Snippets and Notes:
"There was a time when I could have had you shot," said the whimpering racist man as he stood among his flowers. The blue-eyed, white-supremist, pansy-man-villain watched in shock as the chief did nothing to arrest Mr. Tibbs as he walked out of the (progressively growing hotter) greenhouse. Only one thing left for a man this offended (and incredibly white) to do; hope the butler doesn't revolt and leave him with no one to bring him pitchers of soft and cool lemonade. Or maybe, say, I don't know, set a group of a Confederate flag-flying white boys after the black man that dared to make him get all teary-eyed. And so off they go to surround the half-human negro that insulted white America (just by being alive and in a nice suit) with pipes and (oh, what's that?) chains.

and now (for something completely different...)
It was hard not to notice that both "Lethal Weapon" and "In the Heat of the Night" had (naked) girls causing problems or that the black men in the aforementioned movies just know how to dress better than the rest of the awfully pale people. Also, like King told us (Neil that is), the black guys in these two movies are smoother and somewhat sweeter. One of these days, those crazy white cops are going to have to learn not to be so rude. Maybe then will Riggs and (possibly) the chief have a chance at love, family, friends, and all that jazz. I'm not too sure they could handle it though and according to all the statistics King mentioned, cops rarely do have happy all-gathered-'round-the-fire families. It's probably for the best since we all saw what can happen to a mild-mannered family man when his darling daughter is threatened...then again that was kind of great, who doesn't want a dad who will turn crazy to rescue you (even thought it's sort of his fault you were in danger in the first place)?

Oh and I liked the pure white woman with the dead husband standing up for the black man (even though I think he can stand on his own but we need at least one pure good woman {though vengeful} every once in a while, right?)

and how about that (as usual completely repressed) sexual tension between Poitier and the white lady (yes, the pure one from above) he comforts?
