"Crash Moment"

Harpo Productions spokeswoman Michelle McIntyre said Winfrey "will discuss her 'crash moment' when her show returns from hiatus in September." / "Crash" is a film dealing with race relations. The phrase "crash moment" refers to situations where a party feels discriminated against on the basis of skin color.

The real moral to pull away from the movie CRASH might be that the one claiming a "crash moment" is the one needing to re-check and re-evaluate personal prejudices. Just my take.

Man, how pathetic is that. People are so touchy! The sad thing is there are real problems of racism and bias going on in the world and issues like this just trivialize them.
