Jewish Producer Speaks Out About His Experience Working With Mr. Midnight Movies' No White Guilt Show

One day a big man came to me and said "I want to put on a multi-media show that will discuss some inflammatory aspects of our culture."  I told him to "count my honky ass in."  Thus began our journey to the land of milk n honey.  Or so I thought.  Seems there's been a great number of roadblocks that stand in our way to just do what we felt is a slam dunk.  Our notion of the destruction of some of America's most sacred artifacts isn't as easy of a sell as we imagined for one simple fact that Mr. Midnight Movie himself suggested: "We all walk on eggshells because of the political and cultural climate of today."  Well said, big man.

The next day, I recommended to the big man that Blog Talk Radio would be an interesting format to test market our brand of political and social unrest reconstruction. I thought it would last one show, but it has somehow continued on now for a couple of years.  Along the way we have met an interesting cross-section of people, including a retarded man from China, a green blooded monster in Texas, a dead wrestler, dedicated listeners, socialists, separatists, rapists, hacks, trolls, gangsters, dictators, sweet honey bears, straight racists, murderers, talk radio lovers, straight haters, drunks, sluts, lesbians, queers, a variety of blacks/Asians/Mexicans, an albino, a clown, a child-abuser, and Mr. Solution.

Now Mr. Solution attempts to spread fear through his verbal might.  Damn be anyone who won't have it.  And damn those who disagree.  See the thing I fear most, as one of my heroes Charles Bukowski once said, is "The thing I fear discriminating against is humor and truth."  See, I have my doubts that Mr. Solution has any real sense of humor, and for him, truth is concealed only in a box with 6 sides. 

The concept of white guilt has never really been of much noted interest to me.  Despite Solution's assertions I never pulled any strings to this regime.  The topic meant nothing to be before I met Mr. Midnight Movie, and now the phrase has become packed with meaning.  Blanket messages aside, I now look forward to Mr. Midnight Movie's next white guilt lecture.  My role, however minuscule in these "teachings" is being that mirror that MMM requires to find clarity, singularity and truth in what he is attempting to present to a growing legion of citizens of the world. I've accepted my role with scrutiny and belief in the ability to accept perspective and opinion and adopt it with my world views.  But in the two times that I've engaged Mr. Solution in speak, he has erred in favor of censorship, might makes right.

Maybe there is a sensationalizing of the facts behind what Mr. Midnight Movie finds of particular relevance.  It don't bother me none because his concerns are as real as he makes them to be which leaves me to judge independent of his thoughts.  Mr. Solution would rather indict on principle.  Mr. Solution sides with censorship in exchange for his manifesto, a transparent attempt to deny another of his soul.  His witch-hunting is insignificant and galling.  In a world that requires the opposite to take charge, all I can hope for is that all points of view can be shared with the promise of understanding and limited belligerence.
