The recent release of the movie "The American Society of Magical Negroes" has sparked a conversation about the social justice community's approach to addressing racism.

Despite its promising premise, the film has been met with a lukewarm reception, leading to its withdrawal from theaters after only three weeks.

The film, which was inspired by a Key and Peele skit, was criticized for its poor writing and lack of humor. Its jokes, which were intended to be satirical, were instead perceived as "clapter" lines, a term used to describe humor that elicits applause rather than laughter.

According to Culture Crave, the film only managed to accumulate $2.4 million at the box office and received a dismal 28 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes. Given that the movie's budget was estimated to be $15 million, this outcome represents a significant loss.

The failure of "The American Society of Magical Negroes" is a multifaceted issue. On one hand, it suggests that America is not as racially divided as the social justice left portrays it to be. This is not only because the general public did not show interest in the film, but also because the black community did not resonate with its message. If the film had truly resonated with the black community, it would have generated more enthusiasm, not only from the community itself but also from the media.

On the other hand, the film's failure is a critique of poor cinema. If the intention was to create a movie that condemns racism and highlights its absurdity, then it falls short when compared to successful films with similar themes, such as "Blazing Saddles."

The film's poor performance also points to a broader issue within Hollywood and other left-leaning areas. The belief that constantly highlighting and obsessing over racism makes one virtuous has led to an overemphasis on racism against one group, which in turn has resulted in racism against another.

The box office numbers indicate that narratives portraying America as a racist country are not resonating with audiences. Such narratives are not enticing white people to theaters for "educational" purposes, nor are they attracting the black community to indulge in self-victimhood.

The reality is that racism does not sell in America. This is not a racist country. However, there is a faction of leftists who are convinced that racial animosity permeates every aspect of our society. They are partially correct; racism is an issue, but it is one that the left, particularly those within Hollywood, needs to address.

Once the left acknowledges and addresses its own racism, we can begin to make progress as a nation. However, this is unlikely to happen in the near future, as racism is one of the left's most significant grifts. Without it, they would likely be forced to produce better quality movies.
