Just watched it again after 10 years. Holds up well over time, good movie, moving. Makes me remember a time when most of America was truly serious about race relations. Nothing like today, the great race to victimhood.

All this stuff about making everything "equal..." it's not that simple. Now you've got this book "Native Son." What happened to the other books in the course? They're not good anymore because Mr. Two Ph.Ds says so? Now you got to trade great books for black books? Does that make sense? You gotta question these things, Der. You gotta look at the whole picture. We're talking about books...but we're also talking about my job. I've got two black guys on my squad now who got their job over a couple of white guys who actually scored higher on the test. Does that make sense? Everything's "equal" now, but I've got two guys watching my back...responsible for my life...who aren't as good. They only got the job because they were black, not because they were the best

Relax...as soon as we socialize medicine, they’ll be surgeons and outta your hair.
