"It easier to build strong children than to fix broken men" a great quote from the great Frederick Douglass. Yet in the movie "Burning Sands", our own black brothers are shown intentionally breaking our black brothers for supposedly some diluted, perverted form of fraternal brotherhood. You shouldn't be able to use Frederick Douglass's quote to seemingly approve this cinematic madness. We simply have to do better, that's just my feeling, everyone is free to have another thought but to me, our magnificent ancestor Frederick Douglass rolled over in his grave when that quote was evoked in that movie. You see he imaged our community building black children due to the breaking of our black brothers from ignorance, racism, and hatred by whites not by those of the same color.
