Gentleman's Agreement

I've been really mouthy on my personal Facebook page about the election, but not at all on my author page.
Kelly the author is like Switzerland,
although they are probably shit scarred right now too.
I'll just say I watched Gentleman's Agreement the other day on Netflix. Never seen it before.
If you don't know, it's about a reporter who passes himself off as Jewish to experience firsthand the prejudice and derision of his fellow mankind and womankind, in order to write a story.
I thought the bigotry would be watered down, but nothing was sugarcoated and no one was immune from scrutiny.
From a romance standpoint, I preferred Ann to Kathy.
On the story front, I found it frightening,
as if it might be our future rather than our past.
I'm also not sure how brave I'd be in a similar situation.
I don't really want to find out.
