crash – the movie
‘the redemption of the white male’
<>racism as skeletons in the closet or better yet as zombies in the closet eating away at the longevity potentioal of all-white organizations in a post-colonial world. its not the racial politics of htis movie-even though this movie’s plot could have only been created for a primarily american audience who can watch two hour movie about race and never once allude to colonization but then i cant remember who it was who asked is it that other countries are post-colonization but the u.s. is ‘ethnic’. i have to just tell you that i am sitting outside on the steps and an old drunk white guy walked by and told me to promise him that he was going to make it to the liquor store two blocks away. he has epiliepsy—and i half way promisedhim–thought there might be chance. but now i have to go inside because i dont want to be here when he returns.
it is the sexual politics that bother me so far in the movie. (i have seen half of the movie) the gender politics which have made me nauseous.
