Nate Parker is a Rapist, and “Birth of a Nation” is His Exit
Ezinne Ukoha

I read your article, and I know there are millions of women who have been sexually victimized violently and left to recover alone. But whether you forgive Nate Parker or not, men, in general, believe they have an entitlement to living the fantasies of mad sex. Understand that the fantasies originated from slavery, a subject not taught in K-12 curricula. White plantation owners we know raped black women frequently to increase his profits He was also someone who raped black men, black boys, and black girls. These were not fantasies, but sobering realities of me with a conscious mindset making money with the Other. You should also understand the white plantation owner’s wife too. When he would leave the farm, the white wife would seek the fantasy with her husband’s enslaved black men, and if he refused she would threaten to yell “rape.” These relationships were never intended to last or survive the scrutiny of whites in general. Unfortunately, today we can be critical of the sexual exploits of others and not own up to the histories of these encounters. I am sympathetic to the woman who was raped in your story, but Nate Parker and others like him have been taught they can only be successful with white women, and that bothers me. Black men who have reached levels of greatness instruct their sons, their nephews, and their black kin in general to settle up with white women to maintain their status, because black women lack the empowerment of white women. That’s what bothers me. And you should see the movie “Birth of A Nation” not because it is a Nate Parker project, but historically it is very accurate of the Era known as Slavery.
