See this movie

I am a huge proponent for anything for equal rights of all kinds of all types of people. This documentary made by Morgan Freeman about how a Charleston, Mississippi highschool still has separate proms for whites and blacks. As if this is happening in this day and age. Yet another reason to love Morgan Freeman.

Best line from the trailer: "When theres a chance to make a change, why not take it?" This is so important and not only relates to race but also disability, elderly, homosexuality and the poor, among others. The youth of today, although they can be punks from time to time really re-affirm that the problems that some people in their 50-80s still have with outdated issues are not an issue for today's youth. This makes me happy.

This is a big step in the right direction that is 50 years behind the times. It starts Friday November 13th at Varsity Cinema in Toronto.
