Let me be upfront that I had never heard of this documentary, but then out of the blue it showed up in the theatre here in Cincinnati this weekend. I looked at the premise, and thought this could be quite interesting and decided to check it out. First things first: this documentary is funded by FreedomWorks, the conservative, Tea Party-leaning organization.

"Runaway Slave" (2012 release; 108 min.) follows conservative Baptist minister C.L. Bryant around the country, trying to delve into several topics, the main one being why the black community votes 95 percent for the Democratic party. Along the way, Bryant examines the civil war-era Underground Railroad, which brought "runaway slaves" across the Mason-Dixie line to freedom (incidentally, Cincinnati hosts the very impressive Underground Railroad Freedom Center, examining those very troubles times). Then we learn some interesting facts in the movie: it was not the Democrats, but the Republicans who opposed slavery, and it was due to Republicans' support in congress that L.B. Johnson was able to pass the Voters Rights Act of 1965, fiercely opposed by the southern Democrats. Yet due to the "New Deal" and several other events, the black community in general has fallen in line with the Democrats. At one point in the documentary, one of the black conservatives interviewed asks "so the Democratic Party told us in the 60s, 'we'll take care of you with generous government programs', but 50 years later, where has that gotten the black community to?". Pointed question, indeed.

Saw this movie over the summer, and it is a stunning documentary. As a 50-something, I have witnessed the decline of the American family generally, and the black community specifically. It was dumbfounding how things have so dramatically changed over my lifetime. I was unable to figure out where all of this was coming from. Runaway Slave takes the time to walk you through history and connect the dots. While Rev. Bryant's journey is that of a black man, he makes the case that we are all becoming enslaved by the political class. It behooves every American to see this movie. I cried for all of us that have been deceived by those who will give us goodies in exchange for our freedom. It is worth every penny....and then some. Support this movie and those that speak out in the name of FREEDOM!!

As a citizen of South Louisiana, having grown up during my formative years in Orleans Parish, New Orleans East specifically... I can say that I have seen first hand the damage and misery Progressive policy has wrought. Generation after generation of families in this area, have sadly fallen prey to political manipulation.

I saw it happening but had no idea what was happening. All I know is that I saw people who used to believe in strong families, strong parenting, good education, hard work, personal responsibility, pride, principles and faith, move to believing in the opposite of all of those ideals.

People who were moving up in the world, suddenly turned into angry, disgusted, unmotivated, resentful and distrustful jerks who became drains on society. They lost control of their children, the sons mainly, who became steeped in drugs and crime and violence. Sons who became so hate-filled, that they would actually be violent with their own Mothers.

One of my best friends in the late 70s/early 80s did some kind of major personality flip and went from being a funny, loving, compassionate, motivated, creative woman, into someone who hated "the man" and did a complete about-face. Her career ended at the time, our friendship disappeared, and her life basically stalled in hate.

It was only years later that someone I met, who happened to know her, told me that she had become involved in a Black Power type of political group, and had been swallowed up by it. It made total sense once I heard the story. It was like a cult of hate and violence.

Watching CL Bryant move through history and give "more of the story" as to what was going on in Politics, and how people have been so used, was not only eye-opening, but also VERY informative.

I grew up in the public housing projects of Nashville, Tennessee. I am now a physician who received all of my formal training within historical Black institutions. I received my medical degree from Meharry Medical College.

I became politically active after medical school in 1978. During this time I became very angry about ''what had been done to our people" and affiliated myself with most of the now familiar and established Black leadership. I helped organize both of Jesse Jackson's campaigns for president and was a Delegate to the National Democratic Convention both years he ran committed to the Jackson ticket. The organization we put together also challenged and changed the form of government we had in our city, resulting in Blacks winning four of nine seats on the city council.

What are the results of all of these efforts twenty years later? Blacks now have only two seats on the city council in our city. Billions of federal dollars have been spent to transform the city downtown into a beautiful tourist area, while Martin Luther King Boulevard, the main commercial retail strip in the Black neighborhood, has seen little progress. Violent Black on Black crimes are daily events. My disappointment with the established Black leadership can not be overstated.

This discussion of what has Black leaders been doing and saying the last twenty years must began. We must be honest and ask ourselves what do we have to show for it? What do we do now? We can not be distracted by White organizations such as the democrats, republicans or the tea party. BLACK PEOPLE NEED TO TALK!

Reverend Bryant is the right man, at the right time. As a Black man searching for answers, and after hearing his message, I will continue to listen and support him.

This movie is a great place to start the conversation.
