omg, I just watched another movie about race and religion that made me cry and feel soulful. The grace card made me wish everyone could watch it. wish everyone could understand this feeling of all Gods children are the same. I remember when i was 2 yrs old, my dad who had custody of me had left me with a black preachers family. a little total blonde white girl and I remember thinking they were my family because they treated me the same as their little girl and boy. this movie had me remember. my mom was very predudiced and came to see me and cried because i told her the little kids were my brother and sister what an experience. even I have dealt with predudices from other races. Anyway, just had to say, this was a beautiful soulful movie if you get a chance to watch . or have you seen it? If you dont believe or are predudiced please dont comment. ok?

My mom was raised in a very prejudiced southern type family. She did her best not to be, and I think we, as her children are even less so. She commented once, when she was in her 50's about a couple that came to my dad to see some rentals he managed. The man was very black, the woman was very blonde, and also very blind. Mom said that she could not see what color he was, only how he treated her.In my opinion we should all be that blind. I also respected my mother for continuing to grow and learn as she got older.

oh GardenGerty my dad w as so prejudiced against blacks, retarded people and crippled people and get this he was a country doctor.His father was a minister and his mom was an ?English woman so where did he get those prejudices surely not from them.In one apartment complex where we lived was a couple with the man a negro and the woman a blonde American woman and they were so delightful to talk to as they were newly wed and so in love.Some of the other tenants slighted them, but a lot more were friends with them.Sadly someone threw eggs and black crap allover the front of their apartment and in a week they had moved out.I hate things like that.It was good your mom grew out of her prejudices. more power to her.

sadly my mom never grew out of hers. i was sent to live with her when i was almost 6yrs. dad had to work and gave in to her sending me to school and all. he tried keeping me off and on but it didnt work. when i was younger she got mad at me for dating a hawian guy. anyway i was just saying how this movie really got to me and had me remembering some things.

I have not seen but it does sound interesting. I will see if I can find it on my Netflix. I was watching a movie last night called Red State. I thought it was pretty good. John Goodman was in it. It was about those religious cults that brainwash people. And they built this sorry looking compound. They were at the alter and they were sacrificing gay men. They thought that was evil and the right thing to do. It is amazing how crazy people still are these days.

I think the bigots seem to be growing not lessen. No, Red State is not a horror movie. Its about these radical religious people who hate everything that is not exactly the way they think. Especially the gay community.

I have not heard about this movie but will look out for it as I wojld love to see it. I hate racial predjudice. My husband was a mixture of Portuguese Jew and black and out children are obviously bi rcial as I am white. We made the choice to live in Jamaica as we did not want our children to experience any prejudice growing up and our children are all secure and happy adults.

kudos for you and your hubby. great idea to go where you are treated right. i really will be glad when this predudice is all gone from america and i do believe its getting close. i think it will never be all gone universally tho. i do kind of wish our president would stop bringing it up tho or maybe its just people that are for him. this should not have any influence on who can help our country. anyway, i loved the movie. think you will also.

I've not heard of this movie but I'd like to see it, and what a great story from your childhood! I think most people are accepting of other races and religions but we don't know it because the other type of people are so LOUD!! My grandpa was fond of saying that one day we'll all be one color, this was back in the 60s. He said the only thing sad about that is that we'd find something else to fight about. My other grandparents were very bigoted and used words that were offensive to me even when I did not know they were wrong. I hope I get to see this movie and that a lot of other people do, too. Unfortunately, most of the people who see it will already have its message in their hearts. It needs to reach the ones who hate.

Hi bunnybon I would love to watch this one for sure specially because you mention - it is about life. Unfortunately, we, people have created so many boundaries that many a times we forget the base reason for us to be on this planet - I personally feel that we all are born to love and live by the universal brotherhood thing. My parents and even grandparents(I need to mention my grandparents as during their days, life was more complicated as in their times, we had too much of caste-ism, racial discrimination here in India, but they were much more liberated and open in their views) never taught me and my brother about racism or differences due to work or anything else. We were always taught to love all - and one line I would love to quote from my late Grandfather - all of us have blood which is red in color and all of us have the same pain when we are hurt.

great saying your gramps had. when you see the movie theres a part in there where the little girl asks her mom about how a part could be put in a white person from a black and its the same answer. later in life i had experienced blacks being prejudiced toward me. which i could not understand either.
