2. You haven't noticed that row of pretty boxes marching across
the top of the page? Click on the words "Big Board" to see the whole collection.

4. I brought up how '24' perpetuates the Muslim-Bad Guy myth, and was told by DUers to "get over it"
Just about anytime you see Arabs or Muslims portrayed in Hollywood, they're either inept or bad guys, like the video says. Yet when I brought up this point awhile back, many DUers told me to just enjoy it for what it was, that it was "just entertainment", yadda yadda yadda.

6. When I saw "Alladin" as a child, the caricature didn't occur to me at all.
It dawned on me when I saw that clip.
