    For anyone interested on FX(channel 49 in the Los Angeles Area) American History X is on from 5pm - 8pm. It's a great movie if you haven't seen it, most people have. If you don't have it on DVD, like me; then the only time you get to see it is when it's on TV. It's really racist but, it has a damn good plot and he gets his in jail. Happy Watching ^_^.

    no point watching it on network television. The movie looses it's point without the violence and language.

    American History X is alright. It's very well acted, so it's entertaining to watch, but it's really not as deep as people make it out to be. "Racism is bad" is about as deep as it gets...

    The rational to why they become racist and become arian members in American History X follow why black gangs where formed in the past. Gangs where originally formed to keep drug dealers out of neighborhoods and then taken to the extreme. Same with the white gangs formed in American History. They banded together to try and make their neighborhood safer and what not but took it to the extreme. That's my take on it anyway.
