Upcoming Show "Cracka" Puts Blacks As Slave Owners And Whites As Slaves

AllHipHop Staff

What history flipped the script on slavery and the Africans kept slaves? "Cracka" explores this alternative non-reality.

(AllHipHop News) The upcoming series "Cracka" is likely to cause a storm of controversy for the premise: "What if the roles were reversed in slavery?"

The movie offers a present-day so-called white supremacist who is magically thrust back in time to an alternate past where Africans enslave whites and rule the land known as America. 

A synopsis explains, "In a world where white privilege, systematic oppression, and minority protest in order to break the chains of bondage runs regular, white supremacist Michael Stone is doing everything he can to maintain his privilege by exercising every opportunity to ensure the America he knows and loves continues to remain pure and more importantly, remain white!"

The movie is the brainchild of director Dale Resteghini, a white man born in Boston, Massachusetts that made his mark with rap videos. Resteghini worked with a colorful ensemble of artists including Pitbull, Akon, Lil Wayne, Ice Cube, Guns N Roses, Flo Rida, RZA, TYGA, Soulja Boy, Ty Dolla, Nicki Minaj, Diddy. Now, he is taking his talents in a new, controversial manner. 

In the trailer of the movie, which is slated for a fall 2020 release, the protagonist - tatted with racist Nazi symbols - begins to harass an African American motorist.  It is at that point that the violence starts. After the lead character rains down blows on the motorist, the pseudo-Nazi returns to his home. He then finds himself staring at the barrel of a shotgun and enslaved.

"Cracka" then relives all of the horrors of slavery such as rape, beatings, and even name changes. The series stars a bevy of talents including Lorenzo Antonucci, Hakeen Kae-Kazim, rapper Saigon, Kathryn Kates, and James Darnell.

The cast isn't simply Black people perpetrating the same sick injustices as their counterparts. 

"Cracka doesn’t just tackle racism; it confronts it in a way you can’t possibly imagine. This unique series forces us - as a people, society, and overall a collective human unit - to look past color, look past our fears and pain, and see ourselves as people through the much-needed lens of love."

The series does not have a date but is expected to hit in the fall of 2020, just in time for the American presidential election. 

The trailer is below and comment.

So...in this series Africans are the ones who beat, massacred and pillaged the Indians to steal land? Are the ones who have the modern privilege? Is there white riots and protests with signs saying "white lives matter?" In the end this show will do nothing but cause a full circle of racial tension.

the problem is that we ignore our history and through that very active choice to ignore have created racism that has become systemic and thus REMAINS a problem to this day...denial is the word of the day and we as a people and a nation have created the environment for what is happening today because of our choice to NOT look at the problem...like dust under the carpet we hope it will just go away and don't like it when our denial is shoved in our collective faces...to try and shove this issue under the "carpet" of another issue such as human trafficking in unconscionable...we just have to work on both because our denial tends to have been around that issue as well as anything that upsets the status quo...in other words it IS relevant...

Here's an idea. Yes, focus on eliminating the slavery that exists now and stop enabling the leeches that want special status and payouts for their ancestor's slavery. Because the descendants are making more money than any other black community on the planet...so how are they so oppressed?
Whites have died in "no-knock" entries too. I didn't do it, my kids didn't do it. I won't bow. Don't be a stooge. I absolutely oppose brutality of any kind, bully cops, Antifa, BLM...but blacks enslaved blacks and sold them centuries ago and I will not have their blood on my hands.

Oh, sorry, I didn't see your "our history..."
Stop murdering and raping and robbing and resisting arrest and maybe you won't die...
But live your life as good as you want and you will most likely be murdered by another black man for your shoes before you ever get pulled over again by a cop...wtf does THAT say about your "history"?

Imagine being this retarded to the point where you think it’s just about police brutality and slavery. You clearly lack any kind of sympathy and probably some racist whose getting tired of getting criticized for helping white America keep going the way it is. I don’t even need to explain to you why you’re wrong go figure it out for yourself you fucking imbecile

Your history isn't ignored. It is being re-lived every freaking day, being blasted through the media about how your people have been wronged. Go to a Native American Reservation and see what it's like to have your people crushed. Blacks have more freedom and opportunity in America than any other country on the planet. You need to stop re-living your history and create some of your own.

Because of Charles Darwin's racist ass and the man who held a man named Otta Benga in a New York zoo for display to compare him to monkeys/apes/gorillas. They believe in evolution and blacks are supposedly savages bc they did not evolve like white people. It's so ignorant.

THIS HAS BEEN DONE BEFORE !...and BETTER. Google "12 years a slave full documentary"...theres a 25 minute documentary where the true story behind the movie 12 YEARS A SLAVE is done,where the director tells the story with the roles reveresed.Really well done,I recommend it.

This need to stop! We don’t need a retelling of our history and pain reflected / being appropriated. I get it maybe you’re trying to get to that white watcher get them to care see it from that perspective. We don’t need this kind of film to understand that. People need help from Psychologist they need a system that’s no longer broken we don’t need to keep on trying to fight a race war. Our people were never murderers it was taught to us by the Europeans we were kind and loving and it will always be we don’t need to be portrayed in this light that’s them it’s not us we take the higher ground and we always will and we don’t need to be portrayed like that to see it.

