By making such a big deal of all this it implies that you feel these movies have had or will have an impact on people's perceptions in regards to race. Am I wrong in saying this? The point of placing these subliminal messages would be to reach people and sway their opinions in some way. I really dont think anyone has ever seen King Kong or LOTR and come out of the theater with a different stance on race or any pertinant issue for that matter. So basically, why should we care? If I have kids, I wont be worried about them seeing King Kong and growing up with some complex about dating small white women. I think I'll have bigger issues in mind when considering things I want to protect them from. I place this in the same category as Jesse and Al boycotting Barbershop...ridiculous.
