    Whether or not you agree with WikiLeaks’ decision to republish (and organize, and itemize) the hacked Sony documents that were allegedly (but probably not) pilfered by a fraternity of hackers on the orders of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un over his portrayal as a margarita and Katy Perry-loving psycho who gets his face burned off in The Interview, they’re floating about in the ether once more.

    And the biggest reveal from the re-up has been the news that Ben Affleck, the Oscar-winning filmmaker behind Argo and upcoming baritone-voiced Batman in next year’s Batman vs. Superman, pressured esteemed Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. to nix a bit on his PBS celebrity ancestry programFinding Your Roots about one of his slave-owning ancestors.

    In the Sony documents, Gates sent an email to Sony CEO/pal Michael Lynton. “[C]onfidentially, for the first time, one of our guests has asked us to edit out something about one of his ancestors—the fact that he owned slaves,” Gates wrote to Lynton. “We’ve never had anyone ever try to censor or edit what we found. He’s a megastar. What do we do?” He later referred to the subject as “Batman.”


    Your third great-grandfather owned 25 slaves. He was a slave owner.
    These holdings put Benjamin Cole among the southern elite. Only about 10 percent of all slave holders owned 20 slaves or more.

    I didn't care about Affleck one way or the other. But between this and his pouty 5 year old tantrum on Bill Maher, I'm completely soured on him.

    I hope he drowns in his own white guilt.

    I do. My great great great grandfather fought a war to free Ben's great great great grandfather's slaves.

    Fuck you Ben, I don't have to lie about my family.

    He does.

    It's not the crime, it's the coverup that gets you.

    Why go to all this trouble to hide some fact that really has nothing to do with you. It's not like he owned slaves himself:oldspazz:

    Apparently you do if you still think the north went to war over slavery. Do your homework before you start spouting off about what your great great great granddaddy did. Men were sent to die for money and nothing else. If the south were allowed to leave the union, it would have been financial ruin for the north. Lincoln didn't give two shits about slaves.

    I would cover it up too if some dumbasses 150 years after the fact thought it somehow had anything at ALL to do with me. The fuck is wrong with people?
