"Now obviously I'm just as opposed to people using the N-word as the next person, (okay, maybe more so since I am Black) but I was personally through with Gibson after 'Sugartits Gate.' My theory has long been that those who don't care for Jews rarely care for Blacks, so I wasn't exactly shocked when it was alleged that Gibson doesn't have the warm fuzzies for my kind, despite his buddy routine with Danny Glover in the Lethal Weapon franchise. But despite my opposition to hate speech, what our moms taught us as kids holds true: 'Sticks and stones can break my bones but words will never hurt me.'

"Sensitively told but unflinching in its determined frankness about several prickly, taboo topics, "La Mission" delves into the emotional thickets of homophobia, ethnic identity, domestic as well as street violence, and generational conflict.

And when their behavior doesn't replicate 50 Cent, we verbally abuse them and strip away their self-esteem.

"So speaking up for themselves seems to do more harm than good."

"School shootings, a relatively new phenomenon, are increasing. A new generation of girls who don't consider themselves feminists and people of color who oppose affirmative action may find themselves against a wall -- or a glass ceiling -- they thought their mothers had climbed over. All in all, reading "Guyland" has the same effect on a liberal as a good horror movie; it makes you terrified of something you're so used to that you probably manage to ignore it most of the time."
