Storyline
Decorated Vietnam hero Frank Vega returns home only to get shunned by society leaving him without a job or his high school sweetheart. It's not until forty years later when an incident on a commuter bus (where he protects an elderly black man from a pair of skin heads) makes him a local hero where he's suddenly celebrated once again. But his good fortune suddenly turns for the worse when his best friend Klondike is murdered and the police aren't doing anything about it.

WTF!!!!!


Poetic license - n.
Writers adapting a work for another medium (e.g., a film screenplay from a book) often make significant changes, additions to, or omissions from the original plot in the book, on the grounds that these changes were necessary to make a good film.[9] These changes are sometimes to the dismay of fans of the original work.

oh, and its fucking EPIC that Ron Perlman has such an awesome sense of humor to be in this flick.

Ron Perlman is a mudshark himself. Of course he would support something like this.

Seriously, it's Hollywood; why are you all acting so surprised?
Look at the vast majority of your film makers.

Granted, they altered and added A LOT of extra material to the story.
There’s no other way to stretch a four-minute Youtube video into a full-length feature film.
The writers/director/producers will no doubt offer that as a response to critics.

But honestly, was there a “need” to change the races of the protagonist, antagonist, innocent bystander, etc.?
Did it do anything to enhance or improve the story?
What is the explanation behind that decision?

Although the answer seems obvious, my post you quoted is not rhetorical, but rather a legitimate question.

Here's another:
If the actual event happened as in the fictional account, would they have altered it the other way around?

Allow me to answer for I am not only imminently qualified but I am also (due to being as totally negro as our current Presidente')  immune to bullshit liberal rebuttals.

It is because of a combination of self-deprecation on the part of pussbag liberals of non-colour (i.e., Liberal White Guilt) and a fear of being labeled a racist by social stalwarts like the Reeeeeeeeeeeverned Jackson and the desire to supplicate (i.e., kiss the collective ass) of people that are not black, but are actually what the comic Chris Rock has labeled "n iggers" (lame that one must spell it thus to avoid the censor here).

Black people hate n iggers too.  Just as white people despise the klan types out there, so too do cultured people that happen to be black but don't think or feel that skin color defines them, loathe the klan's counterpart of the color of culture, the n iggers. 

My mom used to tell me the only time color should matter is when you're picking out clothes, a new car or other such goods.

why is he kicking a caricature of skinhead???

i think it's embarassing for everybody (black and white) because everybody knows the true story, ghetto thug and female chimp vs an old man...

What the fuck?

The most important part of the story (Race) was completely discarded...  I fucking hate Hollywood.

Still awesome that someone had the sack to put up the money and do a legit movie loosely built around Epic Beard Man.

All they did was make a disrespectful mockery of Tom Bruso.

I agree on the bullshit, but if they put this movie out of an angry white man kicking the shit out of black guys, the black community would fucking raise hell about racism in america, lawsuits, bullshit, Rev Jackson, rioting, etc. Imagine if it came out the right way and it blew up? Theyd become martyrs, itd become a symbol of white racism to them.
They want to get laughs and make money, white people can take a joke, a large potion of the black community cant.
Simple as that.
