Mississippi Burning Civil Rights, Again




The 1988 film Mississippi Burning features Gene Hackman and Willam Defoe as FBI agents investigating the murder of three civil rights workers in 1964 amidst a local environment of ignorance and hostile racist culture in Mississippi.

Four decades later, the deep south hasn't changed. Ignorance and bigotry continue to rule in Jackson, Mississippi, where high school officials recently chose to cancel the high-school prom rather than allow a lesbian student to attend the event with her girlfriend.

Mississippi "school board", meet Gene Hackman:

Homosexuality is deviant behavior, engaged in by defective humans. It has nothing whatsoever to do with race. Only the weak-minded would draw a parallel between the two.

Be happy - hetero men are excited by lesbians. I don't mind.
I don't mind homosexuals eiher - it is their right and their choice.
It is by definition a 'behavior' that is not going to be more widespread than it was 1000 years ago. Everybody live his/her life as he wished as long as he/she does not harm the other. Love one another!
