the movie is insanely racist and white America ate it up so happily
The narrative was quite racist. D.W.Griffith, the greatest director of his era & one of the founders of United Artists, was completely clueless about just how racist it was. Par for the course at the time. The movie was technically remarkable for its time, but pretty unwatchable now.
I feel so bad for the black men they have posing as "enemies" here.
Much easier to make movies that controversial in those days … and not to care about horses getting maimed & killed in the battle-scenes … as I suspect many of those were.
