Something is awesome in the state of Denmark.
|Song of the South Review|
Some of my ancestors owned slaves. Either they treated them relatively well, or they were so good at psychological oppression that the black family apparently chose to stay on their property and work for or alongside them (they weren't sharecroppers) for generations after the abolishment of slavery.
None of that matters. The institution of slavery is and was 100% evil, no matter what the material conditions actually were. Song of the South is a delightful movie in itself, but it is also incredibly irresponsible in its portrayal of history. It deserves every bit of the criticism it receives. Impressionable/uneducated people (e.g., children) could watch this film and come away thinking slavery was not only a walk in the park, but also some sort of idyllic paradise for both blacks and whites alike. In the best of cases, it was far, far from that.
The fact that presumably well-meaning people still feel the need to try and deny or soften a completely appropriate collective feeling of resentment about this part of American history seems to indicate that we are not, as a society, ready for a re-release of this film.

|Don't disrespect my child, I don't sell crack!|
Get back in your chat hole, arthropod. Most of us here have more valuable things in life to worry about than our reputations as self-identified intellectuals on the internet. We use this site to blow off steam--not each other.
You're not going to get in many exciting slapfights here. You're just going to be smothered in stupidity/mock intolerance until you shut up and schlep your miserable carcass back to the unaired cellar of despair that is poe news. So fuck along, now.

More of a bluish-purple, according to American and Caribbean blacks.
|Helen Thomas has lost her mind.|
American Indians allied with the French and sent troops to join French forces during the Seven Years War. Sometimes people are brown, what can you do.
|Terry Jones - Never Be Rude To An Arab|
At this point, poenews should be an exhibit on poe red. Seriously. I don't think I've ever encountered such a catty, pathetic assemblage of the broken and miserable in my entire internet career. At this point, the site is basically anaerobic. I wish they would quit bothering Chet with their petty nonsense.
Also, if people quit saying "faggot," the internet dies.
|Keith Olbermann interviews SC senate candidate Alvin Greene|
I wonder if Mr. Greene worked as a gardener at any point before he made his foray into politics.
|Egyptian prophet - If the Earth is so heavy, how's it been hanging there for 4.5 billion years?|
It looks like he has an electric mole.
|Orly Taitz vs The Painter Of Pancakes|
Why hasn't anyone sued Taitz for defamation? Her entire "career" is based on easily controvertible defamatory statements against government officials.
|'What do you think I fought for at Omaha Beach?' sung a capella by amazing chamber singers|
It's ma'am, I think.
|26 Mile Prayer Event|
When Katrina hit New Orleans, it was God's divine judgment passing over a den of lasciviousness and paganism.
The oil spill, however, is merely a test of the spiritual fortitude of God's true (white) elect, and has nothing to do with His righteous fury over our incessant violation of His delicate ecological masterpiece.
|Bad Romance - student production|
I think she's had quite enough ugly and disease already.
|Tea Party National Anthem? Powerful Music Video 'Freedom'|
Nickelback and this song are both part of a genre that my friends and I have christened "chode rock."
|Dennis Hopper recites If by Rudyard Kipling|
I prefer Richard Pryor's recitation of "The White Man's Burden" myself.
|Glenn Greenwald Destroys Elliot Spitzer|
Spitzer, you ignorant slut! And your sluts are ignorant sluts as well!
|What just happened???|
I've seen my stoner friends do this when one of them says something really awkward/inappropriate and they're all too high to deal.

Bears don't need weapons. They're BEARS.
|Bucket Head attacks a VIP car on Kremlin Quay|
|Free rice club rising|
Well, I guess he just better get his crippled ass up and find a job. That or use all of the excess money left over after his medical expenses to write a blank check to Liberia. Maybe he can pawn off that ventilator...
