Ep.#111-"12 Years A Space Slave"
In this episode Tariq talks about the criticism he received for his latest review of the new Star Wars 7 movie and the inherent racism in the film.

Tariq spends the first half deflecting criticism of his alleged support of R. Kelly, but since he never bothers to repeat what he said about Mr. Kelly the audience is left to figure out whether the term "support" is warranted.

OK And, so.

Nigga shut the fuck up. I saw the movie before I heard Tariq's analysis and I walked out the theater saying to myself, "What the fuck was that bullshit?" I'm a Star Wars fan but I'm not a blind dumb nigga...like you. They shit on Finn in so many ways it's ridiculous...and then tease the audience with him holding a lightsaber...only to have his ass beat into a coma. The only good thing he did was shot down some enemies when he was piloting. He has a fucking lightsaber and loses to a GOTDAMN STORMTROOER...BITCH OPEN YOUR EYES TO THE REAL. And every white character and their mama gets shot at by these "elite" soldiers and don't ever get hit but seem to be so good they always kill the stormtroopers and Finn gets his ass handed to him in melee combat...while WIELDING A FUCKING LIGHTSABER. If that isn't a slap to the face I don't know what is. I agreed with my brother that he made us both laugh throughout the movie but that's just it....THEY WANT BLACK MEN TO BE SEEN AS JOKES...NOT MEN OF POWER. I notice it on other shows where they will put the darkskin black man in pink or purple like they did in some fucking CBS show I saw yesterday. DON'T BE DUMB NIGGA ALL YOUR LIFE.
12/24/2015 01:47:54 am
on point analysis of the movie, within the first 10 minutes I could see it for what it was. He was portrayed as a cowardly liar and for any act of his to have value it was in service of the white characters.
12/24/2015 06:45:58 am
When I'm watching fantasy shit or animation I don't give a fuck about the bullshit you see.

I think your lack of knowledge about Star Wars and things Star Wars has left you barking up a bad tree. F'inn is a brand new character who will be in future films. That said,he just like a bumbling and inexperienced Luke Skywalker is just BEGINNING his hero's journey. If u watch the OTHER films you will see that the hero's journey BEGINS like this...unexperienced, unsure,and even "dumb" at times. J J Abrams and producers have said in many ways that Finn will be back...and when he gets the force...he'll be kicking ass and taking names. With W.S in almost every facet of our lives,don't bring it into the nerds last refuge:Sci Fi films. I'm just wondering how you'll backpedal and RETRACT ur statements when Finns hero journey comes full circle and he is the badass he already IS in the comics.
12/24/2015 08:25:45 am
I have to agree, yes Tariq is right about black always being a supportive actor in movies, but since this was his first Star Wars I disagree with him on so many levels. He need to watch the whole saga then make an opinion. Star Wars is known to have a goofy sense of humor and all main characters run scared when the big villain comes out at first.
12/24/2015 06:08:51 pm
You are wrong on so many levels I don't even know where to begin. Finn was/is nothing like Luke Skywalker. Even in his most basic stage of development everyone around him knew that there was potential for greatness within him. He had something special and in the first film had moments of heroism. There is no such power or moments of heroism in the Finn character. You can attempt to justify your favorite negro character all you want but you are the one who has it twisted. Finn is more C3P0 than Luke Skywalker, stop it.
12/26/2015 10:51:58 am
You don't deserve the title of James Earl Jones lol! His Vader voice is one with the force. No you are wrong on so many levels just stop with the BS about Finn being like C-3PO, and no Tariq he aint T-Dog or some lesbian. Yah need to stop reaching a watch the whole damn saga including the prequels no on his ustream or show ever mention the prequels, where you see why Finn and Rey relationship probably can't happen, due to the darkside. Even when Rey keep telling Finn to stop holding her hands all that was meant for humor and goofiness, like how he drank that alien animal water. Plus you got to consider the fact that she thought he was a thief. Then when they get use to each other you see her in one scene hugging Finn.This happens in alot of movies where characters who don't trust each other at first, eventually start to connect later. Yah miss that important fact. I will laugh if Finn and Rey have a successful relationship with romance in the next 2 Star Wars, playing out Tariq and other clueless people.

