I’ve complained once or twice about Mike Binder‘s Black or White, a film about an inter-racial child custody battle, having been kicked around by politically correct lefties. Yesterday Binder, myself and Rogerebert.com critic Glenn Kenny discussed this and related racial issues. Binder got to explain himself and his film in a way that sheds a little light. The conversation would have been livelier if we hadn’t been so considerate and fair-minded with each other. Somewhere around the two-thirds mark things picked up when Kenny slapped me around for not being manly enough when it comes to handling the natural slings and arrows that come with being a samurai poet columnist. Again, the mp3.

(l. to r.) Black or White director-writer Mike Binder, Rogerebert.com critic and SomeCameRunning ruminator Glenn Kenny, and myself.
