Racism: A Kind Of, Sort Of Watch-A-Macall-It...

Craig Bodeker's documentary 'A Conversation About Race' is still pertinent 5 years after its release as the sinister, but defiantly undefinable esoteric sin known as "racism" is, apparently, still haunting the land.

 Its brevity and its depth are what make it so compelling.

In the first five minutes of the documentary Bodeker demonstrates that there is actually no such thing as "racism".

He then spends the next 50 minutes illustrating that point by interviewing people from various walks of life (male/female, old/young, black/white).

It's also thought provoking in that it  highlights the extent to which so many people are not provoked to think.
