I spent ten years living in Alabama. Consequently, I came to understand the southern mindset. Tom Sizemore did an excellent job portraying a southerner in the midst of a moral dilemma. Not only does Sizemore's character reach out to a member of the American-African race, he reaches into his memories and beliefs. Many people are still under the impression that all southerners do not befriend anyone not of their race. That is not the case. They embrace people of all races and religions...and do not idly stand by to watch them suffer needlessly. Yes, the Klan still exists, but its power is greatly diminished in this enlightened age. Mr. Sizemore's performance made the average modern southern man come to life. Kudos to Tom on an excellent performance!
