    So I'm listening to the radio and a member of the actual team the movie is "based" on calls in and says the racial tension in the movie was way overblown. Sure, there were racists, he says, but the team was far more concerned with winning from the get-go. Was I there? Of course not, But that movie producers would bend the truth or lie to make a better story - i.e., more conflict - is so common that only the terminally naive would believe they don't. The Great Debaters is a milder case in point - they didn't debate Harvard, they debated USC. The change to Harvard was, IMO, racist in and of itself - was the Wiley team any less talented because they "only" beat USC?
