Default Mother of the Matrix - A Black Woman

I don't know if this has been posted already but I was so happy to find out that this woman will get justice and a lotta money. They stole her work and claimed it as their own. I wonder if it was because she was a BLACK WOMAN ?


"Mother of the Matrix" Victorious

Monday, October 4th 2004 ended a six-year dispute involving Sophia Stewart, the Wachowski Brothers, Joel Silver and Warner Brothers. Stewart's allegations, involving copyright infringement and racketeering, were received and acknowledged by the Central District of California, Judge Margaret Morrow residing.

Stewart, a New Yorker who has resided in Salt Lake City for the past five years, will recover damages from the films, The Matrix I, II and III, as well as The Terminator and its sequels. She will soon receive one of the biggest payoffs in the history of Hollywood, as the gross receipts of both films and their sequels total over 2.5 billion dollars.

Stewart filed her case in 1999, after viewing the Matrix, which she felt had been based on her manuscript, "The Third Eye," copyrighted in 1981. In the mid-eighties Stewart had submitted her manuscript to an ad placed by the Wachowski Brothers, requesting new sci-fi works.

According to court documentation, an FBI investigation discovered that more than thirty minutes had been edited from the original film, in attempt to avoid penalties for copyright infringement. The investigation also stated that "credible witnesses employed at Warner Brothers came forward, claiming that the executives and lawyers had full knowledge that the work in question did not belong to the Wachowski Brothers." These witnesses claimed to have seen Stewart's original work and that it had been "often used during preparation of the motion pictures."
The defendants tried, on several occasions, to have Stewart's case dismissed, without success.

Stewart has confronted skepticism on all sides, much of which comes from Matrix fans, who are strangely loyal to the Wachowski Brothers. One on-line forum, entitled Matrix Explained has an entire section devoted to Stewart. Some who have researched her history and writings are open to her story. Others are suspicious and mocking. "It doesn't bother me," said Stewart in a phone interview last week, "I always knew what was true." Continued...

True Pale Kris, but race is important in this case because it had a lot to do with how she wrote her stories.

And, all of the emphasis that she put on race was taken out of those stories...I don't think that was right.

Race is an important issue to me. Besides, it is what interests me the most.

Peace

How could it be a hoax if she won her case in court?

What does that mean Jasper?

This is general talk...don't have to make it about her race just that it was an important fact.

Nah, I'm just a chattyass drunkaholic. I think I was trying to say some people are thinking all day about being a black/white/other race person instead of seeing it more general and seeing theirselfs as just human. I don't know if that makes any sense, so it probably doesn't.

Wow that's a pretty ignorant statement. Ever heard of Mumia Abdul Jamar or Rubin "Hurricane" Carter? Those are the two most famous cases.

Everything bad that ever happens to a black person is because they're black, I thought this was well established?
Ditto women.

I'm a white male so nothing bad ever happens to me.
