    Everyone should watch E;R's analysis of this. Really goes into depth on how this is a movie that valued messaging over its story, and suffered for it.

          And another thing Jeremiah 11:11 is in reference to the Hebrews being captured and brought into slavery for following other god aka as white Jesus no god didn’t deliver us from slavery but we are not forsake even in our sins we can repent and turn the way we should have been in the first place. It cost too much not to service the blk god I repent from following white Jesus

            O’Neil reminds me of and alien from men in blk! I asked him was he an Extraterrestrial. He may just be, or a clone, or possibly a shapeshifter!

                Your better judgement should have told you that this wrong but for the love of money you will go to hell quick playing with me!! Side eyeing noprah because I know this stemmed from her and her book followed a path made clear! Really after the mercy I should you not even considering your character! I had nothing but tried to help with the much wisdom I got! I never met anybody that could be potentially treacherous to kill me after I help them so I couldn’t call it what it was! Now that it was revealed through trial and error I know what a treacherous person is now! Thanks for showing me what a false idol was , following other god’s were and a true definition of treacherous! I had no clear definition of what error I could be in so how can I be punished by god for me not knowing evil and identifying it! I repent to god because I always wanted to right with god even in my sin I knew I had to shake it off! The lotus flower is what I think about when I feel that I cannot be forgiven! I can be forgiven and I can be restored but I will have fight for it! Sometimes I think death is better than life! No costume on the other side we are what we really are! No more troubles from these wicked mfers in this world! Plus even in the midst of y’all shanagins grace as been granted not for the stake of the wicked but for the righteous that are here!!

                  You cowards never stand a chance! I don’t fuck with Lupita either after this bs because she had the nerve to act this shit out after all that success they had in blk panther movie! The audacity for you to murder a blk woman on camera! You know what the fuck that means treacherous tenacity for a few dollars! That’s her last movie I am watching.

                        Psalms 37: 12 Turn from evil and do good; then you will dwell in the land forever. the righteous will inherit the land and dwell in it forever. The mouth of the righteous man utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks what is just. The law of his God is in his heart; his feet do not slip.The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth, But my Lord just laughs at them because he knows that their day is coming.

                                    I tell you what it was about they call themselves having their clone O’Neil O’Hara catch a ride with me and he stabs me to death from the back while I am driving! They used Jeremiah 11:11 to justify why they did this too me but because I know shit he is luckingI didn’t fuck him up first! Jordan peele will not have me at another movie of his for this bs! What god is going to do to the false idols that mislead us Israelites! Plaques and more plaques on your heads for trying it!!

                                          I’m mexican, so please be kind with my question, but what is “black culture”? Or for that matter “white culture”?

                                          I thought I understood “american culture”

                                            TomMe I think I get it, there’s a lot of diversity here, people from the north are radically different from people of the south, but we’re both Mexicans, like segregated blacks are still Americans.

                                            Hopefully in a good sense and with good values

                                            "Black culture" is the culture of urban blacks who segregate themselves from the rest of society. This includes separate vernacular and values. Think of it like how immigrants of any nationality tend to live in the same neighborhoods as other immigrants, and retain parts of their home country's culture, but with people whose families have lived in the US for hundreds of years

                                          I reject the Marxist idea that moving up in society requires pushing others down, It’s a toxic message that breeds resentment and inadequacy.

                                                          This movie really fucks with the idea of right and wrong. Yes, Red shouldn’t have gone on a murdering spree but she had her entire life and opportunity ripped away from her by “Adelaide”. Also, “Adelaide”s children are still hers, even if she wasn’t the original Adelaide. It makes you question who’s the villain and who are we supposed to be rooting for

Too many things do not bear scrutiny - where do the tethered get their food? Raw rabbit would not be adequate and most would probably die of malnutrition, and not run quicker than the norms. Children of tethered would not look identical to children of the 'normals', they would be more like siblings. Where do they get the uniforms, the scissors (which look pretty expensive)? Why do the tethered know where to find the norms - is it just from the 'connection'? How do they predict where they will be? etc etc. I did enjoy the movie (having just watched it on a plane), but reading all the analyses is actually putting me off watching it again.

I remember the scene when the game booth guy gives her dad the thriller shirt to give to her, and then the tethered versions do the same thing underground. And I'm pretty sure the clone version also hands the shirt to the cloned dad. So where did they get the shirt from down there? When they meet in the house of mirrors, she's wearing the same shirt. Is it maybe just a messed up memory? Like maybe she's remembering her clone wearing the shirt because she forgot that they switched. It's the only part of the movie that's really bothering me. lol

                                                                                        I'm not sure how intentional this was (who am I kidding, successful directors are smart; auteurs like Peele know what's all of what's going on in their films) but, I think you could throw a little bit socialist imagery into the corkboard of collective interpretation of "Us." I mean, people adorned in not just red, but also the exact same minimalist garments. Not to mention, this same group conducts a violent overthrow of an oppressive, late-capitalist system after which they literally become a monolithic socio-cultural entity. Maybe I'm just seeing something where there is nothing, but you have to give Peele credit for making a movie that resists any simple message, and indeed suggests a myriad of decodings, while still being as overt as "We are Americans."

                                                                                        ALSO, I can't think of many other films I've seen that leave me with such existential dread, albeit about secret basement people murdering me for not appreciating my privilege.

Multilinguals, speakers of more than one language, sometimes use elements of multiple languages when conversing with each other." This can also include nonverbals, including body language or knowing how to navigate between cultures. People often also code switch with change in emotionality, not just situation. Bilingual speakers might also code switchwith each other in order to express ideas that can't be expressed as well in one language versus another. In this way, many minority communities have to learn how to code switch from the minority speak to the majority speak which may include more than just race, but things like social class, etc.

Example, the beach scene. Despite the fact they're at a warm sunny beach with what I would assume is full of middle and upper-class citizens, it seems empty and muted.
