More on neurological syndromes that impact racism - a genetic alteration (I don't like the word "defect") called "Williams syndrome" that results in loss of ability to interpret social cues, and also loss of social fear. Apparently, people with that syndrome also show little or no racial bias. Dallas started a discussion on social fear and racism earlier - interesting topic.

Dallas,
Interesting speech there. I tried to embed that one too, and couldn't.

Daniel - "Reactionary Party of the New Confederacy" ... I like it.

Census - Not yet. Then again, this homeless hobo hasn't received a form yet. Will have to go seek one out.

It's time that the Republican Party rename itself to something more appropriate - I think "Anal Sphincter" party would be more appopriate, but that's an insult to a useful part of the human anatomy. Maybe the "Reactionary Party of the New Confederacy" although that's long, and Sarah palin would never be able to spell "Confederacy". They also need to change their logo - maybe change from an elephant to Jesus on a cross, with a "God Hates Brown People and Fags" scroll drifting in the clouds above his crown of thorns..... The insult of honoring the Confederacy, while ignoring or downplaying the enslavement of millions, is typical and despicable.

Dallas,
I did a search on Netflix and came up with only a few hits. THere was this one -

"The Blood of Jesus / Lying Lips 1941NR121 minutes
The classic films in this collection have one thing in common: accomplished, all-black casts. In The Blood of Jesus (1941), a virtuous woman (Cathryn Caviness) who's shot by her husband must choose between heaven and hell. Then, in Lying Lips (1939), two detectives (Carman Newsome and Robert Earl Jones) must rustle up some "ghosts" in order to exonerate a woman (Edna Mae Harris) who was wrongly convicted of murder."


It looks interesting.

James Earl Jones starred in "The Great White Hope" a film based on Jack Johnson's life. It's been a very long time since last I saw it, so I don't know how loosely it's based.