Who is the Coony House Negro who writing and directing? Because only a power hungry false prophet would make this filth. Black people never wanted revenge or to own slaves. We just want equality. Shit like this stifles that progress.

There's a lot of debate about historical slavery. And while it was all wrong and evil it is no longer relevant. The slavery that IS relevant is the slavery of all the little kids that are being used by human traffickers and customers of all races.
Enjoy your series, fine. But if you REALLY care about the plight of slaves then do something about it. There are slaves NOW of all races. Do something about it.
If you don't but you have your laugh about watching whitey get whipped then you're just as big a pos as the slave owner. You're just as sick. And ignore the little kids (of all races) that are getting raped on an hourly basis for profit. Enjoy your show you sick worthless leech.

Interesting concept, but still deplorable! My ancestors of my Father were Palatine Germans and became indentured servants to cover the Crown's costs while they were refugees in England as well as covering the boat fare. They "thought" they were coming to land granted from Queen Anne.

Neither side of my family EVER owned slaves. They bought small farmsteads that their families worked. Most of the men also worked in coal and copper mines to make ends meet.

My Father's Great Grandfather and several Great Uncles died while fighting for the Union for Indiana. They're purported to have abhorred slavery, possibly because of what their ancestors dealt with after arriving here. My Mother's Family all arrived from England, Wales and Ireland just before the Civil War and again were miners and small farmers which the family worked. None had much money, hence the reason that they subsidized the household by mining.

Slavery WAS and IS appalling and there were many in America who were vehemently opposed to it. The slaves who were freed should be PROUD that they survived and persevered in the face of such the atrocities they suffered.

Did you know that out of nearly 13 Million people in 1830, there were less than 4,000 slaveholders with less than 13,000 slaves. I'm sure there may have been more OR less families who owned slaves but not everyone in America was tainted by slavery. Most Americans lived rough lives just to survive and couldn't afford ONE slave, let alone tens or hundreds. But they DID leave their Families and Farms to fight the Confederacy and win the slaves freedom. Many did not return because of it. We HAVE grown as a Country and learned from the PAST! Is there racism? Yes, and on all sides! But I and my immediate family have lived by Dr. King's ideal of judging character and deeds, not skin color. Please try to temper your vitriol or it WILL tear us apart and then there won't be ANY money to be made by either race!

I'm appalled by the current attempt to erase history, because we can't change what happened in the past and our future progeny NEED to learn about EVERY aspect from the beginning to today so it can't be repeated!

MASSIVELY thought out perception with this. I believe the creator/writer of "GET OUT" & "US" has a similar film coming up, with African characters living successful lives being siphoned back into slavery times. Just hope there's something to TRULY learn from "ALL PEOPLE" with this!! Also, to address the one Native American brotha that commented, our ancestors were stolen from their homelands and BRUNG here!! The "LAND OF THE FREE, & HOME OF THE BRAVE", enslaved US!! This country was built on the bones of our people, as are yours! WE should stand TOGETHER in this fight!!

The trailer had peaked my interest up until the white dude fought back and it starts feeling like it eventually becomes a White Django Unchained towards the end versus being a self reflection. Unfortunately I'm not with it, all this will do is create more division instead of more thinking and talking.

Amazed how people can't stomach it because it's in reverse. Racism @ it's worst, is the truth about what actually was done to the black culture and still continues. It's needed, especially for all the Caucasians who say they don't understand. These crimes were committed by their bloodlines. In 2020, lots still refuse to change. It's Time 2 look in the Soul

Maybe people should worry about current events but there just isn't any play in that is there?

"All I care about is money —Umaru In his own confession, Abdulahi Umaru, a native of Kadawa area of Kano state said; “I was arrested because I was into human trafficking. As a commercial bus driver plying the Abuja, Kano route, I worked for the human traffickers. I helped them ferry their victims from Abuja to Kano and would hand them over to the agent in Kano, who would take them to Niger Republic and from where they would go to Libya and become slaves. I don’t care what they do in Libya, though I have heard in the news that there is modern day slavery in Libya and how Nigerians are being treated in that country. All I care about is the money I am being paid.

This saddens me to see that people still try to use propaganda to influence others minds ... was this really really necessary? In the times we live already and we worked so hard and came so far to work on equality for all .. was this really necessary to stir up more drama and drift people further apart... its like all we worked for all the effort to get rid of racism and actually then some stupid fool go and make a movie like this....

Reminds me of the blue men in Europe. This already happened checked the basements of most of your more established museums like The Louvre in France.

Angry people only believe what others TELL them to believe. To actually do the research to approve or disapprove a statement requires independent thinking. Nowadays, this is a rare commodity found only in those willing to seek the truth. But when you’re dealing with mob mentality [weaker minds that are easily influenced], you’ll have greater success speaking to children who are willing to learn. Weaker minds only know anger and violence.
