Joe, I came across this story about Nat Turner who you may have heard of. He is an escaped slave who recruited a group of other escaped slaves who went on a murder spree slaughtering white Virginians until he was caught. I am very surprised the National Geographic Channel is showing this and calling him a patriot and endorsing memorializing him and building monuments in his honor. They have several key players in this show and they are very racist and using the N word the way they do with an ending in "a" and not "er." It's a very scary time for America when they start allowing violence and black power and honoring people who slaughtered white Americans. This show is just like the new "Birth of a Nation" and they are rewriting History in order to justify attacks on white people. I've included the first paragraph and the URL. It was hosted by the same person, Roger Guenveur Smith who did Birth of a Nation so you know it's the same. M.O. In 1831, Nat Turner began what would turn out to be the deadliest slave rebellion in American history. Over the course of 48 hours, Turner and a group of rebel slaves killed more than 50 white men, women and children in South Hampton, Virginia.

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In 1831, Nat Turner, an African-American slave and preacher, led a bloody slave revolt in Southampton County, Virginia. Turner is most remembered as a killer, rather than a freedom fighter driven by faith, but in RISE UP: THE LEGACY OF NAT TURNER, viewers will get a different perspective into his notorious legacy that extends beyond this rebellion. From executive producer Nate Parker, the one-hour documentary premieres on Friday, Oct. 7, at 10/9c on National Geographic Channel, coinciding with the Fox Searchlight Pictures theatrical release of critically acclaimed Sundance Jury and Audience Awards winner “The Birth of a Nation,” which is directed by Parker and is the dramatic story of this historic liberation movement.
