There's a stupid coumnist in today's NZ Herald newspaper who is all
excited about the movie ... because it has black characters and actors
in important roles (the usual bollocks about being able to finally see
"people like me on the big screen"), as if there has never been black
actors in anything else. That's racist too!
It's a movie and it should be judged, advertised, and (over)hyped
according to the storyline, the acting ability, etc. ... NOT the
irrelevant colour of the actors skin or their gender or their religious
