Opportunity for racial discussion

I just wanted to say “thank you!” I heard about the movie from a friend of mine, who told me, “Go see it then call me back.” His recommendation, which I agree with, is that “Crash” was a great lead into conversations about racism in modern America. Right on!

We don't often get such opportunities in everyday life. My friend and I both feel that frank discussions about racism are discouraged, so we really enjoyed not only the movie but the opportunity it provided.

So thank you for sticking up for it, and seeing through Scott Foundas's, Dave White's and Jim Emerson's jaded facades.
