2. Stupid is certainly the operative word here.
Unfortunately, this kind of racism is widespread and it's becoming more open today again since the days of MLK. It seems we are moving backwards instead of forwards. It's too bad that people like Mel Gibson, who seem to have some influence on the Jesus people, don't use that clout for something useful like diffusing racism instead of a violent film that is scaring everyone to death who has any sense at all.
