How many shootings will there be at this "event"?
Why can't there be a Twin Cities White film festival?

First of all having a film festival that excludes all other groups is inherently racist. Imagine the cries if there was a white film festival. We need to stop seperating ourselves by the color of our skin into sub groups. We will never have racial harmony until we all consider ourselves one big (albeit disfunctional) American family.

There is. It is the Minneapolis/St Paul International Film Festival.

Is the Jewish Film Festival racist?

If you're talking about the religion no. It would be no different than a Muslim or Christian film festival.

So then why can't there be a black film fest? You don't have to be black to attend. It would be the same as having a film fest restricted to one genre, wouldn't it?

Are you some kind of pervert too? You better not be wizzing in public. "Ease on down the road" is a horrible use of the English language. Why don't you go back to school?

Why don't *you* watch something other than The Blue Collar Comedy Tour or Miracle on Ice and realize that I was alluding to a song from The Wiz?

You're a silly goose who is obviously very ignorant of Black culture. I bet that if I had alluded to "It Ain't Necessarily So" from Porgy and Bess, you would have "corrected" that as well.

BTW, listening to Motown with you must be a *real* chore...when you hear Smokey Robinson sing "I Second That Emotion", you probably mutter to yourself "Uh, what a dummy...that should be 'I Second That Motion'".

Glad I don't live in MN if these comments are representative of the mindset that exists there.

"The Wiz" was one of the biggest box office
turkeys in Hollywood history. People will be
snoring in the movie house, like they did over
30 years ago. There's a reason Wacko never
became a movie star.
