OPINION: I can’t even understand how anyone with a decent bone in their body could condone such a series. A series in which people are enslaved. If we are calling for Gone with the Wind to be taken down, Aunt Jemima relabeled and Confederate statues taken down because they are offensive, how is this not just as offensive?
The only word I can find to accurately describe this series is DEMONIC. The devil has influenced this group of people to come together and put together a chain of horrible acts to make people today, who had nothing to do with slavery, feel the pain that the devil encouraged demonic people in the south (Democrats) to do to another race.
I thought I could write about how blacks were some of the first slave owners here in America, and I could bring up how the British sold white Irish people into slavery here in America. But to be honest, it was all just evil. No matter who the person was or the race.
Racism, division, unforgiveness, abortion, murder, hate, and revenge are all tools used by the devil. God doesn’t want us to drag through our past. He wants us to look to Him and become better people. We do that through, forgiveness, faith, trust that He will take care of our enemies, believe that He has a plan for our lives and we must put our faith in Him and not man.
This series will not help heal the past. But it will renew blacks deep sadness and hate that this happened to other blacks because of the color of their skin. And we should be sad and hate that this happened. But we should never want this to happen to anyone else for any reason. Not even in a series to make some people feel a certain way.
May God make all His people see that this is the devil at work.

LOS ANGELES, June 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The new series “Cracka” is likely to cause a storm of controversy for the premise: “What if the roles were reversed?”
WARNING: THIS VIDEO HAS MATURE CONTENT
The movie offers a present-day so-called white supremacist who is magically thrust back in time to an alternate past where Africans enslave whites and rule the land known as America. “In a world where white privilege, systematic oppression, and minority protest in order to break the chains of bondage runs regular, white supremacist Michael Stone is doing everything he can to maintain his privilege by exercising every opportunity to ensure the America he knows and loves continues to remain pure and more importantly, remain white!” Deaths that are happening now by the hands of police and white supremacists to African Americans today, this will possibly shed some light on the pain that black people feel in other eyes. Since the release of the trailer on Juneteenth, it has reached over 550k views on Youtube in 48 hours!
The brainchild for this series was created by director Dale Resteghini, a Caucasian man born in Boston, Massachusetts that made his mark with rap videos.
After the lead character “Lorenzo Antonucci Jr.” rains down blows on the motorist, the pseudo-Nazi returns to his home. He then finds himself staring at the barrel of a shotgun and enslaved by a black man. The Director Created CRACKA to help white people in America see racism from a new perspective. America is broken and has been for a long time. Nothing else prior to this moment has worked as clearly as we are in a race war. No one seems to want but here it is and perhaps through provocative art… the new conversation can begin peacefully.
“Cracka” relives all of the horrors of slavery such as rape, beatings, and even name changes. The series stars a bevy of talents including Lorenzo Antonucci, Hakeen Kae-Kazim, rapper Saigon, Kathryn Kates, and James Darnell. “Cracka” doesn’t just tackle racism; it confronts it with the harsh truths. This unique series forces us – as one whole race, society, and overall to pay attention. – We will then look past color, look past our fears and pain, and see ourselves as people through the much-needed lens of love.” The series does not have a date but is expected to hit in the fall of 2020, just in time for the American presidential election.
“I applaud the bravery and vision for the creation of CRACKA.” – Sybrina Fulton (Mother of Trayvon Martin)
