leftist fascism?

Posted to Poetry and Politics

have you heard/read about rev. jesse jackson et al gripes with the film "Barbershop"?
that there is a certain scene that (he feels) is too irreverant to the memory of rosa parks and MLK jr.
though he admits to not having seen the film, he
and others (who have not seen the film either)
are calling for an immediate studio appology and
for the scene to be repealed in DVD distribution.
notably, the film was written directed and produced by
african americans.
