    Is Clint Right?

    Eastwood thinks political correctness has made society humourless - Yahoo! India News

    "People have lost their sense of humour. In former times we constantly made jokes about different races. You can only tell them today with one hand over your mouth or you will be insulted as a racist," ...
    "I find that ridiculous. ... but we didn't think anything of it or have a racist thought. It was just normal that we made jokes based on our nationality or ethnicity. That was never a problem. I don't want to be politically correct.

    We're all spending too much time and energy trying to be politically correct about everything," he added.
    I AM DEPLORABLE.

    What's Clint's beef? Did Gran Torino get a lot of flack or something?

    He got a lot of beef here:

    Quote Originally Posted by Clint's Wikipedia
    2006, Eastwood directed two films about the battle of Iwo Jima in World War II. The first one, Flags of Our Fathers, focused on the men who raised the American flag on top of Mount Suribachi. The second one, Letters from Iwo Jima, dealt with the tactics of the Japanese soldiers on the island and the letters they wrote to family members. Both films were highly praised by critics and garnered several Oscar nominations, including Best Director and Best Picture for Letters from Iwo Jima. Director Spike Lee accused Eastwood of not including a single black person in the films. Eastwood responded that Lee was inaccurate, and that Lee "should shut his face."[18]

    Clint is right. This racist crap has gone way too far. Al Sharpton has made a career off of it.

    Do it. While not on the level of The Unforgiven, Clint Eastwood really knows how to tell a story that is both straightforward and multilayered.

    Huh. Weren't units in WWII segregated? Even if there weren't a black face throughout all the films, it would hardly be all that surprising either.

    They were, and I do not think any of the few black combat units were at Iwo.

    But, if you're Spike, you don't ket historical accuracy get in the way of personal agenda.

    Did the Marine Corps have black combat units during WWII? I know the Army did, but am unsure about the USMC.

    Re: Is Clint Right?

    Everyone knows clint refuses to cast blacks in prominent roles in his film. Just look at Bird....

    No, forget that. My bad.

    I meant to say Unforgiven.....

    ****, forget that one too.

    True Crime then....

    ****... nevermind.
