    I dislike calling his name also. Sorry Busta & Spike but I'm using this agent orange going forward. Don't worry media is going to eat crow for the next year. People are going to show them we fight for what we love. I still love AAmerica but she has a whore in the white house. Con artist to the max ... conning the crap out of a certain segment of this country.

    As a black person im still confused as too what I thought about the movie. It wasn’t enjoyable in any form. However I don’t think that it was intended to be. But I still wasn’t sure as to what I was suppose to get from it. It almost glamorized the kkk.

    Ex-husband's nephew was black and traveled with his white girlfriend to her equally white grandpa's home for an extended visit. He and that grandpa, a raging racist by all accounts, became fast friends. Grandpa was blind. No one told him that Jason was black. He thought the whole time that Jason had hung the Moon. My favorite example of the absurdity of racism. Would that it was only absurd. It is also dangerous. Vote, and vote blue, no matter who. And while you still can.
