Resolved Question: Are we now into black
known but great James Baskett, Hattie McDaniel starring in the great old disney movie "Song of the South" Not only is it a warm hearted movie, but it also shows how the slaves of the old south before the civil war were not all mistreated. It has no sex or violence and lets the younger generation in on some of truth as to how our customs and our culture was. Yes, but why should we be subject to people of imagined sensitivities, They do not like the way they were in that period, and do not realize how they had to struggle to gain respect, with a poor education system they did very well with life in general and overcame adversity. James Baskett was not allowed in to watch the primier in Atlanta,but did not complain, knowing how fruitless it would be against the 'good ole boys' that ran the government.