Bitch shut the fuck up. Luke Skywalker got a medal at the end of the first Star Wars and WAS NOT SHIT ON LIKE FINN WAS YOU IGNORANT PIECE OF SHIT. Stay dumb monkey...teaching you anything of value is futile. It doesn't matter if you give a fuck...you trash ass bitch...you can't deny what happened in the movie. Finn showed up as a scared coward running from duty and ended up in a coma...and got his ass beat by a damn stormtrooper...even though he had a lightsaber. There are many, black men in the military that have high or even regular positions and yet and still they decided to say he was a fucking sanitation worker...IF YOU CAN'T SEE THE LITERAL SHITTING ON FINN IN THAT ONE ASSIGNMENT OF DUTY THEN YOU ARE MORE RETARDED THAN I THOUGHT. A FUCKING SANITATION WORKER...MEANING HE CLEANED UP THE SHIT AND PISS OF THE OTHER TROOPERS...AND THAT'S WHAT THEY DID TO HIS CHARACTER HAD HIM WALLOWING IN SHIT. They better give him justice because as it stands...even Jar Jar Binks had a better "journey" in his first appearance compared to Finn. They had this nigga chasing a white bitch that didn't even give a fuck about him and he ends up getting in a coma as a result while SHE saves the day. Fuck you and your stupidity and blindness. If you can't see the W. S. in that then you are an idiot that just doesn't give a fuck.
12/24/2015 05:08:10 am
I'm whst Tariq calls a nigga nerd. And I'm into star wars but the film did feel odd when it came to Fin. It sucks that I can't enjoy star wars and not think about racism.
12/24/2015 08:15:35 am
Sam Jackson could have atleast been on the magazine, he was a Jedi...lol. Im gonna see the film this weekend

Yes he was and he was a badass and so was Lando. George Lucas, who's banging a fine ass black wife wasn't racist. It's these "white slavers" who bought his property that are. Also note that of all the images they could have used they chose of Finn for that cover they chose to put him on the very bottom as a stormtrooper looking scared, tired, and in all honesty and almost apish. They did that on purpose. They could have portrayed him in his fly pilot jacket holding a gun or the lightsaber pose...fuck, even him just standing there looking like a hero...but yet and still those W. S. bitches decided to show him looking like an enemy monkey. Open your eyes to the real. Image is everything and THEY CHOSE THAT IMAGE OF HIM. I FEEL TERRIBLE FOR THE ACTOR HE IS SAYING ON EVERY INTERVIEW HE'S SO HONORED TO BE A PART OF THAT SHIT FEST.

I applaud you my brother for breaking down that bitchassness of "The Force Awakens" so thoroughly. You brought up some stuff I had forgotten. You covered it all and everyone needs to read your comment. I'm a huge Star Wars fan, I even saw the good in the prequels...including episode 1...but when I walked out the theater on Christmas day, prior to hearing Tariq's analysis...I was thinking to myself, "That bullshit was not worth the wait and damn they did that black guy dirty." Even the name Finn sounds like some damn childs name...a bitchass name...a GIRL'S NAME!!! And poor John Borega's English ass is saying in interviews that he's so honored to be a part of the movie. Nigga please...he sure was a sanitation worker because boy got covered in shit throughout that movie. .

