2093: The first film to be shown inside the White House was "The Birth of a Nation", a racist epic that celebrates the Ku Klux Klan as "America's saviors." Would you ever watch this movie?

sounds like we need to tear down the white house and build a new one with no racist ties.

Oh good - how about in the middle of the country?

The movie became part of history when it was shown in the White House. Yes, I’d like to see it.

I saw it a long time ago ... very strange movie. It didn't look like any history I ever learned.

Do you remember how you came across the movie?

Oh gosh - no ... the tv was b&w and so it had to be years ago. It may have very well been during the turbulent 60s. I do know I saw it on tv and thought that it was crazy and who would ever think that it was the birth of any nation, let alone ours!

Yes.
I've know about it for a while, haven't gotten around to it.
