It's about as funny as 'Birth of a Nation"
23 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

IT's racist and vile. Nice reminder. Keep it circulating, lest we forget. The Black people are drawn to look like monkeys. The women are pure mammies. The one attractive woman is about 10 shades lighter than the other Blacks. A lot closer to the White norm.

Racism and scatologia are two very different things. Racism is about life, and necessarily has a 'victim'. Scatalogia is a deviant taste, fetish, gross subject and is victimless - until people start throwing poop at innocent bystanders.

These events and this ideology isn't far removed from us (me). These ideas were prevalent in my father's time, all my aunts and uncles, my grandparents. The people who maintained this way of thinking didn't just disappear when Black folks moved from the back of the bus. Therefore, this video is offensive, and my 'sensibilities' aren't narrow. The history of the world and especially of America demands my awareness.