finn got put in the "Finn Zone" lol
12/24/2015 12:43:12 pm
I think Finn is a metaphor for black Amerikkka. Just as the storm troopers are reminiscent of Nazis. Not surprised at all that white dudes are pushing to see Finn with a man instead of a white woman. After all feminizing the black male is the new agenda for WS. Meanwhile, white men will be seen with every race of woman in all forms of media to continue "conditioning" propaganda. Also, many of these black nerds are niggas who secretly want to be accepted badly by whites and you can tell how badly by the way many of them idolize and kiss up to whites on social media looking to make themselves "available" for any white friends who will have them. Just the same way many of these white dudes wont say shit when a black male gets killed unjustly, but will come out the woodwork to have compassion for a black woman treated unjustly for fear that they wont have a crack at a piece of black pussy. Not that I think about it, Im starting to think that may be the whole reason of showing black men with white women and white men with black women just to keep us divided so that we wont join together as a collective and will always be reaching out to them in some fashion instead of each other. The Jedi mind tricks are deep and vastly extensive.
Tariq got me cracking up at the end of this episode. Anyway, I agree that black people need to stop with this "things will get better tomorrow" which is full of BS. Today we are getting slaughtered. Tomorrow will not happen to any of us at this rate. Wake up!

Fuck star wars! I saw the original back in 1978 when i was 9 years old. It impressed me as a kid,but I'm almost 47. This debate about if this brother is buffoon or will get a better role the next time is really irrelevant. This is fucking science fiction. It may seem like dudes roll is something we should really care about,but crackers will cast us how they want to until those of us who have the financial means start our own shit like the late Oscar micheaux did during the 1919-1940's era. It can be done only if the majority of us who really give a fuck about how we are casted just say "enough of this nonsense".personally,though, i couldn't give a damn about this star wars bullshit. Just my opinion.

Once again you white supremist bitch...Finn was only there to serve the white characters in THIS MOVIE. WE AREN'T TALKING ABOUT THE FUTURE NON EXISTENT MOVIES WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE HEAR AND NOW. Movies like much of the media is a tool used to control your minds and the views of the masses and they purposely shit on that black man to keep that view clear in the minds of the masses you dumb fuck. AND THERE WAS AN UPROAR YOU SORRY BITCHASS RACIST...THERE WAS AN UPROAR BECAUSE A BLACK MAN WAS "SAVING" A WHITE WOMAN AND HE WAS HOLDING A LIGHTSABER A WEAPON OF JEDI POWER. THAT'S WHAT THE UPROAR WAS ABOUT. KEEP LIVING YOUR BULLSHIT LIE AND THINKING WE ARE TOO STUPID TO SEE WHAT'S GOING ON. YOU ARE GOING TO SLEEP BEFORE WE DO...AND IN THE NIGHT WE'LL SLICE YOUR BALLS OFF. THAT'S WHAT GOT YOU W.S., THE REAL SAVAGES...SCARED IN THE FIRST PLACE. HAHAHAHHA. FEAR OF THE BLACK MAN THAT YOU HAVE FUCKED OVER FOR SO LONG.
12/25/2015 05:10:41 am
To all black nerds who want to defend this white supremacist vomit called a movie explain something to me. Why didn't Finn get at least a drop of intimacy from Rey? What does him being a "developing" character as you say have to do with him not even getting a peck on the cheek? He almost died trying to save that woman and she showed no romantic interest in him whatsoever. I have never seen any white character ever in the history of film treated like that and if you say you have your a damn liar. I have seen animals in movies get treated more humane than that. She acted like his Blackness was going to rub off on her or something. That was 2 1/2 hours of pure awkwardness.
12/25/2015 07:33:31 am
Is intimacy given or it needs to be reciprocated? Stop asking dumb ass questions.
12/25/2015 08:37:25 am
The question isn't dumb it just your dumb ass can't answer the fucking question so that is your best response.
12/25/2015 07:35:49 pm
I highly doubt you can think for yourself.
12/28/2015 07:29:50 am
I have mixed thoughts on this... the movie seemed a bit scared to go there. But it may develop in the next episode.

