2 out of 5 snowstones

Racism in "Crash": a white woman thinking her Hispanic locksmith is a gang member; a black cop feeling uncomfortable about being an election prop; a white cop saving the life of a woman he harassed earlier for giving a black man a blowjob.
Racism not in "Crash": a major American city drowning because it is full of black people; nonwhite people living in abject poverty; plain, unjustified bigotry.
The main consequence of real racism is poverty, but almost everyone in "Crash" is affluent, if not filthy rich.
Hmmm... the people who made, saw and laureled this movie were also rich...
