Roots (2016)

I saw the original one many years ago and it was brilliant. However, the new version is equally great and I have to admit I like it more than the original because this version  is more realistic. The majority of the actors are British so it’s no wonder the acting is superb. British actors have more training than American actors and they also have a lot of experience in theater. Forest Whitaker is by far one of the most talented American actors. I don’t see why there are so many people angry by  this miniseries, the fact that it deals with slavery is ALWAYS relevant. Yes we have to move forward, but that doesn’t change the fact that it happened and it is one of the most DISGUSTING, INHUMANE periods of American history.
