“Judas and the Black Messiah” represents the greatest what could have become for the African-American community.
The movie is not a what could have become cinematically because “Judas and the Black Messiah” is otherworldly as a film.
However, what would the African-American community look like now if savior type leaders like Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X or Fred Hampton did not die at the hands of a government-assisted assassin?
The government had a hand in the assassination of King in 1968.
The FBI played a role in the assassination of Malcolm X in 1965.
And the FBI straight up pulled the trigger, approximately 100 times, in the assassination of a sleeping Hampton.
But while the United States government showed utter cowardice and hatred for playing a role in the aforementioned assassinations, the biggest villain in “Judas and the Black Messiah” is the African-American that would sell out his own people for selfish gain.
