As much of the nation continues to find itself in the midst of a racial reckoning, protesters and those who oppose them are looking to find common ground.
This is a nation whose ideals are very much rooted in the idea that all men are created equal and that there shall be liberty and justice for all. There is no room for hate in the ideal American experiment, and the events of the last several weeks have served to reiterate that point.
Now, a music video director who has worked with the likes of Fallout Boy, Busta Rhymes, and Guns ‘n’ Roses, is set to release a controversial project in which the history of slavery in America is being reimagined with the racial roles reversed.
Director Dale Resteghini released the trailer for the independently funded film on Friday, saying it would be available for purchase on Amazon Prime and elsewhere later this year.
The trailer shows a white man with neo-Nazi tattoos being transported back in time to a version of America in which he is enslaved by black people.
The white neo-Nazi ‘protagonist’ is seen being subjected to brutal treatment at the hands of black slaveholders.
White people are seen being raped and lynched by their black overlords in the film.
The lead role of white supremacist Michael Stone is played by Lorenzo Antonucci, who previously depicted an unnamed henchman in Days Of Our Lives and was an uncredited extra in Game of Thrones.
Social media users were enraged by the idea.

Please note that if you search twitter for African-American response to the movie "Cracka," you find people saying things like "We didn't ask for this" and criticizing the fact that it portrays black men as rapists. This is not a black production, this is a Hollywood production.
