I don't think of it as positive.
I just don't feel the same way about it when it black person says it compared to when a white person says it.

I don't understand ppl who thinks its the same thing

I've never gotten a concrete explanation as to how it's the same thing. That's more of that YT spinning.

considering the time period....can there really be a happy ending?
 
 
but I think that Gregory was just talking about the Visual.  Do we have movie's where a black man and black woman are really riding off into the sunset?

that's what i meant.  from the onset i never viewed it as a win/lose battle like most Westerns and that's the one thing i hope audiences were considering while rooting for Jamie/Schultz/Broomhilda.
