The book is White Out: The Continuing Significance of Racism
and yes, it really is the closest one. I have a hard time listening to nonfiction in audiobook form, so not many of my physical books here are are fiction.
"Wayne plays Colonel Kirby, the usual invincible John Wayne military commander, a Green Beret who leads all the operations and never suffers a scratch. Unlike the other white messiahs in the movies, Kirby is never tempted, never doubts, and never develops. The Green Berets
is static, with many battle scenes but no dramatic tension.
"The movie opens with a press conference in which the army explains that the United States is fighting for the South Vietnamese, who need and want Americans to protect them from the brutal Communists."
Said book also contains a card from hannahrorlove
, currently doubling as a bookmark. Happy slightly late birthday, Hannah!
ALSO. A huge, hearty thank you to tripperfunster
, whose glorious package of Canadian awesomeness arrived yesterday. YOU FOUND MIKE & IKES, OMGGGGG! I have been chowing down like a pro and all my Korean coworkers think ketchup chips are amazing. I'm going to frame RSL and put him on my fanart wall.
