PLANET OF THE APES
There is an extreme difference between creativeness in any art form and the appearance of some form of debasement. Whenever we are using the media in its many forms to express some mannequin of characterization about any group of people whom has the historical wounds of slavery and holocaust, it is always wise to self evaluate our intentions behind our art. In most of these films it would be easy for anyone to point out the racial bigotry and racism that is supplanted within the theme and plot of many of these movies. Historians can validate my assertions when I say that racism in America has lead to the invention of many such bywords, like the term “monkey”, an historic allegation which supposedly represented the black race as an deformed and defamed people, thereby exemplifying a racist derogatory standard and long standing insult. Jessie Owens the famous sprinter was referred to as a “black monkey' by Hitler, this was one among many such insults traditionally used against people of color in America and around the world. We here in America have become so complacent when it comes to color and race issues, that terms like the N word and “Nappy headed holes” are sort out by society as something that should be looked upon as a dead issue, many say that blacks should “get over it” (to get over slavery and the negative terminologies used against blacks) once and for all, but the longevity of these wounds has transcended time and space into the very psyche of the ill nurtured people of oppression. These ills have been secretly nurtured by the media in many creative ways, it is time to publicly notify people of the grand conspiratorial agenda to psychologically defame the oppressed through the utilization of the arts and the entertainment field.
PLANET OF THE APES
Without question the artistry of the film was magnificent and unapproachable in its presentation, as an cinema recreation no other film has ever created the longevity of interest held by this film. Planet of the Apes apparently made a lot of money in the box office and is still pulling in the dough but it has never been publicly examined in depth. This film (Planet of the Apes) was created in book form by Pierre Boulle, Genre originally in French, was written in 1963 in English as a novel. Subsequently there appeared two film versions of Planet of the Apes: Franklin J. Schaffner directed the 1968 film, starring Charlton Heston and Roddy McDowall, and Tim Burton directed the 2001 version, starring Mark Wahlberg, Tim Roth, and Helena Bonham Carter.
Calculating the time frame in which this movie was established (1968), it was at a time and made in a country where racism was the norm, (although racism was calming down a little). Although the ratings of the film categorically topped the charts of the movie industry we (people of color) have suspicions of its underline intent. In the newer (2001) version of Planet of the Apes the monkeys are seen playing basketball (as oppose to playing Ice Hockey) which is another obscure but racist inference to black youngsters who generally put their hopes and dreams into becoming professional basket ball players.

Question? How is this film considered by the Library of Congress to be historically, Culturally or aesthetically significant? Well if the Library of Congress views this movie as having historical and cultural importance or highly significant, an investigation of their contentions is genuinely valuable data. .Most of the general public views this movie as simply an artifact of overt entertainment and not as a historical or cultural land mark. When one thinks of America it is not average to consider the movie “the Planet Of the Apes” as a major part of the culture, neither can anyone see links to American history considering the entertainment position of the film. Conversely our investigative evaluation of the film proves to be more than we bargained for, as we uncover racism which is culturally based, also it shares some biblical significance (historically based) as the third world's war finally leads to the devastation of the super powers around the world; “and the first shall be last and the last shall be first”. In the premier society and kingdom the known free world, the elite nation will lose its dominance through a fault of their own doing, as they initiate the third worlds war. We are allowed to see this conclusion at the end of the original 1968 film, starring Charlton Heston, as he comes upon the destroyed “Statute of Liberty” on the beach and realizes that he was not on another distant planet but on earth in the future, and that the European governments actually used the “Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles” to wage the final third worlds war.
It appears that the fundamental focus of the film industry is to promote political and social science, to manipulate the focus and the perceptions of the masses. If a picture is worth a thousand words, therefore a movie is worth a million paragraphs. Through the Pegasus (imaginary creatures and concepts) of the movie entertainment industry the media is able to teach the subliminal mind, to program the mind of billions of people all over the world at one time. As time marched forward the art of racism has been waged on many levels and in a more serene manner, comfortably secluded behind the curtains of entertainment. The desire to foster the manufacture of racism in our society is constructed by the people in power who wish to maintained a thriving hostility between the races so that no unity among the nations people will ever hinder them from controlling all people. As long as we are at war with one another we will be too occupied to see what the powers that be are really up to.
The movie's prognostication about the future of America is not an optimistic omen but rather it leaves little doubt to its future pending day of reckoning.
Although we can easily recognize the similarities in most films that are dedicated to the idealogical dooms day expectancy we also notice some scenes in these various films relegated to racism. Because of the host of films that match this pattern of conception it is apparent that filmmakers are advocating more than mere entertainment but a real possible future like inside trading. According to the prophecies written in the bible “the last shall be first and the first shall be last” we have to examine the reality of this statement. Who is the last people on earth and who is the first? Among all the people of the earth and out of all classes or categories of people blacks are said to be the lowest class of people, while whites are considered to be at the top, for the most part running the world. Blacks were slaves, while whites were slave masters, the understanding of this biblical verse is solidified in this one notion of reality.
