  • Discusses how Gone with the Wind is taught in film school: “There was no discussion afterward for historical context, no discussion about Hattie McDaniel and Butterfly McQueen in those stereotypical roles,” he says. “It was, ‘Wasn’t it great?,’ and that was it.”
  • Is obsessed with the "okey-doke": "the tricks...--the skulduggery, the shenanigans, the subterfuge and the bamboozlement-that straight, white American men masterfully use to stay in control"
  • Never wants to be sanitized, seen as "safe," or have a watered down legacy, like many African-American figures before him
