This is a movie everyone should see. It's great.

A friend told me today of taking her kids to see it. Her 10-year old was aghast. "Do you mean people really acted like that toward black people? REALLY?" Then he went home and called his friend who is black and apologized to him.

This film should never have been made.

Why, Wayne? Because it shows the kind of ugly hatred that was much too common in America's past? Our nation's history is not the bright and shining place held dear in the imaginations of some people.

If we are to learn from our past we must be willing to remember it as it really was.

Yeah, Wayno, if you're going to throw that out there at least provide a little rationale.
