“Yeah, perfect. We know that when young people smoke 'M' it creates abnormal structures in the brain ... but if it means the Left will have more money to spend ... no big deal.”

mediumvillain on May 9, 2014 at 06:13:59

“That's funny, because Christie came out and said that he is opposed to legalization and used Colorado's "low quality of life" as an example;
nevermind that Colorado is higher rated than New Jersey in virtually every standard you would use to rate quality of life (besides median income which is not a good indicator due to massive inequality), almost all of which have either gone down or not improved at all since Christie became Governor. I live in NJ and the states with legalization are better options. NJ has gotten progressively worse from mismanagement and corruption in the Corzine and Christie eras. Christie's a total fraud.”

“Not only does this irresponsible judge not do the job she was trusted to do. In her overzealous attempt to protect this monster from "not doing well" in prison, she may have increased the danger of the children by allowing their pedophile father to be in close proximity. This has got to be a source of anguish for those children.”

“So happy that they won. The film and the performances were masterpieces. However, as a spectator, it was one of the most difficult films to watch. To be confronted by such a diabolical thing such as slavery, in such a real way. The film puts the spectator on the plantation. Witnessing all of the atrocities those people endured. It was frustrating, to not be able to do something, I wanted to react. We have all read accounts of slavery in history books. We have all been angered and embarrassed by our despicable past. This film brought it to life. Not only have amazing artists been recognized tonight, a very important part of our history has been brought to our attention in a very honest and real way and we must never forget that history.”

“..."a very important part of our history has been brought to our attention in a very honest and real way and we must never forget that history."

Yes. I think America would be a better place today (less ignorant and more tolerant) if that history, as well as the multitudinous contributions of black people, had been given the place it deserved in our history books, from elementary through high school.”

LesaSays on Mar 3, 2014 at 21:19:24

“As a black person I have not seen it, don't want to see it and may never see it. BUT I am so very happy that the film won. I'm happy for the screenwritter, the producers and the actors.My aunt bought me the book, I might read it someday, but I don't like how these kinds of movies and films make me feel about my fellow human beings so I'll just have to assume it was a great film.”
