Glad for repentance, but whole video was disturbing. Way it portrayed @drjamesmerritt should be repented of too. Video had @tomascol talk about hegemony spliced against Merritt saying we should listen to black voices. Portrayed affirmation of white dominance, intentional or not.
2) What is laid out in trailer from 0:08 - 1:18 is straightforward. @tomascol is upset b/c people in “the hegemony” - context clearly is white Christians - are being told by people like @drjamesmerritt to listen to leaders like @dhati, black Christian. founders.org/cinedoc/
3) “hegemony” = “leadership or dominance, especially by one country or social group over others.” The way trailer sets up the contrast of the words of @tomascol vs. @drjamesmerritt, it looks like Ascol is upset b/c white dominant ldrshp is asked to humble/listen to black voices.
4) Is that what @tomascol really believes? I’d like to extend charity & assume he didn’t mean specific idea of hegemony = “white ldrshp” when he spoke, but the terrible trailer definitely painted that picture via contrast w/ @drjamesmerritt words. Ascol should explain/repent.
5) The way the trailer contrasts Ascol’s frustration with calls for hegemony to stand down w/ Merritt’s call to listen to black leaders is a total disaster - specifically from :50
- 1:18 in the trailer. Whatever was meant there, the trailer is horrid. founders.org/cinedoc/
