A black man from Iowa kidnapped and forced a white woman to watch a 9-hour Roots marathon to help her better “understand her racism,” under the threat of murder and dismemberment.

Robert Lee Noye, 52, after kidnapping his victim, forced her to “remain seated” during the forced binge-watching of the show.

When the female victim tried to move, Noye reportedly said “he would kill her and spread her body parts across Interstate 380 on the way to Chicago,” according to Disrn.

The criminal complaint lodged against Noye found that the point of the quasi-Clockwork-Orange scene was “so she could better understand her racism.”

Roots, according to The Gazette, is a “a nine-hour miniseries that chronicles author Alex Haley’s family line from the capture and enslavement of his ancestor Kunta Kinte to the liberation of Kinte’s descendants.”

Noye, who resides in Cedar Rapids, is facing charges of “first-degree harassment and false imprisonment.”

Affluent white female liberals–known online by the popular acronym AWFL; almost spelling “awful”–were reported to have forked out around $2,500 on dinner nights hosted by women of color to demystify, learn about, and tackle their inherent racism.

National File reported:

Liberal white women are paying thousands of dollars for the privilege of being lectured by two minority women on how racist they are.

“Race to Dinner” is a scheme concocted by Regina Jackson, a black woman, and Saira Rao, an Indian American woman, where they spend an evening lecturing liberal white women on how not to be racist over dinner. On their website, they describe their mission as simple, which is to “reveal the naked truth about RACISM in America and UNLEASH YOUR POWER as white women to dismantle it”:

Look at yourself in the mirror and acknowledge that, as a white person in America, you are an active participant in upholding white supremacy. This isn’t personal… This is systemic… Black and brown women are also part of the system. The truth is, we are on opposing sides: BIPOC are on the receiving end of white supremacy… Until and unless white women are willing to disrupt white supremacy, we will never see change. White women: you have the power to disrupt and dismantle the hate. We are talking about your complicity in upholding white supremacy and keeping Black and brown women down. Our goal is to reveal to you what BIPOC have always seen: your white privilege, your power, your control and your complicity in all of the above. You are an integral part of this system. Are you willing to use this power to dismantle the hate rather than to uphold it?

Now, instead of paying exorbitant entry fees to deconstruct systemic white racism, it is provided in 9-hour doses.
