Counter-Racist Movie Review - Matrix Reloaded

In this segment of Matrix Reloaded, the second install of the Matrix Trilogy, Neo has a conversation with Smith, formerly Agent Smith. In this segment of Matrix Reloaded Neo learns the value of purpose and how it is related to the why (reason)...in terms of why you should perform any act at all. Everything boils down to saying and doing. Everything else is a label for one of those two things. Everything that is said and/or everything that is done by any individual is directly tied to that person's purpose for existing. According to counter-racist codification there is no person that is unemployed. Every person on this planet is either employed in the production of justice or they are employed in the production of injustice. Your purpose will be revealed in what you say and/or do. Now it is time for Neo to understand that.

You can't just sit around on the sidelines waiting for someone to tell you what to do because while you are waiting for someone to tell you what you should be doing you are not employed in the production of justice. Smith reveals that his purpose is to obtain everything and in the process of doing so he has to make sure he obtains Neo...by giving Neo his purpose. Everything means everything. As Smith reveals..."I am here to take from you what you tried to take from us...purpose". Smith is attempting to eliminate Neo's purpose by giving Neo his purpose. What you see graphically ("Smith copying himself to other people") is Smith giving other people his purpose.

The racists (white supremacists) do this all the time with non-white people. Non-white people on this planet have only one solution to the practice of racism (white supremacy), and that solution is to produce a SYSTEM of justice, which completely eliminates racism (white supremacy), when non-white people do not focus on producing justice...everything else non-white people say and/or do has one purpose and one purpose only...to help maintain, expand, and/or refine the purpose of the white supremacists (racists)...and when this happens the purpose of the white supremacists (racists) becomes the purpose of the people the white supremacists (racists) classify as non-white. The non-white people must use words to reveal truth in such a manner that justice and correctness is promoted in order to not have the same purpose as the white supremacists (racists).

The dialog begins:

Mr. Anderson. Did you get my package?
Neo: Yeah.
Smith: Good. Surprised to see me?
Neo: No.
Smith: Then you're aware of it?
Neo: Of what?
Smith: Our connection. I don't fully understand how it happened perhaps some part of you imprinted on to me, something overwritten or copied. It is at this point is irrelevant. What matters is that whatever happened...happened for a reason.
Neo: And what reason is that?
Smith: I killed you, Mr. Anderson. I watched you die... with a certain satisfaction, I might add. And then something happened. something that I knew was impossible, but it happened anyway. You destroyed me, Mr. Anderson. Afterward, I knew the rules, I understood what I was supposed to do, but I didn't. I couldn't. I was compelled to stay, compelled to disobey. And now, here I stand because of you, Mr. Anderson. Because of you, I'm no longer an Agent of this system. Because of you, I've changed. I'm unplugged. A new man, so to speak. Like you, apparently, free.
Neo: Congratulations.
Smith: Thank you. But, as you well know, appearances can be deceiving, which brings me back to the reason why we're here. We're not here because we're free. We're here because we're not free. There is no escaping reason; no denying purpose. Because as we both know, without purpose, we would not exist.
[Several Smith Clones walk in]
Smith Clone 1: It is purpose that created us.
Smith Clone 2: Purpose that connects us.
Smith Clone 3: Purpose that pulls us.
Smith Clone 4: That guides us.
Smith Clone 5: That drives us.
Smith Clone 6: It is purpose that defines us.
Smith Clone 7: Purpose that binds us.
Smith: We are here because of you, Mr Anderson. We're here to take from you what you tried to take from us.
[Attempts to copy himself into Neo]
Smith: Purpose.

Neo is essentially being told that Smith is going to give Neo his purpose. Once this is done everything Neo does will be to maintain, expand, and/or refine Smith's purpose.

This is the purpose of most non-white people...to help the white supremacists (racists) maintain the SYSTEM of white supremacy (racism). The non-white person, if interested in producing a SYSTEM of justice, must begin to replace white supremacy (racism) with justice by producing justice. Non-white people are given the language and programmed with what to do and how to do it from birth so that they can fit well within the plan of the white supremacists (racists) plan to control all of the non-white people.

Smith's purpose used to be the same as the Architect's purpose but we will discuss that later. The only relevant issue now is that Smith has his own purpose and attempts to make Neo's purpose his by "cloning" him, which by the way is symbolic for having Neo think, speak, and act just like him. Many non-white people have been cloned as such under the SYSTEM of white supremacy (racism) but they are "intermediaries"...in other words they don't practice white supremacy (racism) they are given privileges by the white supremacists (racists)...privileges more than other non-white people for the purpose of causing conflict between the non-white people. It is like studying rats in a cage and you give some rats more food than others you will be able to discern when the fight will break out.

Non-white people who have been given more privileges under the SYSTEM of white supremacy (racism) than other non-white people are still victims of white supremacy (racism). All non-white people cooperate with the racists (white supremacists) in some form or fashion...the way this SYSTEM of injustice (racism/white supremacy) is setup we don't have a choice. The objective is to minimize your cooperation by maximizing the promotion of a SYSTEM of justice...until you no longer have to cooperate with the racists (white supremacists)..

What is purpose? It is a word...a way of saying why I am meant to do what I am meant to do and what and how I am meant to do. (ala Rama-Kandra)

The next segment in this series is Neo's conversation with the Merovingian where Neo learns the painful lesson that unless you understand why you are doing something you are POWERLESS...POWERLESS to understand how to do it...and therefore have to wait on the people who do understand why you are doing something to tell you how to do. If it is the racists (white supremacists) who understand why you are doing something and you don't, and you have to go to them for how to do it, in terms of race the effect is that you will be confused...forever.
