This is another piece of unrealistic propaganda from Hollywood. The movie is boring trite and unrealistic. In an age where people divorce over their partner's brand of toothpaste it clings to the fiction that people of different races can "all just get along together". Its not just nonsense its dangerous nonsense because it appeals to impressionable minds.
