Be A Guy

Well I saw Selma- a movie you should see

In Did You See This? on January 24, 2015 at 10:32 pm

Well I saw Selma a movie you should see, though in my estimation there is no Oscar-winning acting going on.. I didn’t think LBJ came off as badly as expected and thought that Tom Wilkinson, as him, gave the best performance. I’m going to continue to refer to The Stars & Bars as the CSA Swastika.

The movie was not so compelling that I couldn’t wander off and consider how this era of our history might have been,under and gentler had J Edgar Hoover (and Roy Cohn) been able to express their homosexuality.

Now, more than ever, in our inequitable financial state it might behoove us to go and read Dr. King’s Montgomery address; which is badly edited in the movie.

“Thus, the threat of the free exercise of the ballot by the Negro and the white masses alike resulted in the establishment of a segregated society. They segregated southern money from the poor whites; they segregated southern mores from the rich whites;  they segregated southern churches from Christianity ; they segregated southern minds from honest thinking; and they segregated the Negro from everything. (Yes, sir) That’s what happened when the Negro and white masses of the South threatened to unite and build a great society: a society of justice where none would pray upon the weakness of others; a society of plenty where greed and poverty would be done away; a society of brotherhood where every man would respect the dignity and worth of human personality. (Yes, sir)”
