Happy Thanksgiving, race cars!  Avoid your racist family for a few minites to listen to Kulap and Andrew discuss how come there are almost no Native Americans in the entertainment industry.  We also hear about the racism of pilot season and the dangers of Tofurkey!  Call in with your questions at (323) 389-RACE.

The two contemporary dramatic films dealing primarily with native-nation experience I've seen, SMOKE SIGNALS and EDGE OF AMERICA, were directed by the same guy. I like them both. Irene Bedard stars in both.

Yo, I don't see any difference between Johnny Depp as Tonto and any other character he's done for Burton. Tonto was never representive of Native Americans and is just as cartoonish and mythological as Edward Scissorhands or Willy Wonka.
