    What I object to is the whitewashing of a black film.

    Gone from this bit of nostalgic history is the problems that were sprung upon the Korean community by the black community.

    That makes the experience of seeing the film feel more authentic, to have the police hassling you.

    Pretty sure NWA were never a black film.

    Early on, the report I read was that preemptive protection was requested by the theater owners. Kevin Powell is being disingenuous and is only looking to stay noticed in the current black outrage vogue. Theater owners want to make money, but don't want their theaters trashed what with visuals being seen of late in places like Ferguson.

    I could be wrong but didn't the NWA rap about drugs and gang life? cant imagine there would be any problems at a cultural documentary glorifying the foundations of the most violent segment of the U.S. populace.

    So, what you're saying is that we should have extra security outside any movie glorifying the Mafia? Hell, SWAT teams should be stationed at every theater for premieres of every Martin Scorsese film, since so many of them depict and glorify the worst of the worst mobsters.

    Or does that only apply to violent black criminals?

    A Scorsese film during the heyday of the Mafia? Yeah, I would have expected beefed up security - especially if it was a biopic.

    I'd also expect additional security at a biopic about MS-13 or the Aryan Brotherhood.

    I can't wait for the 2 Live Crew documentary. First silent movie since, well, "Silent Movie."

    You mean the most violent segment of the US populace, apart from the foreign policies which allow the murder and desecration of muslims in the middle east right?

    That wouldn't be a segment of the populace, that would be a national policy, if you disagree with it I'm sure there's another thread to argue about whether the U.S. should be in an international war.

    you could paint a house in one stroke with the brush you just used.

    criminal gang members need a tourniquet to the neck so they can get away from the violent stupidity they engage in.

    The movie was decent, not great or memorable. Plus, I doubt half of it was true.

    As far as beefed up police at certain theaters, I agree with that decision. Especially the theaters in the hood or the ones where many from the hood go to. This movie was reminiscent of a certain era, and you do have idiots that probably what to relive that era by doing something stupid. Fortunately, every thing went well.

    I remember the movie theater I used to go to had metal detectors, cause idiots would have shoot outs.

    It was a joke ;). I agree gangs are worse than the police.

    I want to read Luke's Book. I saw a interview of him recently and he spoke on some interesting things. I didn't know he actually design the explicit label we all see today.

    There was no mention in the movie of attacks on women or the burning of Korean-owned stores the ground.

    Michelle Malkin takes us back to some of the bad old days absent in this nostalgic slickly produced flick with heavy involvement by its rich and famous subjects. And she correlates it with similar activity taking place today.

    I haven't seen the movie, probably never will, but all the outrage surrounding it stinks of this new "no, everyone else is the real racists" trend we've been seeing a lot of recently.

    This isn't a documentary. Who says these things need to be mentioned?
