Find Me On:
I agree. Not that movies should teach young people history, but last year when I told a white student that he could not paint his face brown to look more “Mexican” in a video he was making, he had no idea about the horrible, racist implications that action possessed. He did not know what a minstrel show was, nor did his mother. So maybe the movies will learn them about it?
Because thats what this movie is about right? Minstrel shows?
Pants get lost at dry cleaners all the time, the world is an imperfect place.
I was just telling my students that they all need to become engineers and not massage therapists but I guess I should have told them they need to become engineers instead of film students making a documentary about James Franco, the professor. Much better example.
