The Birth of a Nation (1915 film by D.W Griffith)
Its 100 years down the line and this movie is still a legacy. The Birth of a Nation is a
movie that portrays racism and runs for about three hours. The movie starts by showing the Civil
War and ends with Ku Klux Klan who saves the South from the black rule. In the movie, the
Cameroons are affected by the civil war. The movie is divided into 2 parts, the first one show
what happens before the civil war. The movie revolves around two families that are the Southern
Camerons and the Stoneman's family.
Some lecturers are against the use of the movie in the classrooms. The movie can be in
two different ways, one is where it is viewed as a representative of White supremacy or the
racism the other way to view the movie is a technology achievement, this is not enough and it is
important to look at all the angles of the movie.
One of the theories that can be seen from the movie is that when seeds are planted what
sprouts up is based on the seeds that were planted. So when wishing to harvest Marijuana
someone shouldn’t plant tomatoes. It with no doubt that the movie represents racism, it has
become a foundation of what Hollywood is and it should not be a problem when during Oscars,
people of color get nominated for awards (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I3kmVgQHIEY).
