Racial Tension in McNeal County
27 April 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

KKK-lookalike members portray black men in their "attack" on a prominent businessman's(William Windom) daughter in an attempt to cease banking support of the new black-businessman-owned Farm Machinery Store (appears to be an IH dealer).I wonder if this is the first time a prime time TV show has portrayed a Klu Klux Klan-type cult? The big flaw here is the fact that the evidence Mr Pusser uses to determine the attackers were white men in black face is not believable.Black makeup was found on the victims clothing indicating the attackers got ahold of her and rubbed their faces against her.....yet,her car doors were locked and windows rolled up....they never touched her or her clothes before they were ran off by a motorist who come across the scene.This continuity error sticks out like a sore thumb.I bet the attack scene was filmed prior to a script change,and nobody thought of viewing the footage....and then ordering a re-shoot.