Indoctrination process of slavery didn't begin with the slaves, it began with the potential slave masters, who were trained by various psychological means to believe that black slavery was a naturalized phenomenon designed by the creator. After being mentally disciplined and well intoxicated by the toxicological pathology of black enslavement, white people were able to suppress their own consciousness, and in most cases completely remove their emotional feelings and ethical morals, enabling them to carry out some of the most gruesome crimes against humanity ever conceived against another human being.
What the movie shows us is that apocalyptic prophecy written in the old testament that says that the world will be burned by fire rather than flooded, (that global fire is started by the “Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles and the final world's war) and that the righteous will inherent the earth. In this case the righteous are grafted in as monkeys, effectively defaming the righteous people who ever they are. So it shows clearly that the people in power don't want the righteous people of God to take over the earth, and by mutilating their physical appearances on film, shows that they harbor a certain amount of hatred against the righteous. The film effectively promotes the apes as being made over into more intellectual beings by the humans who are generally white and brought by them to the crescendo of their own civilization. So the people in power even assume the credit for the black apes becoming successful in achieving their own intelligence enough to inherent the earth, thus maintaining the God head status or superiority over the apes (black slaves). In the new film planet of the apes the main actor (Tim Burton ) says that back on earth monkeys lived in cages and did whatever we say, ( essentially they were slaves to the humans). An ape became angry when he (Tim Burton ) referenced the ape people as monkeys claiming that monkeys are on the lower latter of the evolutionary scale, so as we can see the humans always had a knack of insulting the natives, in this case the apes is the representation of the Black nation, the actual slaves that were in cages and did what the slave masters told them. One of the most common comments ever lodged against blacks was; why don't you go back to Africa, and swing on some trees? Chuck a few spears. They have always envisioned black people as monkeys with tails, as inhuman, as animals made for the servitude of the white race, now this derogatory vision is made public, celebrated without any outcry of racism.
If the Library of Congress sees the movie as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" it is because the connections to American culture, its history and the artistic significance to its allegations is closely symbolic to the historical theme of black enslavement and the biblical prophecies of their eventual ruler-ship on earth. Dooms day is a catchy theme, it is shown in thousands of movies with great expectation and anticipation as if they are trying to figure out an Rubicons cube device, to unmask the puzzle and perhaps to change that possible destiny.
The movie has been recently updated (called “Rise of the Planet Of the Apes”) design to include the modern technological gadgets along with its theme.

Now consider how important this particular film is to the American culture. Why so many remakes of the film?
Here is what we know about the two cultures which is in relationship and of great significance to the film “the Planet of the Apes”. The apes are stronger than the Humans, the humans have technology at their disposal which makes them better killers and hunters, many of the apes are confused as to their loyalties, whether to be loyal to the humans or loyal to the survival of their own ape like people. The humans are united in their determinations to survive while the apes are fragmented in their beliefs. We find the female Ape assisting the humans while the male ape boyishly follows behind her lead. The male ape dies in service to the female ape and the female ape remains in love with the white human male. This choreograph is the rendition of black history from slavery to the present day where we find these conditions available for review. The black race is physically stronger than the white race, we note this phenomenon in any sports arena which is undertaken between both races (boxing, basket ball, running, jumping etc). While the black race has physical powers surpassing that of the average white person, the white race has the blessings of technological superiority. The aftermath of slavery and racism caused many of the mental illnesses that we see embedded in the black race, one such sickness is color sickness, and we find blacks who are confused as to their loyalties or their dedications to survival for themselves and their own people, as oppose to that of the white race. Many of them (black people) dyed their hair blond, bleach their skin as white as possible, and generally mimic the white race, most of this reaction is as a refined symptom to racism and color sickness. While black men are being killed for various reasons, hatred, racism, even self hared they kill themselves, the black woman appears to be celebrating her long sort out liberation from her own black men, she is seen worshiping her oppressors rather than saving her men from total disadvantages and destruction. We can comprehend this self destruction in the black race when we see black women claiming themselves to be the back bone of the black nation, while their sons can't read or write, while the majority of the black male population is being destroyed she is assisting the oppressors by publicly demeaning the whole of black manhood. Saying that there are no good black men, that black men don't care for their own children, that most black men are in jail, on drugs, abusers and so forth. This was over forty years of the black woman's propaganda aim at the black man, while her sons listened to her rhetoric at home she further stifled his own potential manhood.
