  1. Alamo Bay, directed by Truffaut, is an excellent movie about the KKK's persecution of Vietnamese fishermen Houston in the early 80s. Mention it because if you haven't seen it, it may be of interest. Thank God Houston has come a long way since then, but Texas is still full of these types of pockets, as is much of the South. The laws and court systems down here seem to have been designed to circumvent the fourteenth amendment and the Civil Rights Act as much as possible.
