did you enjoy the flick?

i know what you are talking about though...and the racial remarks and stereotypes made the movie what it is but no one is up in arms about that

i am in my little burb in MN, not a lot of blacks or asians where i live...but i happened to see the movie twice this weekend (don't ask) and the first time at least 60% of the theater was black or asian...the second time a huge percentage was as well

the point being...the movie poked fun at the stereotypes and those groups people would assume might be most offended were the ones coming in drones and laughing with the film

i know you see GLAAD's point, but i still don't...it's humor, it's satire...it's a fucking joke...for them to assume audience aren't "sophisticated" enough (their words, not mine) is very pretentious and high and mighty of them

people will get it...those who don't get it will never get it and there's no point in worrying about them...they'll inbreed themselves into algae one of these days
