the first time i heard ali g supposedly missuse the word "racialist" i thought it was hilarious but i am just rereading an amazing book CLOUDSPLITTER by a favorite author of mine which uses that word in an amazing account of the historical person john brown who was a controversial abolitionist (anti-slavery advocate)in the mid nineteenth century. 2 other amazing books by banks have been made into movies, atom egoyans " the sweet hereafter" and paul schraders "afliction". for my money banks is, story-wise, americas equivalent of mike leigh or ken loach.
