The Jacob Burns Film Center is generously offering our meet up group 25 tickets to the upcoming

Rosewood

Sun. Oct 6, 5:00 pm

In 1923 a group of white men burned a predominantly black
Florida town to the ground, slaughtering its residents—based on a lie. John
Singleton’s (Boyz in the Hood) incendiary dramatization of this shocking
episode stars Ving Rhames, Don Cheadle, and Jon Voight.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY:

Please note that this meet up will not have any organizer.  You must go to the box office to pick your ticket no later than 15 minutes before the start of the film.  You must include your full name in order to be put on the guest list.  I need this list no later than Wed at 9 am.  Please no exceptions.   If you reply yes to this please make sure it is an event that you can attend.  If you reply yes and your plans change that you can't attend please let me know so I can update this with the Burns. Because there is not an organizer for this event the Burns will be giving me a list of those that attended after the event.  If you are a no show you will not be eligible for future complimentary tickets.

    An example, this same kind of thing is going on DAILY in our "FAMILY COURTS" and innocent people are thrown out of their homes and JAILED DAILY! FALSE ALLEGATIONS and PERJURY is NOT prosecuted in "Family Court"! The reason is simply, the political correctness of the times! The "Hurd" instinct STILL EXISTS TODAY! What a tragedy!

    THE REAL TRAGEDY, is the fact that the environment that lead up to that tragic event are STILL ALIVE and WELL in AMERICA! This has caused WARS. ASSASSINATIONS, and the destruction of the middle class!

    We as a people (black & white, Jew and gentile) are MORE PROPAGANDIZED in 2013 than we were back in 1923! We cannot sit back NOW, thinking its OK because the shear brutality that took place in 1923 is NOW, some how CLEANED UP! This story was triggered by a result of a woman's FALSE ALLEGATION!

    The story of Rosewood is horrific! This film was an excellent documentation of the tragic events of January 1923! It MUST be viewed though with an understanding of what can happen in an environment of "institutional racism", created by PROPAGANDA, fueled by unbelievable ignorance, gone crazy! It should also be noted that the KKK was the most powerful in the 1920's!!!!

    Those who do not study the mistakes of history are doomed to repeat them. Yes, difficult to see but necessary to be aware of. I thought the movie was very well done

    I am currently looking for people to interview in my new film concerning Family Court Corruption. Any members who feel like they were abused by the "system" (during a divorce or separation) should contact me! We can make change! Thanks, Paul.
