亚马逊会否认迈克尔·布朗的真实故事吗?AAi世界播


August was the sixth anniversary of the death of Michael Brown, the black teenager who was shot dead by a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo. The incident, and the nationwide coverage it attracted, marked the beginning of a period of mass protests against police, which culminated (let’s hope) after the tragic death of George Floyd in Minneapolis this May.

8月是密苏里州弗格森被白人警察枪杀的黑人少年迈克尔·布朗(Michael Brown)逝世六周年纪念日。这一事件及其在全国范围内的报道,标志着针对警察的大规模抗议活动的开始,今年5月乔治·弗洛伊德(George Floyd)在明尼阿波利斯悲惨死亡后,抗议活动达到了高潮(希望如此)。AAi世界播


The fashionable explanation for what happened to Brown, Floyd and others—such as Freddie Gray in 2015 and Philando Castile in 2016—is so-called systemic racism. The activist left and the mainstream media insist that law enforcement targeted these men because they were black—and that if they weren’t black, they would still be alive. The truth is more complicated and less politically correct, and it’s the subject of an engrossing new documentary that is scheduled to premiere Oct. 16. AAi世界播

对布朗、弗洛伊德和其他人-比如2015年的弗雷迪·格雷(Freddie Gray)和2016年的菲兰多·卡斯蒂尔(Philando Castile)-发生的事情,流行的解释是所谓的系统性种族主义。这位左翼活动家和主流媒体坚持认为,执法部门之所以针对这些人,是因为他们是黑人-如果他们不是黑人,他们还会活着。真相更加复杂,政治上也不那么正确,这是定于10月16日首映的一部引人入胜的新纪录片的主题。AAi世界播

The film, titled “What Killed Michael Brown?,” is written and narrated by the noted race scholar Shelby Steele and directed by his son, Eli Steele. Readers of these pages probably know the elder Mr. Steele through his best-selling books and occasional Journal op-eds. But earlier in his career, Mr. Steele also won acclaim for his work in television. In 1990 he co-wrote and produced “Seven Days in Bensonhurst,” an Emmy-winning documentary about Yusef Hawkins, the black teenager from Brooklyn who was fatally shot in 1989 after he and some friends were attacked by a white mob.

这部名为“是什么杀死了迈克尔·布朗?”的电影由著名种族学者谢尔比·斯蒂尔编剧和解说,由他的儿子伊莱·斯蒂尔执导。这些版面的读者可能是通过老斯蒂尔先生的畅销书和偶尔的“华尔街日报”专栏认识他的。但在他职业生涯的早期,斯蒂尔先生也因他在电视上的工作而赢得赞誉。1990年,他与人合写并制作了“本森赫斯特七天”(Seven Days In Bensonhurst),这是一部获得艾美奖的纪录片,讲述的是布鲁克林黑人少年尤塞夫·霍金斯(Yusef Hawkins)的故事。1989年,在他和一些朋友遭到白人暴徒袭击后,霍金斯被枪杀。AAi世界播


In an interview this week, Mr. Steele, who is based at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, explained the significance of Brown’s death and what it tells us about race relations today. “Michael Brown represented, even more so than Trayvon Martin, Freddie Gray and others, the distortion of truth, of reality,” he said. Mr. Steele added that when it comes to racial controversies, liberals have developed what he calls a “poetic truth,” which may be at complete odds with objective truth but nevertheless helps them advance a desirable narrative. In the case of Michael Brown, reality was turned on its head. AAi世界播

在本周的一次采访中,斯坦福大学胡佛研究所的斯蒂尔先生解释了布朗之死的重要意义,以及它告诉我们今天关于种族关系的事情。他说:“迈克尔·布朗比特雷沃恩·马丁、弗雷迪·格雷和其他人更能代表真相和现实的扭曲。”斯蒂尔补充说,当谈到种族争议时,自由派形成了他所说的“诗意真理”,这可能与客观事实完全不一致,但仍有助于他们提出令人满意的叙述。在迈克尔·布朗的案例中,现实发生了翻天覆地的变化。AAi世界播


“It was almost absolute,” Mr. Steele said. “The language—he was ‘executed,’ he was ‘assassinated,’ ‘hands up, don’t shoot’—it was a stunning example of poetic truth, of the lies that a society can entertain in pursuit of power.” Despite ample forensic evidence, the grand-jury reports and the multiple Justice Department investigations clearing the police officer of any wrongdoing, “there are blacks today, right now in Ferguson, as I point out in the film, who still truly believe that Michael Brown was killed out of racial animus,” he said. “In a microcosm, that’s where race relations are today. The truth has no chance. It’s smothered by the politics of victimization.” AAi世界播

