or that white people were evil... or to call women "bitches and hoes"...
you were talking exactly what you perceived yourself as needing to say in order to feed off of something you knew was wrong....
you are a moron
and you are exactly why it is wrong for money or for social movements to place "just anyone" into the highest intellectual education institutions of any land....
you should not have gone to harvard...many should not have been associated with it... you were not smart enough to know... not even with the vast access to education you were given.
there is no measure of your shit sensationalistic false claim making cheap trickster ass that has any business inspiring the youth of any nation....
as they emulate you... they will think it was the false claims that made it work....
there is a word for it.... godamn you for bringing it to my mind... shame on your stupid cheap ass.... and shame on your teachers
i hope you die a death at least as bad as any one of the thousands driven to suicide as the product of legislative abuse brought on by niggerdly motherfuckers such as you.
real life... wake up you sorry excuse for an educated and worthwhile human being.... shame on your godamn name
Why do people make their own regalia? Because they don't work hard enough to earn actual regalia? Harvard's affirmative action diplomas going to people who took the spots of better students who would have done much more with them, unfair and sad.
This is a carefully constructed program made by the controllers of the major 'illuminati cabal' mind control centre...Harvard university. Any doubts? Just look at his scarf with it's masonic symbology...and listen carefully to his scripted words about rocket ships and the stars. Education is the key...but this is NOT education...this is programming...full stop. Donovan is a bit player in a big new script...and if Harvard is involved then it will not be of any assistance to a humanity free in will...and of fear. Believe me.
