See, I never really understood this logic. A minority can get away with more **** in the present day simply because they had a really hard time historically.
That really hamstrings society's ability to progress and become a fair and balanced place, IMO.
Not sure I think this movie is guilty of any of that, but do not agree with the reasoning behind that at all.
