How Jack Became Black by The Elephant's Child

This goes well with the Heather MacDonald post. We have long considered Race to be both a big deal and in some way defining, but if you give it a little serious thought, it is our bureaucracies at all levels that demand that we give race importance in places where it shouldn’t matter.  When my health insurance demanded to know what my race was, I got my back up, and refused. The bureaucracies demand to know, because they have to put it down on a list which will go on to higher levels of bureaucracy until it reaches the level where some senator can use the statistic in a speech.

This is a trailer for a film about which I know nothing more than this trailer. May be preachy and obnoxious, or may be good, but I thought the trailer was interesting. Do we add Elizabeth Warren to the discussion?

ADDENDUM: Why do the world’s worst dictators want their military to do the goose step? If you’re at home, try it. It’s painful. Would take weeks of practice to get it right. Then try it with an imaginary rifle held across your chest, (a yardstick or mop handle would do) Then try to imagine the mind of the dictator. Free countries in the West just don’t do that nonsense.
