Abc, Africa, and Anaconda: Dick Gregory been told us that "Roots" by Alex Haley & "Kunta Kinte" was a lie ELIJAH wsi8 @Regranned from @jbanxy - from @elijah_ws187 - "ROOTS" Planted the seed in generations all over the world. Another reason why many people will have the guts to tell that us we are all African slaves not knowing that it's all based on a lie and propaganda. If their ancestors didn't write about it centuries ago over and over throughout Africa it did not happen on the scale they claim. A few blacks who lived in London etc wrote about it and our colonizers. But no one else. Most of those blacks in London profited from it and were known Sellout's. *Via* Cris Junior!!!!!! Here are some little not known facts about the Pschyological Damaging tv series "Roots"! In January 1977, over a hundred million Americans watched the miniseries that was a lie called Roots, based on Alex Haley’s Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-winning story. Roots became a cultural phenomenon and encouraged more people to engage seriously with the history of slavery than anything before or since. A new four-night, eight-hour version of Roots broadcasted on History on Memorial Day. Haley paid $650,000 to settle a plagiarism lawsuit Like millions of other Americans, white author Harold Courlander watched Roots on ABC. What he saw struck him as very similar to his 1967 novel The African and he filed a lawsuit against Haley. Haley maintained that he had never heard of or read The African, which made it difficult for him to explain how a page from the book ended up in his notes, or how several passages in Roots were strikingly similar to The African. While the judge was preparing his ruling,Haley’s team agreed to settle with Courlander for $650,000. Roots reached over 100 million viewers and replaced Gone With the Wind as the most watched television program of all time. After broadcasting for eight consecutive nights in January 1977, Roots held seven of the top ten spots on the list of most viewed television programs of all time. Before Roots, Gone With the Wind, the 1939 historical epic film that NBC broadcast over two nights in 1976, held the all time television rating record.
