What's Worse -- to be a Racist or a Batterer?

July 18, 2010

Mel Gibson's stunningly obscene, racist, sexist and terrifying telephone rants to his girlfriend were hard to listen to.  I started boycotting Gibson's movies over 8 years ago because of his theme of excessive violence -- purely for entertainment.   I'm not the least bit surprised at the dark side he's finally revealed to the world.

It's our reaction to his words and actions -- including physical abuse of threats of violence against his girlfriend -- that I'm wondering about.  Huffington Post blogger Keli Goff raises some excellent questions in her commentary.  Click here to read "What Gibson, Brown and Polanski Teach Us."
