Was "Walkout" (2006 HBO movie about the 1968 Mexican walkout and the Chicano movement) stupid?

  • All the way! This movie makes it seem that white people were secretive in their racism, in California; and their plots were secretive (stupid comment)

    NO, IT WASN'T. NEWSFLASH. Mexicans were subjected to the same exact things blacks were subjected to -- exclusion and lynching. Whites were OPENLY racists everywhere in America -- to every race that wasn't white -- not just blacks. Mexicans were beaten if they walked into a white neighborhood. There was no difference in beliefs West or South. White people were racist to non-whites everywhere.

    This movie makes it seem that Mexicans had rights, which is completely stupid and silly. Mexicans were openly hated and murdered.