Yeah they are pushing the interracial agenda to keep black people divided...the tool of the devil is divide and conquer and white supremist are Satanists...true savages. They called Native Americans savages...people who respected the land, the animals, and respectfully used every part of the animals they killed...and those White Supremists killed the majority of them for their land. Who is the real group of savages? The interracial agenda was in full force for nigga nerds here...the message was futily chase white women who will NEVER WANT YOUR ASSES and even sacrifice yourself for the bitches...but they will be alright in the end...you'll be dead or in a coma. Like that message? I didn't think so. I'm so glad many black people are waking up to the bullshit and GOD BLESS TARIQ NASHEED FOR BEING A FORUM FOR TRUTH. I noticed all of this PRIOR TO HEARING Tariq's analysis. I remember leaving the theater thinking that was some bullshit...and I wonder if anyone else saw what I just saw in regards to how terribly Finn was treated. I felt lied to because they had him looking heroic on a poster with a lightsaber and that's not what happened at all in the movie. I CAN UNDERSTAND HIM NOT BEATING THAT BITCHASS MARILYN MANSON PETULANT CHILD DADDY KILLING WHITEBOY KYLO REN. He was a sith lord in training with much experience murdering people...BUT FOR HIM TO GET SHIT ON BY NOT BEING ABLE TO DEFEAT A SIMPLE FUCKING STORMTROOPER IN MELEE COMBAT WAS UNFORGIVABLE...AND SOLIDIFIED THEM NOT GIVING FINN ANY TYPE OF SHINE AS A "HERO" CHARACTER. And yet they have him running around trying to save that white bitch...man that was fucking joke.
12/25/2015 01:31:34 pm
I need a lot more info (haven't listened to the show, just downloaded cause of Internet instability), but I am reminded (don't know if Tariq mentioned it or not) that George Lucas did that movie called Red Tails.
12/25/2015 01:33:56 pm
I am saying I think Aisha Tyler is bonafide card carrying bedwench, but not necessarily Mellody Hobson, I need more info. I wouldn't see Star Wars anyway until it comes to DVD
12/25/2015 02:58:15 pm
is it possible that finns character was cooned up, because george lucas no longer has control of the star wars movie franchise? his wife is black. he made red tails with his own money - in star wars , his version, lando and mace windu were strong leaders, who did positive things. no buffoonery

Come on Anakin from the jump was made out to be a child badass even as a youth he's a top racer, mechanic, and inventor (C3PO for example), at the end he figires our how to fly a naboo fighter and kicks ass again as a child. Luke blew up the death star. That last scene where everybody got medals what was lukes medal for?! For sum shit he did or would do in the next film, COME ON SON, When they announced him (John Boyega) all the white supremacist was very vocal but after the opening all that went away?! Why?

@Sheep that's the perfect name for a white supremacist dick riding fuck boy asshole who can't answer a goddamn simple question. Yea that bitch should've showed more gratitude for saving her fucking life. If he was white there would've been no problem with her doing so. Thats the whole point of me bringing up the damn question in the first place you idiot. If race doesn't matter like so many of you nerd niggas claim then why was Finn treated different from EVERY other male character that has ever starred in that damn movie. You claim his race didn't matter but clearly it does just by your responses.

Daniel Craig(storm trooper JB007) wanted to be in the movie so bad he played the stupid Storm Trooper that freed Rey when she did the Jedi mind trick on his ass. I wouldn't be so quick to diss John Boyega after all ,He's the one Laughing all the way to the Bank .HE is going to make alot of money (autograghs , toys, new movie roles etc etc.) I'm sorry Tariq but your money(Paper) doesn't come close to His.
12/30/2015 10:16:56 am
Tariq's critcism is painfully on point. Star Wars formerly featured a few of the more solid black characters in fantasy: Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) and Mace Windu (Samuel L. Jackson). Now, Finn is the poster boy for a lost type of hero. He's bumbling, stumbling, non-heroic most times, and filled with visible fear. No one is seen as weak as he is.

I'm starting to see that every comment section on every website is filled with white racist ... why would yall even be on a black website? You muthafuckas are sick
12/30/2015 08:10:54 pm
I can kinda see where Tariq was going...but I still have to call it a stretch. The reason why...as far as the poster that they keep posting up...That's an issue of Entertainment Weekly, its not a Star Wars franchise made publication...so if you want to say that Entertainment Weekly is portraying blacks as buffons by putting him in that picture then I could agree with you...but as far as that holding true for the Star Wars franchise...can't cosign that one.
12/30/2015 08:45:39 pm
Good points. I will reserve my judgment for future episodes, but Tariq may have a point in that black protagonists never kill any important white villains... Like Tariq's analysis on Django unchained.
1/2/2016 09:53:58 pm
" And as far as why the black dude got his ass kicked by the bad guy in the beginning...well, the bad guy knows the force - Finn doesn't. The bad guy knew how to fight with a light saber...Finn didn't. I mean, that's not racist, that's just what it was. Why was white girl able to fair so much better...well, she has the force within her."

