^^^Is that the movie with Sidney Poitier? Naturally a huge bomb, even though it was a cheapie.
Must be a different movie than the one you're thinking of. Poitier is not in this one.

You're right, Harry Belafonte, not Sidney Poitier.

PS I'm pretty sure that "subtle" is not right. There's plenty of subtlety in the denialism right now and importing it into a reversal would be both dreary and pointless. In fact, it might end up implicitly avowing the nonexistence of racism. But sensitive and clever is always desirable.
