You know, I'd easily bet anyone $100 that director Steven Spielberg figured that he was really-really doing Blacks a big-big favor by making this film._____ But, with the way I see it - If The Color Purple doesn't prove to the viewer, once and for all, how much Blacks truly hate one another, then nothing will. This film puts Blacks in such a bad light that I'm truly surprised that nobody boycotted it upon its initial release back in 1985._____ I'd certainly say that with a movie like The Color Purple and with the White-Supremacist mentality of Spielberg's, Blacks don't need the KKK anymore - 'Cause it isn't White prejudice that Blacks need to fear. No. It's the deep-rooted hatred that Blacks obviously have for each other (as is evident in this film) that's the real issue here._____ Personally, I thought that The Color Purple, as a film, has been far too over-rated for its own good. And I also thought it absolutely hilarious that this film was nominated for 11 Academy Awards, but it didn't win a single one. You can certainly bet that the high'n'mighty Steven Spielberg was definitely banking, big-time, on snagging a few of those trophies to cram into his already over-crowded display cabinet.
