2)  really slow (for mr. a.d.d anyway)

3)  But I'm so glad this movie was made.  So important.  These issues sooo need to be discussed.  In the beginning of the Movie, set in the early '60s, one of the actors said something like "we don't talk about this around here".  Well, obviously we've made some wonderful progress on many of these fronts, but WE STILL AREN'T TALKING about these issues.

We can't continue to make progress, until we acknowledge the atrocities we (or previous generations) made with the American Indians, with racial issues, and I'm sure plenty more.  This is complex stuff here.  So many unique perspectives.  No, Southerners aren't the only one's to blame.  But what does that matter.  Unbelievable mistakes have been made.  Let's acknowledge them, discuss them, and learn from them  Let's talk.
