    Clint Eastwood is a handsome guy. Are you swayed by his good looks?

    Since when do racists 'distinguish' between assimilated and non assimilated people to broadcast their ignorance and prejudice? Have you even seen this film? One of the main characters flaws is his racist tendencies which informs a large part of the story and subsequent events.

    Clint Eastwood is a handsome guy. Are you swayed by his good looks?
    Angelina Jolie is a beautiful woman. Are you swayed by hers?

    Yes. Have you? Queue fly by.
    Yet you somehow missed the characters gradual shift. How is that?

    He was both the antagonist and the protagonist in the film?

    I’m sure you’re right. Does Clint start getting hysterical about global warming, too?

    What would your take be on this bit of Americana, limey? Did sweet Becky ask for it? She should have been wearing a burqua, am I right?

    Yes in a manner of speaking. He was the main lead with deep character flaws who finds a kind of redemption by finally seeing his ignorance and prejudice for what it is. Is that some kind of alien concept for you to understand? A protagonist isn't necessarily some flawless persona with no elements of the antagonistic associated. The best heroes tend to be those portrayed as actual human beings along with the best antagonists in that regard - aka not 'black and white'. 'Anti heroes' often work well in such regard also.

    I’m sure you’re right. Does Clint start getting hysterical about global warming, too?
    So you think Clint's character has undergone no shift at all by the climax of the film then? He's still the same racist as he was at the start? Seriously?

    Why you're bringing global warming into this is anyone's guess. Considering Clint's celluloid persona is rooted in the laid back and laconic 98% of the time (though certainly not dispassionate) I'm not sure why you're bringing 'hysterical' into the equation either.

    What would your take be on this bit of Americana, limey? Did sweet Becky ask for it? She should have been wearing a burqua, am I right?
    Sorry but I'm not wasting megabytes on country music thanks, I can't stand it for the most part and certainly not Kenny Rogers. Give me the gist and why on earth I might think "Becky asked for it", and be very careful with what you're implying as well frankly.
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    Of course it's wicked. So now that you know the term 'zipperhead' is a racial slur you won't be using it again then will you?

    What in the world does this have to do with anything? Songs do not an argument make SD. There's one I have by The Grey Wolves called "Clandestine Amerikkka" but I ain't gonna use it as part of debate. For Pete's sake grow up and address the topic directly, if you're capable that is.

    Which I should already realize you aren't but hey, hope springs eternal I guess....
