Re: Protest the Buffalo Soldier movie
I think people have missed the point that is causing the outrage. To throw around a name that has as much historical significance as "Buffalo Soldier" in such an crass and inappropriate manner is insulting. The reason why it is causing unrest, is because the movie has nothing to do with the Buffalo Soldiers! I'm getting tired of lokking for movies about the Buffalo Soldiers...and then seeing Joaquin Phoenix's face pop up. It's ridiculous. And to the foreigner who has no clue what he is talking about, please read a history book and see why it is such a slap in the face to create a film and nonchalantly name it "Buffalo Soldiers."
