Speilberg, superficial and pretentious?

WHAT?!?!?!

Someone thinks a SPEILBERG MOVIE is "superficial" and "pretentious"??????

I'm SHOCKED!!!

I would never expect such a thing from the man who brought us E.T., A.I. and Close Encounters.

Kong? Racist?

I understand the concept of a metaphor. I get it.

But shouldn't people be worried about non-metaphorical racism? I mean, how about how a law-abiding black man who gets pulled over in his car for a routine traffic stop? How does the police officer treat him? That's a potential for racism that's NOT a metaphor!

When I read this, I just sighed. I'm so tired of people finding racism everywhere they look. It distracts from the legitimate problems, and makes people tired of the whole subject. As a result, nothing will be done about that guy in his car, at the mercy of a cop with who-knows what preconceptions.

Wait a minute...

So the Iranian president says the holocaust never happened but that Israel should be moved to Europe because they were the ones who persecuted them.

Wuh?

So, did it happen, or didn't it happen? I think his turban is on too tight.

Yeah, they should only attack people for legitimate reasons, like stealing their money.