Don't be a blind, in denial bitch all your life. White Supremacy was in full effect in this movie. You ever see a white character drinking out of pig trough like a damn animal? I think you forgot about that part. Even the name Finn sounds like a little girl's name. Fuck out off here with that " But to overall, say that the movie is a symbol of white supremacy or an example of white supremacy in cinema...yeah...I believe that's a stretch." BUUUUUUULLSHIT!!
12/30/2015 09:24:24 pm
Just saw the new Star Wars movie a couple days after hearing the podcast. I can see Tariq's point's about Finn's character, but I think that a lot of his criticisms are out of context.
1/7/2016 01:40:40 pm
White people are racist.
12/31/2015 05:43:03 am
the part in the movie about Finn being a Janitor was wrong. John boyega should of told the script writer "Yo ! you got to change this shit to something else because I'm not saying it. '' but my guess is he saw the amount money of He's getting from the Star Wars franchise ; He thought fuck It why ruin good thing and I don't blame him for it. Luke Skywalker was a complete DICK in the original Star Wars movie . thats why those two martian motherfuckers wanted to kill his ass in that Bar scene ; that old fuck Obi wan kenobi had to save his ass. I wouldn't be so quick to dis Finn. Tariq is just talking SHIT . I bet you if they offered Tariq a role in the Stars Wars movies he wouldn' t be saying fucken word about nothing . John Boyega struck Gold landing this role in the new Stars War Trilogy. Daniel Craig ( the actor who plays James bond ) got a small role in The Force Awakens . He played a Dumb Ass StormTrooper ,the one that Rey did that Jedi mind trick on . you can't even see Daniel Craigs face if anybody got dissed is him. let Me finish by saying Star Wars is science fiction . Lets give some credit to John Boyega for becoming an International movie Star.
12/31/2015 06:40:40 am
I am lmao. I can't believe out of all of the topics Tariq does, Star Wars gets the second largest amount of comments. The last time the comment section was this hot, it was over interracial dating.
12/31/2015 06:42:33 am
I mean Disney owns both Marvel and Lucasfilm, the originator of Star Wars.
12/31/2015 07:30:35 am
And on some real talk, I can make an assessment on a character based on the one actual movie that the character is in. To extrapolate past that one movie is wishful thinking, that slave mindset that the blacks got from that white man's christian religion.
12/31/2015 09:45:46 am
John boyega is not a sell out, his dream is to be an actor and he did it. that role was coveted by many actors internationally but John got it, so why should people diss him . have you accomplished your dreams? and to be honest with you He couldn't give a fuck about what you or me have to say about him , He don't know us but we sure as hell know about him.

No one is dissing John Boyega...I feel for the guy. Because he is an actor and was so excited to get the role and then he had to be shit on the way he did. I'm sure when he got the role he didn't expect for the character to get shat on...they didn't reveal all that to him at the time of getting the role. It just played out that way. And I understand him not wanting to give up a job...I'm sure he has bills to pay and at least his mouth to feed. We are all just highlighting the fact that Finn as a character was shat on without redemption and even that bitchass Jar Jar Binks got redemption in his first and thankfully only major movie...fuck out of here if you can't see the truth.
1/6/2016 08:28:18 pm
Tariq's review regarding The Force Awakens was on point! As I was watching the movie. I kept thinking to myself if JJ Abrams told John Boyega to pretend he was Kevin Hart. I'm serious. Boyega in some scenes was acting like Kevin Hart and yeah it seemed like he was just there to service the other heroes.