“这几乎是绝对的,”斯蒂尔说。“他的语言--他被‘处决’,他被‘暗杀’,‘举起手来,不要开枪’--这是一个令人震惊的诗意真理的例子,也是一个社会在追逐权力时可以容忍的谎言。”他说,尽管有充足的法医证据,大陪审团的报告,以及司法部的多次调查,证明这名警官没有任何不当行为,但“就像我在电影中指出的那样,今天在弗格森有一些黑人,他们仍然真的相信迈克尔·布朗(Michael Brown)是因为种族敌意而被杀的。”“从一个缩影来看,这就是今天种族关系所处的位置。真相是没有机会的。它被受害的政治扼杀了。“。AAi世界播


Yet Mr. Steele sees a better future, and the interviews highlighted in “What Killed Michael Brown?” help to explain his optimism. One of the film’s strong suits is showcasing the words and deeds of everyday community leaders in places like Ferguson, St. Louis and Chicago. These people are far more focused on black self-development than on badgering whites or blaming society for problems in poor black communities. They understand and accept objective truth but mostly toil in obscurity while liberal billionaires cut million-dollar checks to subsidize Black Lives Matter activism and antiracism gibberish from “woke” academics. AAi世界播

然而斯蒂尔先生看到了更美好的未来,采访在“是什么杀死了迈克尔·布朗?”有助于解释他的乐观情绪。这部电影的强项之一是展示了弗格森、圣路易斯和芝加哥等地日常社区领袖的言行。这些人更关注黑人的自我发展,而不是纠缠白人或将贫困黑人社区的问题归咎于社会。他们理解并接受客观事实,但大多在默默无闻中辛勤劳作,而自由派亿万富翁则削减数百万美元的支票,以补贴“黑人生命也是命”(Black Lives Matter)激进主义和来自“觉醒”学者的反种族主义胡言乱语。AAi世界播


“It’s easy to say, ‘The white man, the white man,’ and point the finger,” says a pastor in the film whose church is located in one of Chicago’s most violent neighborhoods. “In reality, we have to take a very close look at ourselves.” His focus is on “the transformation of the person. And we’re telling them, hey, educationally, you gotta get it together. Economically, you gotta get it together. Family and spiritually, you gotta get it together. And you have to take responsibility.” AAi世界播

“很容易说,‘白人,白人’,然后指指点点,”影片中的一位牧师说,他的教堂位于芝加哥最暴力的社区之一。“在现实中,我们必须非常仔细地审视自己.”他的关注点是“人的转变”。我们告诉他们,嘿,从教育上讲,你必须振作起来。从经济上讲,你必须振作起来。无论是家庭还是精神上,你都要振作起来。你必须承担责任。“。AAi世界播


The president of the St. Louis NAACP chapter told Mr. Steele there was no evidence that the Ferguson protests had done anything to help the black people who live there. Property values have fallen, crime has increased, and schools continue to underperform. “Let’s be clear. The progressive agenda is not the black agenda,” he says. “The people in that community are no better off than they were prior to the death of that young black child. They’re no better off, and everybody knows it.” AAi世界播

全国有色人种协进会圣路易斯分会的主席告诉斯蒂尔先生,没有证据表明弗格森的抗议活动对生活在那里的黑人有任何帮助。房地产价格下跌,犯罪率上升,学校继续表现不佳。“让我们把话说清楚。进步议程不是黑色议程,“他说。“那个社区的人们并没有比那个年轻的黑人孩子死前过得更好。他们的情况并没有好到哪里去,这一点大家都知道。“AAi世界播


Amazon, which was scheduled to stream the movie, is now having second thoughts and has placed it under “content review.” Eli Steele, the director, told me that he will resort to other streaming platforms if he has to and is referring people to the film’s website, WhatKilledMichaelBrown.com, for more details on how to view it. The progressive agenda may not be the black agenda, but it is the media’s agenda. Sadly, speaking plain truths about racial inequality in America today remains controversial. AAi世界播

亚马逊原计划对这部电影进行流媒体播放,但现在正在重新考虑,并将其置于“内容审查”之下。导演伊莱·斯蒂尔(Eli Steele)告诉我,如果有必要,他会求助于其他流媒体平台,并正在让人们访问这部电影的网站WhatKilledMichaelBrown.com,了解如何观看它的更多细节。进步议程可能不是黑色议程,但它是媒体的议程。可悲的是,就当今美国的种族不平等问题直言不讳地说出真相仍然存在争议。AAi世界播
